Overview:

1943: The Battle of Midway is almost exactly like its predecessor, 1942, in terms of basic gameplay. However, 1943 adds new features such as special weapons, an energy meter, and resource allocation. The graphics and sound are also a step up; the graphics are more detailed and the music changes for each level.

The NES version of 1943 was a port of the earlier Capcom arcade game released in 1987. Just as 1942 was popular across many platforms, this game had similar success on a variety of systems.
