Paramount Digital Entertainment will be releasing Top Gun for iPhone in early May. Following in the footsteps of Maverick and Iceman, players start as the new rookie in the Top Gun School. Players will be able to fly missions in the F-22 Raptor or a B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. The game uses the accelerometer and multi-touch allowing players to shoot down opponents, dodge incoming air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles, navigate environments and become one of the skilled few to survive the “Danger Zone!”
- Strap Yourself In – With Maverick and Iceman’s instruction, navigate the “Danger Zone” while engaging and obliterating enemy bogeys in the most action-packed jet shooter game for the iPhone and iPod touch to-date.

- Torch Your Enemies – Steer the fighter jet using the accelerometer to find enemies, draw a lock on to them and take them out.
- Push Your Weapons to the Limit – Strafe enemy ground emplacements with the F-22’s Vulcan cannons or take out MiGs with target-locking anti-aircraft missiles.
