Game History - Battle For Midway
The Battle of Midway, fought in June 1942, must be considered one of the most
decisive battles of World War Two. The Battle of Midway effectively destroyed
Japan's naval strength when the Americans destroyed four of its aircraft carriers.
Japan's navy never recovered from its mauling at Midway and it was on the
defensive after this battle.
Battle for Midway game is based on the arcade game 1943. 1943: The Battle of Midway
is a shoot'em up arcade game developed and published by Capcom. It was the first
followup to Capcom's earlier 1942.
The game is set in the Pacific theater of World War II, off the coast of the
Midway Atoll. The goal is to attack the Japanese air fleet that bombed the
American aircraft carrier, pursue all Japanese air and sea forces, fly through
the 16 stages of play, and make their way to the Japanese battleship Yamato and
destroy her. 11 of these stages consist of an air-to-sea battle (with a huge
battleship or an aircraft carrier as the stage boss), while 5 stages consist of
an all-aerial battle against a squadron of Japanese bombers with a mother bomber
at the end.
Battle for Midway is very close to 1943 but without the ground/sea elements.
Depending on the interest of this game we may add thoughs elements to the game.
