Apple joined the gaming world last fall with the announcement of its $4.99-a-month mobile gaming subscription service, Apple Arcade. The service lets players download games on iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches, Macs and Apple TV devices to play offline, and almost all the content is exclusive to the platform. 

On Apple Arcade, you can play over 100 games from major and indie developers like Square Enix, Bandai Namco, Ubisoft, Capcom and The Chinese Room. More, including big names like The Pathless from Annapurna and Giant Squid and Beyond a Steel Sky from Revolution Software, are on the way.

But if you've tried out Apple Arcade and decided the service isn't right for you, you can unsubscribe at any time. Unlike Apple's other new service, Apple TV Plus, if you unsubscribe before the end of the month, you'll still get to use Apple Arcade until the next date you would have been charged.
