Apple Arcade Multiplayer Games

Apple Arcade Multiplayer Games – Apple Arcade, features some truly unique and innovative multiplayer experiences, that implement different ways to connect and play with others. Today, were going to be having a look at every multiplayer game on offer, and right now its about 24 games. This is as of the 20th November 2019 so do keep that in mind.

More games will come out very soon. Every single game in this list supports an MFi game controller, or PlayStation Dualshock 4 or Xbox One controller. Number one we have Hogwash.

This is Bossa Studios new three vs one multiplayer game. You can play as as either a piggie, or a farmhand. As a piggie, you must run around the map, and try to put mud onto all the farmers important items, like a car, house, signs, etc, and as the farmhand, its your job to spray the piggies with water before they can wreck havoc. You can only connect to random players in multiplayer.

I hope Bossa add a private and split-screen mode in the future. Number two is Cat Quest II. Following the success of the original 2D open-world RPG, Cat Quest II, greatly expands on the first experience. It brings players more spells to work with, weapons to use, a new character switch mechanic and stunning worlds to explore.

But the best new feature is local on-screen co-op. With two bluetooth controllers connected to your Apple device, you can jump into the co-op mode. Plus if youre on a Mac, one player can use the keyboard and the other a controller. Cat Quest II runs at 60 frames across all Apple devices. Number three we have Ballistic Baseball.

Ballistic Baseball is a real-time player vs player baseball game, that shows what its like to be a pitcher and batter. You can go up against other random players online, or create a private game. Gameloft are the developer behind this one, and have made a fairly difficult game. It takes a while to understand, especially how to successfully pull off a batting, once you get the hang of it, its really great and its challenging and its fun. Also Gameloft have updated the game to version 1.06, the brings major improvements for online, AI, and gameplay.

Some notable updates include the following, connecting to people is now much more reliable, CPU batter AI has been improved, user pitch and batting timing has been significantly updated for online and offline matches which was my biggest issue initially, and you have increased stamina for all pitches, and this covers only the very basics of this update. So if you had issues with the game initially, definitely give the game another go. Number four is Hot Lava.

Hot Lava is a 3D first-person parkour game by Klei Entertainment. You and other players can go into levels, where you must get to the end, and avoid the lava below. The multiplayer features drop in-drop out multiplayer. You can use emotes, and customize your character to stand out.

Remember, youll always be connecting to random players. You cant join directly with friends and you cant play in couch co-op. Hot Lava supports 60 frames on Apple TV 4K and Mac, and 30 on iPhone and iPad.

And it supports custom graphics on Mac. Number five we have Sociable Soccer. Apple Arcade has a really good soccer game that has in-depth single-player modes and a fantastic one vs one local multiplayer mode. To obtain access to this local multiplayer mode, all you need to do is connect two bluetooth controllers to your device. Please note, and I hope this makes sense, you can take on other players manager controller teams online but you cant actually play against another online player in real-time.

According to Rogue Games, this feature may be implemented in a future update. Number six is Spidersaurs. The majority of people dont know that this platform game supports two players locally. If you connect two bluetooth controllers, you will then gain access to the two player mode on the main menu.

Together you will explore places filled with treacherous obstacles, dangerous creatures, and explosive environments. Youll have different weapons to use, like spread guns, lasers, flamethrowers, and you can upgrade them over time. Number seven we have Sonic Racing In Sonic Racing, you can go into classic online races, or play in a Friendly Race.

With Friendly Races players can create a room or join a room with an invite code. There are heaps of maps to race on, power-ups to collect, and 15 playable characters from the Sonic Universe. I wish this game supported local split-screen, especially for Apple TV, hopefully this is implemented in a future update. Number eight is ChuChu Rocket!

Universe. ChuChu Rocket! Universe, is a new take on the original Dreamcast classic. This time it has 3D puzzles, a new quirky art style, and new planets to explore and solve. You can play in the story mode or multiplayer mode.

