“The joy of rolling is back!” the developers said about their new marble-filled game that’s now part of Apple Arcade. “Marble It Up: Mayhem! is the newest chapter in marble platforming - fresh from the minds behind Marble It Up! and Marble Blast. World-class level design, buttery-smooth controls, and brand-new multiplayer - welcome to the beginning of the best marble experience yet!”
This next mobile game called Takeshi and Hiroshi has a trailer you can view on its Apple Arcade page while the video above shows some gameplay through the first chapter.
“Takeshi and Hiroshi combines the two worlds of puppet animation and Role Playing Game,” a preview of the game reads.” It tells the story of two brothers and their daily life. The 14-year-old Takeshi, a game designer to-be, is creating a game for his weak little brother Hiroshi who always wants to play the next chapter of the game as soon as possible. As the game is still in the making, Takeshi has to improvise and secretly plays some of the monster roles himself.”
"Discolored is a strange and surreal puzzle adventure, taking place over a single desolate location,” a description of the game reads. “Your mission: restore the color to this once-vibrant world. What caused the colors to disappear? How could they be brought back? As you explore, you’ll solve an array of inventive puzzles and uncover a selection of clues – leading you to discover the deeper secrets of this strange place at the end of an abandoned highway.”
“This summer, you and your best friends are heading out on a quest,” the Apple Arcade description of Guildlings reads. “You’ll climb through dark tunnels to reach mystical mountain temples. You’ll match wits with goblins, ghosts, and sentient coffeemakers. You might even save the world from tearing itself apart. All you need to get this quest started? A magical phone. Be sure to read the fine print.”
