It looks fantastic: great animation, fluid scrolling... it's not brown, like so many C64 games... but the gameplay is very simplistic, not to say potentially tedious. In the comments, one of the team makes the point that the head is the AT-AT's vulnerable point, so it would require fewer hits to bring it down but still... The game wasn't particularly good on the 2600, and it might need more than a graphical overhaul to work well on the C64

Not sure if the Zzap64 branding is just for the demo or if it's set for release alongside the next annual.
