I was playing Crossy Road on it earlier .. suppose it's ok as a time killer.

I remember the days when the old Sky+ boxes had full access to all of their casino games
Beehive bedlam pleaseeeeee

Thank you just seen it in the App Store
Tried a few games...

While I don’t expect PS4 for free, they’re so painfully slow, incredibly glitchy and the input lag is shocking.

It was more fun on the original sky boxes way back when.

Surely they can at least make the gameplay smooth?

Fathom was solid. Some of the later levels used to drive me mad.

Well it's technically true when you look how much $ky charge.
Who asked for that? That's what phones and games consoles are for.

Well it's only catering to the small mobile game market isnt it? The Sky box ain't gonna run AAA games like on consoles and PC. They could have Stadia, PS Now and XCloud on it I guess
I miss the old EastEnders darts you used to play on Sky

It's not free, you need Sky!
Also, you need to pay for electricity so it's not free

If any of those get into bed with sky, they will wipe the floor.
Streaming services are the way forward for mass market
Beehive Bedlam and Corporal Cluck
Tried a few... They’re so laggy! The SkyQ box runs warm doing nothing so I’m worried these games will fry the poor thing. Looking for a way to disable and hide these before the kids find them.

It’s a nice gesture, but they’re not optimised for Sky Q hardware
Phathom plz
Tried tetris....functions on the remote are not easy to use, so it's another thing on Sky i wont be using.

Thanks, but no thanks

Sky games was well ahead of the times!

I remember a Pacman like game, but it was a zombie chasing you. That's like 20 years ago now I think. Amazing times
