Playground Ventures has launched Top Gun Legends and the players went wild. The officially licensed game based on the cult film produced by Paramount Pictures and developed by MotionPix Game Studio is a 3D shooter reminiscent of arcade classics. A race full of adrenaline against the backdrop of the unforgettable feats of “Mav”. The sequel to the film, Top Gun: Maverickstill sees Tom Cruise in the role of the talented driver and the appreciation of the public and critics was not long in making itself felt.
Legends comes in the wake of the enthusiasm for flight techniques of the best pilots in the world and is the only officially licensed mobile game for the Top Gun franchise. Available as a free download for iOS and Android devices, it features 20 iconic characters from the film such as eternal rivals Maverick and Iceman.
Adventure in the skies led by Top Gun pilots
In the early part of the game, some of these characters interact with the player acting as instructors during their first flight. Navy lieutenants are connected to the Wingmen Training Center with RPG elements. Players span four mythical decades in the Top Gun universe! This means having over 20 fighter aircraft models available that can be upgraded and customized. The updates will help take down opponents during PvP game modes such as Endless Run, Battlegrounds, and Test Flight. All through special missions to be completed in a limited time. Earning ranks by completing challenges will allow you to climb the rankings by winning more and more important roles.
“We are determined to capture the same sense of thrill and excitement as the Top Gun movies and deliver it to mobile devices around the world.” These are the words of Jon Gill, president of Playground Ventures which increases its presence in the market with many games coming. Playground released Legends at the same time as the launch of the Maverick movie and the game surpassed 17,000 downloads in the first few days of availability.
Top Gun: from cinema to videogame
The 1986 film became a huge commercial success. We are talking about over 357 million dollars in receipts with a production budget of 15 million dollars. The “Top Gun style” has conquered all ages for decades, starting with the iconic teardrop glasses, passing through the aviator jacket, up to the legendary Kawasaki GPZ 900R motorcycle. Its popularity led to a 2013 reissue in IMAX. Top Gun’s film legacy was selected for conservation in the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress in 2015.
36 Years After Top Gun: Maverick (released May 2022) has accomplished no easy feat. Thanks to modern technologies the film gives emotions with a 4G inverted immersion and the sequel manages to surpass its predecessor. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell hasn’t lost his training and this time it makes you want to become a ruler of the sky.
Legends satisfies the need for speed and precision by turning the player into an aviator. Players will be able to jump straight into the danger zone by building their own squadron with the legendary characters from the film and trying to shoot down enemy planes. The game allows you to experience unique plots over a long period of time; as a Top Gun you will take control of the latest combat MIGs and explosive weapon systems. Together with your teammates you will have to show off every skill to conquer the coveted trophy and be the best officer of the most famous racing school in the world!
