Apple Arcade is helping subscribers beat the heat with its huge catalog of awesome games to play on iOS. July saw the release of various games like HEROish and Subway Surfers Tag. August is going to knock it out of the park with the launch of four new games on the service, including a sequel to an iconic game.
Kicking off with the big gun, the highly anticipated sequel to Halfbrick Studios’ 2011 game, Jetpack Joyride 2 is finally releasing this month. Barry Steakfries is back for another chaotic adventure with updated HD graphics, new animations, new mechanics, and a whole new way to play. Scientific experiments and secret labs are once again going to be ruined and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
Konami’s competitive action game also graces the platform. It is part of the Bomberman series with jaw-dropping visuals and music made exclusively for the mobile version. The soundtrack forms the heart of the game as the battles will continue to change according to the rhythm of the music. Players can enjoy the game through online and friend battles and the practice mode is there to hone their skills.
Big names in the App Store
Another iconic game, everyone’s favorite virtual pet game, returns to Apple Arcade, in a new and reimagined form. Like any real pet, players must take care of Tom, feed him, play with him and, above all, pet him a lot. He is an absolute delight for children as he will repeat everything they say while giving fun reactions.
Alike Studio’s cute, point-and-click sci-fi puzzler will be the final game in this month’s lineup. Players take on the role of Kosmo, a clumsy space explorer searching for his robot girlfriend Nora, whose parts are scattered through space due to an accident. The game takes players to the most bizarre places as they embark on this heartbreaking love story.
Apple Arcade is a monthly subscription service that costs $4.99/month and provides access to a plethora of great games.
