Apple Arcade's Not Fooling Around With These April Titles

Apple Arcade, a CNET Editor’s Choice Award pick, added three new games to its growing library in April, including a service exclusive title. The service has familiar and classic games, as well as exclusive titles you can play for $7 a month (£7, AU$10). You can find many of these games in the App Store, but they have paywalls and ads that might hinder your gaming experience. You can play each game without paywalls and ads by using an Apple Arcade subscription.

You can play these games, in addition to others like Crayola Adventures and Bloons TD Battles 2 Plus, on Apple Arcade now.

Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop

Developer: Sega

The latest installment in this unique tile-matching puzzle series is exclusive to Apple Arcade. This installment features an original story with more than 24 playable characters from across the series, in addition to the gameplay fans have grown to enjoy. You can challenge up to four players worldwide in matches, or you can play Endless Mode to climb to the top of the leaderboards.

If you’re new to this series, you have to line up four tiles, called Puyos, to make them disappear. This is a head-to-head battle game, so when you match four Puyos, you can send blank Puyos to block up your opponent’s board. 

Mizuki Hosoyamada, the Puyo Puyo series producer, said in an email to CNET that the series’ head-to-head battle gameplay was a sensation in Japan when the original title was released in 1991. It was so popular that there are now professional Puyo Puyo players.

“I feel that all these factors come together to make Puyo Puyo the unique and popular series it is,” Hosoyamada said. 

Super Monsters Ate My Condo Plus

Developer: PikPok

In this wacky, BAFTA-nominated puzzle game, your goal is to feed condo units to four different kaiju — named Lady Ferocious, Reginald Starfire, Mr. Shigoto and Boat Head who, you might have guessed, has a boat on his head. The Kaiju and condos are color-coordinated, and you’ve got to feed the right condos to the corresponding monster. If you feed too many condos to the wrong kaiju, it’s game over, and we can’t allow these tacky condos to stand. Did you see the weird gray vinyl floors in that one? Hideous. 

Sago Mini Trips Plus

Developer: Sago Mini

According to a study published in the National Institute of Health, gaming in small intervals could benefit a child’s developing brain. And this collection of interactive games could spark creativity and build early literacy skills in young gamers. You can travel and explore far-off lands, like desert islands and the big city, and go on fun adventures. This title includes Sago Mini Road Trip, Boats, Planes and Trains.

You can access these titles and others now on Apple Arcade for $7 a month or $50 annually. You can also try Apple Arcade for free for one month with your first sign-up, or you can get a three-month free trial when you buy a new Apple device. To access Apple Arcade, open the App Store on your iOS or iPadOS device and tap the joystick in the menu bar.
