If you fondly recall the Nintendo Game and Watch devices from the 1980s, you’ll love Alien Invasion 1.0 for the Apple Watch, from UK-based developer Light Pillar. The game provides old-school Game and Watch-style action right on your wrist, controlled completely by the Digital Crown.

“You are Commander Snafu, you’ve bungled your attempt to take over the Earth because your army of aliens cannot survive in Earth’s atmosphere! Your troops are fleeing and need rescuing before they explode in the vacuum of space. Save them and maybe you can salvage your career, you incompetent fool!”

There are two game modes, Game A is for beginners, while Game B offers a faster-paced challenge. The game is Game Center connected, and you can challenge your friends from the iPhone version of the app via your favorite social network.
