Now you are Super Ace of the Second World War! Dare to complete all the 32 levels shooting all the enemy planes. Your aircraft looks like Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighting against Japanese "zeroes". You are also able to dodge by performing loops. The screen is scrolling down imitating your flight, Ayako Bomber appears in it's upper part from time to time (be sure to strike it down) and there are also a lot of power-up, such as phantom plane, two machine gun, bonus points, extra loops or kill'em-all weapon.

You'll need a lot of patience to fly from Midway to Tokyo and destroy all the Japanese fleete. Sound is pretty annoying, background changes every four levels, all your enemies look alike and, eventually, your ultimate goal is high score. However, this 1985's game from Capcom was very popular and even remains popular nowadays!

Game Reviews

Released in 1985, this vertically scrolling shooter for one or two players, a conversion of the arcade game, was published and developed by a Japanese company, Capcom Co., Ltd.

It is World War II, the story takes place in 1942 and you take on the role of "Super Ace", a brave fighter pilot. There are 32 levels to go through and the goal is to reach Tokyo and destroy the entire Japanese air fleet. And before you reach the main city, you will travel through Midway, Marshall, Attu, Rabaul, Leyte, Saipan, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Each level you start and end on an aircraft carrier. Then on your plane you fly to struggle against enemies over sea and land and shoot them all down. You get some different power ups to increase your firepower and chances of survival after destroying certain plane formations. There are such power-ups as two machine guns, two side planes, extra loops and so on.
