First Impressions: 1942

Posted by Tracy Poff on September 24, 2006

The famous vertical scrolling shooter:

1942 (U) [!]_01

It’s not too bad. You control the plane, which moves pretty smoothly, and shoot the enemies. A rather basic idea, but workable:

1942 (U) [!]_04

Unfortunately, this one just doesn’t measure up to its sequel, 1943. I can’t show it in a screenshot, but the sound was annoying–there was a beeping sort of sound going on while playing. The graphics, too, aren’t as good as in 1943.

Verdict: Play 1943 instead.
