Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is a platform video game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Activision for the Game Boy Color, Dreamcast, PlayStation, and by Disney Interactive for Microsoft Windows.

Description[edit | edit source]

A Mission of Galactic Proportions! Buzz Lightyear is the ultimate space ranger! He must fight to save the galaxy from the Evil Emperor Zurg. Guide him through 14 action-packed missions through 7 breathtaking 3-D worlds. Help Buzz capture Zurg's troops and take on Zurg himself in the ultimate space showdown!

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game features 14 different missions, each one taking place on a particular planet. The objective is, as Buzz Lightyear, to race against the villains to their getaway destination. Afterwards, they will fight the villain in a one-on-one battle, often requiring the player to destroy their energy shield, which indicates which weapon to use on them. The villain is easier to fight if the player finishes the race quicker. If they reach the end before the villain does, Mira will appear to help.

Reception[edit | edit source]

The game generally received mixed reviews. It was mostly criticized for its lack of originality. It holds a 65% rating on GameRankings while on Metacritic, it has 54 out of 100 for the PlayStation, 55 for the Dreamcast version and 52 for the Game Boy Color version.
