Over the weekend another five games were added to Apple Arcade, giving you even more choices on what to play.

The first game added was Monomals, a hybrid of music and fishing games. You'll need to play as one of three animal DJs and throw out a fishing line, then use that to collect musical instruments and notes that you can use for the beats you make. You can then share your music with friends, who can listen to them while you go fishing. Monomals is exclusive to the Apple Arcade.

 

Next up is The Mosaic, a narrative game about a man who works for the titular company while battling depression and loneliness. The game features many strange situations, with your character watching a butterfly avoid hazards, or imagins himself being shrunk to the size of an ant and needing to avoid being stepped on. We got a chance to check out The Mosaic at E3 and gave it one of our nominees for best of show. It's set to come out on PC and Consoles sometime in 2020.

Star Fetched is the third offering, a 2D sci-fi platformer. You play as a young boy who suddenly finds himself teleported to an alien planet and asked to help with an invasion. Needing to shoot at aliens while finding a way home, the game combines platformer elements with tower defense and RPG. Star Fetched is exclusive to the Apple Arcade.

 

The fourth game added is Super Mega Mini Party, which may look familiar to any fans of the Mario Party series. The game has you playing a bunch of very goofy minigames, from chopping down trees, to being pirates, to dodging narwhals as penguins. You can play the game with up to four friends in online play, in case you need to challenge anyone to minigames. Super Mega Mini Party is an Apple Arcade exclusive.

Finally, you can grab Jumper Jon. A game best described as Minit meets Hollow Knight, you have to solve metroidvania-styled stages while adhering to a 30 second time limit. Along the way, Jon can find coins and buy himself some extra time so he can complete his journey out of Hell. Jumper Jon is an Apple Arcade exclusive.

 

If any of these games interest you, or the many other games released for the service, Apple Arcade is currently available for the price of $4.99 a month.
