Review DATA WING

Brandon Girod
9.7Excellent
Story is intriguing and non invasive, dynamic racing mechanics, great graphics and art style
Controls could be a little tighter
When it comes to racing games on mobile, there are two things I come to expect: insanely good graphics and the worst storyline I’ve ever read. Too many racing games want to throw a story into everything they can when it ultimately just gets in the way. In Data Wing for Android, that simply isn’t the case. This is a game that manages to expertly craft a story in between gameplay that creates one of the best mobile gaming experiences out there.
I could name a few games where Data Wing borrows inspiration but I won’t because ultimately this is very much its own game with its own personality. In the game, you play as what’s called a data wing. Your job is to deliver packets of data, which is dictated to you by “Mother.” You don’t know much about Mother other than he or she is the program that tells you what to do as dictated by the user. However, early into the game, you’ll begin to have your doubts about what Mother is really up to.
The gameplay is just as good as the story. Your job is to deliver packets of data through levels you must race through. Racing has a lot of great nuance to it. The way acceleration works is that you’re essentially being propelled by thrust from the back. It’s a top-down perspective so all of this combined, turning right or left isn’t as “direct” as other racing games. Seeing as how you have thrust behind you, you can also use this thrust to boost yourself along and off the wall. This is necessary to beat some levels, including ones that have gravity modifiers.
Like I said above, Data Wing is one the best mobile games I’ve played in a long time. Everything about it works. The story is well written, simple yet intriguing. The graphics are simple, too, but fit with the overall aesthetic perfectly. And the gameplay is nothing but fun.
