Apple Arcade


Recommended Posts

My free month just ended and I've decided to keep subbing. Really nice curation of games and I'd only managed to play a few during my trial. Just noticed the conversation above about controllers and although I have myriad options I've been connecting my 8Bit Do SN30 Pro exclusively. Works a charm.

 

Will deffo give that Skate game above a go now.

Often of quite good quality - a monsters expedition, for example, was very good.


I do think it’s a good service and it’s a shame it does not seem to have gotten much traction. They’re offering 3 months with every new iPhone now and there’s that big hitter that’s day and date release with PS5 (can’t remember the name) so they’re clearly hoping people start using it. 
 

I would say it’s had 5-6 really good games and 20+ good ones. With a bunch of other stuff that may be your thing. For a fiver a month I’m happy to carry on subbing. 
 

I think for a lot of gamers they just don’t like playing games on their phone any more. Though saying that I’ve been enjoying playing some on my Mac as well like beyond a steel sky and tangle towers. They’re great on the bigger screen in full res.

Yep I have given up playing games on my phone. I used to have a few installed like Mini Metro, Clash Royale & Lost Cities but all have been deleted now. Just play on the iPad now.

i suppose apple don’t mind if where you play as long as you subscribe. No wonder they don’t want Xbox live on there!

Anyone else having trouble launching Alba? It crashed when playing on MacBook and now won’t launch on any of my devices. 


Working here (and sorry, I know that’s not much help).

I got three months of this for free. What's worth a try? So far I've downloaded What the Golf? and Grindstone.


Skate City & pinball wizard. I got more out of what the golf than any other game on it by far though.

Sociable Soccer is really good if you liked Sensible World of Soccer, as it's by Jon Hare and is essentially a modern version of the same game without the licence. 

 

I've only played it with a DualShock 4. I don't expect it's any fun at all with touchscreen controls.

Shinsekai, a great underwater Metroidvania by Capcom. It’s been out on other things since, but Apple Arcade via Apple TV with a DualShock 4 was how I played (and loved) it.

It’s helpful to know the game isn’t broken – it must be an issue with Game Center/Save files. 
 

I’ll see if there’s a way to delete/reset it somehow. 
 

Edit: The game boots in Airplane mode, so it’s a save file thing. I tried booting the game on my MacBook with WiFi off and it also loaded. As soon as I switched the WiFi on, it crashed. :|

The developer will probably be keen to help on this one. Have you contacted them?
