    TRIVIA
    1941 was released in February 1990 in the Japanese arcades as the 7th CP-S release. It is the first Shoot'em Up to add +1 to the score when a continue is used.

    Player 1 uses a P-38 Lightning and Player 2 uses a Mosquito B Mk.IV.

    Known Export release: "1941 - Counter Attack [B-Board 89624B-3]".

    Here is all the official bosses names:
    • Stage 1 - Leviathan
    • Stage 2 - Bismarck
    • Stage 3 - V3Rocket
    • Stage 4 - Krote
    • Stage 5 - Leviathan
    • Stage 6 - Gotha

    Historical inaccuracies - V3Rocket: The real V3 was a Super Gun, not a rocket. Furthermore, 'V-weapons' would not appear until "1944 - The Loop Master".

    Default high-score table:
    1ST 30000 CAP
    2ND 29000 COM
    3RD 28000 CAP
    4TH 27000 COM

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • How to Play:
    Control airplane with 8-way joystick.
    Attack with button A.
    Somersault & Mega-Crash with Button B.
    Power Blast: If the A button is held down, energy will be stored up, so that a power blast is fired when the button is released.

    • Hint: Your airplane doesn't lose energy when it collides with cliff-walls, buildings etc. Instead it will rotate a bit after such collisions. That means you can tumble up and down these obstacles (keep on colliding), and if you keep shooting, your shots will go in all directions. This way you can clear up a lot of enemies when you are under pressure (while rolling you are invincible).
