What’s new for Apple TV, February 8th, 2018

Good news if you’re a gamer, as we’ve got everything from platformers, to racing sims to match-3 and memory games in this week’s new and updated Apple TV app roundup. For everyone else…well, are you interested in the weather, weed and/or whiskey?

New Apple TV Apps:

  • Dandara – We told you last week that this metroidvania-style game was on its way to Apple TV, and now it’s here. Grab your wireless gamepad (our recommendation) and enjoy some intense platformer action.
  • Dark Puzzle – That memory game you played as a kid? It was an experiment unknown research organization to find ways to control the human mind and to create an Artificial Intelligence that outperforms it. Play it again to retrieve the data and save humanity from hits dark future.
  • Cradle of Empires – “… a breathtaking odyssey that challenges your matching, building and collecting skills,” is probably a bit rich when describing a match-3 game, but we won’t deny the occasional need for some casual gaming on the Apple TV.
  • Weatherep – Set up locations for weather reports then sync them across your Apple TV, iPhone, and Apple Watch for easy access.

Updated Apple TV Apps:

  • King of Thieves – This exceptionally popular (and well-received) PvP arcade platformer gets a stability and bug fix update, but it introduces a new gameplay element, too: random traps.
  • Asphalt 8: Airborne – 300 million people are playing Gameloft’s lauded racing sim across Apple TV and mobile devices, and what’s the one thing they felt that game was lacking? Fall Out, Boy!
  • Weed and Whiskey TV – Original cannabis- and spirits-friendly programming. “The vast majority of our original programming is only four minutes and 20 seconds in length…” Appropriate, and a good thing, too; any longer than that and you’ll start to worry that maybe your TV is watching you.
