I'm loving it as its all premium games, quite fun checking them all out. There'll also be Gamesclub coming out in a month or so, thats where theyre taken old classics (Which didnt survive the 'app-pocalypse' and werent updated for ios11 i think it was so lots of games were lost. Theyve got the rights to a lot and have got them working for the latest ios. Very tempted to give that a go once thats up and running. Bit like a 'retro ios' Gamesclub

Having recently upgraded my phone (on account of the last one basically dying, between the battery and the hardware being pretty out of date) so I made sure I got a IOS13 compatible phone so I could give the arcade a shot. Seems really nice so far, great range of games and the price is just right. I'll probably jump into them proper this weekend, I'm quite looking forward to giving Capcom's game a try (as always). Plus pad support (big plus).
Also, looks like the weird KOF brawler mobile game is due out at the end of this month, so that's good timing, its basically got every character in the series to get, so it'll at least be worth a try. Likewise, Capcom has a exclusive MMX game coming out at some point soon, so I'll look forward to giving that a try as well (and thankfully that has pad support)

Yeah enjoying it so far for sure. I’ll sign up to it once the free trial ends. Well worth it

Me too, seems like good value. Plus as I have a second PS4 pad I no longer use its perfect for the iPhone. Seems to work fine when paired. Now just to decide which games to try first...

Enjoying the Frogger game. Great graphics and obviously has that old skool gameplay. Quite fun trying lots of new games. All good so far

So happy, just found out Bubble Bobble is on the app store (somehow missed it as its been there a few months)...

https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/bubble-bo ... 1497822213

Free to play. If you check out the devs other games they do loads of arcade shoot em up conversions which are great to try. Still loving my iphone and the games, some great games on Apple Arcade also

I wish there were more games like age of empires available on mobile, anyone got any recommendations? I remember seeing something years ago about it possibly coming to mobile, but I can't see anything on the app store? https://www.firstpost.com/tech/news-ana ... 29945.html

Downloaded Company of Heroes, enjoy playing that. Also X-Com 2 has recently come out, expensive price but its a great conversion with tons of free DLC. Civilisation is also on iOS, another large game

I know not the same but i'm still over the moon games like Baldurs Gate I and II and others and Star Wars Knights of the old Republic is on iOS.

I'm an app horder so i've got loads of famous games and remakes on my phone, over the moon i've got classics like Sonic, GTA, KOTOR, Baldurs Gate and tons of others on my phone. Love it !
