It’s a new month and that means new games every Friday for those who are subscribed to Apple Arcade.
This month’s lineup begins with the Amazing Bomberman from Konami.
While waiting for the return of Super Bomberman R that is set to come out next year (read all about it here), fans of the explosive multiplayer game can start blasting each other to the rhythm of the music with Amazing Bomberman starting this Friday (5 August).
The teaser trailer of the game doesn’t show much and as a long-time fan of the franchise, it looks like a mesh between the classic Bomberman game and the distraction of Beatmania – a once popular music franchise that Konami pioneered.
My Talking Tom+
Back in the early days of the iPhone, one of its most popular apps was an animated cartoon cat that would repeat whatever you say in a cute voice. It was novel, and it became a phenomenon.
On 12 August, My Talking Tom+ will join Apple Arcade plus. Now a virtual pet, players can adopt Tom, pet, poke, dress, and even talk to Tom, while tending to his needs, and more, all without microtransactions.
