    As a teen, I spent way too many quarters playing this at the arcade. A must buy for me.

    There's this game called Rok that looks amazing that I keep meaning to buy, and you pretty much HAVE to look it up by the developer's name or google the link for it, because running a search for Rok doesn't show you the game not just for the first ten apps, but even for the first FIFTY apps. I don't even know if it is there at all I've scrolled so far searching for it.

    I'll be giving this one a shot(by clicking the direct link in this thread), since both 1942 and 1943 are massive childhood nostalgia bombs. I remember playing nonstop shmups like Gradius, R-Type, and 1942, and thinking how we would inevitably get another sequel in the series "2042." Sadly that hasn't happened....yet

    I like the game. There is a sensitivity adjustment in the settings as well as an automatic fire and automatic loop settings. The gameplay is really authentic and very nostalgic.

    It's definitely worth $1

    While I love the old games I used to play not sure how a twitch shooter could possibly work on a touch device without controller.. but for £1/$1 might be worth it just to hear the music and sound effects again ;)

    Here's my hot take: relative touch can be faster and more responsive than a joystick, especially on shmups.

    Nothing beats grabbing a joystick and button smashing!!

    My experience with Cave shooters begs to disagree :).

    Agree with others - the nostalgia is strong with this one. Had to buy it.

    There's a special fondness in my heart for 1942 and Elevator Action.

    I probably won't spend ages on it - but after the very first try, I was already glad of the purchase and the memories.

    Bought, and glad I did. I was apprehensive after the Megaman debacle, but this is honestly a faithful port with some fun added optional features adding significant replayability and modest customization of controls etc... A decent redemption for some of Capcom's AppStore shenanigans IMHO #

    I tried this on iPad air 2 chose classic mode and I feel the game is too fast like 1.5 times faster than the arcade version

    Not a big deal but waiting too long to buy should bought at a dollar. I'm waiting for ghost and ghouls one my favs. I hope we also get final fight 2 or 3

    A little while back I decided to take a gamble on 1942 MOBILE and Ghouls'n Ghosts MOBILE by CAPCOM.

    Even though there is a warning...

    Both games have been running just fine on my iPad mini 5 running iPadOS 14.

    I'm just not sure about that little bar at the bottom of 1942... not sure if that is by design.
    But it has not affected game play so far... but man, again what what great nostalgia.
