The Apple Arcade September lineup has been revealed, and some of the names that have been confirmed are Shovel Knight Dig, Horizon Chase 2, GRIS+, Garden Tails: Match and Grow, Farmside, and possibly the most unusual title of all, a trivia game called Hanx 101 Curiosities none other than actor Tom Hanks.
People familiar with Apple Arcade will know that the games available generally don’t consist of big, well-known names – that’s not the point of the service. Apple Arcade is a platform where you can try some of the most unknown games that are released, giving these titles a little more love than they originally received; We all need a little more love, you know.
The biggest name on the list is shovel Knight Digging, which was released in 2019 and is jointly developed by Yacht Club Games and Nitrome. Players control Shovel Knight, who embarks on a tunneling expedition in search of the notorious Drill Knight who has stolen all of his treasure. This game was Yacht Club Games’ flagship game, with the company explaining that “levels were meticulously designed and then put back together using special techniques for endless replayability.”
One of the other heavy hitters on this Apple Arcade list is horizon Chase 2, which is a brand new release and the sequel to the very nice Horizon Chase Turbo. Coming from the Brazilian studio Aquiris, this is the latest entry in the racing series and aims to be a fast-paced and easily accessible classic arcade racing game. It offers a unique art style aesthetic, a funky soundtrack, and an online multiplayer mode that can be used for all of its game modes. Check out the latest trailer for the game below to get an idea of what to expect.
Here’s the interesting one though, the game that’s been on your mind ever since we mentioned it above: Curiosities of Hanx 101. This game was created by the Oscar-winning actor so that he could share his love and passion for trivia, which is a testament to the personality of the actor and only adds to his likeability. Hanx 101 Curiosities is developed by BlueLine Studios and will be released on September 2. The game challenged players to beat their own scores or challenge another competitor in a variety of quiz categories and game modes.
