- TRIVIA -

Released in June 2000.

Like many other large companies as-of-late, Capcom has started farming out the programing of their games to third party companies. In this case, 1944 - The Loop Master was made by 'Eighting / Raizing' and released by Capcom.

The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'CAP'.

Default High-score table 'Score ranking' :
(Rank - Name - Score - Stage - Destroy rate)
1st CAP 1000000pts. 3st1 90%
2nd COM 900000pts. 3st1 85%
3rd CAP 800000pts. 3st1 80%
4th COM 700000pts. 2st1 75%
5th CAP 600000pts. 2st1 70%
6th COM 500000pts. 2st1 65%
7th CAP 400000pts. 1st1 60%

10th COM 100000pts. 1st1 45%

- TIPS AND TRICKS -

* Hold FIRE to charge guns. When it is fully charged release FIRE. The plane will be INVINCIBLE for a short period of time and fire powerful low range projectiles. Then the guns will overheat preventing you from charging them for a short time.

* The mini fighters that appear beside your plane are destroyed after taking two hits. Destroyed side fighters are replaced if you have more in stock. During charge attacking or when there is no bomb, pushing BOMB makes side fighters charge forward for a powerful suicide attack.
