SummaryClassic arcade shoot em up
The GoodIt's a classic game, the best of a series (1942, 1941, 1943...). The conversion to the Gameboy color is excellent!
The BadYou cannot run it in Gameboy, only in the Gameboy color!
The Bottom LineFirst of all, I'm a rom translator and I have translated 1942 in greek. I really know almost everything in the game. You can find the greek patch at www.greekroms.net
As for the game itself, there's not much I can say. A classic shoot em up. You control a plane, you go upwards and you can get some bonuses. (3 bullets at a time instead of 2, smart bomb, 2 attached planes) You begin from stage 32 and you end at 1. Luckily, the game has a password system :-)
