Description: In Blast The Past you operate a wrecking crane in VR to destroy the last remaining old building in a city of new skyscrapers, so push buttons, turn wheels and make sure the ball hits its target! The last remaining old house in this city of glass has to be removed for the future of the city. You will carry out the sentence. As a demolition specialist, your task is the destruction of the house but in order to preserve the past, it is recommended that you also collect the remaining items of historical importance.
Review: OK, so ‘Blast the Past’ isn’t going to take up too much of your time and you should be all done and dusted within a single hour, but for that hour you will be immersed in a demolition crane smashing a building down to rubble. It’s simple, it looks great and I have to say I had a blast playing it. In fact, I do feel it is worth a few quid at least, but for a freebie, this is one game that is easy for me to recommend. Maybe try it out yourself and let me know what you thought about it in the comments below.
