'Crossy Road Castle' Now Available on Apple Arcade

Apple regularly adds new games to Apple Arcade, and this week's addition is Crossy Road Castle, made by Hipster Whale, the developer behind the popular Crossy Road game.


Crossy Road is an endless Frogger-style game where the goal is to get various animals and characters across the road, but Crossy Road Castle, which was announced back in October, is a cross between an endless runner and a platformer.

Crossy Road Castle uses a similar art style as Crossy Road, with players guiding characters through a castle that's rife with enemies and obstacles to overcome. The goal of the game is to climb as high into the castle as possible.

Crossy Road Castle can be played solo, but there's also a cooperative mode that allows multiple players to brave the castle using several game controllers or multiple iOS devices.

As with Crossy Road, gameplay will unlock new characters to play. Hipster Whale says that new towers and characters will be introduced regularly.

‌Apple Arcade‌ subscribers can download Crossy Road Castle from the App Store as of today. ‌Apple Arcade‌ is priced at $4.99 per month and provides users with access to more than 100 games with no additional fees or in-app purchases. Crossy Road Castle can be played on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac.

Those graphics look like someone puked up grape juice. I can’t even tell what’s going on.

I really don't understand what the point is of pixelizing modern games. It adds NOTHING to the gameplay, in fact it makes it hard to see what's what.

There's a reason why hardware has advanced to the point that you don't have to make things pixelated on purpose.

This is exactly what so many have been asking from the service, a high quality, hardcore, triple A title. Finally.

With some of the sounds reminiscent of Super Mario Brothers. :p

You're looking at a single screen grab of one level. Motion adds a whole new dimension, so your concerns are not that valid. Maybe try the game and then let us know what you think?

Yeah, the graphics make it very hard to see what’s going on. I did try it.
