1942 is a vertically scrolling shooter for one or two players. The year is 1942, and you are a daring fighter pilot "Super Ace". You begin and end each of the numerous levels on an aircraft carrier and then fly your plane into battle against the enemy over both sea and land. After destroying certain plane formations you can collect several different power ups to increase your fire power and chances of survival. You can also make your plane roll to avoid enemy attacks 3 times per life. There are 24 levels, the first being Midway and the last The Final Area.

A lot like 1943
I looks good for an older video game. I did not care for the sound effect that much.
Its pretty similar to 1943. I was not able to make it past flying the aircraft. I need a little more practice.
I did enjoy playing 1942.

When you get to the end, the voice of Lone Greene admonishes the player to never fall prey to fascism and you win a free Hitler squishy toy that pops out of the coin slot but it is make in japan which in pretty iconic really.
