Disney Dreamlight Valley is a life simulation game starring Disney characters, and it has previously been available on console platforms. The ‌Apple Arcade‌ version of the game includes the base version and the A Rift in Time expansion that is a paid option on other platforms.

Compared to other versions of the game, the ‌Apple Arcade‌ version does not have in-app purchases and thus does not include Star Path seasons or the Premium Shop.

Sonic Dream Team is a racing game that stars popular Sonic characters, while Puzzle & Dragons Story is an RPG adventure match-3 game. Turmoil+ is an oil rush simulation game that tasks players with digging oil to make money and grow the nearby town.

Many of these games were announced back in November following the October price increase to the ‌Apple Arcade‌ service. ‌Apple Arcade‌ now costs $6.99 per month in the United States, up from $4.99 per month. ‌Apple Arcade‌ games are free from all in-app purchases and ads.

I forget that Apple Arcade even exists. Every 6 months I review what's available and find nothing.

To be fair Animal Crossing took off because of the pandemic. It was the perfect game at the perfect time.
Maybe New Horizons, but the GameCube one was a runaway success. The Wii one was also great, and a few others scattered here and there pretty much rode on the coattails of the original few’s success. I will say though that I almost bought a switch just for that game. It’s fantastic.

Sonic Dream Team is not a racing game. It is an original 3D Platformer (and Apple Arcade exclusive).

Finished Sonic Dream Team last night. Surprised Apple didnt go harder on promoting it themselves since it's the closest thing to a full "console" game they've actually funded. It's a really fun time.
I'd argue Fantasian is a full console experience, perhaps Beyond a Steel Sky as well.

Well, then you’re simply not the target audience. Which is, of course, perfectly fine.

Personally, as someone interested in smaller, “indie” sort of games, I found a number of very enjoyable games on Arcade.
The fact that I don’t play often or for long, however, still made me drop the subscription as an unnecessary cost.
