Android Wear is still a very fresh mobile operating system and the first two smartwatches powered by it, namely Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch, have just become available for purchase. Yesterday, Unit9 Games announced "the very first Unity3D game specifically developed for AndroidWear" which is simply called SWIP3.
Unit9 Games' SWIP3 is a straightforward puzzle game in which the player needs to match three blocks of the same color. Once this is done, the blocks disappear and some points are awarded. The obvious goal of the game is to score as many points as possible, since the game also includes an online leaderboard feature.
The game is also compatible with Android smartphones, has a size of 18 MB and requires at least Android 2.3 to run. SWIP3 is automatically installed on the smartwatch once it is opened on a smartphone powered by Android and connected to it.
SWIP3 can also be played online for free at http://swip3.unit9.com/, while the version for Android Wear devices costs $1.69 USD.
