Hi guys and welcome back for another review! Sorry I didn’t update last week or last night _ I was suffering from the Winter bug and last night just wasn’t going to plan. But I will be updating again tomorrow, and all the videos for last few weeks will be uploaded as soon as possible.
So as promised, this post is all about the top 5 most accessible games on Apple Arcade. For those of you who don’t know, Apple Arcade is a subscription hub from Apple, where you can download and play out-rolling games with no additional adds or costs. You get all this for just £4:99 a month, and after signing up you get 1 month free! So if you are a gamer and you haven’t done this already, go on to the app store on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, and sign up.
No 5: Sonic Racing
Sonic Racing is a multiplayer racing game developed by SEGA, and suitable for players 9+. It lets the player take control of fifteen playable characters from the Sonic universe, and compete in the ultimate multiplayer racing experience. While racing you can collect power-ups, set traps and attack competitors as you drive at high speed!
You can decide how you want to play _ and enjoy single player mode, play with your friend or go big with players online in multiplayer mode! Sonic Racing also lets you create your team _ with each character having its own unique advantage and special Team Ability. There are 15 tracks in total _ each split across 5 zones _ and Wisps are back! These 15 spectacular creatures are here to offer help when overcoming rival teams _ and you get more rewards the more you race!
If I was judging Sonic Racing on how accessible it is on iPhone or iPad, I would give it 4 stars. But moving around and pressing multiple buttons makes it harder to do on Mac, and if you can only use one finger, you crash A LOT! I don’t find it too difficult on iPhone or iPad because I can move my head to select wisps quickly, but this wouldn’t help someone who can’t move as quickly. For this reason, I will give it 3 stars.
No 4: Agent Intercept
Agent Intercept is a single player Action game developed by PikPok, and suitable for players 12+. In it you play as an agent, challenging international agents for the top spot! With a brand new Current Crisis to sink Uko’s sub _ you now get refined steering and improved gameplay.
I’ve only played this game on Mac _ and though I do like it _ I think it has many of the same problems as Sonic Racing. Unless you have a lot of movement, it is very hard to steer the car, so I would like if this could be sorted. Meanwhile, I will give this game 4 stars.
No 3: What The Golf
What The Golf is a single player action game, and suitable for ages 9+. In the words of Apple, it is the golf game for people who hate golf. A silly physics-based golf parody where every golf course is a new surprising type of golf. it adds an amusing spin to the game _ where you will be asking yourself: WHAT THE GOLF.
I’ve only played What The Golf on Mac, but to play you just have to be able to move a mouse and click. For this reason, I will give it a massive 5 stars.
No 2: Pac-Man Party
Pac-Man Party Royale is a multiplayer family game for 1-4 players, developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment, and suitable for ages 4+. A play on the classic game, you can battle your friends both locally and online, playing in hope of being the last Pac-Man standing.
To play this game on Mac, you have to use the 4 arrow keys, but to do it on mobile or on iPad, you just use your finger. If you are aware of or have experience playing Pac-Man, you know how fast you have to go, but this could be hard for some players _ especially the further you get.
But since it’s accessible for fast one-handed play, I will give it 5 stars.
No 1: Grindstone
Grindstone is a single player puzzle game by Capybara games, and suitable for ages 12+.
A sword-slashing puzzle battle, Grindstone is a similar game to others in the board clearing puzzle world. Grindstone Mountain has been overrun with vicious Creeps _ who you have to slay to make your way up its treacherous peak where fortune, glory (and death) await!
Grindstone is another game which only requires you to move a mouse and click, which is why I’ve put it in my number 1 spot with 5 stars!
