You are the Daring Super Ace and are engaged in realistic, thrilling, and challenging high flying battles with the enemy. You must control Super Ace over land, sea, and in the air through 32 different scenes. To win you must reach Tokyo and destroy the remaining enemy aircraft.

If you can destroy a complete attacking RED FORMATION you will gain additional power. A POW will appear on the screen after their defeat and you must fly over the POW to gain additional power. When enemy shots hit Super Ace; you lose one plane. If Super Ace hits one of the secret enemy bombers a pinwheel will appear on the screen and you will get an additional 5,000 points when you fly over it. Don't forget when there are too many enemy aircraft you can "Loop the Loop."

This update of "1943 - The Battle of Midway" was only released to arcades in Japan; it was only released in the US to home systems. "1943 Kai - Midway Kaisen" has different graphics and gameplay and is slightly harder than the original.

In 1943, our main fleet began an intense battle off the coast of Midway Islands.

Help our fleet defeat the enemy.

The NES version varies from the arcade version somewhat, introducing the gradual improvement of the player's plane by several "augmenting" power-ups that never go away. These include the plane's offensive and defensive powers, the energy level, its special weapons and their durations. This somewhat alters the game balance and a different tactic is required to survive the game. For example, initially very few weapons are made available; more can be attained from power-ups by putting statistic points into "special weapons ability". Likewise, there are statistics for offensive ability, defensive ability, total energy, and special weapon time limit. The statistics modify the rates of change for the energy reserve, damage inflicted, and special weapon time limit.

It was 40 years ago, at the height of World War II. The Japanese main squadron tasted defeat off the coast of Midway Islands. Some say that this battle greatly changed the outcome of the war. Can you destroy the battleship, 'Yamato' ? Relive the excitement of "1942" by controlling your P-38 equipped with six secret weapons in this vertically scrolling shoot'em up. In addition to the now famous loop, you have at your command, lightning, cyclone, and tsunami to ward off your enemies.

Story:
19XX: The War Against Destiny is the 4th of a series of World War II vertical shooters made by Capcom. The story takes place before a fictional war (Hence, the 19XX) as a lone pilot tries to defeat an entire army/evil organization from starting another World War, which soon escalates to a nuclear apocalypse.

Gameplay:
The player selects one of three different planes, each with different ratings in speed, power, and the strength of their homing attack. When flying through the levels, three primary weapons can be used by picking up their respective items, to fire either spreading Vulcan bullets, straight-firing lasers, or multi-directional missiles. By holding the Fire button, the player can charge up to fire a special missile. If this missile hits a large enemy, the player will lock on to that enemy, and can fire fast homing projectiles to damage it further. There is also a supply of smart bombs which can be used to clear away the majority of enemies and their projectiles from the screen. However, smart bombs can also be charged up, and each level of charge yields a different effect. Of course, if the player is shot down while charging up a bomb, it will have no effect.

Solar system #517 is being terrorized by a gang of Alien Serpentbeasts. None of the eight worlds are safe. And no-one seems to be able to stop this massive invasion.

In short, #517 is in deep trouble.

They need someone who can run. Fast. Someone who can jump. From world to world. And someone who's more than handy with a laser missile. They need you!

The game is a horizontal scrolling shooter in which you take control of a jetpack propelled space warrior who travels between parallel universes and worm holes (hence 4-D or 4 dimensions) throughout the game. By flying over the top of the play field, you end up in an alternate universe. You travel back and forth defeating enemies until you reach a boss creature. On some occasions a worm hole will appear in the middle of the play field and you are taken to even stranger worlds...

Messerschmidts darken the skies in front of you. JU-88 bombers move steadily towards their targets. At last, you've reached your objective - a fleet of U-boats with bad intentions. You dive in to make a bombing run, but you overshoot! Turn around to try again, and the enemy fighters are all over you! Fire, dodge, climb, and fire again! Your left engine is in flames, your fuel supply dwindling... can you weather the storm?

Simple flight sim. In-game graphics are pretty dreadful.

Ace of Aces puts you in the cockpit of the Mosquito, the maverick RAF fighter bomber of World War II. It's white-knuckle aerial combat simulation, combining the exhilaration of flight with the gut-wrenching pressure of enemy confrontation.
During World War II, Mosquitos downed 659 enemy aircraft and 500 V-1 Buzz Bombs. Your only allies are your wits, your weapons, and your radar. Are you equal to the challenge?
Down the Nazi bombers, sink the U-boats, outrun the V-1 Buzz Bombs and stop the enemy trains to release the POWs. Should you fly through a storm or around? Navigate carefully, consult your intelligence reports and maps to make a decision. Choose your weapons and fuel wisely--once you're on a mission there's no going back.
Select one mission or any combination. If you complete all four successfully--and make it back alive--you'll become the most distinguished flight veteran of World War II--the Ace of Aces!

Story:
In the year 2100, the Earth's environment is devastated by its inhabitants, who develop their space technology to live on Mars. Before they left, the humans created a Bio-Computer assigned to replenish Earth's ecosystem in hopes of returning to Earth. 50 years after terra-forming parts of Mars, the human colonists were attacked by mysterious, but hostile UFOs. The military leaders among the colonists set up an attack force to defend the colonists using state of the art fighter ships useridentified as the Icarus. The main operation of attack is called "Acrobat Mission" because it exceeds the technical flying ability of the pilots.

Gameplay:
Players started the game equipped with the default weapon, the Standard Shot: a semi-automatic laser weapon. Though moderately powerful, the Standard Shot cannot be upgraded or charged. Once the player has lost a significant number of lives and their selected weapon his lost its upgrades, the Standard Shot will once again take over.

Acrobatic Dog-Fight or "Dog-Fight - Batten O'Hara no Sucharaka Kuuchuu-sen" in Japan is a side-scrolling shooter arcade game released by Technos in 1984, featuring "cute" cartoon graphics and gameplay similar to the 8-way scrolling of Time Pilot but differs from the Time Pilot in many respects. In Acrobatic Dog-Fight the playing field was limited with a ceiling and ground as well as an ultimate destination to navigate to. Acrobatic Dog-Fight also added two buttons, a secondary weapon and an eject button. Eject could be used at any time and made it possible to hijack enemy planes and continue flying them. If the pilot failed to hijack an enemy plane he would parachute to the ground where a standard plane waited nearby.
