Just like the Apple TV+ the price is the main selling point.

Demos sucked as well, the frog was a pretty OK arcade, second one they didn't show too much of but by the looks of it it's just a 2D, adventure game, third one was just ****. Apps where the only interaction is swiping left and right can be barely called games.

Hopefully there will be some better games. For 2 months' subscription you get a game like Tropico 3 with endlessly more complexity and dozens of hours of game play before it gets boring.
