    Hi there!

    So, I'm on a little mission to create small 'classic' games for Apple Watch.

    My latest, I'm giving away for free and it's called "MicroShip";
    a Battleship version with just one ship, 4 x 4 grid, you against the ai.

    Are there any other classics you would like to see "watchified"? :)

    When I think classic watch games, I think "Number Invaders" on the Casio calculator watch I had in the early 80's :)

    tic-tac-toe is about the only one that will fit on the AW, but might exceed the available processing power.

    Tic Tac Toe is shown by Apple in one of those AW ads, but I couldn't really find native app with ability to play against my friend on one AW.

    A developer came out with a couple Watch-only games like they could have made on LCD watches in the 80's which are pretty neat. He even included faint outlines of "inactive LCD cells" where the animated figures would be.

    Oh! I used to play a dungeon game on a little handheld LCD device. I can't remember the name, but I wonder if it could be adapted for the AW.

    Maybe a Connect 4 game, that lets you scroll with the screen and zoom with Digital Crown.

    Some nice suggestions here, thank you everyone! If I pursue any of the ideas, I'll be sure to let you know and give you due credit!

    I've made a Mastermind clone (PixelNerds), Shufflepuzzle, Hangman, Yatzy and MicroShip. I also made a "Whack-a-mole" game which is unreleased.
