|At $2816 you can find a hidden text that is never displayed when playing the game: MIDWAY 1942|
We don't know why this text is included. Some people assume it's because "Reach For The Sky" was meant to be the missing C16 port of "1942". However, this is not confirmed and pure speculation. Moreover, some words by Richard Ikin about a proper version of "1942" would retract this hypotesis.
Nevertheless, "Reach For The Sky" is the closest thing to "1942" on our beloved platform.
