Overview:

1942 puts gamers right in the cockpit of a P-38 fighter plane.... or at least as close to it as can be done on the NES in the mid eighties. This vertical (bottom to top) 2D shooter is set during World War II. Graphics are fairly typical for the time period, though they do seem quite simplistic.

The NES version of 1942 is a port of the Capcom arcade machine. Later, Capcom went on to release its sequel, 1943, on the NES.
