First Apple Watch game hits the App Store

The first game with Apple Watch support has arrived on the App Store, ahead of the wearable’s release next month.

Following the roll out of the first wave of third-party apps on Thursday, the makers of the Rules! puzzle app have issued an update offering Apple Watch support (via TouchArcade).

Rules!, which requires users to remove number and picture tiles from the display in the correct order, has been available for the iPhone and iPad since August 2014.

This latest update brings a “brain workout mini game with daily goals for Apple Watch with leaderboards and statistics on your iPhone.”

As the Apple Watch doesn’t have the ability to store standalone apps, users must download the iPhone apps with Apple Watch support in order to use them on the wearable.

A host of popular apps like Evernote, Dark Sky, Sky Guide, MLB.com, CNN, Line, Things, Expedia and the Wall Street Journal already have Apple Watch support.

Apple has crowed about the range of activities users will be able to perform using the Apple Watch, but so far the firm has been very quiet on the gaming potential. However, it seems certain a host of popular iPhone games will make the transition to the wrist-bound device.

Puzzle and trivia games seem to be particularly suited to the smaller screen, while users may be able to control certain elements of strategy games like Clash of Clans via the wrist.
