THE BEST APPLE ARCADE GAMES 2021

With all of these games, it can be tough to pick out which ones to download and play first, right? Well we’ve got you covered. We’ve picked out our top ten best Apple Arcade Games for 2021 so far, with a range of genres – so there’s something for everyone.

A screenshot of a battle in Fantasian

FANTASIAN

RPG

A beautiful, exciting RPG brought to you by the creator of Final Fantasy, Fantasian takes you on a breath-taking adventure through nearly 160 hand-drawn dioramas populated by unique 3D characters. Harnessing the spirit of classic turn-based RPGs like Final Fantasy 6, this game offers plenty of stunning scenes and tough battles for you to explore. Check out our Fantasian review here to find out more.

A boss fight in Oceanhorn 2

OCEANHORN 2

RPG

Oceanhorn 2, set a thousand years before the first chapter, leads you on a magical adventure across the mystical world of Gaia, packed with deep mythology and lore. It’s easy to see some Breath of the Wild inspiration in the artstyle, and runs well on Apple products. With over 20 hours of gameplay, huge boss fights, plenty of side quests, and a heap of puzzles, there’s more than enough to keep you busy.

SAYONARA WILD HEARTS

Action

This thrumming music-based action game is certainly hypnotic; serving up pop beats and neon visuals as you dodge and skid through a surreal landscape following a tale of heartbreak. This is definitely an experience worth your time, though you may want to hook up a controller as touch-screen controls are not the most responsive.

ChuChu Planet! Universe puzzle planet

CHUCHU ROCKET! UNIVERSE

Puzzle

Sequel to the beloved Dreamcast classic ChuChu Rocket, ChuChu Rocket! Universe is a vivid stylised Sega title that has you navigating exciting space-themed puzzles. Your main mission? Save the sweet little mice and avoid the scary space cats at all costs!

ASSEMBLE WITH CARE

Puzzle

This neat little puzzle game combines a cool, muted colour palette with the therapeutic art of fixing up retro tech. Take the role of a globe-trotting antique restorer, intent on helping her town’s inhabitants save their most beloved possessions. Each piece is a beautiful metaphor for the fragility of emotions and memories, and the soothing, serene experience of twisting cogs and replacing screws is wonderful for those looking to relax.

LITTLE ORPHEUS

Platformer

Winner of the 2021 Apple Design Award, this stunning, side-scrolling platformer has you hop, skip, and jump across an alien landscape as you explore lost civilizations, undersea kingdoms, prehistoric jungles, and more. Combining the nostalgia of old-school family blockbusters with a fresh and unique setting, Little Orpheus offers up a brilliant little pocket-epic.

WHAT THE GOLF?

Sport… Sort of?

If you are a fan of madcap, chaotic fun found in titles like Goat Simulator and I Am Bread, What the Golf? is a great choice for you. As an inventive little game that radiates an aura of anti-golf and goofiness, it will have you swinging and putting around courses with the aid of office chairs, a horse, cannons, and more. As you can see in the picture above, you’re not stuck with just gold clubs and balls, either – moving house has never been so fun!

MUTAZIONE

Adventure/narrative

Mutazione is a hard one to describe, but it calls itself an adventure exploration game and a… Mutant soap opera? That’s pretty accurate, actually. Get involved in a tantalizing tale where small-town gossip meets the supernatural, as you tend to magical gardens, meet new friends, and uncover secrets. Featuring a rich story, lush, hand-illustrated graphics, and an ensemble of loveable mutant characters, Mutazione is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

MONUMENT VALLEY

Puzzle

From the same creators that brought you Assemble With Care, Monument Valley is a surreal exploration through fantastical architecture and impossible geometry. You are tasked with guiding the silent princess Ida through mysterious monuments as you uncover hidden paths, unfold optical illusions, and outsmart the enigmatic Crow People. The scenes are completely stunning, each being fit to hang on the wall of an art gallery. Reminiscent of M.C. Escher’s painting ‘Relativity’, levels consist of overlapping staircases, geometric shapes, and twisting pillars that are both intriguing and breath-taking, and fit perfectly with the simple character designs. Monument Valley is certainly a spectacle to behold.

Butter Royale

Battle Royale

Taking the ever-growing phenomenon of Battle Royale in a fresh, delicious direction, Butter Royale has you engaging in the food fight of your life. Play solo or in squads against 21 others in snappy, fast-paced, five-minute food-fights. With a huge range of unique themed weapons, plenty of power-ups, and over 80 characters to pick from, this is a great little game to dive in and out of when you want a bit of light-hearted, tasty fun.
