Crossy Road Castle joins Apple Arcade, becomes one of first hit iOS games to jump in
Fans of the Crossy Road mobile game on iOS and Android might have a reason to be more interested in Apple Arcade: A new version of the app called Crossy Road Castle will be coming to subscription service later this year. Fans of nostalgic platform games like Mario and Frogger will love this colorful app. Crossy Road Castle supports local multi-player for four people, and will work with PS4 and Xbox controllers.
In Crossy Road Castle players will climb colorful castle towers, instead of crossing roads and dodging cars like they do in the original app. The levels get more difficult as you progress. Along the way you’ll collect coins, unlock characters and defeat enemies like the Crossy Road Eagle. Perhaps the best part? Earning hats to dress up your characters.
The app plans to launch with the Unihorse Tower, a level with an endless climb into the air, with more towers and characters to come in the future.
The original 2014 Crossy Road app, developed by Hipster Whale, was downloaded over one million times in the Google Play Store. Apple’s App Store doesn’t display its download numbers. The developers also created retro games like Shooty Skies, Pac-Man 256, Piffle and a Disney version of Crossy Road.
Crossy Road Castle will join the ever-growing list of games available for iOS devices for $4.99 (£4.99, AU$7.99) per month. Apple Arcade offers unlimited access to a catalog of over 100 games. The subscription service, first announced in March, debuted launched early as part of iOS 13’s public beta, with several games ready to play. After iOS 13.1 became available, the service launched for other promised devices.
