***** 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. It was not the graphics, which did the job but did not amaze. It was not the looping manoeuvre, which was a necessary escape valve, but not the main draw. It had the be something related to the assorted attack forma" 2000-10-23 01:29:12Z
