Back in the good old days when the Nokia 3310 boasted Snake around 17 years ago, it seemed like the epitome of human technology for gamers. Today we have smartphones in our pockets that can fairly compete for the title of handheld gaming consoles, but we aren’t stopping just yet.
While the initial idea behind smartwatches is to make notifications smarter and help us switch to a fit lifestyle, it does have an entertaining turn as well. Although the list isn’t exactly a formidable one, there are plenty of Android wear games for you to kill time with. Here is a list of the best Android smartwatch games we could find to keep you entertained at all times.
Lifeline: Silent Night
If you think that role-playing games are only fun on the larger screen, Lifeline: Silent Night by 3 Minute Games will change your mind. Based on invigorating stories by Dave Justus, the text-based story mode of the game puts you in charge of making decisions and keeping the storyline moving forward your way.
2048 for Android Wear
Most Android game addicts don’t need to be introduced to 2048, but for those who have a life, here’s what the game is about – The player has to combine a 2-square with a 2-square to make 4, then find a 4-square and another 4-square to make eight and so on. So if you’re just waiting at the bus stop and have some time to kill, pull up your wrist and start some number magic.
One of the few Android Wear games made just for wearable and not the smartphone, PaperCraft will take you back to the days of Space Invaders. Being a tiny paper triangle, you have been tasked to save the world by destroying every other shape that comes your way, so clear the field and stack up points to become the best PaperCrafter out there!
Rubik’s Cube for Android Wear
We all knew that nerdy kid in school who always had jittery fingers moving across the Rubik’s Cube trying to color coordinate it. If you’ve always wanted to be smart enough to solve the Rubik’s Cube but don’t have the means to carry one around at all times, just download Rubik’s Cube for Android Wear. Albeit the game does not beat the feeling of the real thing, but it cuts pretty close to being one heck of a time killer.
You’d have to be an addict to even juice out your Android Wear with games, and smartphone addiction would be incomplete with Flappy Bird out of the mix. Developer Sebastian Mauer does one better by turning the pixelated bird into a pixelated Droid while keeping the element of jumping through pipes to gain points alive.
