Pearl Harbor Trilogy – 1941: Red Sun Rising’s Darwin Under Attack Game-Play & Tips

September 10, 2010


Quick Brew Video Info:

     I was over on NintendoLife’s forums, when I saw a fellow gamer said, “I can’t beat the 4th mission of the American campaign.  I keep getting ambushed and eventually shot down before I can take out very many of the 3rd wave of fighters.”     
     Below is a video showing the mission, Darwin Under Attack, from the WiiWare game Pearl Harbor Trilogy – 1941: Red Sun Rising.
     The mission objective for Darwin Under Attack is “Engage enemy aircraft”, while flying in the P-40 fighter.  I was using the Wii Remote controls only(pictured below).

Caffeinated Thoughts:
     Darwin Under Attack requires you to engage/survive three “waves” of enemy fighters.  You may notice in the video I am able to get through the first two waves without any major problems; but when the third wave of enemy fighters arrive, I start taking more damage.
     When the “Damage Critical” message flashes and the warning buzzer/siren goes off, your fighter plane can’t take many more shots before being destroyed.

     The strategy I use quite often now to survive when I get the “Damage Critical” warning is to immediately bank my fighter either to the left or right, depending where the shots are coming from.  After banking left/right, I try to start speeding up and get my fighter to climb as high as it will go.
     Once my fighter plane starts leveling out, I usually will dive my plane for the ground/water, whatever is beneath me, and start cutting the speed completely out, until my plane is idling while diving.
     The enemy fighters may still be behind you; but by cutting your fighter’s speed, I find that many times the enemy fighters will come flying past you, allowing you to get behind one or two of them and turn the dogfight in your favor.  You can see this a few times in the video.
     I hope this video and “advice” on how to survive, helps Bulbasaurus Rex complete this mission!
Questions:
     Does anybody else have any missions from Pearl Harbor Trilogy they would like to see some game-play footage from?  Or, perhaps just see more game-play footage from the game overall?

Quick Brew Info
If you missed my first video “Quick Brew Preview” on Pearl Harbor Trilogy – 1941: Red Sun Rising, you may want to watch it first, HERE!  In the first video, I covered the game’s controls, number of levels, and the different modes/features in the game.
If you don’t know anything about Pearl Harbor Trilogy – 1941: Red Sun Rising, the game is a WiiWare title that was published by Legendo Entertainment and is available in North American, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand for just 700 Wii Points.

Quick Brew Video Info
Here are a few things about the video:
1) I was using the Wii Remote only controls in the game.
2) A few times in the video, you may notice my plane’s propeller slow down and start to sputter.  You can control your plane’s speed in the game, and I would purposely cut my plane’s speed if an enemy fighter was behind me; to try and get it to pass me.  The first example of this is around :58 into the video.
3) You may notice me fire missiles several times in the video, I believe the first time happens around the 2:17 mark in the video.
4) The enemy fighter I shoot down at the 2:45 mark, can still be seen burning/falling through the air and into the water at the 2:50-2:52 mark.
5) At approximately the 3:07 mark, I get the “Damage Critical” warning, which means my plane can’t take many more rounds before it explodes.

Thoughts/Question
If anybody has any questions about Pearl Harbor Trilogy – 1941: Red Sun Rising, please leave a comment on this post, or send me an email to CoffeewithGames@gmail.com.

Also, if anybody purchased the game like myself, what is the highest level in Avenging Ace or Survival that you have completed?
So far, I have accomplished 10 out 10 on Avenging Ace, and I have survived for just 2 minutes so far in Survival.
