You’re in the cockpit of the falcon and you need to save Princess Leia.

Do not push the red button yet, GO SOUTH first to the passenger and storage are. GO DOWN to leave the falcon and GO SOUTH to the flight deck. GO EAST on the battle deck to find a sign that says: Needs turbo. You don’t have one. GO EAST again to a hallway. The door north says: ‘Closed for the day’ so GO NORTH.

[Note: There are items here that you need but can’t see ..?!? Maybe a miss in the original program but only reading through the original program listing can get the available items.]

GET BLASTER and GET AMMUNITION to load the gun. Also GET TAPE.

[Note: It’s possible you encounter stormtroopers at random points. If you do, SHOOT STORMTROOPER]

Now GO SOUTH back to the hallway and GO SOUTH again to the end where you’ll hear stormtroopers. GO EAST into a decontamination room where you’ll find a necklace. GET NECKLACE and GO EAST to an interrogation room. Leia’s cape is here!

GET CAPE and now you can only GO WEST back to the decontamination room and GO WEST again to the end of the hallway. GO NORTH back to the hallway and GO WEST to the battle deck. GET FUEL and GO WEST to the battle cruiser and GO NORTH to the falcon. GO UP to enter the falcon and in this storage area DROP NECKLACE, then DROP CAPE and DROP FUEL. Time to get some more gear.

GO DOWN the ramp to leave the falcon and GO NORTH to the hallway. From here GO NORTH again to the computer center. Do as the crt-screen says: COPY TAPE to find out what’s on it. LOOK to see the plans and then GET PLAN. From here GO NORTH into the laboratory and be greeted by a scientist. SHOOT SCIENTIST to clear your path and GET DEVICE to take the cloaking device.

GET I.D. to get the ID card and GET TURBO to take the turboencabulator. Leave the room with GO SOUTH and GO SOUTH again into the hallway. GO WEST to the development lab and GO NORTH into a long corridor surrounded by labs. GO DOWN into a lab to find a laser gun. GET GUN and GO WEST back into the corridor. GO NORTH to the development lab and GO EAST back to the hallway.

GO SOUTH to the landing deck and GO UP into the falcon. Time to store more items: DROP DEVICE, then DROP GUN and DROP PLAN. Finally DROP TURBO.

GO DOWN to leave the falcon and GO SOUTH to reach the flight deck. GO EAST along the deck and GO EAST again to the hallway. GO SOUTH to the end of the hallway and GO WEST into the planning room. You startle the stormtrooper so you can easily SHOOT STORMTROOPER and you can now GET SCHEMATIC and GET KEYS. Also GET COMMUNICATOR and pay attention to what it says.

GO NORTH into the tractor beam control room. Of course you are authorized! PUSH BUTTON to switch off the beam. GO SOUTH back to the planning room and GO EAST into the hallway. GO NORTH further down the hallway and GO WEST to the flight deck. GO WEST further along the flight deck and GO NORTH to the falcon. Then GO UP to the storage room. DROP SCHEMATIC and keep the rest for now.

GO DOWN from the storage room and GO SOUTH on the flight deck. GO EAST along the flight deck and GO EAST again to the hallway. GO SOUTH down the hallway and GO DOWN into another hallway. GO NORTH to the officers lounge where you can find food. GET BIG MAC and GO SOUTH to the bathroom. READ GRAFFITI to learn some security details.

GO UP into the tunnel and GO NORTH along the tunnel. Then GO NORTH into the maze of pipes. Luckily there’s a map here so GET MAP and GO NORTH into the maze. GO UP to find a jail below you. GO DOWN to enter jail. The doors are locked but fortunately you have the keys: OPEN DOOR and then DROP KEYS.

GO SOUTH to find Princess Leia. GET PRINCESS and GO NORTH back to the other cell. GO WEST to a security desk where you’ll find an angry robot. FEED ROBOT to calm him down and GO NORTH to the elevator. GO UP a floor and GO SOUTH to the interrogation room. GO WEST to the decontamination room and GO WEST to the hallway.

GO NORTH into the hallway and GO WEST to the flight deck. GO WEST to the battle cruiser and GO NORTH to the falcon. GO UP into the storage room of the falcon. DROP MAP and DROP PRINCESS. Now for the final stretch. GO DOWN to leave the falcon and GO NORTH into the hallway. GO EAST to the vault. Since it’s authorized personnel only you can GO EAST again to the main door of the vault.

When asked who’s there, SAY SECURITY and now it wants some ID. SHOW I.D. and you’re in! GET CRYSTALS and GO WEST to leave the vault. GO WEST again into the hallway. GO SOUTH to the falcon and GO UP into the storage room. DROP CRYSTALS and GO NORTH to the cockpit.

SAY SESAME to open the flight deck doors and PUSH BUTTON to launch the falcon. You saved Leia!
