Thanks to advances in technology, more and more people are now enjoying Smart TVs. One of the best aspects about Smart TVs like LG’s is of course the ability to instantly access and play fun and exciting games. However, high quality games on Smart TVs have until now been somewhat limited as the technology is still new to the market. That’s all quickly changing though thanks to LG.
Recently, LG launched LG Game World to make downloading and playing diverse games as easy as a few clicks on your remote control. LG Game World is a game portal featuring a terrific user-friendly UI so customers can easily access and enjoy games (including titles in 3D) with LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV and LG Magic Remote.
Today, we take you on a tour of LG Game World, and provide recommendations on games we know you’ll fall in love with.
Let’s begin with a brief explanation on how to get started using LG Game World.
There are two ways to jump into Game World. First, on your TV’s home screen, click the ‘More’ icon on the Game World card. Alternatively, you can go into the ‘My Apps’ section and click the Game World icon.
Following either of the steps above, you will be taken to the main menu of LG Game World. To navigate, you will need LG Magic Remote or a 3rd party controller.
On LG Game World’s main menu, you will see a long bar along the top, promotion banners in the middle and icons of hot games at the bottom. One of the strengths of Game World is that you can find popular games, 3D titles, and special events easily from the main screen. Also, 3D games are denoted with a 3D badge on the upper left corner of a game icon (see right image).
Looking at the bottom left of the main menu, you’ll also see a tutorial option for LG Game World.
The tutorial provides step-by-step guidance on how to navigate LG Game World with LG Magic Remote, as well as how to connect a game pad with LG Smart TV.
Now that you know how to get around, it’s time to explore the vast games content available on LG Game World. The menus in LG Game World have been designed to be intuitive and easy-to-follow. Games are divided into four main categories, listed in the long, upper menu bar of the main menu:
|The hottest games available including games recommended by LG||The most popular paid and free games|
|The most recent games added to LG Game World||Games sorted by genre including action, adventure, arcade, puzzle, RPG, shooter, simulation, sports, and strategy|
After purchasing or downloading a game, it will automatically be saved in the “My Games” folder of the main menu.
