1942 - Arcade quality port is still coming to the Amiga with Alpha footage shown

In 1984 a great shoot 'em up was released for the Arcade by Capcom and that game was 1942. A game in which you had to shoot down enemy planes, avoid being shot out of the sky while performing awesome rolls and collecting power ups. Thankfully this game which was one of the highlights of that era, is still coming to the Amiga. As thanks to a heads up from a good friend of ours, we are 100% sure that Agermose is working on a full Arcade conversion using a number of tools such as Assembly, MAME and UAE. (We did the first feature in 2019 but we needed to be sure it was still being developed)

According to the creator, he recently got back into Amiga assembly programming and after playing around a bit decided to do a bigger development project with the use of MAME and UAE being available converting an old arcade game seems a good choice. He finally goes on to say after retrieving some of his old stuff, he found some old 1942 code that he started working on around 1993, but it wasn't until 2019 that the project went full steam ahead to be finished hopefully this year.
