1. Sea Wolf Free
You’re the cadet manning the Periscope of a submarine and your goal is to take down rogue ships trespassing the area. Sea Wolf Free gives you a First person view and allows you to shoot underwater missiles at the ships. You can control the view using the bezel and shoot by tapping the display respectively. You get limited ammo so you have to make sure you don’t miss or else you’ll lose. It’s a fun game and completely free on the Galaxy Apps Store.

Next in the list, Orbita where you play as a spaceship orbiting a planet. The oncoming meteors are the obstacles and you have to survive for as long as possible. I particularly enjoy this game because it has decent graphics and you have to control the orbit with the bezel. The game gets more challenging as you play with an increase in the number of meteors approaching to hit you. This game looks simple but would occupy most of your free time, try it.
3. Terror Line
Terror line is another interesting bezel controlled game which looks a lot like one of the old Gameboy games. You are an angry square box who’s moving on a zig-zag path, and you’re objective is to travel as far without hitting the sides. You control the angry box with the bezel, rotating clockwise for right and counter-clockwise for left. The game is only available in Spanish but it’s not going to be an issue as it has only two options, Jugar = Play, and Salir = exit. If you want a simple game to kill boredom, this angry box would do it for you.

4. Tetris S2
This next game is the unofficial version of the classic Tetris. It works surprisingly well on that little display of the Galaxy Watch. The game works just like the original, you have to arrange different pieces on the floor without any gaps. You lose once the pile reaches the ceiling. You can tap on the sides to slide the pieces left and right. It keeps track of your score, high score, and level on the left. If you enjoyed the original Tetris, you’re going to love it on your Galaxy Watch.

6. Don’t Tap the Bombs
Next, we have a game which urges you “not” to tap on the bomb. It’s a simple game which tests your self-control. The gameplay is fairly simple, you are presented with a couple of white images which look similar to the bomb. You should only press an image that is not a bomb. It may look simple but it gets pretty intense as the game speeds up. You have to survive the level and create high scores, I had a lot of fun not tapping the bombs. It is free on the Galaxy App Store.

7. Snake Circle
This hidden gem in the Galaxy Apps Store is truly amazing. It’s a simple snake game which I’m sure you’ve played a lot of games like this. This game, however, takes advantage of the circular display and the bezel to offer different gameplay than the rest of the games. Instead of moving in four directions, The snake in this game moves in 8 directions and you control it with the bezel of the Watch. You can’t touch the edge of the display. The game is more interesting and fun when you play with the bezel when compared to other similar games. Try it, It’s free.

8. Discover the Key
Now, You must have seen that lock in movies or on your grandma’s safe with the rotary dial. Growing up watching people break into that lock by rotating the dial was certainly cool. Discover the Key uses the bezel as the rotary dial which you rotate to find the correct combination. The lock is secured with a three digit passcode and you have to figure it out by rotating the bezel, you get haptic feedback which resembles the real safe mechanism. Try it out, it’s free on the Galaxy Apps Store.

11. Flying bird Winter
The developers could name it Flappy bird because of, well copyright but this game had a love-hate relationship with most of the users. Some people loved it and some people despised the very existence of the game. While It’s not made by the original developer but it works the same way. You tap the bird continuously to keep it in the air while crossing a maze of Pipes. If you enjoyed Flappy Bird while it lasted, this would cheer you up and keep you busy.

It took some time to figure out this game uses the accelerometer to control the spaceship instead of bezels and touch. Launch is a simple game in which your objective is to last for as long as possible without hitting the meteors. You navigate by tilting your watch and it would be easier if you hold the watch in your hands instead of on your wrist. Launch is free on the Galaxy Apps Store.
The only math game I’ve loved ever, 2048 is a brilliant game and highly addictive. I’ve spent countless hours trying to achieve the high score in this seemingly simple game. Your objective is to create a tile numbered 2048. You can merge two tiles with the same value and the resultant tile is the addition of the two tiles. You have to be efficient in merging tiles otherwise the grid will be full and you’ll lose. If you’ve never played 2048, you should definitely try it.
14. Snipe n Watch
Looking for the target. Target Locked. Fire. Target Eliminated. You’re a paid shooter whose aim is to shoot and kill the bounty you receive. The gameplay is rather interesting and gives you a scope view of the rifle. You can zoom in and out using the bezel and pan by swiping the screen. Make sure you don’t waste your ammo shooting wrong targets because that’s not professional. Enjoy this Game on your Galaxy Watch for free.
