Description Edit | History

1942: The Pacific Air War could be played as a flight simulator or a wargame. A player could fight a single battle in mission mode or follow the war in Tour of Duty mode.

In Tour of Duty mode, a player managed his fleets and air bases on a strategic campaign map. When aircraft engaged in battle, the player could choose to "jump" into the cockpit of any aircraft in combat.

The game also featured a fairly advanced recording and editing tool allowing the player to film a mission after its completion. The player could use any number of cameras and place them anywhere in the scene. One could also scrub the timeline back and forth and make edits as one saw fit. This often overlooked tool, rare at the time, was a very popular feature and allowed users to share combat sequences with other players using a special format
