A lacklustre followup to the legendary 1942. While this revision adds a simultaneous two-player option and a selection of power ups which can be cycled to your prefered choice by shooting them, it really adds very little else.

More disappointing is the fact that technically it come far behind it's predecessor in all areas. The play area is laughably small, the music doesn't seems to fit and the sound effects are little more than squeaks and noise. Gameplay is also poor, with levels that are too short and far too easy to complete. Nothing new here. Move along.
