Earlier this month, Apple changed how Apple Arcade’s schedule is revealed by giving us a list of the four new releases for the month in advance. I thought the upcoming updates listed in that feature were too few given how many games on the service get updated. This week, there were a few more games updated in addition to the advertised Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls update. Before getting to the updates, Ninja Kiwi Games’ Bloons TD 6+ () has joined Apple Arcade as an App Store Great. Bloons TD 6+ is one of the most popular tower defense games out there, and it has arrived with all the updates including 4 player co-op and more on Apple Arcade. Check it out here on the App Store. Watch the Bloons TD 6 trailer below:
Alongside Bloons TD 6+, this week saw a few notable updates on the service. Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls has added in a new story with up to 14 login bonuses for its Valentine event. The seventh grimoire includes new story content, equipment, balance changes, and more. Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls also has controller improvements, new precious gems, and a wealth of bugs fixed with today’s 1.3.0 update. Radiangames’ Speed Demons added four new vehicle types to the final chapter, more than 25 new races, two new songs, high frame rate support, and more today in its first update in more than half a year. Devolver Digital’s Game of Thrones: A Tale of Crows hit version 3.0.0 with the Red Priestess update adding in the Red Temple, three new legends, more than 700 new unique encounters, and more.
Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure was updated with 60 new puzzles, improved control, support for the Siri Remote, and more this week. The final notable update of the week on Apple Arcade is MasterChef: Let’s Cook! adding in a new grill minigame, recipes, gear, weekly events, and a Valentine event with Episode 11. Check out our forum threads for the original Bloons TD 6 here, Bloons TD 6+ here, Speed Demons here, Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls here, MasterChef: Let’s Cook! here, and Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure here.
