1942



Two American war plane heroes try to shoot the entire Japanese air fleet from the sky. Sequel to the great and famous 1942, but very badly converted, small playscreen and too easy. At least with 2 player mode.

1943 - THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY
(c) 1987 Capcom

THE STORY
---------
It was over 40 years ago, at the height of World War II, that the
Japanese main squadron tasted defeat off the west coast of the
Midway Islands. Some say that this battle greatly changed the
outcome of the war, some say under different direction we may now
all be living our lives under the shadow of the Rising Sun.

This opportunity at the controls of your magnificent P38, armed
with six secret weapons, to relive the titanic struggle for supremacy
against the battleship Yamato and it's legions of defences.

"Supreme arcade conflict at its thrilling best"


CBM CASSETTE
------------
Press SHIFT and RUN/STOP keys together. Press PLAY on the cassette
reocrder. Joystick only.


GAMEPLAY
--------
As you blast through the flak filled skies in your mission to destroy
the Japanese battleship Yamato, you will need to shoot anything that
stands in your way. By collecting POW symbols you collect a secret
weapon enabling you to increase your firepower.

The smart bomb will destroy any enemy units on screen but these are
limited.

Rolling enables you to roll the plane to prevent you from being destroyed.
