Letterpad is the first game announced for the Apple Watch


Even though the Apple Watch is not expected to be launched until March, the wearable already has its first game. Titled Letterpad, the game will be available for the Apple iPhone and the Apple iPad in addition to the Apple Watch. Remember, the screen on the timepiece is 1.5-inches meaning that developers have their work cut out for them, although we are not talking about a graphics intensive game with a lot of flashy visuals.

Featuring a 3 x 3 grid of letters, Letterpad will come with 200 puzzles to solve. Users will be able to create their own puzzles and can share them with other players.

So far, pricing and availability are unknown. Of course, with the Apple Watch itself not expected to see the light of day until March, you wouldn't be able to play Letterpad on your wrist until then, anyway.

I think a normal human finger is larger than that boxes :D

There're a lot of other smart watches much better than this.

Remember, most ios users are children, teens and women, so it makes sense the watch was developed for small dainty fingers.

Apple watch is the king of all smart watches,

This device will bring huge innovation.

I always thought round smartwatches are the most attractive but I have realised the square ones are the most functional.

When I read this guy's comments I never know if he's an apple fanboy or if he's just doing that to make people mad...

Yes , what you have said is very right , round watches look better but less practical for app devs +1

How can something be king and its not even out? My battery life is good on the best smartwatch moto360, went to work 8 hours came home with 75% battery and I'm a heavy user because I don't take out my phone.

So humans now want to play on a stupid wrist wearing device? Consoles , PC gaming , handheld gaming devices , heck even phones weren't enough? Utter stupidity. I'd totally prefer a real watch over these over priced pieces of s**t.
