Apple Arcade adds 20 new games to its lineup

From turtles and cars to one man’s mountain

Apple’s mobile gaming subscription service Apple Arcade is getting a fresh batch of new games. Today, Apple revealed 20 new games coming to the subscription service.

One of the leaders of the pack is TMNT Splintered Fate, a co-op roguelike adventure starring the turtles. The crew is searching for Splinter, and will journey around New York City looking for clues while also picking up randomized power-ups.

Triband, the studio behind What the Golf? and What the Bat?, is also here with What the Car? It’s a fittingly quirky take on motor vehicles, the kind that Triband has been especially good at over its other games.

Even more are on the docket, including some familiar faces like Getting Over It and Limbo. Here’s the full list of today’s games:

Games coming to Apple Arcade, May 2023

  • TMNT Splintered Fate
  • Disney SpellStruck
  • What the Car?
  • Cityscapes: Sim Builder
  • Chess Universe+
  • Disney Coloring World+
  • Disney Getaway Blast+
  • Farming Simulator 20+
  • Getting Over It+
  • Hill Climb Racing+
  • Iron Marines+
  • Kingdom Two Crowns+
  • Playdead’s Limbo+
  • My Town Home – Family Games+
  • Octodad: Dadliest Catch+
  • PPKP+
  • Temple Run+
  • Time Locker+
  • Very Little Nightmares+

It’s a pretty solid lineup, with some familiar faces and neat new additions in there. I personally like the idea of seeing someone trying to make their way up the hill of Bennett Foddy’s Getting Over It, and the ensuing frustration, in mobile form.

Apple Arcade has had some pretty stellar games hit the service over the years, from Hironobu Sakaguchi’s Fantasian to the recent mobile version of Game Freak’s Pocket Card Jockey. I’m certainly curious to see if some more hits await in this update.
