1943 is the sequel to Capcom's highly successful vertical scrolling shooter 1942. The game takes place in the Pacific Theater of WWII during the Battle of Midway (as per the title) where the United States won a decisive victory over the Japanese navy. The game takes a few liberties with history and pits the player as a lone fighter pilot winning the battle on their own, and shooting down a lot more than four Japanese aircraft carriers.

The game consists of 16 levels through which the player must destroy waves of enemies to take on a large battleship, bomber boss, or fighter launching aircraft at the level's conclusion. The player, as in the previous game, pilots a Lockheed P-38 Lightning. The only major gameplay difference from 1942 is that the player is only given one life and rechargeable energy meter.

Shooting down groups of red enemy craft or touching animal icons hidden in the clouds will grant power-ups to the plane's abilities. Such power-ups include automatic guns, artillery shells, a shotgun blast, and even an anachronistically placed laser. The famous Capcom Yashichi symbol will restore health and the plane icon will grant two wingmen who attach to the wingtips and double the plane's firepower.

Players can also make use of a "bomb" ability that clears the screen of foes and bullets. This is context-sensitive to the part of a level the player is in, as it calls lightning while in the skies and a tidal wave if the plane is closer to the ocean. The bomb ability is to be used sparingly as it drains health with each use.

The 3-D Battles of WorldRunner (shortened to 3-D WorldRunner on the North American box art), originally released in Japan as Tobidase Daisakusen, is a 1987 third-person rail shooter platform video game developed and published by Square for the Family Computer Disk System and published by Acclaim for the Nintendo Entertainment System itself.

In the game, the player assumes the role of Jack the WorldRunner, a wild "space cowboy" on a mission to save various planets overrun by serpent-like beasts. The game takes place in Solar System #517, which is being overrun by a race of aliens known as Serpentbeasts, who are led by the evil Grax. As WorldRunner, the player must battle through eight planets to destroy Grax. For its time, the game was technically advanced; the game's three-dimensional scrolling effect is very similar to the linescroll effects used by Pole Position and many racing games of the day as well as the forward-scrolling effect of Sega's 1985 third-person rail shooter Space Harrier. 3-D WorldRunner was an early forward-scrolling pseudo-3D third-person platform-action game where players were free to move in any forward-scrolling direction and had to leap over obstacles and chasms. It was also notable for being one of the first stereoscopic 3-D games.

WorldRunner was designed by Hironobu Sakaguchi and Nasir Gebelli, and composed by Nobuo Uematsu, all whom would later rise to fame as core members of the team behind the popular role-playing video game Final Fantasy.

Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa (ファンタジーゾーンII オパオパの涙? Fantajī Zōn tsū: Opa-Opa no Namida) is a Sega Master System game created by Sega in 1987.

Like the first Fantasy Zone, the player controls a sentient spaceship named Opa-opa who fights surreal invader enemies. Like its predecessor, Fantasy Zone II departs from the traditional scrolling shooter themes with its bright colors and whimsical designs. For this reason, it is occasionally dubbed a "cute 'em up".

An incantation or enchantment is a charm or spell created using words. An incantation may take place during a ritual, either a hymn or prayer, and may invoke or praise a deity. In magic, occultism, shamanism, and witchcraft it is used with the intention of casting a spell on an object or a person. The term derives from Latin "incantare" (tr.), meaning "to chant (a magical spell) upon," from in- "into, upon" and cantare "to sing".
In medieval literature, folklore, fairy tales and modern fantasy fiction, enchantments (from the Old French "enchantement") are charms or spells. The term was loaned into English since around AD 1300. The corresponding native English term being "galdr" "song, spell". It has led to the terms "enchanter" and "enchantress", for those who use enchantments.
The weakened sense "delight" (compare the same development of "charm") is modern, first attested in 1593 (OED).
