    Gonna download 3 games from Apple Arcade, starting with Chu Chu Rocket Universe and Monomals and Lifelike, and when I finish one of them I get a new one ha ha, otherwise it’s too much for me too handle, getting 20 games at once is no fun for me and you start rushing through games and all sorts, so 3 at a time.

    I'm pretty sure you'll only be able to play on iPad when iPadOS gets released (which I think is Sept 30th). I suspect you might be able to play if you're on a beta version (you can sign up for the public beta right now and install ipadOS but the Arcade tab just says 'coming soon')

    I’m in the same boat as you I have to wait but pretty sure the wait will be worth it especially for some of these very cool games included in Apple Arcade

    Some websites say IOS 13 will also be for Ipad and that IpadOS will overwrite it on 30 September so fingers crossed still he he, it would be a real bummer if I couldn’t play Apple Arcade on the 19th of September.

    I’m on the public beta of Ipad OS and I can confirm arcade is working for me right now... you can download the beta on apples website (beta.apple.com I think)

    Hey Roger, check out the Enchanted World when you get a chance I think it’s right up your alley. So far probably a bit easy for you but pretty beautiful and I’m sure it’ll get harder.

    Is iOS 13 required for Apple Arcade? Didn't find this information anywhere. And if so, does that mean an older devices like iPad Air 1st gen won't be supported?

    I’m not sure so can’t say but hopefully someone will know. But when I installed the iOS 13 beta an Apple Arcade tab appeared in the App Store.

    I found this on techcrunch in an article about Apple Arcade being already available for iOS13 beta users:

    "Apple Arcade requires iOS 13, tvOS 13 or macOS Catalina, which means that you won’t be able to access the service before updating to the new major versions of the operating systems. The final version of iOS 13 is set to launch on Thursday on the iPhone."

    That's a bummer! I was looking forward to it. :(

    There are so many great games on Arcade ste86uk and Enchanted World is one of them, gonna play that game for sure.

    I’m very happy also to see the follow up of Mini Metro, called Mini Motorways, that’s the first game I’m gonna play ha ha.

    And Dodo Peak looks great.

    Is Chu Chu Rocket Universe a launch game, it’s not listed on TA.

    I like the small indie games the most, don’t need triple A games.

    Oo thanks for the heads up on mini motorways. I can’t find Chu Chu Rocket Universe but maybe it could be added before it goes live officially?

    Spaceland is pretty good too so far.

    Edit: I just lost 30 minutes to Oceanhorn and I definitely want to play more. It looks as great as it does on all the videos and just reminds me of Oceanhorn and BOTW. Although the problem there is rather than completing my quest I spent the whole 30 minutes exploring and finding hidden things.

    My one gripe so far is you get challenges but no tutorial that I can see I have no idea how to sprint or dodge roll but maybe if I proceed with this first quest I’ll find out.

    edit: anyone know how to save your game? Seems rerunning to title screen doesn’t and that it only has set points where it saves and you don’t know when that is other than when it pops up.

    Currently, I’m spending time on WHAT THE GOLF the most lol. I can see why Apple Arcade support TA, it’s really a great match.
