Star Wars: Yoda Stories (also known simply as Yoda Stories) is a 2D sci-fi top-down action-adventure game developed and published by LucasArts for the PC (running Windows) and Mac on March 1997.
A follow-up to Indiana Jones and His Desktop Adventures (and the last game in the studio's budget "LucasArts Desktop Adventures" line), Yoda Stories brings the puzzle-solving procedurally-generated adventure to the Star Wars universe. Players control Luke Skywalker as he travels throughout the galaxy aiding the Rebel Alliance as part of his training with Jedi Master Yoda. The game's CD also includes the contents of Star Wars: Making Magic, featuring behind-the-scenes look at the special edition of the Star Wars Trilogy.
The game was later ported to the Game Boy Color by Torus and published by THQ on December 1999. It has full backward compatibility support with the original Game Boy.
Yoda Stories centers around Luke Skywalker's time on Dagobah in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The gameplay consists mainly of puzzles and quests such as errands and item retrieval, although there is a combat element as well. There is some persistence between playthroughs; as such, the player is given motivation to complete the game multiple times.
The player controls Luke, who must solve puzzles to progress within a world. Luke begins his journey with only a lightsaber, but can come across blasters and medical kits. Luke must learn how to use The Force within each world all over again by meeting Uncle Ben.
It should be noted that the size of the world maps could be chosen at the player's convenience at the beginning of a game, and they were generated randomly in different environments. Nevertheless, the beginning and ending sequences were always the same. The game begins with Luke arriving at Dagobah in his X-Wing and meeting Yoda (also coming across R2D2 if the player hasn't completed a certain number of games). The ending was a confrontation with Darth Vader. After 15 playthroughs, the player obtained a green lightsaber for all successive games.
