As we've seen recently with the likes of Aces of the Luftwaffe and Guns 'n' Glory Heroes - Wear, the studio is looking for ways to integrate the unique features of wearable technology into its wrist-mounted titles.
Vegas Fruit Slots makes use of the pedometer function, adding coins to your virtual pocket the more steps you make in a day. Those coins can then be poured into the smartwatch fruit machines where you can vainly attempt to add more cash by playing the slots.
The game is set to arrive on Google Play in the next two weeks, priced at 69p/99c, with no in-app purchases or advertising. Vegas Fruit Slots will be compatible with the current range of Android Wear devices from Samsung, LG, Motorola and Sony right off the bat.
