If you’re looking for a simple game about jet combat, Sky Gamblers – Afterburner will almost certainly scratch that itch. You don’t have to worry about anything other than lining up your shot and not crashing into mountains. I suspect it’ll really appeal to those who want to enjoy the multiplayer element where they can take on their friends rather than the simple AI villains who make this game mindless fun.
Sky Gamblers - Afterburner is the latest game from a studio that has spent 10 years churning out similar phone-only dogfighting games, and it absolutely shows. Every visual and 3D model in the game looks like something that would be running on a five year old iPhone. The story is simply...there, and has little care or thought put into it, but I can appreciate that the gameplay is successful, and the visual customisation is a fun touch, too.
All of this isn't to say that the game isn't enjoyable, it certainly can be, but the spark of greatness currently isn't there. It's a shame because the refined controls allow for a tremendous level of aerial freedom, and the missions, while not exactly narratively compelling, do a good job of pushing you onwards to the next bigger and better aircraft. In fact, it gets so much right that its flaws become all the more obvious, unfortunate, and deflating.
