Best Apple Arcade Games

Apple Arcade has been a huge hit with gamers since it launched in September 2019. The game service, which is a subscription-based extension of the App Store, promised more than 100 games in its launch window, all of which would be free of microtransactions, subscription offers, or advertisements. Players would be offered a free month to try out the service, and then would be charged $4.99 a month for access to these games, which could also be shared with up to six family members for their iPads, iPhones, Mac laptops, or Apple TVs. But with so many titles available for the service, and more being added on a regular basis, how can you tell which ones are worth your time or the space on your devices? Fear not! We dove into the Arcade to find the best games on the service that will keep you engaged for hours, and we'll be adding more as we discover new gems. Best of all, you won't need any quarters to keep playing these games! We've also got you covered on the newest Kids and Teen games of 2019 if you're looking for the hottest titles of this year.