The multiplayer mode, allows up-to three other players to join in on the fun. The aim of the game is to get more ChuChu to your Rocket than your opponents. You can play in the quick match mode or Play With Friends by inviting them into private games. Sadly, it doesnt support local onscreen action.

Number nine we have Punch Planet. Here we have a sci-fi fighting game, that was made by Block Zero. Punch Planet has six playable characters, four stages, and a few modes. The mode were focusing on is Versus, where two players using two controllers can battle each other.

If youre on a Mac, one player can be on a keyboard and the other on a controller. The game is fun, but the replay value is a little short, I really hope they add more content in the near future. Number 10 we have Super Mega Mini Party.

Get ready to compete against other players, in silly mini games. There are eight mini games on offer, and up to four players can connect to matches. The first player to earn 100 crowns wins.

You can connect to a random party, join a game using a party code, or start your own party. The game doesnt support local onscreen co-op or action and it really should, what a big shame. Its perfect for it.

Anyway, RED GAMES have said more mini-games and characters are coming soon. But please, add local onscreen co-op. Number 11 is Super Impossible Road. This racer is very different to the norm, it actually wants you to cheat in order to win. But if you get too over confident with your abilities to cheat, this may be your downfall.

You can race online with up to eight other players at once, or you can play locally with four players on one device, and then the other four will be replaced with bots so youll still be playing with eight players. Each player must use their own controller too, obviously. On a Mac one player can play with the keyboard and the rest with a controller. Rogue Games have confirmed that it supports 60 frames across all Apple devices.

Number 12 we have Decoherence. If you havent played this player vs player strategy game yet, you might not know that it actually has an online mode for two players. You can join a random player, or invite friends.

Sadly, I could never connect to a player online, so its best to have a friend to connect to directly. When in a match, you have to place robots on the map, and plan a strategy before the battle commences. When in battle, you control a pilot who can fight alongside your bots. Efecto Studios have confirmed the game targets 60 fps on iPad Pro and and Mac, and it features custom graphic options too. Number 13 is Cricket Through the Ages.

This game, is all about two player action. You have to time throws or attacks to beat the other player. So if youre playing on a touch-screen both players can swing their arms using the left and right side of the screen.

On Apple TV both players use the Siri Remote and if youre on a Mac both players use a key on the keyboard. You can also just use one controller. I hope that makes sense in your head. Number 14 we have ShockRods. Here we have a vehicle combat game, featuring lots of vehicles to unlock, many arenas to fight on, and a wide range of modes to jump into.

We have Deathmatch, Team Deatmatch, Capture the Flag, ShockBall and Golden Ram. You cant play locally, nor can you create private matches. you can only connect to random matches online. Number 15 is Rosies Reality. In this puzzle game, you have to guide a little robot to the end of each level. With up to four other players locally you can play through three worlds, which incorporate heaps of levels inside.

Unfortunately, this game only supports local on-screen co-op on Apple TV and Mac. If you connect up to four controllers, you will then have access to the multiplayer mode. On a Mac, co-op requires controllers, you cant use the keyboard which is really silly. Number 16 we have Stellar Commanders. Welcome to a real-time one vs one strategy game, where you are fighting for total control of planets.

Each battle only lasts seven minutes, and you must destroy your opponent before time runs out or the whole planet explodes. You can join a random player online or connect to a friend directly. Players can also join a faction, choose units, and engage in intense strategy gameplay. Number 17 is Marble it Up: Mayhem!. Marble it Up: Mayhem! is a 3D platformer, that can be played in the offline single-player mode or in the multiplayer mode.

Players can search for online matches, or create or join a private game. There are two online game modes, Gem Hunt and Steal the Crown, two maps are on offer, and up to 10 players can join matches. The game targets 60 FPS on the following: Mac, iPhone 8 and up, 30 FPS on iPhone 7 and below and 60 on iPad Pro. Number 18 we have Fledgling Heroes. In this one, its all about leaping and soaring to the end of levels.

