***** by Makaveli_2003. Comment: "I would become feverishly engrossed with the game whenever I played. It literally made me sweat. It must have been the tension of the challenge. Much like Eugene Jarvis said of his Robotron game, I felt like I was always a moment away from death. I can't describe exactly why I was drawn to 1942.

O-Taito is the Old Taito pinout on wiretap. N-Taito is the New-Taito pinout (Like Elevator Action). Quote by R.
