  • Tiny Crossword
  • Solitaire

The new App Store Greats add a number of familiar titles from over the years, including:
  • Monument Valley
  • Mini Metro
  • Threes!
  • Fruit Ninja Classic
  • Chameleon Run

Apple Arcade is also gaining a number of new "Arcade Originals" today:
  • NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition
  • Simon's Cat: Story Time Tactile Games
  • Star Trek: Legends
  • The Oregon Trail
  • Cut the Rope Remastered
  • SongPop Party

App Store vice president Matt Fischer said that Apple Arcade has become a place for friends and family to enjoy games on a safe and private platform while also touting the praise the service has received since its launch.
In its inaugural year, Apple Arcade won over media critics and fans for its creativity, diverse portfolio, and commitment to players' privacy, providing a safe gaming service to enjoy with family and friends.
Apple Arcade launched in September of 2019 as an ad-free mobile game subscription service with no in-app purchases. Apple Arcade is available across the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Mac for $4.99 per month, or as part of the Apple One bundle.

If you already subscribed to Apple Music or Apple TV+ for a year, does it use the money you already spent towards the cost of Apple One if you subscribe to that?

Are these just rereleases of the original games into Arcade, or does the "Plus" in the names mean they've added new content?

Don’t forget the latest game from Platinum: World of Demons.
It seems like, basically, a new Okami game. It looks so cool!

It’s a pity that the editor hasn’t mentioned it on the post. Maybe it deserves a post on it’s own?

Why would many of these games prompt people to purchase arcade? Many are already free on the app store

Has this rolled out to anyone yet?

I like the addition of more casual/classic games. Sometimes I just want something simple to play while listening to an audiobook, podcast or music.
