Let's get on with it!
This Apple Arcade game doesn't really need anything else to sell it to players - you'll step into the paws of a cat in a kimono, and you'll stroll through a Japanese festival with your equally kimono-clad kitty companion while tapping on pop-ups at the same time. It's simple, charming, and insanely cute - because cats in kimonos.
The core gameplay loop tasks you with offering your companion items they're wishing for. You can even give them piggyback rides or offer ice cream to crying kiddos, as well as participate in festival mini-games to earn coins and spruce up your village.

This visually stunning narrative-focused puzzle game challenges you to solve puzzles by drawing lines as you uncover more of the story along the way. The masterfully crafted worlds on each level offer a minimalist vibe that tells a story entirely without words - you'll have to solve the puzzles to help the characters and reveal the narrative piece by piece.
The game also features a lovely background score that adds to the relaxing nature of the game. Plus, if you're eagle-eyed enough to discover the secret fireflies littered across the levels, you can score special collectables that you can add to your gallery.
Stuffo the Puzzle Bot
The title alone tells you what your main goal is in this straightforward puzzle game - you're the last remaining puzzle bot in the world, and you'll have to do everything in your power to solve every single brainteaser that comes your way. Why the world you're in is filled with puzzles isn't really the point here - at its core, the game is a no-frills puzzle game that offers bite-sized challenges for you as you find your way to the exit on every level.
The game features 65 levels at the moment (with more to come), along with some low-key beats to help you focus your brain cells (or mechanical circuits) across a pixel-art world.
Doctor Who: Lost in Time
East Side Games Studio's idle game thrusts players into the popular world of Doctor Who, all while adding a special twist in the form of its quirky animated visuals. This same style is something players might come to expect from the studio behind titles like The Office: Somehow We Manage, Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile, and Archer: Danger Phone Idle Game.
You'll have to collect energy and journey through time and space across fan-fave locations in the sci-fi IP. You'll also encounter familiar characters and explore a new storyline, all while collecting offline rewards as well.
Uncharted Waters Origin
Boasting a realistic open world that players can sail across to do battle in, this highly anticipated title commemorates the epic 30th anniversary of the popular Uncharted Waters franchise.
The game lets players step into the 16th century and experience historically accurate environments, weather conditions, landmarks and historical figures. There are 200 ports and 60 villages to discover, as well as an in-depth trade system to tinker around with across high-quality 3D graphics.
