Weve seen role-playing games (RPGs) designed for the incoming Apple Watch, and sports games made exclusively for Cupertinos wearable, too. Now, a new game from WayForward, the developer behind a bunch of iOS titles, promises to bring a classic adventure game to the Apple Watch. However, once again, theres a twist.
Called WatchQuest, the game indeed sees Apple Watch owners partake in an adventure on their smartwatch. Though, in a smart move, players choose their hero, equip weapons, and set off on a journey using their iOS device. The journey itself, however, is then played out on the smartwatch either actively or passively, according to the developer. This gameplay choice is the players to make, and in a recently published announcement post, WayForward explains:
Gameplay revolves around choosing a hero and equipping them on the iPhone, and then guiding the Hero via the Apple Watch as he or she travels lands, battles monsters, solves puzzles, and searches for treasures. Players are invited to play passively by selecting longer, easier quests and outfitting the hero up front or by taking on more difficult quests which require foraging for items as you go.
