The Oceanhorn series returns with Oceanhorn: Chronos Dungeon to Apple Arcade, with the first chapter in the Oceanhorn Expanded Universe from developer Cornfox & Bros. Inspired by classic fantasy board games, Chronos Dungeon will play as a 16-bit dungeon crawler. The new game will also include a local co-op mode for four players.
The new game takes place 200 years after the events of Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm (one of the best arcade games of 2020 according to Apple). After the disaster, small settlements in uncharted seas are all that remains of the Kingdom of Arcadia. Wandering groups of wild men, goblins and alien ogres pose a constant threat to the remaining settlements.
A group of adventurers – Knight, Huntress, Grand Master and Wizard – decides to restore Arcadia, guided only by rumors, knowledge and prophecies. Once the group finds the mythical Chronos Dungeon containing the Paradigm Hourglass, they realize that this may be the only chance to return to the past and save Arcadia.
Although this is Oceanhorn’s third game, Cornfox & Bros. says that playing the first two games is optional. The game has random modifiers that make each level unique for a more repeatable play. Each adventurer starts each game with different stats based on their zodiac sign to get a different experience each time.
A year ago, with the launch of Apple Arcade, Apple entered the world of mobile gaming. The subscription gaming service costs $ 5 per month and allows you to play over 140 games on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod Touch and Apple TV.
When you buy one of the new Apple iPhone 12 devices, you get a free three-month trial of Apple’s gaming service. Even if you don’t buy a new device, if you sign up for Apple Arcade for the first time, you will have a month of free trial. Additionally, Apple One was released late last year and makes it easier and more affordable to get up to six Apple subscription services, including Apple Arcade, for a single price.
