Castlevania: Grimoire and Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure Out Now on Apple Arcade

Over the weekend, two new games hit Apple Arcade. There’s a hack-and-slash ARPG based on a classic franchise and a match-stuff puzzler built around a legendary mobile title. And both of them are pretty good.

First up we’ve got Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls. It’s a side-scrolling action adventure game that sees you slicing up a variety of different horrors, collecting new characters and weapons and having a lovely, if slightly gloomy old time.

You can click here to download Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls from the App Store. It doesn’t quite manage to live up to the awesome games that came before it, but it’s still entertaining enough to make it worth picking up.

The second new release comes in the shape of Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure. Unlike the other games in the Temple Run series, this one isn’t an auto-runner where you’re stealing stuff from an angry monkey. Instead you’re matching gems to clear them from a board and earn stars.

All told, the game is a pretty standard matching puzzler. It doesn’t have many fresh ideas, but it’s entertaining enough if you’re looking for a well put together gem-swiping experience. Click here and you can download Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure from the App Store.
