Another arcade conversion on re-release, 1942 is a progressively scrolling vertical shoot 'em up. It's your job to pilot your plane over the Pacific ocean laying waste to all in your path. POW symbols occasionally surface after the destruction of the appropriate enemy giving you enhanced fire power when collected.

1942 spawned many arcade and home computer clones with Flying Shark being the most successful. Our advice is to stick to the original for a rollicking blast party.
