Apple also notes that there are a ton more games coming soon, including Legends of Kingdom Rush, Frenzic Overtime, and Leo's Fortune. You can check out a ton more new games in Apple's announcement (opens in new tab) post, too.

At iMore, Oliver is involved in daily news coverage and, not being short of opinions, has been known to 'explain' those thoughts in more detail, too.
Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
I’ve had Apple Arcade with Apple One since One debuted, but I’ve mostly ignored it after giving a bunch of the games a try, since it was filled with worthless indie-crap, but I’m so excited that the service finally has some good, professional quality games! Between NBA2K21 and Star Trek, it is finally worth the subscription. The App Store classics really round out the bunch. It went from a service with maybe two decent games to one with a good 25 worthwhile games overnight!
