Description: 3D Joys is more of a utility and is short for 3D Joysticks. It’s called that because it’s based on Joysticks used in arcades. 3D Joys allow the player to go 6 different directions instead of 4 directions like from a regular Joystick with the help of VR controllers. The player can summon their 3d Joystick at the position of their hand by using the grip button and choosing from up, down, right, left, forward or backwards. Testing their hand eye coordination.

Review: Believe me when I say this as given the amount of indie VR games I have played over the years these words do not come lightly. ‘3D Joys’ is THE most basic game I have played in VR so far. In fact, I could believe the developer made it within minutes rather than a single hour. The idea is you “summon” a 3D joystick (yes, the likes of the Atari 2600 console) and you then play a game of remembering the light pattern and copying it with your joystick.

Why on earth this isn’t a free game is beyond me because there is NOTHING here in almost every sense of the word! Sure, it only costs £2.09 but even then this game is vastly overpriced and there is nothing here for me or anyone else to recommend! Who knows, maybe I missed the point of this “project”, all I do know is people should stay well clear of it unless it suddenly becomes a freebie and even then I would struggle to recommend reasons for you to download it.
