Announced in September, Apple Arcade offers unlimited access to over a hundred games for a monthly price of $5. A subscription can be shared by family members, making it a great deal for anyone who enjoys mobile gaming. Subscribers can also access the service on iPhone, iPad, and tvOS.

The biggest draw of Apple Arcade is the games found in Apple Arcade don’t feature in-app purchases or advertising, which has become a major point of discussion in free-to-play titles. So far, people are really enjoying Apple Arcade, with many praising the variety and quality of the service’s games.
