The surprise release of Necrobarista might have been the headline-grabbing announcement for Apple Arcade this week, but did you know that several of the service's older games also received updates? If you didn't, here's a handy rundown of everything else new to Apple Arcade.


The super-stylish EarthNight, which you should know is set in a hand-painted dragon apocalypse, was updated with a costume shelf featuring 45 unlockable outfits. Now you can easily customise your character, making them look cooler than ever as they run and jump through the game's striking world.

Lifeslide now boasts a zen mode for those looking to fly paper planes without having to fret over timers. You can just sit back, chill out, and enjoy some lovely tunes. On the flip side, the update also introduces four new adventures and worlds to work through, which should provide a bit more of a challenge.

World Laces

World Laces, if you happened to miss it at launch, is a friendly word puzzler from developer Minimega. Its latest update adds 200 new puzzles to solve, with each presenting you with an image and a set of jumbled letters that you'll use to spell associated words.

Super Impossible Road

Super Impossible Road was one of my favourite early Apple Arcade games. Your goal is to race giant orbs through space on extremely precarious tracks. It's all about taking risks and finding ways to cheat your way to victory. Friday's update adds a player rank system where you'll earn XP to level up and gradually unlock badges. There's also a new track location to test out.

Super Mega Mini Party

Super Mega Mini Party has now added new PvP and co-op mini-games to enjoy. There are also now tokens that will appear in-game throughout the day. These allow you to unlock new pets that will then stay by your side when you're out and about.

If you're yet to try Apple Arcade, several of its recent games have been especially strong. Amanita Design's Creaks and Revolution Software's Beyond a Steel Sky are absolutely worth playing, and while I haven't yet given Necrobarista a go, it looks incredibly stylish and interesting.
