Apple just added Human: Fall Flat+ to the hundreds of games already in Apple Arcade. And Clue: The Classic Mystery Game+ and Osmos+ joined the service earlier in March.

These “App Store Greats” are available to Arcade subscribers without the usual up-front fee or in-app purchases.

Apple Arcade includes a growing library of classic games

To beef up the number of games in its subscription service, Apple adds previously released titles and calls them App Store Greats. A “+” is added to the name, and the purchase price is $0.

Titles that have been in the service for a while include Monument Valley 2+, Fruit Ninja Classic+ and Sonic Dash+.

A major difference between the Apple Arcade versions and the originals is that any in-app purchases have been stripped out. The same goes for ads, loot boxes and invasive player tracking.

Human: Fall Flat+

Human: Fall Flat+ debuted on Apple’s gaming service on Friday. It’s a humorous puzzle platformer that sends players exploring floating dreamscapes. Wander around castles, snowy mountains or factories looking for routes through. It’s a game about the trip, not the destination.

It doesn’t have to be a solo experience. Online multiplayer with up to 4 players is an option.

Head to the Apple Arcade section of the App store to download and play Human: Fall Flat+. There are versions for iPhone and iPad.

Clue: The Classic Mystery Game+

One of the best-known board games is also ready for your mobile devices. Clue: The Classic Mystery Game+ challenges players to solve a murder. Who did it? With what weapon? In which room?

This is the official version licensed from Hasbro, not a knockoff. It was named an App Store Editor’s Choice for the Most Stylish Game.

Be ready for your next game night with Clue+ from Marmalade Game Studio. It’s available for iPad and iPhone, and can be downloaded now from the Apple Arcade section of the App Store.

Also recently joining Apple’s gaming service is Osmos+. Players discover that being a single-celled organism can be surprisingly exciting. It’s absorb or be absorbed.

The game has already risen to second place on the list of Top 10 games on Apple’s gaming service. Not surprising: Osmos previously won an Apple Design Award and was named iPad Game of the Year.

Osmos+ is ready to download from the Apple Arcade section of the App Store. There are versions for iPhone and iPad.

Play these on Apple Arcade

Access to all of these classic titles costs $4.99 a month. And one subscription works for up to six family members. As noted, there are never hidden costs in the games. In-app purchases are forbidden.

And these are in addition to all the original games created just for Apple Arcade.

Note: First published on March 25, 2023, this article was updated with the release of Human: Fall Flat+.
