I’m sure that many rode an Internet search to this post hoping to find an answer as to where exactly MouseBot’s easter egg actually is. To those I say: Welcome to the site. And sorry.
Vector Unit’s MouseBot is a fun little throwback to 3D platform games of the mid- to late-’90s, and you can check out ATVG’s review right here.
Stashing a hidden Easter egg in a game by depicting it as an actual Easter egg is a nice little twist by the studio.
9. GRID Autosport to Apple TV? Feral Interactive are “Looking Into” It.
We sure hope Feral Interactive are giving serious thought to bringing GRID Autosport to Apple TV, as giving Real Racing 3 some competition on the platform would surely be good for everyone.
Hopefully the studio takes heed of the fact that this piece has found its way into this list, which clearly shows that ATVG is not the only mind waiting for this to happen.
8. 5 More Upcoming Apple TV Games We’re Excited About
It wasn’t surprising to see this in the top ten. As gamers we’re always trying to stand on our tippy-toes, stretching to get a peak over the horizon to see what sort of gaming goodness we can look forward to.
There are some nice looking titles in this collection, including thatgamecompany’s follow-up to Journey – Sky – and we look forward to playing and writing more about them in 2018.
7. Review: Space Marshals 2 – If The Hat Fits, Wear It
With Space Marshals 2, developer Pixelbite brought a high quality twin-stick shooter to the Apple TV catalogue.
The release in March this year brought the title to this platform from iOS, and also marked the release of four bonus missions which were added to the original game for free. The port also included universal compatibility, meaning one purchase nets consumers the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV versions, with your game save also following you between devices, Nintendo Switch-style.
6. The Best Apple TV Games: Year One
An obvious choice for clicks.
ATVG started back in December 2016, sneaking this article out in time for Christmas. ATVG wanted to give early readers finding their way to the site some help finding quality games to play after unwrapping their new toy.
The Apple TV’s App Store is packed full of ports of smaller iOS auto-runners and puzzle games, and while there are some quality entries in those genres that we’ve spent time writing about, at ATVG we tend to focus more on traditional video games: Shooters, RPGs, adventures, platform games, racers, and so on.
This round up of the platform’s first year of life, from late 2015 to Christmas 2016, is still a great place to start if you’re new to the device, and the new list wrapping up 2017 will be posted sometime between now and this coming Christmas. Which is very soon.
Better get cracking.
5. Is There a Tekken or Street Fighter Style Game on Apple TV?
While Gods of Rome from Gameloft is a very simplified version of the 2D fighters such as those mentioned in the headline, it certainly has merit.
It’s strengths are the upgradeable characters, and the fun progression system to unlocking content, making it feel like a true single player campaign guiding players through the game.
On the downside is the free-to-play minefield of multiple currencies that Gods of Rome brings to the table. Free-to-play can be handled well, but Gods of Rome seems unnecessarily complex in this regard.
The fact that you guys are finding your way to the site via this article is an indication that the genre is begging for a high quality entry on the Apple TV platform.
Any developers reading this?
4. PS4 and Xbox One Games You Can Play on Apple TV 4K with a Controller
As mentioned in item number six on this list, ATVG focuses mostly on the traditional video game genres likely to be found on other consoles. The hardware is capable of good things, especially the recently released fifth-generation Apple TV 4K, which added more power under the hood.
Even before that though, it was a pleasant surprise to see just how many titles were appearing in the Apple TV App Store that had been previous PlayStation Plus alumni. We even posted an article about it.
This list is one of the best places to start if you’re looking for true console titles for your Apple TV and compatible controller, although a bunch more have been released since this article went to site.
3. Will Super Mario Run Ever Come to Apple TV?
When Hell freezes over is the short answer.
While people used to say the same thing before Mario came to mobiles, at least that move made a certain amount of sense for Nintendo. Being able to put the world’s most famous plumber in our pockets was Nintendo’s hopeful gateway to selling more Switches. But bringing Mario to another modern gaming console would surely just dilute that marketing strategy.
The fact that this found its way to spot number three on this list is an indication that it’s a desire shared by many.
Live in hope, Apple TV gamers.
2. 6 Upcoming Apple TV Games We’re Excited About
The older of ATVG’s two upcoming games lists, this one is obviously higher in clicks due to longevity.
It’s yet another indication that there are gamers out there armed and ready with an Apple TV and compatible controller, punching out searches into their browser, hoping to find some goodness.
And there is goodness to be had, with more on the way. A bunch of the titles in this half-dozen have since released, and the relevant sections in the story have been updated to that effect.
Can’t wait for these upcoming lists to ripen and bear fruit.
1. How to Find Space Marshals 2’s Most Hidden Token
How-to lists, walkthroughs, and tips articles are always going to be big hitters on gaming sites, and obviously players trying to find the item talked about in this post are coming to ATVG regardless of platform.
An expansion pack to Space Marshals 2 adding 10 more missions released not long ago – the Ava Storyline – and ATVG reviewed it also. The DLC was even more recently followed by a free bonus mission. So those jumping in now as new buyers will have access to a whole lot of Space Marshals 2.
It’s great to see that so many are enjoying Space Marshals 2, and while it would be great to see developer Pixelbite turn its talents towards a completely new product, I wouldn’t mind betting that one day there might be a Space Marshals 3 to write about.
In the meantime, if you’re searching for that elusive COR-V token, well…
