We also know that the first smartwatches with Android Wear will be LG G Watch and the Moto 360.

With a rather strange name that is actually a graphical representation of what the game is all about – a smaller and some bigger circles; oO is one of those games that are incredibly simple to play and addictive in the same time. Described as a minimalist “dodge-em-up” arcade game, inspired by Pivvot and Super Hexagon, this game already has some users saying this “Love it! I love it and hate it at the same time, but I just can’t put it down.”
