Over the last year, Apple Arcade has been finding its footing in the mobile gaming world. In April, the $5-a-month gaming subscription service also made a splash last month when itin one day, as well as two highly anticipated exclusives: from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, and Wonderbox: The Adventure Maker from Aquiris.
Also among the new releases was, one of the biggest titles to hit the service to date, along with well-loved games like Monument Valley, Fruit Ninja and The Oregon Trail. After the massive haul, Apple Arcade now has over and there are still more to come.
Even though there are so many new titles to check out on the service, we’re still waiting on a few games teased at launch like Proxi, from The Sims creator Will Wright, and Artful Escape from Annapurna Interactive.
Here’s every game we’re looking forward to playing on Apple Arcade.
The Artful Escape

Enter the Construct
Developer: Directive Games
Details have been thin on the ground about Enter the Construct, except that it was expected to be available at Apple Arcade’s launch. At that time, the images and videos showed the game as a first-person sci-fi shooter. Since then, there has been little to no information about Enter the Construct, so it’s possible it’s taken on a new name or has been canceled. Directive Games didn’t respond to a request for comment, but we’ll update if we hear anything.
