The second Apple Arcade game for August 2022 has just gone live in the form of My Talking Tom+ (), an App Store Great. As an App Store Great in Apple Arcade, My Talking Tom+ will not have any in app purchases. This is one of the more popular free to play games, so I understand that it is a big deal in including it in Apple Arcade with no in app purchases, but it is one of the less interesting additions to the service in recent weeks given it is likely a game most people have experienced already. Thankfully, there are some great updates to a few games on the service also out now. Zen Pinball Party brings in Star Wars: Pinball today with two tables. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and The Clone Wars join Zen Pinball Party with version 1.8.0.
Crossy Road Castle 8.0 is out today bringing in Snowpeak Palace as a new tower in game. Check out a teaser for it here. The final notable update of the week is Zookeeper World 3.0.0 bringing in 10 new puzzle stages with more coming on August 21st. Rabbit Rope Solitaire is a new minigame added today with new items featured in Ticket Exchange. What The Golf? was updated earlier this week to celebrate world cat day as well. Check out our forum threads for My Talking Tom+ here, Zen Pinball Party here, Crossy Road Castle here, and Zookeeper World here. Head over to our dedicated Apple Arcade forum for discussion on the service and every game included here. If you’ve not kept up with the service, Apple confirmed what happens to games when they will be removed. What do you think of the new additions so far this month?
