If you're reading this and getting on in age, you'll probably remember the classic arcade game After Buner. In this game with an 80s' aspect, we had to control an F-14 fighter from a rear view whilst we avoided all the enemies that were out to hunt us down. It was a kind of Out Run but with planes. Not surprising, considering that this flight simulator was also developed by Sega.
And we always remember that game due to its peculiar controls because the arcade machine offered as a gamepad similar to a cockpit. And even if you've never played, the game might ring a bell because it's the arcade machine that John Connor was playing at the beginning of Terminator 2. I bet you'll go running to MAME to search for it after that...
Put your reflexes to the test
Anyhow, all this nostalgia about After Burner is to introduce you to Hyperburner, a spacecraft game for iPhone clearly inspired by Sega's video game. We'll explore futuristic scenarios with a spaceship traveling at full speed, reminding us of the battle scene of the Death Star in Episode IV of Star Wars (the first one of the saga).
Here, we won't be surprised by any enemy trying to wipe us out, we'll have enough avoiding all sorts of obstacles we'll come across during our flight, and which we'll crash into if we're not careful. It comes along with features such as the following:
- 6 different gaming areas with 5 challenge stages.
- Different game modes, including an endless mode.
- Unlock different spaceship as you advance.
- Control the percentage of distance traveled.
Its retro appeal is unbeatable.
The best thing about this iOS version is that it can be downloaded for free, unlike the Android version that you have to pay for. that's why many of its users turn to Aptoide to try to find its APK instead of paying on Google Play. In any case, it's a very decent spacecraft game to be played on your iPhone or iPad. What are you waiting for?
