Hit the Afterburners with New iPad Fighter Combat Game form SEGA

After Burner Climax

Game Developer SEGA has been very successful with its launch of ported games to the iPhone and iPad. With games like Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Crazy Taxi, and Super Monkey Ball 2, the company is fast becoming the go-to game center for iOS. Today, the company launched a version of its jet simulation game After Burner Climax.

After Burner Climax is the sequel to the original After Burner and was first launched as an arcade game in 2006. The cabinet game was fixed with a simulation chair to make gamer feel like they were really in the cockpit. The iPad game may not come with a servo-equipped motion seat, but you can turn your office into a cockpit with a little imagination and After Burner Climax on your iPad.

Using tilt controls and virtual touch controls, players dodge missiles, while targeting multiple on-screen enemy aircraft. Just like the original game, you’ll be able to choose from the F-14D Super Tomcat, the F-15E Strike Eagle, or F/A-18E Super Hornet. You’ll even be able to customize your plane with four different paint jobs.

There are 20 different stages with secret levels that can only be unlocked when players meet hidden criteria. You can play in Arcade mode to unlock weapons and power ups, Score Attack mode, where you compete against others for global leader board ranking, and Climax mode, which adds the element of slowed-down time so you can take down enemies en masse.

After Burner Climax is available today in the App Store for $2.99.
