A simple idea, simply programmed. But the gameplay is gripping. A taught aerial dog-fight drama for all Red Barons.

Maybe Elite has produced better conversions, and this suffers from some dodgy collision detection. But even though there are quite a few good shoot 'em ups around nowadays, this rates up there in the air. It's a classic case of the just-one-more-go game.

After the brigade of great arcade conversions, I expected a little more from the father company of classics like Bombjack, but it seems that they have let their standards slip a little. Paperboy maybe wasn't quite as good as it could have been, but 1942 is definitely lacking. The graphics aren't amazingly good, but the game is averagely playable and addictive. I probably wouldn't go out and buy 1942, because all it is is a fancified shoot'em up. If you're really amazingly into 'blast the enemy until they are nothing but a clutter of misplaced pixels games', then there's a fair chance that this game will appeal to you, though it doesn't exactly grab me. But then there wasn't that much to the arcade original in the first place...

Un jeu très classique et beaucoup trop répétitif qui n'a malheureusement pas su nous séduire.
