Apple has also added two new games to the Coming Soon section on Apple Arcade today — Arcade Originals game Super Leap Day from Nitrome Limited, and App Store Greats title Super Stickman Golf 3 from Noodlecake, which will automatically grant Apple Arcade subscribers access to all premium features and content previously locked.
So, what is Ultimate Rivals: The Court? Well, Players will create powerhouse squads consisting of their favourite pros to compete with their friends and family in 3-on-3 games with tons of above-the-rim acrobatics. There are a ton of different athletes to choose from and it comes with different modes to help mix up the gameplay as well.
Super Leap Day is a one-button platform game with a new level to play every single day. In the game, there is a new King on the Throne and he has created some of the most devious challenges yet for the unwitting contestants. The game does look like it could be a bit of fun.
There are a few recent updates to a number of games on Apple Arcade as well. Namely, Spire Blast, which has an update that introduces a new Skylands biome containing new, challenging levels with bigger bonuses to win and permanent upgrades to earn. LEGO Brawls will allow users to jump into an all-new level, game mode and season based on classic LEGO sets. Players face off for the first time in Battle Royale-style “every-minifig-for- themselves” matches. Cozy Grove’s update comes with new activities and events that offer players tons of new decorations and clothing. And finally, Stellar Commanders’ update launches two new game modes: Friends Assembly & Explorers Path, two new planets as part of the campaign, and six new units as friends play & campaign rewards.
