Description: Welcome, Admiral! Select your fleet, assign weapons, and sink the enemy fleet by controlling each of your ships down to setting the aim and range of each weapon’s shot.

You can play the full game in VR, including multiplayer against non-VR players. VR support is in an early stage and we will continue to improve the interactions and address any issues that come up in VR mode.
Review: Playing in VR with full room-scale is a pretty impressive experience. The game looks incredibly detailed and the maps are big enough to make you feel deeply immersed. While you don’t get access to a lot of the game for the entry price of £11.39 you can at least unlock all the rest of it by playing through the campaigns and online. All in all this game ticks a lot of good boxes and there is a lot to enjoy here. The biggest issue I have with this game is the slow-pace of play even when you just play against the AI. If you think chess is a slow and boring game this is definitely not for you! This is a deep thinkers game, if you want action and lots of it, its best to look elsewhere.
