Description from official website:
"It's sometime in the near future. With the TV rights to all the sports on Earth accidentally sold to a Martian megacorporation, people were a bit lost for what to watch on a Saturday afternoon.

Then someone came up with the bright idea of televising a sport that wasn't 'on' Earth, but 30,000 feet above it, and the Airburst Federation was born!

Play against up to 3 other human players and up to another 8 computer players in the most manic game this century!

Protect your rings of balloons from the razor sharp flying balls and try to burst your opponents out of the sky!

Play in 15 different game types, from a straight Levels game (with 60,000,000 or so different level combinations), Deathmatches, Russian Grenade Roulette and even Football! (Levels and Deathmatch fullly playable unregistered, the other 13 game types require registration).

Registered players can edit their character's balloons and even design custom skins and place stickers (earned in the Castles game) on their balloons.
"

Airburst was followed by Airburst Extreme and renamed to Airburst Classic afterwards.

Programmer Aaron Fothergill wrote a postmortem for iDevGames.com.
