Basically, the players are none other than designing the roads so that the traffic is always smooth. In the beginning, it is easy, but then you will understand that decent work requires to manage them.

ChuChu Rocket! Universe

For one or up to four players, with this striking title, the game falls into the category of puzzles. You have to get out of the different poses helped by arrows with which you will indicate the movements to escape. Don’t be fooled by its colorful aesthetics because it’s not easy when the number of arrows and obstacles on each planet starts to decrease.

The Latest Games Inside

The new games are ‘Beyond Blue’ and ‘A Fold Apart’, two titles that can be enjoyed from any Mac and Apple TV compatible with Arcade, with the iPad or from the iPhone. Both games are completely free for subscribers of the service and are now available to start playing.

And the other novelty in Apple Arcade is ‘A Fold Apart.’ It is a more casual puzzle game that can offer us several hours of entertainment.
