Tom Clancy's 1942

I can't think of a more charming way to hawk HAWX 2, much as I'd be enormously surprised if the upcoming combat flight simette sequel had anything like the sense of humour of this 8-bit official demake. Or maybe 16-bit. I don't know. The number doesn't matter: it's HAWX re-imagined as a vibrantly silly vertical shmup, replete with power-ups, midi music and implausibly huge boss-planes. As far away from the grey sterneness of the original HAWX as an aeroplane-based game ever could be.
