Description: A Unique VR Horde Mode Shooter Where Your Punches Shoot Lightning! Test and Upgrade your fitness and endurance in the neverending challenge of BlitzPunch!
Review: ‘BlitzPunch’ is an arena-based action game in which you have to take down waves of triangles with your lightning producing hands, effectively lighting punching them back to where they come from. While that sounds simple enough you soon have to start prioritizing which ones to take down and which ones to leave for later and to be fair to the game it can be a good little workout. But there is certainly no beat-mapping here and the music is far too loud and there is no volume control which I found quite strange. While I admit I did have fun playing it there is simply not enough content nor variety to justify the current £8.29 asking price. It’s not a terrible game I suppose, but unless it is made a lot cheaper I don’t think I will be reminding it anytime soon.
