Você pilota um caça supersônico de última geração, tendo de enfrentar caças inimigos e desviar de seus mísseis. O seu ponto de vista é tridimensional (sem óculos), mas você não está dentro de seu avião: ele aparece na tela, e é comandado "de fora".
In conclusion, I have to say that Tengen really outdid themselves here, which is surprising for an unlicensed company that made an incredibly bad port of Shinobi and nearly got sued to death. After Burner succeeded on a number of levels and it seems to be surprisingly hard to find for a fairly common game (in terms of production numbers) for some reason. If you're into shooters and want to look at a good version of After Burner, without a doubt check this one out, you'll be pleased.

Afterburner has plenty of flaws and isn’t going to make it on anyone’s top lists for the NES, but Tengen did a respectable job on this port. It’s also worth mentioning that this game plays better than either Top Gun offering and F-15 Strike Eagle as well, so fans of the genre or of nostalgia in general will find it worth spending at least a little while with it. Give it a try because you have nothing to lose.
