Apple Arcade weekly update: Splitter Critters, Dandara: Trials of Fear, Galaga Wars and more

It looks like another huge week for Apple Arcade, with two games arriving this Friday. On top of that, we've got news about two App Store Greats that will release on the subscription service, alongside the usual update round-up.

Coming soon

Dandara: Trials of Fear

Raw Fury's 2D critically-acclaimed 2D Metroidvania is heading for Apple Arcade. The game follows the titular Dandara as she sets off on an adventure to save the world of Salt. She will leap across floors, walls, and ceilings while finding upgrades dotted across the game world. It's a game that we really enjoyed here at Pocket Gamer when it first launched in 2018.

Splitter Critters

Next up, RAC7 is bringing Splitter Critters to Apple Arcade soon. The game initially launched in 2017 and tasked players with exploring a variety of colourful planets. Here, they solved various puzzles by splitting the world by swiping with their fingers to help guide the critters back to their spaceship.

Arriving Friday

Kingdom Rush Frontiers TD

The second instalment in the popular Kingdom Rush series arrives this Friday. If you're unfamiliar, it sees players constructing towers and deploying heroes to protect their kingdom from numerous beasties such as dragons, man-eating plants, and unsavoury creatures from the underworld.

Galaga Wars

Bandai Namco's Galaga Wars brings some nostalgia to Apple Arcade this week. It promises simple touch screen controls that allow players to experience the thrill of gunning down seemingly endless waves of aliens with numerous lasers and missiles.


Spire Blast

Spire Blast's latest update introduces a new world called Brickbeard's Bay which contains 60 new levels that introduce new game mechanics.

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure

Players can now see how they fare against other players with the addition of weekly Temple Tournaments.


The latest update for SP!NG includes 18 one chance levels and a brand new theme.

LEGO Brawls

Finally, in LEGO Brawls, Monkie Kid and his team are now in the game. That means players can collect trophies to earn new Monkie Kid content.

The above games are either available now over on Apple Arcade or will be soon. It is a subscription service that costs $4.99 per month. For more information on other games available in its extensive library, check out our dedicated hub page.
