The environment is built upon a futuristic neon vibe and a killer set of indie-pop soundtracks that dynamically change rhythm based on the mood of levels. You also hear the voice of Queen Latifah as the narrator of the story.

Similar to other Apple Arcade games, The game allows you to either use a controller or regular touch input. Combined with the intuitive controls, the gameplay feels responsive and satisfying.

2. What The Golf?

If you think it is your average golf game, then you got it wrong. What The Golf? is a physics-based parody game where the golf course changes in each level, and makes you guess where the goal or what the objective is. It needs you to think outside the box to figure out the levels. You either launch yourself or a freaking house to the goalpost. The levels are absurdly hilarious yet brilliantly executed. You also encounter boss fights. Yep, you heard that right. Boss fights in a golf game.

The pastel color palette and blocky art design suit the silly environment of the game. The music also makes it a pretty relaxing game overall. The game supports both touch and controller input. Controls are very basic too.

What The Golf? is definitely a golf game you should try. There aren’t many levels to play, but it is addicting enough to keep you entertained for hours.

3. Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm

Oceanhorn 2 is an RPG game that sends you to a mythical world called Gaia. As a prequel, the timeline shifts to a thousand years before the events of the previous Oceanhorn game. You play as a young knight, whose objective is to protect Gaia from the Dark Army of Warlock Mesmeroth.

As you progress through the chapters, you meet new allies who are willing to fight at your side against the Dark Army. You explore new regions, solve mysterious puzzles, unlock new weapons and spells to defeat powerful monsters in epic battles.

Oceanhorn 2 offers 15+ hours of gameplay, which is insane for a mobile game. There are also rewarding side quests in between each main mission as well as find collectibles and secrets throughout the world.

It is undoubtedly one of the best single-player action-adventure games available for iOS. It is graphically impressive, contains a huge open-world map, and a story that will keep you hooked for days. 

Oceanhorn takes inspiration from The Legend of Zelda series, which isn’t a bad thing at all. If you like role-playing action games, then put Oceanhorn 2 on your list. You won’t be disappointed.

4. Down in Bermuda

Down in Bermuda is a puzzle game with a focus on exploration. Your objective is to help a pilot stuck on a stranded island for more than three decades.

The colorful and blocky graphics fit the game well. The touch controls work out pretty well, considering that the camera is adjustable. As previously mentioned, the developer (Yak & Co) have confirmed to add more content in the game with future updates.

5. LEGO Brawls
