Featured Apple Arcade Games

The iMore team loves Apple Arcade, but some games stand above the rest. Here are a few games we think everyone should check out.

Jetpack Joyride 2

As we said in our Jetpack Joyride 2 highlight, this is an addictive shooter that is hard to put down. The main character, Barry Steakfries, flies forward using a jetpack and moves up or down based on your commands. Fly into weapons, powerups, and goodies as you make your way to the end of each level while blasting enemies along the way. 

Cooking Mama: Cuisine!

As we said in our Cooking Mama: Cusine! review, this cooking sim is extremely satisfying and will have you coming back for more. Chop vegetables, skin potatoes, bake desserts, create classy main dishes, and more. There are different ingredients to use each day and it's up to you to find out what you can make with them. 

Steven Universe: Unleash the Light

Whether you're familiar with the cartoon or not, Steven Universe: Unleash the Light is a fun RPG with seven different playable characters. With plenty of combos between all the characters and unique skills among them all, your party can take any form you want.

Over the Alps

It's 1939 in Switzerland, and you're on the run. You'll need to make hard choices that affect the game's outcome as you make your way across Europe. The choose-your-own-adventure-style gameplay is simple, but the story is well-written and compelling from the very first choice until the last.
