Grindstone, one of the most popular games on Apple Arcade, has just received a major update that adds 15 new levels to work your way through, a challenging boss to take down, and more.
If you missed this one at launch, it's a smart, tight puzzler that tasks you with cleaving your way through hordes of monsters in the most efficient, stylish way possible. Along the way, you'll acquire fresh loot, craft powerful new gear, and occasionally fight the odd boss.
The vanilla version was already fairly content-packed, but this latest update takes it to the next level. There's a new enemy that gobbles up smaller foes and then morphs into their colour. If you've played the game, you'll know how tricky these guys could prove to be.
The new levels are built to test the mettle of even the most battle-hardened players, throwing lots of new traps your way. They're full of treasure chests to find, though, so the rewards should be well worth the effort.
Some of the latest items up for grabs include the Stonebreaker Arrow, which breaks larger grindstones into smaller ones, and the Ok Boomerang, which is a crooked sword that you can throw through a chain of enemies. Last, but by no means least, we have the Throwin' Bombs. These give you an explosive attack that you might remember being used by the game's bosses.
Grindstone is an easy recommendation for just about anyone, though you'll of course need an active Apple Arcade subscription to play. It's available for download now from over on the App Store.
