Description: Axe Throw VR is the perfect virtual reality arcade party game – almost anyone can play! Left handed, right handed, big or small, young or old. In Axe Throw, a virtual axe throwing range becomes your playground or you can see how long you can fend off a zombie apocalypse in survival mode.
With unlockable axes, lots of achievements, plenty of different target types to challenge your skills, and the zombie survival mode, you’re going to find this game easy to pick up and hard to master. There’s also a practice mode where you can throw as many axes as you like to improve your VR axe throwing techniques. Master your throwing, take on some undead and storm your way up the Steam leaderboards to show the world how it’s done!
Review: You might think ‘Axe Throw VR’ is about throwing axes and very little else. And…you would be right. But don’t let that put you off this game because you will be surprised at the amount of polish this game has. It’s not only fun to play, but the axe throwing itself feels pretty realistic! OK, so I haven’t thrown an axe in real life, but it feels good anyway. There are even unlockable axes to give the game some longevity. While I do think you will get your money’s worth playing this on your own you will get better value for money from this game if you play it with friends and family. Simple fun it might be, but it’s well made and gives you your money’s worth.
