* Full Ammunition Load : A little known trick in the game is to hold down the fire button at the very end of a board immediately after beating the boss. By holding down the button until the plane takes off in the subsequent board, the game gives you a full ammunition load (65 Seconds)! This trick only works every third board or so and it may even change your selected weapon.

* The '100% accuracy' bonus refers NOT to how many planes you down during the round, but rather how many of the guns on the enemy aircraft carriers you get. For this reason, it's best to ignore the planes and concentrate on the ships - that's where the big points are.

* It's possible to shoot one of the ships just before your plane dives in to battle the fleet, and that you can capture the flames that erupt from it. This gives a 10, 000 point bonus.

* At some points in the background there are 'shootable' patches which will yield a bonus when shot enough. They can be recognized by the sparks which will occur when your bullets hit them. One such bonus is on level one : it is on the lowest part of the second cloud bank to the left after the last large plane of the level appears. It appears as a cow. There is also another shootable area which appears after the first ship in the first level, in the water above it.
1) The cow bonus is worth 20, 000 points, and on the first level, it's followed by a strange object that looks like a dragonfly moving right to left across the screen. Shooting the dragonfly yields an additional 10, 000 point bonus.
2) The cow and dragonfly bonuses also appear on other rounds; the cow can sometimes be seen on the deck of a carrier!
3) There's a bonus shaped like a spinning cat (!). When collected, it upgrades your weapon to a laser.

* The 'star' bonus gives you 5, 000 points when caught. It may also increase the capacity of your fuel gauge by eight units (mine went from 64 to 72 units). The white star also gives you the max seconds of weapon (if you get it with no weapon, the next time you get one you'll get 64 seconds instead of 20).

* (This has been reported on level 2, but may exist on other levels as well) : Sometimes an astronaut will emerge from the side of the final (boss) ship and walk off the screen. Shoot it for 100, 000 points! This happens most often when the command tower is shot repeatedly before the ship is destroyed.

* If you get the 'propeller' power-up (it looks like a propeller over a circle), your energy level will be fully replenished.

* Still another bonus is shaped like an pine cone or acorn. When you fly over a certain spot, the pine cone shows up and is worth 2, 000 points.

* When the boss ship explodes, the control center breaks into 4 pieces. The pieces are worth 10, 000 points each if shot.

* If you shoot a POW enough to cycle it through about 4 or 5 times, it will turn into a fuel-tank :) that helps a GREAT deal on the last few stages, especially a stage or 2 where they DON'T give you a full tank at the end of the cloud stage before you go to the water!

Inauguramos ranking de este super clásico donde los haya, con la tabla de la pasada competición de Retrovicio 2010.

Así que ya sabéis, menos danmaku y a darle a los "avioncitos" ;)

Re: 1943 Battle of Midway (Arcade, Playstation, Saturn)

Phan, creo que sería bueno añadir otra tabla independiente para la versión japonesa (1943: Midway Kaisen). Esta versión es más fácil y se hacen bastantes más puntos. Creo que tiene puntuaciones diferentes.

¡Saludos!

Re: 1943 Battle of Midway (Arcade, Playstation, Saturn)

Yo siempre he considerado 1943: Midway Kaisen como otro juego independiente dentro de la saga. Dicha versión apareció un año después de la que nos ocupa y solamente en Japón.

Los gráficos y los sonidos son diferentes, se han sustituido aviones, armas y el nuestro hasta dispara rayos laser! o.0

En fin, que lo considero un juego totalmente diferente y por lo tanto creo que debería tener su propio ranking en un hilo aparte.
