The Apple Watch now has a full RPG from the makers of Final Fantasy

Square-Enix has released its first game for the Apple Watch, an RPG by the name of Cosmos Rings.

The £4.49/$6 title, which is exclusive to the watchOS device, requires both the iPhone and the Apple Watch to play.

“Retro pixel art and the Apple Watch’s cutting edge graphics come together to tell an unforgettable story,” says the App Store description.

In your quest, you’ll take on the role of The God of Time and attempt to rescue your good lady, the aptly-named Goddess of Time. She’s been shattered after you altered time to meet the whims of puny humans.

Now you have to travel through the lands (or the Rift as it’s called in the game), fighting battles along the way, in order to retrieve her crystallised remains.

You’ll be able to pick up skills to use in the “simple, but engaging battles” and fragments to upgrade your gear. Players can even use the digital crown to go back in time.

Early reviews are mixed, with many criticising its lack of substance and the inability to really have that much impact on the battles.

However, it looks pretty and is pretty unique to boot. If you’re giving it a try this weekend, share your thoughts in the comments.
