The Play.Works app is now available on YouView (excluding first generation devices), accessible via the Apps page.
The app contains a number of games for viewers to play
- The service is free, and contains adverts.
- No account is needed.
- Games are single player, against the ‘computer’ or local multiplayer.
- Games are played using your remote.
Can anyone actually remember the last new app to be added?
Repeated and confirmed your Quiz TV finding, zulu17
Then I tried the Backgammon - not bad, until the end, when it was pointlessly moving its counters onto 1 and 2 in its home board, instead of getting its last counter, on 6 in my home board, out (all my counters were home, so it was unopposed) and it nearly backgammoned itself.
As it was, I gammoned it, whereupon the OK button went to Info Please Wait… and I am still waiting as I write this, as it has hung.
Should we rename this app Play.Doesn’t Work?
When can we expect Beehive Bedlam?
Also it would be cool to have a cloud gaming app on Youview, I've noticed BT offer Xbox Gamepass via their packages which could be streamed through Youview, with controller support. Kinda like Playstation Now or Google Stadia.
Also, slight issue with the music on Tetris not looping, just goes silent after a minute.
Overall I'm not to impressed with this app.
Also a cloud gaming app is the last thing Youview needs the now.
