Crossy Road comes as a 2D platform to Apple Arcade
Crossy Road became a sort of thing when it came onto the market five years ago. The Freely Playable Frogger -esque Tapper showed a chicken that ran over a heavily traveled road. Despite the simple premise, the game became an instant hit.
It is no surprise that there is a sequel, though the format of this sequel is somewhat unexpected. Crossy Road Castle which will be part of the Apple Arcade later this year, is a multi-player 2D platformer.
Early screenshots (seen in the gallery below) show some familiar faces, including the famous White Chicken and the infamous Crossy Road eagle returning in the form of a boss fight. [1

However, apart from the graphic and character similarities, the games seem to be completely different. Crossy Road Castle seems to have more to do with Masocore platformers like Super Meat Boy than the original Crossy Road .
Given the complexity of its platform challenges, will support controllers [including the recently added PS4 and Xbox One controllers] as well as local multiplayer games for up to four people.
At the start of the game, there will be a level, "Unihorse Tower", which is referred to as "forever in the air". Additional characters and levels will be added after launch, scheduled for later this year.
