Highly recommended for a buck! It's a great arcade-type shooter, and works well on the touch screen.

For a game this type, i wouldnt highly recommend it if it was tilt-based.

There's an all-touch control option which works great, and a couple i-havent-tried-tilt-controls.

Reprint from HDMI thread about Afterburner Climax

Will order the new adapter.
Yes, there has to be a big difference for the ipad 3 with the newer vs older connector. Rest assured, when you see my vids below, I think you will agree with me.

Ok, Here are my vids and others for Afterburner Climax. Unfortunately, this is my first time ever to do a hdmi video shot and also post it on the web, so it doesn't look too pretty. This is a picture of my tv using wide zoom mode which stretches the screen to the top and bottom, but keeps the resolution aspect level the same. I am sure there is some added lag with the zoom stretch mode and also probably from tv digital signal processing, but unfortunately, I do not have a monitor or a game mode on my tv.

Maybe you all can take a look, and let me know what you think. I think there is a huge difference for the ipad 3 using the newer connector vs the older one.

Sorry, but the easiest way to post vids for me seemed to be using skydrive, it doesn't stream really well, so you will have to wait for it to buffer completely to get a good view of it. I tried to keep the clips short, but as you see, both my ipad 3 and ipad 3 hdmi hardly show any framerate issues at all. In fact, after ios 6.1.3 (which made a huge difference for the newer ipad 3 hdmi connector), it pretty much runs better than an arcade game with an occasional framerate hiccup.

The links are below, let me know what you all think. Especially too, whether ipad 3 hdmi 30 pin connector looks better than ipad 4 lightning connector hdmi. The ipad 4 lightning connector version on Menneisyys vids seems a slight bit smoother than my skydrive vids of the ipad 3 with newer 30 pin hdmi connector because inherently the ipad 4 will have slightly higher framerates than the ipad 3 cause of it's better cpu/gpu.

However, I could swear that the screen resolution looks alot better on my ipad 3 than ipad 4 hdmi tv because of the reduced resolution of the lightning connector. Also, as noted in above posts, the lag on the ipad 3 hdmi is far smoother, so I feel no control issues, but I think there would be some on the ipad 4 or ipad mini cause of the delay induced on the airplay lightning hdmi. So I think the ipad 3 30 pin hdmi looks and plays better than the ipad 4 lightning, anyway from these videos, for what it is worth...

Let me know what you think...

Tap on the loading message (then tap the play button) to get it to play a little bit faster. But make sure it caches enough, or it will stop. Also, sometimes skydrive is really slow, so maybe hit the download button at the top to download the file, then you can watch it without the buffering.
