I don't think I even have a copy of the game anymore. But that's just as well. It is very much a product of its time, it is half doom half platformer, with a hint of star wars flavor. It is really not up to current standards of what a star wars adventure game should be.
Just watching that trailer video gave me a headache..... guh the engines were so janky back then.

Doom with Stormtroopers with horrible graphics, but it sounded like Star Wars if you had a soundblaster. 94-95? It made Duke Nukem look like a hi resolution technical masterpiece.
