The A - Z of Spectrum Games

1943: The Battle of Midway


Year of Release


The Advertising Blurb

It was over 40 years ago, at the height of World War II, that the Japanese main squadron tasted defeat off the west coast of the Midway Islands. Some say that this battle greatly changed the outcome of the war, some say under different direction we may now all be living our lives under the shadow of the Rising Sun. This is your opportunity at the controls of your magnificent P38, armed with six secret weapons, to relive the titanic struggle for supremacy against the battleship Yamato and its legion of defences.

A competent conversion but the Spectrum was never really that good for producing vertical scrolling shoot-'em-ups
