Pennsylvania based mobile developer BrickSimple has released a YouTube video showcasing GlassBattle, the first game for Google Glass. The game is a version of the classic game Battleship, a multiplayer game inspired by the classic game Battleship, developed using Google Glass’s Mirror API.
GlassBattle offers two-player synchronous turn-based play. Players call out attack positions on the grid by simply speaking to Google Glass (“Three, Two” for instance), and the game updates over the internet after each turn.
Google Glass Explorers will be able to use voice commands to choose coordinates and fire torpedoes at enemy vessels. The game is visually simple, reflecting the simplicity of Battleship, a game originally played with a pad and pencil during World War I.
While GlassBattle is already a fully functional game, it won’t be released for a general audience until BrickSimple’s Mirror API quota limitations have been increased.
Wartime photographs flash as the game ends in the video, which depicts one player walking around a pond while their opponent shops for groceries.
BrickSimple’s other applications include an iOS clipboard viewer, Xbox Live friend applications and more. The company also develops (or has developed) for Android, Blackberry, Xbox Live, Windows Phone and HTML 5.
