The new game flat rate GameClub wants to score with classics of the 32-bit era and represent an alternative to the curated offers of Apple Arcade. Through a GameClub subscription, around 50 games are to be played again, which were not able to run at the end of 2017 for the 32-bit apps from iOS 11 since the end of 2017.

Around 100 classics ported from 32-bit to 64-bit

On September 19, 2017, the company from Cupertino presented iOS 11, thus excluding the 32-bit apps on iPad and iPhone. A total of around 100 classic games of this era have given GameClub a new lease of life with a 64-bit version and have made them capable of running on current iOS operating systems. On offer are well-known titles, including Gears, Mage Gauntlet, Chopper 2 and Space Miner and Plunderland.

64-bit version for free for 32-bit buyers

Even former purchases will receive the 64-bit update, allowing buyers of the 32-bit version of the game even without Gambling Club subscription in full use in the 64-bit version. The registration at the GameClub can be skipped, the compulsion to subscribe does not exist. The GameClub app itself can be downloaded for free from Apple's App Store.

The central hub for all this curation is the GameClub app, making the best games only a single tap away. Each title is free to download and play – without a subscription – for those who have already purchased them through the App Store.
