In 1984 a great shoot em up was released for the Arcade by Capcom and that game was 1942. A game in which you shoot down enemy planes, avoided being shot out of the sky and performed awesome rolls while collecting power ups. One of the more unusual power ups was being escorted by two other planes in formation that gave you the edge. It was an awesome game and still is today, but thanks The New Dimension we have a brand new SEUCK game on the C64 that is inspired by 1942 and is called ' Super ACE 1942 '.
If you've ever played that classic game then you know what to expect with this one, fly your plane above the landscape and shoot down all the other enemy planes that come your way. Be warned however Super ACE 1942 is a very difficult game to play! The enemies will come at you in all directions and sometimes on mass, and what makes it even harder are the tiny bullets which blend in a little to much with the background and can be hard to see ( at least in Vice ).
But apart from the missing awesome rolls found in 1942, this game does have animated backgrounds and seriously cool music by Richard Bayliss found in the intro, game screen and in game.
