    Follow Mother’s orders and find your way out of this irrationally fun game

    • Sleek minimalist visuals
    • Original blend of racing and flying elements
    • Futuristic soundtrack
    • Nonlinear gameplay
    • Simple, fun, challenging, and very addicting
    • Unforgiving gameplay
    • No hint system

    "Become sentient"


    Without placing a lot of hope in the final product, Mother created you. Now it’s up to you to figure your way out of this maze before she turns against you and wipes your data clean. Welcome to DATA WING. Designed for the Android and iOS platforms, you’ll guide a small triangular data packet as it moves its way across different stages, racing to the very end to prove that yes, you can become sentient, too. You’ll complete different objectives in each level. However, keep in mind that Mother is watching you and at all times demands absolute obedience.


    With sleek minimalist visuals that run incredibly well, a wonderfully original blend of racing and flying elements, a futuristic soundtrack, and nonlinear gameplay, you’ll enjoy this surprisingly fun and addicting game that will push you to the limit as you play.


    Yet, some casual gamers may find this game overwhelming due to its unforgiving gameplay that lacks any kind of system to help you get through some of the more difficult levels.

    Wonderful game! I can bet it is so far the best game I have played on mobile. Love the whole atmosphere that the game creates. As for a rally/drift enthusiast controls are perfect to feel the joy of sliding through various corners. Top it with soundtrack similar to Onra music it is perfect. By the way who's the composer for the game's music?

    Maybe you should add a freestyle or online mode where you play challenges with other people

    I don't often play games and I never review them. But this game absolutely merits five stars. The writing is stunningly brilliant, kind of like if Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was made into an arcade game. A very simple and somehow-complex 1980s arcade game. With lots of fun and poignant nerdy jokes, and all female characters. The story is full of mystery and human intrigue, and somehow also a nihilistic treatise on technology and how it functions in our life. And I sincerely apologize if that ruins any surprise for anyone still reading this review.
