Data Wing is a racing game where you guide an arrow through courses, race opponents, and aim for the fastest lap times.

The varied skill-based challenge and a simple story combine for an elegantly designed experience.

NotesAccessibility Notes


Typically, holding down on the right makes you turn right, and holding down on the left makes you turn left, but you can reverse this. To brake, you need to hold down both sides of the screen. You need to have quick reactions in order to quickly turn around tight bends and react to the course ahead.

While the text in menus and subtitles is high contrast, it is also quite small, making it difficult to read on occasion. There are several screen effects, like chromatic aberration, that are on by default but can be disabled in the settings.
