5 new Apple Arcade titles coming in July 2022

Apple has announced five new titles coming to Apple Arcade in July 2022, two of which are exclusive to Apple Arcade and three remixes of the existing titles.

You can play these and other titles for free with an Apple Arcade subscription.

1. My Bowling 3D+

My Bowling 3D+ is a Ten Pin Bowling game that features realistic graphics and environments with rigid body physics. Game mechanics are centered around a swipe-based interface that’s easy to pick up. According to developer iWare Designs, the touch interface lets you simulate shots like the pros by adjusting your stance, distance and ball spin. “The simple drag and swipe interface allows you to pick up and play the game quickly, or alternatively for the more serious bowlers we have included additional features to allow the ball to be positioned and the shot shaped as required,” reads the description.

2. Samorost 3+

Samorost 3+ is based on the award-winning Samorost series of adventure games with puzzle components from Amanita Design. Its unique artwork style lends itself perfectly to nine alien worlds “teeming with colorful challenges, creatures and surprises to discover.” Like in the previous installments, you are once again cast as a funny space gnome who uses his magic flute to travel across the stars.

3. Subway Surfers Tag

Subway Surfers Tag is an Apple Arcade-exclusive remix of the existing Subway Surfers game from developer Sybo Games. In this single-player remix of the original, you use touch controls to skate across a multitude of interactive city locations such as over the retired trains and tracks in a railyard, in a park after dark, at the cargo docks, in the mysterious underground and more. Along the way, you must avoid Guard and his minions.

4. HEROish

HEROish is another Apple Arcade exclusive for July. This head-to-head tower defense multiplayer game from developer Sunblink lets you play as one of six epic heroes. These characters can summon troops, cast spells and attack enemy towers. You can choose between 1v1 and 2v2 competitive matches, as well as build custom decks and upgrade cards. There’s also a single-player offering where you engage in three campaigns featuring hand-crafted environments, musical scores and “campy storytelling.”

5. Kingdom Rush Vengeance TD+

Kingdom Rush Vengeance TD+ from developer Ironhide lets you play the villain and battle six kings. Along the way, as you progress through the game, you’ll be earning new heroes, unlocking more powerful towers and much more. This near-endless tower defense game also features boss fights and what the developer describes as “hours and hours of gameplay.”

How to get Apple Arcade for free

Apple Arcade gives you access to a growing library of more than 200 titles across your iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. All games are free of ads and contain no in-app purchases. Apple Arcade costs $5/month after a free trial. You get three months of Apple Arcade for free when buying a new iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV.

Apple Arcade is not a game-streaming service—titles download and run locally on your device. Many Apple Arcade titles support game controllers. And with iOS 16’s expanded controller support beyond Sony and Microsoft controllers, you’ll be able to play games with Nintendo’s Joy-Con and Switch Pro.
