Freeverse Software and Strange Flavour on Wednesday announced that
Airburst Extreme has gone gold master, the final step before a game goes into duplication. It’s the followup to Strange Flavour’s earlier Airburst — a multi-player game in which players try to burst each others’ cushions of balloons at 30,000 feet. In fact, if you’re a registered user of Airburst “Classic,” entering your registration code in Airburst Extreme unlocks an extra game mode. A playable demo is now available for download.
Airburst Extreme sports 32 different game types including an interactive story mode in which you meet each different Airburst Extreme character and fly around the solar system playing Airburst, using your new Extreme powers and foiling the nefarious plans of the Mars Media Mega Corporation. The game features OpenGL graphics, “literally billions of levels,” according to the company, and a custom soundtrack. The demo can be played alone or with up to three competitors on the same Mac or over a LAN. The game costs US$29.95. If the link above fails to work, try
