AfterBurner is a very simple game to master. Players have a massive amount of ammunition and rockets to fire. While this may sound great, it actually decreases the difficulty level. Players will also be able to access “Climax” mode which gives the ability to slow down time, lock on to an expansive amount of enemies, if not all, and shoot them all down with homing missiles. Players are able to access Climax mode if they stay alive long enough, or if they kill a certain amount of enemies which speeds up the Climax Bar.
