The time has finally arrived that we’ve all been anticipating for months; some even years. By now those lucky few that managed to pre-order their Apple Watches on April 10 have finally had the chance to hold their treasures in their own hands (and/or on their wrists…). At last we can explore what these new tech-babies have to offer in technology and apps.
For those brave and fortunate early adopters, here are the games we’re most excited about:
Lifeline is a Pick Your Path, fully text based, adventure game. As the player, you make decisions in real time and follow along as the consequences play out. This game was penned by Dave Justus (Fables: The Wolf Among Us) and makes excellent and well-crafted use of the small Apple Watch screen.
This brain-teaser has been available on iOS for some time and was one of the Best of 2014 iOS apps. And now it is one of the most popular puzzle games to be available at the launch of the Apple Watch. Complete daily challenges on the small screen with your cute animated guides. The pint-sized puzzles will keep you entertained for hours.
Are you on top of the latest trends? Of course you are! Prove it in Poll Party. Puppies vs. Kitties, Robots vs. Zombies and Flying Cars vs. floating skateboards – vote on what you think is the most popular choice. Compare your scores to those of your friends. Stay in-the-know with this fun game of stats and trends.
Box Pop is minimalist puzzle game with the goal of popping boxes in an “L” shape. You’ll pop boxes through 40 increasingly difficult levels. The Apple Watch version of the game includes daily puzzles and 20 new achievements. You can also track stats for your iPhone game.
Runeblade is the “First fantasy adventure on a smart watch.” This Apple Watch title uses a simplified RPG mechanic, but still captures the experience of a full game. Players travel through lands, collect gear, unlock powers, and defeat enemies, all in fifteen-second game-play sessions.
Best Fiends has been one of the go-to games on my iPhone for a few months now. I have a compulsive need to beat evil slugs with use of powerful bugs. Now you can use your Apple Watch to collect treasure and explore the lands of Minutia. Connect your game to your iPhone and you’ll be able to level up your characters and make new discoveries.
Whatever games you choose, we’d love to hear about your experiences with the Apple Watch!
