Apple Arcade is expanding its library of games today by adding 20 new titles, now available for subscribers to play. The list features some new titles from popular franchises such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as “App Store Great” selections.
Apple’s mobile game subscription service has been running continuously since the start of 2019. In addition to adding new games monthly, Apple has enlivened the service with big surprises of this scale. In 2021, the service added over 30 games and changed its model to bundle older mobile games into the platform. Today’s update isn’t that big, but it’s one of the most important updates to the service yet.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Splintered Fate is the biggest addition to the batch, offering a four-player co-op roguelike game similar to Hades. In this game, players join the turtles to fight Leatherface. Disney SpellStruck, a word game starring Disney and Pixar characters, features a full single-player adventure mode, daily challenges, unlockable characters with board-changing abilities, and standard online play. What the Golf? follow-up What the Car? is an absurdist racing game where players control a car with legs, a jetpack, and some bears, completing short, comedic challenges. Cityscapes: Sim Builder is a city-building game where players try to build and maintain sustainable cities.
Apple Arcade also added 16 classic games to the platform. The list includes indie darlings like Limbo, as well as mobile staples like Temple Run. All these games have no ads or microtransactions. Here’s the list of games available now for Apple users.

Digital Trends played all four titles at a recent Apple event and found that all four continue Apple’s streak of releasing high-quality mobile titles. The four games are entirely different, from a casual word game to a systems-heavy city management game, appealing to the diverse audiences that Apple Arcade currently caters to.
