Although youâ€™ll be able to play it for free, that will only allow you to the first quest. After that, youâ€™ll need to raid your credit card or store credit to play the rest of the game. Unlike the slightly deceptive â€śfree to playâ€™ label, Watch Quest is really â€śfree to startâ€ť.
Most of the gameplay, such as combat, resolving puzzles and seeking loot, is carried out on the Apple Watch. Managing your kingdom and replenishing supplies will require your iPhone of iPod touch.
This makes sense and, we think, will reflect how many Apple Watch apps will work. The smaller display and interface of the Apple Watch lends itself to some activities while others will be executed on an iPhone. So the two devices will be complementary.
