Icon Name Description Available Link Price
BoxPop Boxpop Mixing classic touchscreen puzzle-solving with chess, this game has you maneuvering a Knight (as in the horse-shaped chess piece) in its famous L-shape across a grid trying to pop all the boxes without getting stuck. Your mind will be challenged by the 40 levels on offer, which each escalate in difficulty. Launch TBA
Rules Rules! Already a hit on the iPhone, Rules! will challenge you daily with a number of brain-expanding exercises hosted by a group of cute characters. You need to tap a card to remove it from the screen, and do so in the order set by that level’s rule. A timer is ticking, so the deeper you get, the quicker you need to think to solve each riddle. Launch TBA
letterpad Letterpad Developer NimbleBit has some serious credibility in the iPhone gaming space thanks to blockbusters like Nimble Quest, Pocket Trains and Tiny Tower. The developer is bringing its next title to the Apple Watch, which is a simple word game you will be able to chip away at whenever the urge takes you. Plus, new user-created puzzles will be pushed directly to the Watch, always ensuring new experiences are on offer. Early 2015 TBA
ElementaryMinute Elementary Minute This quiz game will challenge you to think quickly and answer as many questions correctly as possible in a finite amount of time. While the iPhone version offers text-based yes or no questions relating to history and pop culture, the Apple Watch version strips it back a bit to offer maths equations and broad true or false statements. TBC TBA
Hatchi_icon Hatchi The famous retro-flavoured pet simulator is doing its bit for our furry friends, pushing basic imagery of your virtual critter to your Apple Watch so you can keep a close eye on its well-being. Launch TBA
ZombiesRun Zombies, Run! This innovative game converts your activity in the real-world (like going for a jog) into a fight for survival in a video game. It’s already a hit, and will be coming to the Apple Watch, although the developer currently has no date in mind. The excellent title actually takes you through an audio-based storyline as you run, too. TBC TBA
blastballduo BlastBall Duo This is a spin-off of the popular BlastBall Max puzzler available on the iPhone, which mixes up the action by providing a one-on-one experience right from your Watch. It’s like a mix of Bejeweled and Connect 4, as you fling yellow balls into empty slots on a grid with an aim to matching them up in a row. TBC TBA
TriviaCrack Trivia Crack Its name says it all as you compete to be the master of all knowledge across six categories; Science, Entertainment, Art, Geography, Sports and History. You can play the game against friends, therefore proving which of you truly has the biggest brain. TBC TBA
ingress Ingress This incredibly inventive game experience uses your real world location to create control points for trapping a threatening force.

iarmwrestle iArm Wrestle Champs! A perfect fit for the Apple Watch, this game monitors the movement of the Watch to see who wins an arm wrestling match, then gamifies and tracks the results. You can go around the office and prove you are the strongest. TBC TBA

    Great list. We were wondering if you plan on updating this list with our Apple Watch games. We’ve announced 3 so far and will announce 1 more every week. Our current games are Berry Quest, Blackjack Mini, and Football Twos.
