Description

Now, I’ve been really looking to play this game. I mean, come on, if you don’t know this legend, how do you even dare to call yourself a gamer, huh? Unlike that happy bunch who got to play the NES port of 1943: The Battle of Midway as kids, I always dodged the real deal NES cartridge like the proverbial bullet, knowing it merely from emulators and such. 1943: The Battle of Midway is Capcom’s classic top down vertical shoot’em’up game, where you play as a pilot of an American P-47 Lightning fighter, operating within the Pacific theater of the WWII. The game consists of sixteen stages in total. Each stage ends with a boss-fight, either in the form of one of the famous ships of the Japanese Royal Navy or an enemy bomber group. The final sixteenth stage then ends with a confrontation of the Battleship Yamato herself. You control your aircraft with an 8-way joystick and a pair of buttons, one for firing the main guns and the second one for launching a special attack that eliminates all the bullets and enemies present on the screen. If you press both buttons at the same time, the plane performs a loop which gives you the ability to get behind your enemies and give them what they deserve. The use of the special attack is, however, limited by the amount of your remaining HPs, as each time you use the ‘lightning gun’ a portion of you HPs disappear from your health-bar. Which leads me to… Now, unlike in 1942, which—obvisously—is the prequel of this game, where you had several lives but your plane took only one hit to go down, in 1943: The Battle of Midway you can take several hits but you have only one life represented by a health-bar divided into three colored sections, green, yellow and red, respectively. Aside from use of the lightning gun mentioned before, colliding with other aircraft and taking hits by enemy fire will—obviously—draw you HPs as well. Once the health-bar reaches zero (you’ll here an alarm sound once it gets to red numbers), the game either ends after a timeout or continues, should you provide it with more coins to buy an additional life (the default is ‘5’ on your keyboard). But as it is usual with this kind of games, you can collect various power-ups dropped by enemy planes you shot down, and some of these will replenish your health-bar, prolonging your time on the battlefield. Other power-ups will then either upgrade your main weapon or give you a wing-man to fly with (hey, more shots fired, more enemies going down, eh?). All and all, for 1987 it is an amazing game, I gotta say, and—in fact—it is one of the founding fathers of all the manic shooters we have now. You don’t have to be good at it—take me, I suck at manic shooter—yet 1943 is something you just don’t overlook because it lies beyond your comfort zone. Today we might have compulsory reading in schools, but should there ever be something like compulsory gaming, 1943: the Battle of Midway is definitely going to be on that list and it’s going to sit pretty high on the top of it...
