5 Apple Arcade games you should play before you go


Your favorite Apple Arcade games might not be on the platform forever. Earlier this week, Apple added a new “Leaving Soon” tab in Apple Arcade, listing 15 games that will be leaving the service in the near future. With that, I wanted to recommend a few great games still available to play with the $4.99 monthly subscription.

While none of these games are due to leave Apple Arcade just yet, you should give them a try in case that day comes.

Rayman Mini

This game is great fun and a must have for fans of Rayman or running rigs. Players will race through 48 levels with an ant-sized Rayman as he blasts his way through beautiful landscapes – this game is best played with a Bluetooth controller. If you’re looking for suggestions, check out my controller guide:

Oceanhorn 2 is a Zelda-like RPG that takes you on an adventure set thousands of years ago. Throughout the game, you explore the magical land of Gaia and also use your combat skills to fight difficult bosses. Running at 60fps, the graphics are superb and the controls are easy to learn. The game is on other platforms, however, there is no additional cost if you are already an Apple Arcade subscriber.
