LOS ANGELES, CA– August 20th 2010– Paramount Digital Entertainment and Freeverse today announced Top Gun 2 is now available on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. In Top Gun 2, players jump into the cockpit to engage in air-to-air and air-to-ground arcade combat, utilizing all-new high-speed defensive maneuvers and offensive attacks. Using the accelerometer, players will dodge enemies and deal devastating damage as they navigate through seven unique environments, including outer space.
“Following the success of the original Top Gun app, we wanted to offer fans another opportunity to fly into the danger zone,” said John Kavanagh, senior vice president, Paramount Digital Entertainment.“In Top Gun 2, Freeverse built on the best qualities of Top Gun and added new content, better controls, more action and higher quality graphics to create the fastest, most exciting jet fighting combat we could imagine.”
Top Gun 2 features dynamic level design that keeps players on the edge of their seats with surprise attacks and unique game-flow. Players can choose to pilot one of three jets: the F/A-18 Hornet, the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the F-14 Tomcat. Each jet comes equipped with fully upgradable cannon and missile systems and unique special offensive and defensive capabilities. Three new offensive threats are the Metal Storm attack, which obliterates all enemies on the screen, the Missile Barrage, which unleashes a torrent of missiles, and the Smart Bomb, which offers targeted strikes. Players will blast enemies to a raucous soundtrack by Brooklyn based rockers Daredevil Squadron and the all-time classic composition "Danger Zone."
Additionally, fans that already have the original Top Gun iPhone game can now download a free upgrade for the title. The new Top Gun update allows players to pilot the iconic F-14 jet and adds the afterburner feature to the classic game. The afterburner allows players to activate a high-speed boost to get out of dangerous situations. iPhone iOS 4 compatibility is included in the upgrade.
Top Gun 2 for iPhone and iPod touch is available for introductory price of £1.79/€2.39 until August 23, at which point the game will return to its regular price of£2.39/€2.99 from the App Store.
