Developer Walaber’s JellyCar series was one that went on to define the earlier era of mobile gaming, offering up fun physics-based silliness that played perfectly on a touchscreen. With 3 entries released over the course of the first few years of the App Store’s life, it has now been well over a decade since the last JellyCar game was released. That drought ended this week however with the arrival of JellyCar Worlds on Apple Arcade, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. This is sort of like the ultimate ultimate culmination of what a JellyCar game can be, with tons of levels to drive through, multiple goals to complete, tons of secrets to find, crazy fun customization options, and so much more. Below you can find the infinitely charming 30-second launch trailer for JellyCar Worlds, and just below that is a 4-minute overview video from Walaber that is well worth watching to understand the full scope of what’s on offer here.
As usual, alongside this new release comes a bunch of updates to existing Apple Arcade titles. We detailed the big Japan Tour expansion for Horizon Chase 2 yesterday, but strangely the actual update hasn’t shown up for me quite yet, so keep an eye out for it. The other big update this week is for Sneaky Sasquatch which adds in new story content that sees our furry friend running for mayor. Solitaire Stories receives the new Too Many Cooks chapter about an aspiring chef’s family visiting for the holidays. SongPop Party now features a chat system where you can interact with other players, and there are new Christmas and New Year’s themed playlists to check out. Finally, a couple of “Plus" games get updated with Bloons TD 6+ and Fruit Ninja Classic+ both getting holiday content. Oh! I almost forgot that the adorable stitch. has gotten 7 all new hoops. Go out there and enjoy all this latest Apple Arcade goodness for yourself right now.
