With all the proverbial hustle and bustle surrounding Android wearables and what you might be able to do with them, the concept of gaming on them has been a little ignored –most people seem focused on seeing notifications on the tiny screens or having their fitness goals tracked. One of the first real additions to the wrist-based gaming market is Flopsy Droid, described as an experimental game that is inspired by the popular Flappy Bird app.
The premise of the game is very simple: pilot your droid through a bunch of obstacles… the difficult part is trying to stop playing when technically you can never put it down (because it’s sitting there taunting you on your arm).
If you haven’t yet experienced the frustration and joy of playing Flappy Bird (or even if you have), and you have an Android Wear device paired with your smartphone, consider taking Flopsy Droid on a test flight for free now.
