Another month has come to a close, so it's time to look back at all of the best new games that arrived in October. We’re highlighting some great Apple Arcade additions, a brutally difficult real-time tactics game, and more.
Can You Escape?
You wake up trapped alone in a hidden underground complex. There is another survivor, Amber, but she is trapped on the other side of a locked doorway. The only communication is with a pair of AR smart glasses. But as you and Amber try to find a way to escape, a sinister truth is exposed. Many of the puzzles are solved using the unique 3D-printing gameplay mechanic.
A Unique Adventure
Combining a card game and point-and-click adventure, you’ll explore the land and meet different characters. You’ll try to solve their different issues. Each object you find is turned into a card you can play. There is no need to follow a set path and you can travel and explore. The hand-drawn animations and original music help add to the appeal. There are 45 different achievements in the game, so you'll definitely want to play more than once.
Smash and Clobber
In the darkly funny action RPG Yaga the Roleplaying Folktale, gamers will take the role of Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith with incredibly bad luck. You’ll bludgeon ancient monsters of Slavic folklore and Pagan beliefs. The game offers multiple endings and different ways to solving encounters.
