Role-playing games are traditionally epic, sprawling affairs. By contrast, Runeblade (free) has you play for a few seconds at a time, and lets you tap a button to furiously slash away at evil fantasy creatures. That’s it, mostly, at least in the moment-to-moment action. It’s about as streamlined as an adventure game could possibly be, making it a fair fit for the Apple Watch.
Granted, the action is so simple that you might lose interest, but the depth comes with everything around the combat: Building up your skills over time and enhancing your armored heroine, plus you’ll find story segments on the phone. And the artwork is delightful, too.
