After Burner II on the Sega Mega Drive

After Burner II is an arcade-style flight game released by Sega in 1987. It is the second game in the After Burner series. In the game, players fly a F-14 Tomcat jet fighter, gunning down enemies while avoiding incoming fire.

After Burner II is a third-person flight shooter in which you navigate an F-14 Tomcat jet through a number of environments, taking out enemy planes and avoiding incoming fire.

You get a standard machine gun and 99 missiles, the missiles are obviously handy for firing against enemies that are further away – not too worry though every few levels another plane appears and you can refill again. The game was quick paced and although you could clear the first few levels later on the pace of the game was frenetic, luckily you got plenty of continues/lives to play with. The graphics are fairly basic and I think that the fighter you are controlling is a bit large on the screen, there was no lag or glitches that I could see when the action got more hectic later on. The audio is good although the sound effects a bit sparse. Its a good shoot em up but more experienced players will probably complete this quite quickly and its unlikely they would revisit the game very often.
