Hint: Early on, the most important skill to learn is the double jump. Jump, and
then hit the jump key again while in midair to somersault for greater
distance. There are times when a running double jump is the only way to get
from one platform to the next.
Hint: You'll find many situations in which you need to swing your way through a
whole herd of battle droids. The lightsaber is the best weapon here,
especially when used in tandem with your Force push power. Avoid being caught
in a crossfire, and keep swinging your saber at incoming shots--you'll block
most and send a few ricocheting back to the droids. Use the Force push to
throw back some droids if you find yourself becoming overwhelmed by the skinny
Hint: The destroyer droids (those strange rolling nasties) can be very
dangerous. If at all possible, run away and avoid them (this works in some
places, but not in others). You can generally hear them coming, so get ready
and see if you can get in a shot (with a ranged weapon) before they flare up
their shields. Once their shields are up, use your roll move to avoid their
fire (or at least as much of it as you can), and try to blast them with the
most powerful weapon you have.
Hint: When talking to a character, if one of your response choices is shown in
pink text, that means that the response uses your Force persuasion skill.
Select that response and you should be able to "guide" your contact into a
Hint: When playing as Obi-Wan or Qui-Gon, practice your advanced lightsaber
skills. A quick tap of the attack key will give you an overhead slash. Moving
forward and then holding down the attack key will give you a twirling attack.
Pressing and holding the attack key while jumping will give you the jump-spin
Hint: The final level is exhausting, as you switch back and forth between
controlling the queen and Obi-Wan on your way to the final confrontation with
Darth Maul. Once it's just you and him, there are a number of ways that you
can battle it out. Of course, the most challenging is to go mano-a-mano with
your lightsaber, but you can also try to push him into the pit with your Force
push power. If you have a missile launcher, a few proton projectiles just
might do the trick. To help you out, there are several full health packs
hidden in the area, located behind the compartments with the thin blue
outline--"use" the compartment to open it.
