''Data Wing'' is a 2017 freeware game for iOS and Android. A work by [[https://twitter.com/dan_vogt Dan Vogt]], the game is something of a mashup of ''Asteroids'' (controls and physics) and 2D racing games. If that sounds basic, [[SugarWiki/BetterThanItSounds worry not]].

As the player progresses, it becomes clear that they play as a data carrier inside a young girl's smartphone. Through their tasks for an AI known as Mother, they can access normally-blocked documents that detail her life. Through them, perhaps the "DATA WING" can uncover a higher purpose ...

The game is available [[https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/data-wing/id1206723870 here (iOS)]] or [[https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.DanVogt.DATAWING here (Android)]].

!!Triangle-san! Would you set your payload to these tropes for me?


* DiscOneFinalDungeon: One may think that all they have to do is [[spoiler: clear the Security Nexus]], but it turns out that Mother wants you to go much, much farther.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler: The Data Wing's memory has been wiped countless times prior to the game's events.]]
* MundaneMadeAwesome: All you have to do in the final level is [[spoiler: fly in a straight line toward the right side of the screen. Yet it might be the most tension-filled level of all, for some players.]]
* Retraux: The game includes a visual filter that mimics some distortion effects of a CRT television.
* TimedMission: Some of the levels
* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler: If you were expecting to see what that last message you delivered was, you will be sorely disappointed.]]
