LG is giving owners of its new G3 smartphone fewer reasons to pop open the device’s QuickCircle case, after it announced the first game that is optimized to run entirely within its see-through window.

The case is designed to offer protection for the device and also quick access to notifications and details on the screen — gaming is also (an important?) part too. The first QuickCircle-optimized title is Puppy Pop, a free app that lands in Google Play today.


We’ve seen this kind of thing before with games that use the iPhone 5c case when attached backwards. This time, however, the LG games are entirely legit and make use of the company’s SDK to optimize for the window-sized screen.
