Nothing can get that song out of your mind.) If that refrain doesn't send you into a Tom Cruise-and-Val Kilmer tailspin, this iPhone coda might not carry enough action on its own.
I had fun playing bits of the game ahead of its early-May release, but I couldn't separate the fantasy of living Top Gun from this iPhone iteration. And why would I want to? Maverick and Iceman are back, now as instructors at the Top Gun school; the gamer plays a new recruit. Story text and illustrations break up the 15 missions; Kilmer's likeness is included, while Cruise's is not."
