    South of the Circle is one of those games that you'll either love or hate. The great news is that is an Apple Arcade game, you can try it without spending extra money. And if you do, you won't regret it.

    What South of the Circle lacks in dynamic gameplay mechanics, it makes up for with a heartbreaking, heartwarming, thrilling, and terrifying story. It takes players on an emotional rollercoaster filled with unforgettable moments that tug at the player's heartstrings. For those looking to escape reality for a few hours, or for a few moments here and there, South of the Circle is an unbeatable narrative experience that's well worth the cost of an Apple Arcade subscription.

    South of the Circle masters the art of storytelling through videogames, presenting a deep and mature story using a perfect style, but you have to be aware that this is actually a novel with very limited interaction.
