Take to the skies and experience blazing speeds in the world’s fastest fighter jets as SEGA have today announced the return of After Burner Climax, a much loved classic that has returned for a new generation of gamers. The game puts you in the cockpit of some of the world’s fastest fighter planes, dodging rockets and bullets whilst trying to target multiple on-screen enemy aircraft.
From the moment you start a game you can choose your favourite Aircraft from the F-14D Super Tomcat by Northrop Grumman, the F-15E Strike Eagle and F/A-18E Super Hornet by Boeing. Personalisation options will allow you to pimp your plane with a selection of 4 different paint jobs that include: standard paint, camouflage, special paint and Low Visibility.
There are over 20 Stages with a branching storyline for you and your personalised plane to get through. Keep your head under pressure with limited time to make adrenaline-fuelled decisions, and experience different paths through the game based on personal choice with the success or failure of special missions. You can blast away close range enemies with a gun that has access to unlimited ammo and shoot missiles that lock on to enemy aircraft in an exciting fast-paced blow out!
Featured Game Modes:
- Training Mode - To help build up your skill before playing the Arcade game.
- Score Attack - To see how you rank on the Online Leaderboards.
- Ex Option Mode – Overwhelmingly superior conditions to take down multiple enemies.
- Climax Mode – When your Climax Gauge is full, time will slow down and your lock-on cursor will expand. This is your chance to lock on to enemies en masse and take them all down at once!
The game will be available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace April 21st, and on the Playstation Network Store April 22nd. The Xbox LIVE version will include unlockable Avatar Awards for expert players.
