Apple firmly staked its claim in the gaming world on Sept. 10 with more details on its new game subscription service, called Apple Arcade. The service, first announced in March, will cost $4.99 (£4.99, AU$7.99) per month and will let you play over 100 new and exclusive games across the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV. Mac will be coming later.
Apple Arcade launched ahead of schedule as part of iOS 13’s public beta, with multiple games ready to play. Key games on the service include The Enchanted World, Where Cards Fall and Shinsekai: Into the Depths. It became widely available Sept. 19 in more than 150 countries.

iOS 13’s first update, iOS 13.1, arrived almost a week early and brought with it the new iPadOS. The gaming service should now be available across all promised devices. To check out Apple Arcade, open the App Store and tap the little joystick icon at the bottom of the screen.
Here are all the games announced for Apple Arcade. They’re available to play now unless otherwise noted.

The Artful Escape
Developer: Annapurna Interactive
First announced at E3 2017, this one looks like a trip, to say the least. The Artful Escape is about a musician, Francis Vendetti, who’s on a quest for self-discovery. The trailer hints at colorful, wild, mixed-media animation and what I imagine will be an amazing soundtrack. This game is coming soon.
