Apple has revealed which games will be added to its Arcade service in 2024.
The latest titles available on Apple Arcade for January 2024 are Tamagotchi Adventure Kingdom, Cornsweeper and MobilityWare’s Blackjack. All three titles were added to Arcade on January 4.
Among them, Tamagotchi Adventure Kingdom is a new game from Bandai Namco. It is an open world adventure game set on the planet Tamagotchi, similar to Hello Kitty Island Adventure. In this role-playing game, players can explore, meet familiar characters and build their own living space. The goal is to recreate and build the kingdom with the hero Mametchi after a disaster caused the kingdom to perish. The game allows you to explore and experience the vast world, challenging yourself with many different types of missions.
Cornsweeper was originally announced for Apple Arcade last April, but the developer later delayed the game’s release date. It won’t be until early 2024 that the game will be complete and available to players. According to Apple, the game is inspired by Jamaica and localized according to a locality called Patois. The game has a strong improvement in eye-catching images compared to the initial introduction.
The last game is Blackjack, brought to the mobile platform by Mobilityware after inheriting and distilling features from its predecessor. This is a classic card game with some additional changes, including leaderboards and many in-game locations changed to suit mobile players as well as a more extensive feature system that allows players to open Lock new missions in the game.
According to the rules, at the blackjack table, the dealer faces 5-9 playing positions from behind a semi-circular table. Each deck has 52 cards mixed together. Players start each game by placing bets on the betting box in each position. Depending on the mode, you will see up to 3 players in each predetermined position. The person with the bet in front of the betting box will control that position. A player can bet on as many betting boxes as desired at a table but cannot play at multiple tables at the same time. After January 4, Apple will introduce many other new games that will be available on its service.
