  • Played it at Chassis Arcade in Copenhagen, and apparently, the owner, Laust, is a beast at this game with a world class hiscore of 1,785,830. I can't remember if I ever tried this machine as a kid, but it sure is a lot of fun to play.

  • Played the first 5-6 levels at Chassis Arcade, pumping 2-kroner coins into the machine at a regular interval, hoping to maybe finish the game. As it turns out, 1943 has 16 levels, which would take *a lot* of coins to complete.

  • Completed the game (Capcom Arcade Stadium). I played through 16 levels of WWII planes and ships, using a bunch of continues. This game has great graphics, typical of Capcom's games from this era. The gameplay feels good, but the power-ups and special attacks are a bit confusing, and end up feeling a bit unsatisfying. Not my favourite Capcom arcade shooter.
