Take to the skies on the go — the one-of-a-kind arcade action of After Burner Climax is now live on the App Store for iPhone and iPad!
Here’s where you can go get the game right now:
This is the same AM2-developed arcade game already brought to digital console download, and now – as if you needed proof we were living in the future – on your mobile device. And oh yes: the game is just around the corner for Android. More details available soon!
After Burner Climax brings blistering jet fighter arcade action: easy to pick up and play, difficult to master, with tons of customizable settings and game modes. You can blaze through a single game “storyline” in no time, but mastering every path and exploring every level is always what gave the game depth and purpose.
The After Burner series was at the heart of SEGA’s arcade heritage in many ways – from the 1987 arcade original to the stunning translation to 8-bits on the Master System, through After Burner Climax and its iterations, this series has always been about combing terrific hardware and technology with fast action, clever tactics, and infectious replayability.
The Sky is the Limit
Gorgeous graphics and smooth, intense gameplay aside, one of the defining features of After Burner has always been the wide range of options. We’re happy to say those have made it to mobile: You can select from the F-14D Super Tomcat by Northrop Grumman, the F-15E Strike Eagle or F/A-18E Super Hornet by Boeing; each plane has four custom paint jobs to choose from.
The game also features secret levels, power-ups, and different game modes including Arcade Mode and Score Attack. Returning from the XBLA/PSN version of the game are the EX Options — unlock the power of your arsenal and other power-ups such as unlimited lives and continues, auto lock-on and persistent Climax Mode.
The game will even feature leaderboards – test your mettle against pilots the world over, because there are, as they say, no points for second best when you’re in the danger zone.
In addition to bringing the arcade action and options to the App Store, there are additional iOS features we’ve added:

Launch Trailer & Gameplay Footage
Monday Oct 01, 2012
Thirty years ago, a primal force from the back of the alphabet invaded arcades in an isometric science fiction environment: Zaxxon, one of SEGA’s oldest of old-school salvos in the arcade wars of the early 80s.
Now, we are proud to announce the return of Zaxxon — or more appropriately, the escape: Escape From Zaxxon is coming soon to iPhone, iPad, and Android devices!
The all new game follows in the arcade footsteps — a fast-paced game to challenge your skills and take command of the ship from Zaxxon all over again.
Thirty years ago, the first wave of arcade fever was hitting America: a communal electronic experience unlike anything else, early arcade cabinets would bind a generation of kids together as shorthand for their shared experiences with an emerging art form (even if back then, no one wanted to call it that).
Let’s not be too fancy, though: arcade games were about fun and challenge. The best games had to be hard enough to take in money, but fun enough that you’d want to keep coming back. Zaxxon was indeed painfully difficult, but wanting to fly a starship against an alien horde is one of the most primal forces known to humankind.
Here’s a look at two different versions of the Zaxxon arcade cabinet — that wood paneling is how you know you are in for a quality experience:
Zaxxon was ported to a ‘who’s who’ of old-timey game systems, including the Amiga 1000, Apple II, Atari 400/800, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari XL, MSX, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Dragon 32, ColecoVision, Intellivision, Sega SG-1000 (the forerunner to the Sega Master System, for which the game also appeared in a 3D version) and TRS-80 Color Computer.
And just in case that whole video game fad thing didn’t stick around (and for a while, it seemed like it wouldn’t), there was even a board game version that Milton Bradley put out in 1982:
