Endless snowboarding game "Alto's Adventure" is set to expand to Apple Arcade this month, with Apple launching "Alto's Adventure: The Spirit of the Mountain."

The game will feature original music and handcrafted audio to provide an immersive experience, and it will be popular with those who were fans of the first "Alto's Adventure" game that came out seven years ago. ‌Apple Arcade‌ will get the title on Friday, March 25.

‌Apple Arcade‌ is gaining new App Store Greats this month, and for those unfamiliar, ‌App Store‌ Greats are classic titles that have been reintroduced on the ‌Apple Arcade‌ platform. "Shadow Blade+" from Crescent Moon Games will come out on March 4, and it is an action-platformer where players take on the role of a ninja named Kuro, racing through different stages filled with traps and enemies.

Popular puzzle game "Monument Valley 2" is also coming to ‌Apple Arcade‌ in March, and players will once again be able to take on the role of Ro, teaching a child about the mysteries of the valley, exploring the environment, and manipulating architecture to progress. The ‌Apple Arcade‌ version of the game includes a new chapter called "The Lost Forest," designed to raise awareness for the conservation of trees.

Several existing ‌Apple Arcade‌ games are set to get notable content updates this March, including "Solitaire Stories," "Disney Melee Mania," and "Taiko no Tatsujin Pop Tap Beat."

‌Apple Arcade‌ can be accessed from the ‌App Store‌ app, and the service is priced at $4.99 per month for the whole family.

I thought Apple Arcade was dumb with dumb games. Then I got a 3 month trial for free and am really liking it. The games are not AAA games. They are casual games but with no micro-transactions. I am having fun, they have new games all the time, and for $4.99/month, its a good value. I get why gamerbros hate it, and make fun of it, and talk down about it... but it is not for them.

People tend to think Apple sees Arcade as a competitor to Xbox Pass etc. I don’t think that’s the case, it’s not going head to head with GeForce Now, Stadia, etc. These are more casual, family games with a specific quality standard and without micro transactions.

And to be honest, either free when getting an AppleTV, at 4.99 a month or less (its ~$3 dls in my country) or bundled with services you already pay for, it’s an amazing value.

Great game.

Serious, not snarky question: does anyone use Apple's gaming subscription? I don't know a single person who does, and almost all of my friends are gamers. Really curious.

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
