Given that smartwatches have small screens, at least compared to mobile phones and tablets, safe to say that the kind of games that you could play on these devices might be very limited. However the good news is that it seems that developers and publishers aren’t shying away from it.
Speaking to CNET, EA Mobile executive vice president Frank Gibeau revealed that the company currently has two teams that are looking into creating games for the recently announced Apple Watch and other wearables. It is unclear as to what kind of games we might expect, but that’s what EA is looking into at the moment.
According to Gibeau, “We have two teams prototyping wearable experiences that are not only standalone, but also some ideas where you can actually use the fitness component in the watch that can unlock capabilities in the game that might be on your iPhone.” So far there seems to be at least one game for the Apple Watch which is the iArm Wrestling Champs.
It is a game that will use the accelerometer in the watch to let you play a slightly more hi-tech version of arm wrestling with a friend. It will be interesting to see what developers will be able to cook up, but in the meantime what kind of games do you think will be great for wearables?
