There aren’t a lot of platformers on Apple Arcade right now, but Dodo Peak is one of the best. The levels are reminiscent of a 3D version of the original Donkey Kong arcade, as you navigate a series of platforms, dodge obstacles, and move ever upward, occasionally collecting helpful items along the way. A controller is particularly useful for this one!
Final Note About Trying Games with a Controller
Give it a shot. From what we can tell, you can still use controllers on a number of games that don’t specifically mention compatibility. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, so at least try once if you find a game you like.
