The reason Star Wars – Return of the Jedi – Ewok Adventure was never released, had to do with its controls. According to programmer Larry Gelberg: ‘I had this artistic vision of the purity of the hang-glider controls: forward dives and speeds you up, back climbs and slows you down, and catching thermals every now and then maintained your altitude. The marketing weasels either didn’t get it or just didn’t like it. They tried time and time again to get me to put in a mode where you just go in the direction where you point the joystick. But I was young and arrogant and refused, and they ultimately killed the game. Sorry, everyone.’ Gelberg explains the lack of music this way: ‘With Ewok Adventure, I always wish that we had enough room for music, but that was a fairly graphics intensive game, so we didn’t have enough memory (even with our whopping 8K!) for tunes.’

On level 6 (and up), fly 32 screens to the right of the bunker (or 224 to the left) and up near the top mountain range. Large LG initials (for Larry Gelberg) will appear, and you will receive 3,200 points.(source: AtariMania.com)
