Just like last week, four new games join the Apple Arcade line, which is available across iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS. If you haven’t signed up yet, you get one month free before paying a monthly subscription fee of $5.99.
Ballistic Baseball is from Gameloft Brisbane and is a stylish take on baseball, where the pitcher and batter aim to win the inning. Players’ skill is necessary, as well as a strategy in order to win, be it as pitcher or batter. You can play single player or online with “Play with Friends,” allowing you to choose between one, three, six or nine innings. Online modes provide quick, three inning matches against others.
A new Pac-Man game from Bandai Namco joins Apple Arcade! The iconic character from Toru Iwatani is on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV in a new format as Pac-Man Party Royale. Players challenge their friends by mixing the classic arcade gameplay of Pac-Man with multiplayer gameplay. Up to four players battle it out to be the last man standing.
I’ve heard a lot about Manifold Garden which is from William Chyr Studio and is a first-person puzzle game. You’ll cultivate a garden and open paths forward, with an external expanse in front of you. Sounds ominous and I am here for it. I’m looking forward to this game especially this week.
Things That Go Bump is from studio Tiny Bop and asks that age-old question, “Have you heard something go bump in the night?” We all have at some point, at night especially when the house is quiet and your imagination plays tricks on you. In this case, spirits come alive and are likely to cause trouble for those around them. They’re called yōkai in Things That Go Bump and you’ll have to deal with them as familiar objects and rooms come to life at night.
