For the past few months, Apple Arcade has been pretty inconsistent compared to the previous service. Instead of getting a new game with some updates every week, we now either get a new game or an App Store Great with some changes and sometimes just updates brought into service. The new additions to the service also require more variety as it feels like there is too much pressure to introduce reused free games or just games that exist to keep people playing instead of offering a unique experience We saw the launch year in Apple Arcade. For this week, another App Store Great joins the service in the form of Crossy Road + () from hipster whale. You’ve probably played the original before, but if you haven’t, Crossy Road + great fun trying to cross the street with different characters. Crossy Road + is the second Apple Arcade release from Hipster Whale. Check it out here at Apple Arcade. After the big one Dark sword and Dear Reader Updates from a few days ago, eight more games were updated through the service today.
