Apple Arcade collection of classic games keeps growing

Apple Arcade subscribers can now enjoy The gardens between+, which challenges the player to solve puzzles by manipulating time. It’s a classic title that joins Apple’s gaming service.

In recent weeks, grey+, Gin Rummy Classic+ and Spider Solitaire: Card Game+ also joined Apple Arcade.

Many classic games join Apple Arcade

To increase the number of games in its subscription service, Apple is adding previously released titles and calling them App Store Greats. A “+” is added to the name and the purchase price is $0.

Another difference between the new version and the original version is that all in-app purchases have been removed. Apple Arcade doesn’t allow them. Ditto for ads, loot boxes, and invasive player tracking.

The four new additions join dozens of these classics already available on the service.

Puzzle with the times in The gardens between+

The riddles inside The gardens between+ require players to manipulate time. Cause and effect have become malleable and time flows in all directions.

But the puzzles are only part of the game. It’s a dreamy tale of adventure, friendship and growing up with a meaningful personal story.

The gardens between+ is now available in Apple Arcade for iPhone and iPad. Those who don’t subscribe to Apple’s gaming service can play this offering from Voxel Agents for $4.99.

grey+ is far from a typical game. It is a visual story told in digital form.

“Gris is a hopeful young girl lost in her own world, dealing with a painful experience in her life,” says developer Devlover. “Her journey through grief is manifested in her dress, which grants new abilities to better navigate her faded reality.”

Apple Arcade subscribers can play grey+ now on iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple TV. The game normally costs $4.99.

Also two classic decks of cards

Apple’s gaming service was also recently added Gin Rummy Classic+ and Spider Solitaire: Card Game+, two classic card games for iPad and iPhone. Both are for iPhone and iPad and are manufactured by MobilityWare.
