What you need to know

  • Super Leap Day is a one-button platform game coming to Apple Arcade soon.
  • A new level will be available for gamers to play every day.

Apple Arcade is set to gain a new platformer, but this time with a twist. Super Leap Day requires just a single button and will have new levels made available each day.

Created by Nitrome and playable on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, Super Leap Day is coming to Apple Arcade "soon," although gamers can pre-order it from the App Store now.

In the game, there is a new King on the Throne and he has created some of the most devious challenges yet for the unwitting contestants. Avoid traps in the Rainy Ruins, boost up walls and along ceilings in Capital Highway, get all topsy turvy in Gravity Galaxy, and much more. Players will also discover new contestants and unleash their abilities like floating up high with Puffer's inflatable head, vacuuming up everything with Spout's powers of suction or travel round surfaces with the sticky powers of the mysterious creature Goop.

Being an Apple Arcade game, Super Leap Day won't have any in-app purchases or ads and will be free for all subscribers to the game subscription service.

This game might not need a game controller, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider picking one up! Our roundup of the best iPhone game controllers is a great place to start your research, too!
