Back of Cassette Inlay - Commodore 64 (UK):

    1943™

    It was over 40 years ago, at the height of World War II, that the Japanese main squadron tasted defeat off the west coast of the Midway Islands. Some say that this battle greatly changed the outcome of the war, some say under different direction we may now all be living our lives under the shadow of the Rising Sun. This is your opportunity at the controls of your magnificent P38, armed with six secret weapons, to relieve the titanic struggle for supremacy against the battleship Yamato and it's legions of defences.

    "Supreme arcade conflict at its thrilling best"
