I’m Pushkar, and you’re Reading “Top 5 Apple Arcade Games for iPad & iPad Pro!” I’m been using the Apple iPad Pro 2020 version for about a month now, and one of the things I’ve really been enjoying on this device is diving into the Apple Arcade library of games.
In this article, I tell you about five of the games that I’ve been playing recently that really shine on the iPad Pro. today, we are checking out the iPad Pro 2020, and in particular, we are checking out Apple Arcade game that I’ve been playing while I’ve been isolating myself and my family here at home.
Now, in case you’re unaware or haven’t heard about it, Apple Arcade is Apple’s gaming service, which includes over 100 different playable games. And games are playable on your iPhone, on your iPad, on your Mac, and even on the Apple TV as well.
The best part of Apple Arcade, at least in my own personal opinion is the price. After a one-month free trial, Apple Arcade costs $5 per month or $50 per year, and that cost gives you unlimited access to every single game on the Apple Arcade service.
Just one more quick reminder that Apple Arcade games are playable on the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac. So if you see anything you like and want to try but don’t have the iPad Pro in particular, don’t worry, as long as you have any of those devices, you can give these games a shot.
Starting with Guildlings. Guildlings draws inspiration from classic RPGs, point-and-click puzzlers, and visual novel games, and it tells a lighthearted coming-of-age fantasy story with a mobile game framework. Guildlings is actually brought to you by the same team that brought you the game Threes, that game where you take different threes and line them up and add them together.
The game nails the balance between fantasy and modern life in an offbeat and entertaining RPG that exists in a world of both wizards and wifi, kinda like the movie
“Onward,” if you will.
The script works great for teens and adults alike, and conversations fly
by like text messages packed with jokes. Exploration is fast and precise, and battles, carefully balanced, how challenging they are, with a little bit of a forgiving nature.
It’s all very fun, with success often depending on keeping characters happy, and fights are mostly focused on defense and tiring foes out, rather than killing and maiming.
The first chapter of this game will take you about four or five hours to complete, and I think once you do, you will absolutely want to play more.
Pac-Man Party Royale
All right, up next, the second game I’ve been playing here at home on Apple Arcade on the new iPad Pro 2020 is Pac-Man Party Royale. Now, obviously, being a Pac-Man game, this is a classic, and I was actually surprised to see something like Pac-Man, an established franchise, appear on Apple Arcade, but I’m glad he’s there, because this game is fantastic, not just alone, but especially when playing with others.
The basics of Pac-Man are still at play here. You’re traveling along a maze, eating dots and avoiding ghosts. However, you’re also playing against friends, and if you’re not playing with friends, there will be other computer-controlled Pac-Men all in the same maze, trying to accomplish the same goal. As you eat up the dots, you speed up, increasing your chances of catching a moving super pellet that temporarily transforms you into an unstoppable ghost-eating machine.
In order to win a round, you have to be the last Pac-Man standing, but if at some point you do happen to get eaten, you’re not just down and out; you actually become a ghost yourself, and then you can attack the rest of the players who are still alive and kicking. This brings a competitive
nature to Pac-Man, which, again, is super fun, and I highly recommend this one.
Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm.
All right, next up, let’s talk about one of my favorite games on Apple Arcade, a game I would’ve paid 10 or $15 for on its own if it wasn’t a part of Apple Arcade, and that is Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm.
Oceanhorn 2 is not only one of the best-looking adventure games out there, but it also builds a unique experience on the shoulders of classic video games. You collect powerful items wield the Caster Gun, solve mysterious puzzles, and discover all that the Arcadia land and its neighboring kingdoms have to offer.
Now I know some people are gonna roll their eyes at this comment, but it’s true. Oceanhorn 2 is the closest you’re gonna get to playing a Zelda game on Apple Arcade or the App Store in general. Unless Nintendo does an about-face and decides.
If I have to ding the game for anything, it’s that it makes a lot of assumptions that you’ve played the original and that you understand all the game mechanics right out of the gate. For example, it will assume you already know how to perform a certain action before it’s ever told you how to perform the action, because it told you how
to perform the action.
This is a great Apple Arcade title to play on your iPad with a controller, either a PS4 controller or an Xbox One controller. And in addition, this is also one of those games that’s really good on the Apple TV as well.
Up next on my list, of my favorite Apple Arcade games, at least right now as we speak, is tint. Now this is a game for those of you who
aren’t necessarily gamers, or maybe you are a gamer, but you’re not looking for a game that is fast-paced, high-adrenaline, or
you just want to chill.
tint. is the game that you play when you want to chill, whether you’re a gamer or not. This is a game about painting and seems appropriate to include here, not just because it’s a great game for relaxing.
Each level begins with one or more origami shapes sitting on a page, and your goal is to draw an unbroken line of watercolor paint to each shape in the corresponding color. For example, a red paper
frog might need you to draw a straight red line somewhere
in order to connect it to something else.
Now the challenge is gonna be sometimes there’ll be shape that’s a different color than what’s offered, because you only have the primary colors on your palette. So you might have purple, and you’re gonna need to mix blue and red together in order to get the color you need in order to do that level properly.
They’ve also just added a quarantine-friendly Zen Mode. Zen Mode is a full new book inside of tint., featuring an endless loop of easy levels. Just use your imagination to paint the most beautiful solution, or skip a level anytime if you don’t like it. tint. has 220 levels built in, and they are always adding more.
There’s even a colorblind version and a vision-impaired version as well, to allow as many people as possible to play the game, and it even has a great and fun ambient sound soundtrack.
the last game on my list is Speed Demons. In Speed Demons, you take control of a car racing along a busy highway filled with other cars and trucks that are mostly minding their business.
The problem is that your accelerator is in pedal-to-the-metal mode, and you’ve gotta weave in and out of traffic. The game features 25 upgradable vehicles, whether you want to try your hand a tiny hatchback or a supercar or even something like a semi-truck.
You’ve got over 200 unique events that are customized to the different vehicles and eight different game modes, all wrapped into a high-speed, physics-based game, with up to 100 individual vehicles onscreen at a single time. This game really shines on the iPad and looks great on the iPad.
Oh, and by the way, most games like this are endless racers, or endless runners, where you just keep going until you die. This is not what Speed Demons is. It’s actually level-based. As I said, 200 unique
events built into this game.
So there you have it, guys. Those are the five games that I’ve been playing on Apple Arcade using the iPad Pro 2020 in particular as my gaming device.
