Apple Arcade normally grows by one game a week, but Apple added no less than 20 new titles to the service on Thursday.

These include TMNT Splintered Fate, What The Car?, Disney SpellStruck and Cityscapes: Sim Builder — all exclusive to Apple Arcade.

Apple Arcade library suddenly gets a lot bigger

Apple Arcade is a subscription service that, for $4.99 a month, brings unlimited access to over 200 games. There are offerings in almost every genre: casual, racing, RPGs, sports, puzzle, story and many more. All are playable on iPhone and iPad, and most can be enjoyed on Mac and Apple TV, too.

Previously, the subscription service had over 200 games, so Thursday’s additions grow the total by about 10%.

TMNT Splintered Fate

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been a cultural phenomenon for decades, and their latest adventure is available exclusively on Apple Arcade.

Splinter is missing and the brothers are under attack. It’s up to players unravel the mystery and discover the sinister hand behind the mayhem.

Download and play TMNT Splintered Fate today.

What The Car?

What the Golf? has been a popular title on the service four years, and now Triband has a follow up: What The Car?

It’s a racing game, but hardly a conventional one. Players need to win even though their car is constantly changing, acquiring features such as legs, wings and even the common cold.

What The Car? is available to play now on Apple Arcade.

Disney SpellStruck

Set out on a journey to the Isles of Tiles to take on challenging crossword-style games in Disney SpellStruck.

Flex your spelling skills with beloved Disney and Pixar characters, including Mickey Mouse, Tiana, Stitch and others.

Disney SpellStruck is now in Apple Arcade section of the App Store.

City building games have been popular for many years, and Cityscapes: Sim Builder puts a new environmental twist on it. Players must carefully balance citizens’ basic needs such as housing, jobs, and utilities, while considering the impact of industry and transportation on the environment.

And all with beautiful 3D architecture.

Apple Arcade subscribers can enjoy Cityscapes: Sim Builder today.

Many new App Store Greats added

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 to demote the special version.

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.

On Thursday, 16 App Store Greats joined Apple Arcade:

Join Apple Arcade for 200+ games

All these and about 200 more are playable with a $4.99-per-month subscription to Apple’s gaming service.

A family can share a subscription, and there are never irritating requests for in-app purchases or questionable loot boxes — these are banned.
