    MGLXLII - Game 1 ~ 1942 (closes 15-Dec)

    Lightning strikes

    MGLXLII Game 1 ~ 1942

    Nominated by gamers: @Charlie Milne, @orse, @RichyS and @John73

    Game Story:
    Control a WWII-style plane over 32 vertically scrolling sea and landscapes. Shoot various types of enemy planes. Collect a variety of weapon power-ups. Shoot the red formation of enemy planes to receive a "POW" and collect this for different power-ups double shot, wider shot, two side-planes, or a "smart bomb". Using the roll button causes your plane to loop out of the 2-D action thereby avoiding all enemy shots. You have three rolls per level, but you are awarded a bonus for any that are unused. Hit percentage reports are given at the end of each level.

    Games can be played at the arcade. You must ensure the arcade operator has the game at the MGL game settings for the submission to be valid.

    Just an initial, casual score while slightly intoxicated.
    I predict some crazy high score from you guys in the next 2 weeks.
    OH MAN!!!!

    It's a start I guess.

    Once upon a time I was good at this game. Now? Not so great. It's been at least 10 years since I've 1CCd 1942 so that's something to aim for.

    2 games I like to start an MGL. Hopefully it's not all downhill from here.

    Enough rambling it's bedtime

    Pb for me on second attempt. I put it down to playing on my LAI fatboy (surely there isn't a better cabinet in existence for vertical shooters) for the first time...

    The ONLY time this game was played in the MGL, was March 2010. That's once in 16 years! (not counting the Shmup Off)

    9.5 years later and KABANG, it's 1942, again!

    Make it count, or it could be another 9.5 years to play this game.

    Not sure if when I'll get my control panel back to play on PC, or have time to visit Pincadia where I work where my 1942 machine is sited - does anyone know if 1942 emulates (difficulty wise) on the 60-1? Might have a shot on that this weekend if I can find time.

    My guess is it plays the same, but I don't have a 60 in 1 to test with.
