Return of the Jedi: Ewok Adventure

Ewok Adventure wasn't commercially released, cancelled at the last minute for being too confusing for kids. It's not that it was conceptually strange – you played an Ewok during the battle of Endor piloting a hang glider and dropping boulders on Imperials. What made it too much for Atari players in 1983 were the controls, which expected you to be able to gauge whether you were high enough to not collide with obstacles based on the size of the shadow you were casting on the ground. It was perhaps a bit of an ask for the young children who would want a game where you're an Ewok. Fortunately, this lost game has found its way onto the wilds of the internet, and can now be emulated and played at the Internet Archive.
