Urban Riders tasks you with delivering packages around the city as a tenacious bike messenger - the catch is that you'll have to dodge all the obstacles in your way to survive each new day. Saving the environment is never easy, is it?
The game also lets you collect coins along the way while learning sick tricks you can perform on your bike. Plus, you can also spruce up your ride with different bike parts and even customise the look of your character to deliver packages in style.
This roguelike RPG from the creative mind behind Immortal Rogue and Blast Waves features a charming pixel-art style where players will have to slash their way through hordes of enemies using an incredibly massive weapon. As the title suggests, this mega-blade you'll wield will help you progress through the game and unlock thousands of hero and class combinations to make sure that no two runs are the same.
The game also features simple drag-to-move controls wherein your character will auto-attack for you, as well as a convenient portrait mode that makes hacking through the mutating enemies feel more natural on mobile.
This vibrant runner lets you play as the titular hero as you slide and dodge your way through 50-second levels to score in-game goodies. You can unlock Tiers as you progress through the game, opening up a whole new world of race tracks along with fancy cosmetics you can use to customise your look and give your stats a welcome boost.
The game also feeds your competitive streak with daily duels where you can go head-to-head with your rivals to score Coins and other special prizes.
This Apple Arcade farm sim lets you craft your very own dream farm as you plant and harvest crops, decorate orchards, and raise chickens to fulfil orders from the lovely people in town. You can also use whatever you harvest from your farm to create recipes.
The game features colourful decorations as well to help you prettify your farm with lovely pavements and romantic street lights, along with plenty of customisation options for your avatar to help you express your personality.
