iOS gaming recap: Oxenfree, Gris, and more deepen Apple Arcade and Netflix Games rivalry

This week, an Apple Arcade developer is switching sides in mobile games as Ustwo Games’ Desta makes its Netflix debut. Then there are two critically acclaimed cult favorites, each on either side of the great tech divide: Oxenfree on Netflix and Gris on Apple Arcade. Oh, and just for fun, there’s also some culinary antics with SpongeBob and his Bikini Bottom buddies. There’s plenty of excitement for iPhone and iPad gaming this week. Let’s get into that, shall we?

Oxenfree opens on Netflix Games

Oxenfree is old news to many at this point, but we’re glad it’s coming back to life, possibly for a whole new audience. It suddenly arrived on Netflix Games on Saturday as part of a barrage of announcements during Netflix’s Tudum fan event.
