You pilot a fictional airplane called the SSF-14 fighter, using to descend and to climb it, like in a real fighter plane (although that can be changed in the options under "UP/DOWN"). Playing with a three-button controller and fire the vulcan guns, which have infinite ammunition; is used for missiles, which are limited to 50 at start but get replenished at certain points of the game. Six-button controllers are also supported, with which rolls, still shoot missiles, and fire the vulcan guns, sets the speed to low, speed middle and speed high.
There are 23 stages in all and upon reaching stages 5, 9, 13 and 19, allows you to continue the game from the respective stage, through a new option at the title screen.
During most of its development it was known as Super After Burner.
Similar to the 32X version of Space Harrier, After Burner Complete saw mixed reviews from the press, being seen as a simple port of an ageing arcade game which offered few improvements over the Sega Mega Drive version of After Burner II (released back in 1990).
After Burner Complete is extremely similar to the arcade release of After Burner II, with minor tweaks to make it more suited to a home console environment, and an options screen allowing for adjustments in difficulty and control schemes. But features slightly lower resolution sprites in places and runs at half the frame rate (30FPS vs. 60FPS).
