Update: Since posting this story Apple has since brought the release of iPadOS forward one week from September 30 to the 24th. For The Apple TV Gaming Blog however, September 30 is still where the big cheese is at. Read on, folks.

Original Story: Putting together this massive list of games coming to the Apple Arcade service was a fascinating exercise, as I gained a detailed look at the sheer breadth of the experiences that will be on offer.

Some of the games were harder to research than others, and with many there isn’t much information available out in the wild yet, with developers still sitting on some surprises.

Overnight however, more and more information and trailers trickled out, and I’ll continue to update yesterday’s list as more information comes to hand. Already I’ve added four more games – EarthNight, Lifeslide, Mosaic, and What The Golf? – and a couple of trailers. A new video for The Bradwell Conspiracy appeared following a Twitch stream from the studio, and also one for Exit The Gungeon (thanks to Screen Times for the heads-up on that one).

Apple has also been busy overnight, releasing a new 100 second video which squeezes an absolute bucketload of short gameplay snippets from upcoming Apple Arcade titles. It’s definitely worth a look, as it gives some good insight into to a few games for which no gameplay footage had yet been shown, notably Hot Lava and Sonic Racing.

We first posted about Moon Raider back in March, and thought it’s high time we checked back in to bring word on its progress. The studio behind the upcoming pixel art action platformer – Retro Phone Games – has been very open on the game’s progress in recent months, dropping heaps of videos that reveal plenty of interesting aspects of the game.

Mash the page 2 button below, and you’ll find a collection of half a dozen bite-size chunks of gameplay that show a very promising work in progress.

Spoiler Alert: Wanna See the Whole First Mission in Quantum Revenge?

It must be hard for developers to decide where to draw that line: how much of a game to reveal before release?

At what point are you no longer creating interest and starting to spoil the joy of discovery? There’s really no definitive answer to this conundrum, and ultimately it’s up to players to decide whether or not to accept a studio’s invitation to peak behind the curtain.

In this case the role of the curtain will be played by the page 2 button below. Go ahead and mash it if you’d like to see the whole of the first mission as revealed by studio Realtech VR, including its boss fight.

If you’d prefer to go into Quantum Revenge completely cold, well, we understand.

Isn’t free will a beautiful thing?
