A couple of weeks ago, NimbleBit announced that they were looking for testers for their new upcoming game called Letterpad. It’s a word game that gives you a grid of 9 letters and tasks you with coming up with words from those letters that relate to a certain topic. Well, the game is just about complete at this point, and today NimbleBit have additionally announced that Letterpad will be playable on the forthcoming Apple Watch. Here you can see a mockup of what Letterpad will look like on the Apple Watch.
While I’m sure games will have a prominent presence on the Apple Watch, it’s really only suited to certain types. However, being a fairly straightforward word game, I think Letterpad has the potential to work really well when being played on a tiny screen on your wrist. A first-person shooter? Not so much. As mentioned Letterpad is close to completion, but as of right now no release date has been set. What we do know is it will come with 200 different puzzles to complete, as well as the ability to create your own puzzles and share them.
We’ll let you know when you can get your hands on Letterpad once that’s announced, and hopefully it won’t be too long before Apple lets us all know when we can get our hands on the Apple Watch.
