- Apple Arcade has gained two new card games.
- Hearts: Card Game+ and Spades: Card Game+ can both be downloaded from the App Store now.
The game subscription service Apple Arcade has gained two new card games today — Hearts: Card Game+ and Spades: Card Game+ are both available for download for free if you're an Apple Arcade subscriber. Each game can be played on iPhone and iPad and will be immediately familiar to fans of the popular games.
Both titles come from developer MobilityWare and are well worth a download. Being Apple Arcade games, neither has an ad or in-app purchase in sight which means there is absolutely nothing to get in the way of the fun here.
From the developers that brought you Solitaire by @MobilityWare+, comes two new competitive card games. Get ready to shuffle with Hearts: Card Game+ and Spades: Card Game+ tomorrow.
