One of Apple Arcade's most frequently updated titles has received yet another this week. Capybara's excellent Grindstone now has a new game variant called Daily Grind Mode: The Quick Grind. This gives players 10 turns and a random set of gear to try and place as high as possible on the leaderboard.

Elsewhere, there are 20 new levels to slice and dice your way through found in two added cave areas alongside two gold item blueprints to unlock and craft. There is also two quality of life changes including a fast-travel map scroll to zip around the world quicker and you'll now be able to refill health and repair gear faster from the backpack.
