You Sunk for Android Wear takes battleship action to your wrist
Is Android Wear for gaming? I wouldn’t say so, but if you are going to be playing with your smart watch, you may as well get a game that is optimized for the small screen experience. Given, this is hard to accomplish, but we are impressed about how You Sunk managed to successfully fit a warfare game into screens that usually range between 1.3 and 1.6 inches.
This is mostly because the experience is quite basic and has very simplified controls. But the title manages to be addictingly fun, which makes it a good download. Your goal is be to sink enemy ships, stop torpedoes from hitting you (by shooting them) and avoid harming friendly battleships.
A small radar located on the bottom-left corner will keep you well-informed about other vessels’ whereabouts, as well as alerting you when there is a torpedo headed towards you. You can look around by swiping left and right, then press the red button to fire. When you are on the offensive, you need to calculate the distance of the ship and shoot accordingly. For example, if a vessel is very far, you will have to shoot way ahead of it in order for the torpedo to hit it.
There are three difficulty levels, obviously labeled as easy, medium and hard. The situation can get pretty rough, but maybe you can raise above it by taking advantage of the 5 types of weapons you are offered. These include torpedoes, auto-guided torpedoes, auto-guided rockets, electro-magnetic impulses and nuclear rockets (that escalated quickly). Users can also choose between night, dawn and day. And if you need some more extra help, it’s also possible to upgrade your armor and torpedo speed.
The best part is that this game is free to download! Seriously, give it a good test and you may find yourself suddenly loving Android Wear gaming. The most addicting games are often the simplest ones. Furthermore, these titles can be among the funnest. Got an Android Wear watch?
