Apple Arcade Adds Five New Games for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV

Apple Arcade today gained five new games for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV:

  • Decoherence by Efecto Studios: A strategy game that tasks players with building robots and planning a battle strategy for victory.

  • INMOST by Chucklefish: An atmospheric, story-driven puzzle platformer following three playable characters within one dark, interconnecting story.

  • Mind Symphony by Rogue Games: A classic shoot-'em-up game with both an intense, fast-pace mode and a calm mode with peaceful, rhythmic interactions focused on relaxation.

  • ShockRods by Stainless Games: A vehicle-based arena shooter where players score points by shooting opponents, achieving objectives, scoring goals, stealing the other team's flag, or dealing the most destruction.

  • Stela by SkyBox Labs: A cinematic, atmospheric platformer about a young woman witnessing the final days of a mysterious ancient world.


Apple Arcade also added two more games for the Mac on Thursday:

  • Pilgrims by Amanita Design: A playful adventure game in which players roam the land and solve various tasks using dozens of items and unique characters, and without being obliged to follow a single designated path.

  • Shantae and the Seven Sirens by WayForward: Traverse a vast, interconnected undersea world, make new Half-Genie friends, and battle the Seven Sirens as part of an all-new tropical adventure.

Trailers for some of the games:







Apple Arcade is Apple's new subscription-based gaming service, providing iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac users with access to dozens of games with no in-app purchases or ads for $4.99 per month. With these additions, Apple Arcade now has a total of 80 games for iOS and tvOS, while there are 61 games for the Mac.

Apple Arcade officially launched on September 19 for iPhone and iPad, although some users were able to access the service a few days early. Either way, the one-month free trial period will soon come to an end for early adopters.

Were any games dropped from the Apple Arcade?

Have any reporters asked Apple if/how/when apps will be dropped from the Arcade?

Does Apple announce/publish any information about the popularity of particular apps?

What do developers in the Arcade think it so far? Have any made comments, or are they under an Apple NDA?

Well, okay. Looks like someone is trying to work their way up to asking the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. Keep going... you're almost there.

Message to forum: Do not spoil the answer for this man. There are 42 reasons to let him keep questioning. :D

I signed up for the free trial, realized it was useless, and need to cancel before I get charged.

uh too bad you didn't find anything of value - my two boys are freaking loving it - they play while I am driving them to school - later in the day they continue in their iPads or Apple TV -

I actually don't know what you can get from Apple for $5 that provides this much value.

The main things I really like about Apple Arcade are that the $4.99/month subscription covers the cost of all of the games and there are no additional in app purchases.

Apple Arcade has done really well in attracting immersive 3D games, but I hope they don't forget about the "puzzle" category. I'd also like to see card games and crosswords and stuff.

It doesn't all have to be FPSs.
