Apple Arcade on Friday added Marble Knights, a new fantasy adventure game from Wayforward Technologies, to its growing catalog of over 130 games. Marble Knights joins Wayforward’s other games on the platform, Shantae and the Seven Sirens and Spidersaurs.
In Marble Knights, you play as one of the Knights of the Round on a quest to save the Kingdom of Roundingham from the evil Lord Terroboll. Choose your knight and defend the kingdom with your sword, collect treasure, solve puzzles and gain Orb powers.
