Try these six Apple Arcade games

This video draws attention to a half dozen of the offerings that debuted this fall.

What the Golf? by Fun Plus bills itself as “golf for people who hate golf.” It’s a silly, physics-based parody of a game maybe your dad plays.

It’s on Apple arcade now.

Cat Quest II is an “open-world action-RPG set in a fantasy realm of cats and dogs,” according to the developers, The Gentlebros. It’s for 1 or 2 players.

This pet themed role-playing game is on Apple’s gaming service.

Super Impossible Road isn’t your ordinary racing game. It sends players across dangerous courses that twist and coil over beautiful galactic backdrops. 1 to 4 players can appear in split screen, and playing a little dirty is part of the fun.

Sneaky Sasquatch by RAC7 Games lets players live the life of a Sasquatch doing regular, everyday things this mysterious forest dweller does: sneak around campgrounds stealing from picnic baskets, play golf, ski, learn to drive. That sort of thing.

Sneak over the Apple Arcade to grab this title.

Unleash the Light lets fans of Steven Universe play as their favorite character in a role playing game. It features an original story co-written by Rebecca Sugar, the creator of this Cartoon Network show.

Don’t wait. Get it now.

Patterned by BorderLeap is much more meditative. It’s a puzzler that seeks to immerse players “in the beauty and joy of seamless, repeating patterns.”

It’s available today.

Exit the Gungeon is a bullet hell dungeon climber packed with high-speed adventure. This is the sequel to the popular Enter the Gungeon.

Play all these on Apple’s gaming service

This title, and over 100 more games, are all part of Apple Arcade. Playing any or all of them costs $4.99 a month, and no more — in-app purchases and ads are banned from Apple Arcade.

Every offering is playable on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac, with game state jumping from device to device as they switch. Plus, many titles support Xbox and PS4 controllers, not just touchscreens, keyboards/mice, or the Apple TV remote.
