Sky Gamblers - Afterburner - Nintendo Switch Launch Trailer
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. If you just want to get in a jet and shoot down some bogeys, Sky Gamblers - Afterburner is fine, but certainly not ideal.
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.
