Is this how we’ll game on the LG G Watch and Moto 360? [VIDEO]

Android games Puk on smartwatch

A post on Reddit is gaining some steam after an app developer inadvertently managed to get his game running on a tiny smartwatch. The game in question is called Puk and although technically not built for the smartwatch, seems to running perfectly fine on the Omate Smartwatch.

The developer attributes smartwatch compatibility to the framework of the “coronaSDK” which plays nice with a variety of display sizes — even itty-bitty ones found on smartwatches. And while we know Android Wear’s primary function is simply to relay notifications from the smartphone to the wrist, we can’t help but wonder if games will eventually find themselves ported to the LG G Watch or Motorola Moto 360.

Now, we know all games wont make the transition so well, but for casual games like Puk, they seem right at home on the small, really small screen.

    And that`s why people complaining about poor battery life! Playing games and wants the screen to stay one for ever. I have the Gear 2 and the battery goes for 2 1/2 day on a regular use.

    Oh god it’s like the 90s tiger wrist watch games. I lived through that s*** and all I can ask is… Why??

    • Mark Wheeler

      And yes I’m aware graphics and functionality have come light years since then but dude seriously… You’re playing a game on your tiny wrist screen when a good chunk of you want giant phone screens.
