1943 The Battle of Midway Arcade Game
Here is a 1943 The Battle of Midway Arcade game for sale. Your mission is to take out the enemy in the skies and seas. The players control WWII planes in this 2-D vertically scrolling shooter. Missions are flown alternately in the clouds against enemy planes and over water where there player must also disable enemy ships. There are many different weapons available via power-ups. This is a sequel to Capcom’s 1942 video game.
Developed by Capcom in 1987, this is one of the first 2 player simultaneous vertical shoot’em up arcade games.
The following is from the Arcade Museum:
Pressing both buttons simultaneously causes the player’s ship to loop out of the 2-D action plane temporarily. This is very useful for getting behind enemy planes. Pressing Special calls up a special attack lightning in the air, a wave over water, but also uses up the player’s energy. The game is over when the player runs out of energy, but energy can be replenished via power-ups or for completing a level. Likewise, in two-player mode, players can share life energy by placing both planes over each other for two seconds.
