The fast and frenetic action of one of the most popular arcade shooters of all time is back on NES. 1942 packs in all of the fun of the classic WWII shoot-em-up, with its colorful graphics and gameplay intact. You are a pilot during the war whose mission is simple: destroy all the enemy planes in over 30 stages of machine gun mayhem while trying to keep yourself alive. When the going gets tough, use your barrel-roll maneuver to get out of harm's way for a few seconds. Decimate the enemy and collect power-ups that give you an increased rate of fire, a wider shot, or even up to two fellow fighters who will protect you from danger while giving you some cover fire to boot. Play in Single-Player mode or alternate with a friend to see who can get the highest score. 1942 is an intense blast-fest that challenges your reflexes and your skills!
