topgunNot only is this game based on one of the most popular flight simulation movies of all time, it also is the best 3D first person airplane shooter game out on the iPhone.  The Top Gun iPhone app has captured it all in this action packed sky battle.  You will have to use your heat seeking missiles and Vulcan Cannons to shoot down opposing jets and migs.  You will also have to use your finely tuned flying skills to dodge air to air and surface to air missiles that will be launched at you from the ground.  Try and survive the Danger Zone and bring peace to the skies!

This gaming app also includes a full soundtrack that comes straight from the Top Gun movie.  You will love to to go back in time and relive all the action from the movie right from your mobile phone.  In the game you are a new pilot who is being trained by Maverick and Iceman at the Top Gun Academy.  The communists have launched a new attack on freedom and it is up to you to regulate in Naval Space and fend off the bogies that are flying too close.  You can use a fighter jet or stealth bomber to accomplish the missions in each level, and you will gain awards and medals as you valiantly protect your comrades.
