1982 is a freeware, single player, vertical shooter in the style of the old arcade games of yesteryear.

This game can be played in windowed or full screen modes and has three levels of difficulty and three modes of play;
  • Arcade: fifty levels to play through
  • Survivor: where one hit means it's game over
  • Time Attack: just three minutes to rack up a high score
There is a web based leaderboard and the game also records the player's highest local score.

The power-ups in this game are a little bit different from the norm. Initially they are space ships that shoot at the player but when shot they turn into coloured '+' signs. If they are shot again before they hit the ground they begin shooting the incoming waves of enemies with each colour having a different attack pattern. If they hit the ground then they can boost either the players weapons, health, shield etc.
