Description: Play the timeless classic in a 21st century finish. AstroBlast VR brings the feel of arcades back, only this time compete against players from all around the world. Float through space and destroy the asteroids before they crash into you in a beautiful interpretation of a classic arcade game. The gameplay is seated and the ship is controlled with a virtual joystick with your VR controllers. Just kick back, listen to the beautiful soundtracks, relax and shoot some asteroids and alien spaceships.

Review: While I wasn’t expecting much from ‘AstroBlast VR’ (given that it only costs £2.09) but I have to say it was well worth the money. Its a seemingly never-ending space shooter in which you will be shooting asteroids and enemy ships all in 6 DOF with a nice view of planet Earth below. I was happily immersed for a good few hours here and while it seems to be neverending I was enjoying myself and happy just to get the best score I could. This is well worth a look for those looking for a cheap space shooter, but as with all games in this genre it is very nauseating so consider yourself warned.
