Review:I have played a lot of really good tower defence games in VR so far, but it has to be said ‘Alchemist Defender VR’ is one of the better ones. But this game is not just good looking, it also has some deeply strategic gameplay as well. You have the normal tower positions here, but you can also get down and dirty yourself and fire at some of the waves of bad-guys walking up the pathway. You can use both melee and ranged weapons and there is, of course, a range of towers to put down to help defend the land. While there are only 4 maps to play the number of waves on each do almost make this worth the £7.19 asking price. But I think it would be best to wait for a sale with this game. It is a good game anyway, but to make sure you get value for money it is best to get it on the cheap.