While you traverse, you need to dodge obstacles. There are 90 plus hand-crafted levels here, you can customize your birds, and use a built-in editor and share your levels online. Fledgling Heroes can be played with another person locally. Just connect a controller, and the second bird should automatically appear. Number 19 is LEGO Brawls.

When you launch LEGO Brawls, you can go into two multiplayer modes, party and brawl. Brawl will connect you to a random online four vs four match, and together with your team you must take control of a flag or a mech. Under party, you can create private matches. Here there are two different game options, co-op and versus.

You can also customize your brawler to stand out. And the game targets 60 FPS on new iPhone and iPads and 30 on older devices. And it supports custom graphics on Mac.

Number 20 we have Big Time Sports. Here is another party-game all about whacky sports. The developer Frosty Pop created a game with very simplistic graphics and gameplay, which therefore means anyone can enjoy this one, no matter your gaming experience or age.

It can be played in the local two player mode. One person plays at a time, and when your run is finished, just pass your device or controller to a friend. Each event plays quite differently, and its worth taking note of the tutorial shown at the start of each event or you could become a little confused. Number 21 is Red Reign.

Go head-to-head with others in online or local network multiplayer real-time strategy battles. Red Reign, asks you to secure your stronghold, prepare your army, and then attempt to win battles. Its made by the creators of Bloons TD, so the art style is quite similar.

Number 22 we have HyperBrawl Tournament. The art-style and gameplay here remind me of Rocket League, but instead of vehicles you control heroes. Each match is a two vs two fast paced 90 second round, and you can obtain weapons, and use melee action to stop the other team from scoring goals. There are a few different arenas, characters and abilities to use.

HyperBrawl Tournament allows you to connect four controllers to one Apple device for local on-screen action, or you can connect to random players online. Number 23 is Things That Go Bump. This is a one to four player online game that explores the themes of every-day objects coming to life. There is a multiplayer battle mode, however, sadly hardly anyone plays it, so hopefully we can get the player base larger with this article.

In battles, you will fight other every-day objects. You can collect and attach different body parts to your character, like legs, torsos, heads, eyes, and you can find different weapons too. Each collectable has different advantages and disadvantages for battles. Number 24 we have PAC-MAN Party Royale. Did you ever think that wed see a Pacman battle Royale type game?

I sure didnt. But thats what BANDIA NAMCO Entertainment, have brought us, and its actually really fun. Four players join matches, and the last one standing wins. You still have to avoid ghosts, eat pellets, run around a maze, and collect invincibility power-ups. Each level has a timer, and when the timer runs out, the glitch will appear and close in on the map.

If it touches you, youre dead, youre dead buddy. Sadly its missing online-matchmaking, and local on-screen action. So to connect with others you have to join via a party code. Okay, here are some bonus upcoming games with multiplayer. Recently, Konomai accounted that Frogger in Toy Town will soon have a new two-player co-op mode.

Konami recently said and I quote, By selecting the new CO-OP Play option in the main menu, users can now invite a second player with their own device to join the game as a guest. While froglets will run away if you bump into obstacles in Single Player mode, the new CO-OP Play gives a second chance to rescue froglets as they will go follow the other player instead. Hipster Whale are bringing a new Crossy Road title to Apple Arcade, it has been titled as Crossy Road Castle. It is now going to be a multiplayer 2D platformer, and players must hop around a large castle, clearing one room after another.

Coins must be collected, and obstacle must be avoided. Up to four players will be able to play together. There is no confirmation of when this game is going to be released but Hipster Whale said it will be launched soon, so go off that. What is your most played multiplayer game on Apple Arcade? For me its Hot Lava.

Do let me know in the comments, I would love to know. If you found this article useful please leave a like as these articles they take so long to put together just playing on all these devices, and subscribe and turn on notifications to be alerted about upcoming Apple Arcade articles.
