    Final Results ...

    1942 was a big hit from Capcom. And a big hit with the bugs as well. Gamers found the bug on bonus lives, but did you know the end of stage bonus for 100% shooting down is actually 50,000 points, even though the game displays a 'special' bonus of only 10,000 points. There’s more bugs, and they made it even more challenging!

    A great turn out of 44 gamers played this classic. Pilots JasonV91, DaLar, John73, Derek, CrazyKongFan, RMacauley and RichyS flew their missions extremely well from 675K down to 443K points to take out 6th place to 12th place respectively.

    It’s always very special to hit a million on a game, where Arcadinator, Barra, Pessimeister and orse hit the magical 7 digits and more to take out 2nd place to 5th place respectively. Excellent gaming on this title!

    Congratulations to Derek Long for winning Game 1, with an outstanding score of 11,655,000 points. The only gamer to finish the game, he collected the massive completed bonus and his mission to Tokyo was a success. The enemy said, and I quote, “WE GIVE UP”. Nice flying Derek.
