LG Opens Game World for Convenient Access to Smart TV Games

LG has announced its new Smart TV game portal - Game World.

Developed exclusively for its Cinema 3D Smart TV lineup, the portal provides an intuitive interface where users can conveniently search, purchase, and play game apps in both 2D and 3D. Many of the games can be played with LG's Magic Remote or with any third-party game pad.

The main menu displays a menu bar, which lists four categories - Featured, Top Chart, New, and Genre. The Featured category comprises some of the hottest games available, including games recommended by LG. Top Chart offers the most popular paid as well as freeware games. The New link lists the most recent games available in Game World while the Genre option gives access to game titles in categories like action, adventure, RPG, shooter, and strategy, just to name a few.

On top of that, there's also a tutorial with manuals and instructions for playing with a Magic Remote or a game pad, at the main menu at the Game World. The My Games section links users to all previously purchased games and displays a list of the most frequently played games, making it easy to find the next big hit. The titles available on Game World will consist mainly of family-friendly titles, with most titles being compatible with LG Magic Remote’s gestures and movement capabilities and many also playable in 3D.

Game World will be launched globally in the second half of this year.
