Apple has added 20 more titles to its Arcade service today, including What The Car?, TMNT Splintered Fate, Disney SpellStruck and Cityscapes: Sim Builder. There are also updated versions of Temple Run and Limbo.
It’s a break from Apple’s typical pattern of releasing new and updated titles weekly, and has been accompanied by a new ad for the service, below.
There are four brand new games in total, and 16 reworked and updated titles that were once premium or free-to-play games on the regular App Store.
Apple’s senior director of Apple Arcade Alex Rofman said: “Apple Arcade brings together hundreds of fun titles in one gaming destination for our users to discover and enjoy. Today’s launch boosts our award-winning catalog with 20 new games people will love playing and sharing with their friends and families.”
The four new ‘Apple originals’ are:
- TMNT Splintered Fate (Paramount Global)

And the reworked games are as follows:

Apple Arcade has seen some stiff competition from Netflix in the mobile subscription space recently. The streaming giant has been signing up new games from high profile indie developers Ustwo Games (Monument Valley) and Snowman (Alto’s Adventure), and has acquired multiple studios in the last year. It has also set up a studio in LA to build a triple-A game, led by former Overwatch lead Chacko Sonny.
