Game Overview

After Burner is an arcade fighter jet flight simulator. Destroy enemies in your fighter jet and score points. Compete with your friends as you try to score maximum points in this retro 1987 game.

Eighteen levels to win

The gameplay is fairly simple, typical of all arcade games. The player controls an F-14 Tomcat fighter jet. The game has only eighteen levels. During these levels, you have to destroy all the enemies encountered.

You can attack with two types of attack:

  • Machine gun
  • Missiles

There are a limited number of missiles, which are replenished by another plane after passing several checkpoints.

Legends Don't Die

The arcade game was so beloved by players that in 2006 a more realistic 3D flight simulator was released - After Burner: Climax. At the same time in the new game, there are a lot of references to the retro game. Still the same F-14 Tomcat, but in advanced graphics and with motion physics.

Tom Cruise and aircraft carriers.

The fighter starts his missions with the aircraft carrier Sega Enterprise. A similar name to the ship was in the famous movie of the time, "Top Gun" starring Tom Cruise. Since the developers were most likely inspired by this movie, the arcade machines tried to replicate the feeling of flying. In the game itself, for the first time, the camera was not static but rotated along with the fighter. But experienced pilots don't get carsick.


After Burner is a pixel-based simulator of aerial battles over different locations: sea, field, steppe. Evade enemy attacks, make dead loops and attack back. Defeat enemies in battles and friends in the ranking of earned points.
