Have a “Field Day” with the tiniest farming game for Apple Watch
WatchOS 3 is now available to Apple Watch users, and that apparently means that some new games are available, too. Case in point? Field Day, from Everywear Games. Field Day is “an approachable farming game” in which Apple Watch Series 2 owners can “have fun anywhere with the tiniest farm in the world!”
You’ll also need watchOS 3 to go along with that Series 2 Apple Watch, as Field Day takes full advantage of the update’s graphics capabilities. But if you fit that demographic:
Field Day lets players sprout their very own farms with quick and simple glance-based gameplay, planting crops and raising cute animals to fulfill orders for a nearby town that lives on the Field Day iPhone client. The game supports some of the latest features of iOS 10, such as stickers that can be shared via iMessage…
“watchOS 3 combined with Apple Watch Series 2 is a real game changer for Apple Watch developers,” said Mika Tammenkoski, chief technology officer of Everywear Games. “They allow us to create brand-new experiences that make these devices more fun than ever before, and we could not be more excited about launching Field Day alongside them!”
It’s heartening to see this kind of enthusiasm for the Apple Watch updates, as gaming options have been pretty thin with the device’s original release. I can’t imagine anyone would buy an Apple Watch specifically to play games, but the proper title can create fun diversions since you always have it with you and it’s even easier to get to than your iPhone.
Field Day is free-to-play now on Apple Watches updated to watchOS 3, and will be playable on the new Apple Watch Series 2 when it’s released on Friday.
