Both Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey are free for a week to benefit anyone quarantined by the COVID-19 epidemic. The developer, Snowman, made the move to “bring a little calm into your homes during these difficult times.”
These endless runner snowboarding games are beautifully designed. Alto’s Odyssey even won an Apple Design Award.
Combine a role-playing game with a pinball machine and you have Roundguard, a new game added Friday to Apple Arcade. It’s a bit like Rogue, but with lots more bouncing. And a silly sense of humor, too.
Plenty of games drop players into an arena to battle friends or rivals over the internet, but Butter Royale takes a much lighter tone than most. It’s a food fight, not a desperate struggle for survival.
This game for players age 9 and up debuted today on Apple Arcade.
