This morning, Eli and I gave After Burner Climax [$2.99] a shot. It's an aerial combat game that tasks you with blasting your way through a handful of heavily scripted scenarios teeming with fast-flying jets and various ground-to-air weaponry. Our participation, oddly, felt a little limited: you can only strafe and fire; there is no freedom to the movement, and there's not really any strategy to the fighting. You're more observer than hero.
This feeling might have more to do with the fact that Climax was originally designed as an arcade game with a pretty hardcore cabinet, complete with servos and a joystick. Looking at the game in this context, we can see the action feeling a lot more fulfilling.
Anyway, we've got a pretty hefty video of the game in action below, in case you're still a little curious. Who knows, maybe it'll click with you.
