What the Media says

This is no mere port of the original; the game's graphics, sound effects and music have all been updated, with superb results. You feel like you're playing a classic, but without the distraction (and, let's face it, detriment) of 16-bit graphics. (...)It's a little disheartening that it's been 25 years since I first encountered the game, but the passage of time hasn't diminished my appreciation for it in the slightest.

Yeah, Kalypso are a great developer with a lot of games in their portfolio that I've enjoyed. I didn't actually know this was coming to iOS, fans of the original Amiga game will probably love this.

It had pretty good reviews on PC with an 11:1 ratio of positive to negative on Steam so shows a lot of promise. I haven't actually played the original or remastered version though, so can't say anything about how it plays, sorry.

Hi all,

I played the original wings using MSDOS eons ago and I do have the remastered steam version. I can tell you it's pretty fun. If you die in the game you die forever. So don't die lol

I wonder how they did the touch controls. I'll be interested if anyone takes the plunge. I might buy it.

I loved the original - the lovely music and the wonderfully touching storyline. Hope this does the original title justice...

I searched Metacritic for this one. The image attached is of the PC version, but imps are a mixed bag. I'll wait for some reviews before deciding on this one. EDIT: image didn't attach 😡 it got a 61/100, with 6 reviews: 1 positive, 4 mixed, 1 negative. Also, 15 user reviews with 7.3/10 average score.

Bought and downloading now - unfortunately I just noticed they've re-scored the music for this, so the original lovely sound track may be lost. I just hope they simply improved the old music rather than entirely rewriting it.
