Following Apple’s amazing start for Apple Arcade in 2023 with the announcement for this month, the second game of the year has arrived today. BorderLeap who brought us the excellent Patterned have released the puzzler Illustrated () on the service. Illustrated has you solving puzzles based on many famous artists in two modes. Illustrated has no fail states and seems like a lovely addition to the more-relaxing games on Apple Arcade. I enjoyed Patterned a lot and will be checking out all the potential updates coming to Illustrated with new art. Check it out here on Apple Arcade. Watch the trailer for Illustrated below:
Three games have gotten notable updates today. Grindstone gets its first update in about a month bringing in new gear, the Cosmic Darkside expanding with more enemies, a Hat Stand, and more. Nitrome’s Super Leap Day has been updated to bring in the Windy Skies theme with parachutes, wind funnels, Sun Monsters, and more. The final update of the week is for the recently-released Episode XOXO bringing in the new Game of Hearts story chapter. With the updates done, check out our forum threads for Episode XOXO here, Illustrated here, Grindstone here, and Super Leap Day here. For all Apple Arcade related things, check out our dedicated Apple Arcade forum for discussion on the service and every game included here. What do you think of the state of Apple Arcade right now?
