It says that those who have downloaded the game can continue to play it for another two weeks after it leaves the service and that the developers may publish the game on the App Store (with micro transactions and other alterations) and let you continue your game there.]
There’s a new “Leaving Arcade Soon” list in Apple Arcade and it has 15 games in it. The list hints that these games will leave Apple’s game subscription service soon. However, it does not elaborate on when and what will happen to those games.
The thing is, games that are on Apple Arcade are not only free to play for subscribers, and free from microtransactions, but they are also exclusives on the platform.
We can probably surmise that these games will not only be available on other mobile platforms in the future but also enable microtransactions as some of them are designed with it in mind but not activated for Apple Arcade.
The list of games that are leaving Apple Arcade are as follows:
- Dread Nautical – A tactical turn-based RPG with roguelike elements.
- ATONE: Heart of the Elder Tree – A Norse-based adventure game.
- Towaga: Among Shadows – A twin-stick action shooter.
- BattleSky Brigade: Harpooner – A cute shoot-em-up.
- Lifeslide – A multiplayer adventure where you fly a paper aeroplane.
- Over the Alps – An excellently written choose your path adventure game.
- Cardpocalypse – A card-centric RPG about a 90’s kid in a wheelchair.
- VARIOUS DAYLIFE – A life simulator and RPG by Square Enix
- Dead End Job – A cartoony ghost shooter.
- Spidersaurus – An action platformer with lots of shooting.
- EarthNight – An arcade-inspired action side-scroller.
- Spelldrifter – A deck-building tactical RPG.
- ProjectionL First Light – A puzzle adventure with shadow puppet aesthetics.
- Don’t Bug Me! – A stylised strategy game.
- Explottens – A bullet hell shoot-em-up starring kittens
Apple Arcade games can be played on iPhones, iPads, Apple TV, and even on a Mac. At RM19.90 a month on its own or included with Apple One, the subscription offers up an excellent value buffet of games.
With over 200 games in the library and more added every week, it’s only natural that some games slip through the cracks. So if you are an Apple Arcade subscriber, you might want to try out some of these games now before they go away.
