By Christian Zibreg on Jan 22, 2015

In case you had any doubts — yes, some developers are busy writing their first games for the Apple Watch.

With that off our back, puzzlers seem like a really good fit for a wrist-worn device like the Watch.

And sure enough, as reported by TouchArcade, a developer that goes by the name of NimbleBit is planning to release Letterpad, an upcoming word puzzler for the iPhone and iPad, with support for the Apple Watch.

Wanna see how it’s going to look and feel like? Read on for the full reveal. Read More
