Attack on Pearl Harbor is an action game where the player controls aircraft during WWII. Despite the name the two campaigns (USA and Japan) with overall 40 missions are not restricted to Pearl Harbor but take place during several battles between Japan and USA. However, historical accuracy plays no role.

The goals of the missions are varied in nature, e.g. liberating an area or destroying a ground base, but basically boil down to flying from point A to point B while avoid getting killed. Because of strict time limits it is not advisable to kill every foe in sight. On the other hand the player gets rated after every mission and, depending on his performance, receives new or additional aircraft which are basically used as extra lives.

The controls are action oriented, the player controls his aircraft directly and needs to use few other buttons. Ammo is unlimited but the weapons can overheat when used rapidly.
