Aspyr Media Inc. on Tuesday announced that its Macintosh conversion of
Lego Star Wars: The Video Game
has gone “gold master,” the final step before the game goes into production. Aspyr expects the game to start shipping on Monday, August 22nd, 2005. Lego Star Wars: The Video Game is rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB and costs US$29.99.
Lego Star Wars combine the mythology, characters and scenery of the legendary Star Wars movies with the popular building block toy. You can play through the entire store of Star Wars Episodes I, II and III using Lego toys.
Players can experience the game as more than 30 of their favorite Star Wars characters, playing through more than 18 levels as they solve puzzles, participate in action sequences and more: Everything from Podracing on Tatooine to fighting droids on Geonosis, reliving Qui-Gon Jinn’s defeat at the hands of Darth Maul and more.
What’s more, players who like multiplayer action can engage a two-player “cooperative” play modem that lets a second player “drop in and out” of what’s happening on screen without disrupting gameplay.
Lego Star Wars: The Video Game was originally developed by Giant Interactive Entertainment and licensed from LucasArts. Its Macintosh conversion was managed by i5works.
