Updated on April 30th, at 17:00: We've added a few more games worth looking at. Any take your fancy?

Original story follows…


Yes, you read that right. The Apple Watch can play games. This wrist-worn computer isn't just about fitness and calendar updates - it's also a brand new gaming platform.

And as mobile games are something of a speciality around these parts, we thought it was worth wrapping up all the new Apple Watch games (that you need to bother yourself with).

All of the games on this list are available right now, as updates to existing iPhone games. Want more games? Here are upcoming games worth waiting for.

Watch Quest - download Watch Quest

How do you fancy a proper RPG tucked away into a tiny screen? You'll manage your kingdom and hero's equipment with your iPhone but send them out for hours-long adventures on your Watch.

Watch this Homerun - download Homerun

Eyes Wide Games wants to bring many sports titles to the Watch, and this is its first. It's baseball condensed down to whacking back balls with an accurately timed tap, but with leagues and leaderboards for those who can ace the art of smartwatch batting.

Mu - Watch Pet - download Mu

Expect a lot of virtual pets on the Apple Watch. Like Mu - a cute blue blob who can look after on your Apple Watch. But developer Moolion says this is more RPG than Tamagotchi. You can also get notifications from Mu and check his vital stats from the Glances menu. Tamagotchi Classic - download

Tamagotchi

It was only a matter of time, right? The update to Tamagotchi Classic lets you "check on your Tamagotchi's status and take care of it on your Apple Watch", which includes "sending it to the restroom or feeding it."

Dungeon Monsters - download Dungeon Monsters

A creaky old maze explorer, like we played in the 80s. But this time it's on your wrist. you'll explore a dungeon, fight monsters, and find magic potions. "Gold won on the Apple Watch is multiplied by two," says the developer.

Walkr - download Walkr

A health conscious game that encourages you to walk to explore a galaxy. Your steps, recorded on the Apple Watch, will be converted into rocket fuel (just go with it) that will propel a tiny craft to new and unusual places. Sounds like hard work.

You can now bring this football belter to your Watch. An bonus companion app lets you "manage your top 5 player transfers and get instant notifications right on your wrist," according to EA's patch notes.

Battle Camp is one of them monster-battling puzzle MMOs that all the kids are talking about. But this one lets you raise a Tamagotchi-style pet on your Watch. You'll need to keep it fed, happy, and well-rested. And if you evolve your pet to the maximum stage you'll get a bonus goodie in Battle Camp proper.

This cute, retro-styled Tamagotchi alike now has an Apple Watch app so you can look after your monster when "you are in a high powered meeting". Because that sounds productive.

Gravity Mike - download Gravity Mike

I'm not sure how smart it is to try and squeeze an entire platformer onto the tiny screen of a smartwatch, but I'll try anything once. Except all the things that would immediately maim or kill you. Hopefully this game isn't one of those things, but it doesn't look massively comfortable.
