Estimates place Apple's App Store as the largest app store with over two million apps. Other estimates say Google Play Store is the biggest, but there is certainly plenty of demand for a premium app store market.
Apple Arcade released on September 19th, 2019, in 150 countries around the world, including the United States and Canada. Its premium games can have more polish than the regular app store. With the ability to play games on iOS devices, Mac, iPad, and Apple TV ad-free, there are too many reasons to get Apple Arcade. These are 10 Apple Arcade games that make the subscription worth it.
10 What The Golf?
The rules of golf don't apply when playing What The Golf. You'll be able to latch onto walls and ceilings, directing the ball in a way you never thought possible. Forget everything you think about golf when you're playing What The Golf. It takes after the game of golf, but also games like Angry Birds and Human: Fall Flat. It's like the game doesn't have an identity because it's courses are so varied. What The Golf is flippin' fun, and it's something that needs to be experienced. It's yet another reason to subscribe to Apple Arcade.
9 Skate City
Apple Arcade is a revolutionary platform, and it's one that is launching with a wide variety of games. Find this game on the Apple App Store and enjoy it with the confidence you'll be playing a premium game.
Skate City is a game about skateboarding, but it's so much more than your average skate game. It's remarkably intuitive and has polished graphics. This game looks beautiful when it's played on a mobile device, a Mac, or when it's streamed via Apple TV. This game does the skateboarding genre justice and is reminiscent of hit franchises like Skate and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.
8 Oceanhorn 2: Knights Of The Lost Realm
One of the most alluring games to launch on Apple Arcade is Oceanhorn 2. At first glance, it appears to resemble The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild. The familiar appearance of the protagonist gives us pause. Oceanhorn 2 is a role-playing game with more than 15 hours of content.
By solving puzzles and facing off against massive bosses, players can progress through Oceanhorn 2. The game is both arduous and rewarding. It's available now, so subscribe to Apple Arcade right away.
7 Super Impossible Road
Cheating at every possible opportunity is recommended in Super Impossible Road. You have to reach the finish area as quickly as possible—using any means necessary. Knock opponents off the track into cold outer space or take a detour that ends up working in your favor. It's a heart-racing race game that you'll be sure to love.
Super Impossible Road is a sequel to the game Impossible Road. It has tremendous replay-value and unique tracks. It wouldn't be out of the question for Apple Arcade to make a sequel to this game.
6 LEGO Brawls
The LEGO Group has broadened its horizons by including games from various genres. In the past, we've seen racing games such as LEGO Racers and numerous action-adventure games such as LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Now, LEGO Brawls has released as part of Apple Arcade.
LEGO Brawls is a mobile fighting game that is one of the best examples of an Apple Arcade game done right. With the ability to play with a controller, it transcends that of a typical mobile LEGO game. The gameplay is intuitive, and it's jam-packed full of wondrous delight.
It's easy to see that Apple Arcade offers higher quality games with better resolutions and premium gameplay. The service can be tried for free during a trial period, so there is little reason for Apple device owners to not try it out.
Spelldrifter is a deck-building tactical role-playing game. Using a deck of cards, players engage in turn-based combat to best their foes. As you progress in Spelldrifter, the matches become more intense, and your deck of cards grows. Using your deck of cards, you'll have to be efficient and effective to win at the game.
4 Hot Lava
Many of us had pretended the floor was lava when we were a kid. This incredibly fun and immersive app takes the childhood game to a new platform. It's unlike any other game on the app store, and it is one of the best apps to hit Apple Arcade so far. Hot Lava's environments are a delight to explore. To sum it up, Hot Lava is ridiculously fun, and it's something Apple Arcade subscribers should download as soon as possible.
Apple Arcade is the next best thing since sliced toast. Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but Apple Arcade is gaming satisfaction near its best. One of the biggest reasons to subscribe to Apple Arcade is to play Pilgrims. From the developer who brought you Machinarium comes Pilgrims, a unique point-and-click adventure. You'll find a variety of objects while playing Pilgrims. It's up to you to figure out which items are needed to solve a puzzle. The interactions you have are interesting, to say the least.
The Apple Arcade exclusive Possessions is close to virtual reality, although you don't actually use a VR device. The way the game positions and swivels is remarkable on so many levels. The objective is to position the room so that you can unlock a hidden spot.
It sounds confusing, but it will become abundantly clear what to do once you start playing. Added possessions in each room present a new challenge waiting to be accomplished. Playing Possessions on devices like the iPhone X is very intuitive.
1 Speed Demons
Speed Demons is one of those games you can play for minutes and hours without thinking twice. In Speed Demons, you race against enemy cars, which are called demons. Trying to progress through tracks while avoiding traffic is immensely entertaining.
This premium title feels nice and is unlike other games. There is a surplus of racing games on the App Store, but few can compare to the polish of Speed Demons. It doesn't cost money besides the subscription fee for Apple Arcade, so you can be confident the game won't try to spam you with microtransactions.
