Nothing alarming here

Back in the day, video game watches were all the rage. This author has a Double Dragon timepiece kicking about which includes a pretty terrible LCD replica of Taito’s beat-‘em-up – but things have gotten a little more sophisticated since then. With smart watches a current curiosity, it was only a matter of time before someone got an emulator running on one – and that’s exactly what a YouTuber named EpicLPer has managed to do.

The results – which comprise a playable version of Croc: Legend of the Gobbos – are impressive, even if the combination of touch controls and tiny inputs don’t look especially effective. Think of this as more of a novelty than an alternative to a PlayStation Vita, then – after all, we doubt that you’ll be beating the notoriously difficult Crash Bandicoot with this on your wrist. It’s hard enough with an original DualShock, for goodness’ sake.
