After Burner Climax—an update to the classic arcade flight sim released around the time of this Klymaxx—is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Developed by Fishing Cactus, After Burner Climax is a “… fast and frantic arcade-style action game that puts fans in the cockpit of the world’s fastest fighter jets.”
As one would expect with a touchscreen device flight/combat sim, players will utilize both tilt and touch controls to dodge missiles and bullets while targeting multiple on-screen enemy aircraft. Multiple skill levels ensure quick playability and an ongoing challenge as gamers soar through a branching storyline of more than 20 stages.
Unlike in the original game, multiple planes can be flown and customized:
- F-14D Super Tomcat
- F-15E Strike Eagle
- F/A-18E Super Hornet
Is it just me, or do all video game developers seem to think military aircraft stopped being interesting in the 1970s? Maybe they’re right…I personally think everything went south when the DoD decided not to buy the F-20 Tigershark.
Anyway, After Burner Climax is a universal app, and is available now for $2.99.
