From the Publisher
The most crucial and decisive battle of World War II is about to be fought...by you! Enemy forces are descending upon Midway Island. Enemy bombers, dive bombers, and zeros are roaring over the island like a typhoon. The surrounding Pacific waters are teeming with enemy aircraft carriers.

As the top gun of the Navy's most elite crew of fighter pilots, you must pilot your specifically-outfitted P-38 into the very midst of the enemy squadron. Equipped with an array of secret weapons, only you can turn the tide against the formidable enemy fleet.

The outcome of history's most fateful air/sea battle rests in your hands! Can you avenge Pearl Harbor?

=>Powered-Up: Hold B until you hear a whistle, then release.
=>Create-A-Password: To create your very own, unique password, follow these
instructions.
Each password consists of 5 'digits'. Consult the following
charts and instructions to create the password.
1) Choose your stage and place its code letter in digit 1. (Note: The chosen
stage determines the power levels of the ship. Chart 5 lists the number
of points available at each level. These points can be spread between
your offense, defense, plane energy, weapon energy, and weapon time;
digits 2, 3, and 4 use up these points.)
2) Choose your offense and defense level and enter that letter into digit 2.
3) Choose the energy level of your plane and special weapon and enter the
letter into digit 3.
4) Choose the time limit for your weapon and enter the letter into digit 4.
5) Add the values chosen for offensive, defensive, energy, weapon energy,
and weapon time limit (select the numerical values from the charts, NOT
the code values from the charts.) to get your point total. Take this
number and consult chart 5. If your point total is allowed for your
chosen stage, enter the code letter into digit 5. If you have more points
than allowed, either readjust your point totals by changing digits 2, 3,
and 4, or choose a higher stage to begin at.
Example: For Stage 23, Offense level 6, Defense level 6, Weapon energy level
5, Ship energy level 6, Time Limit level 6, you would enter |TY19U|.
