Review: You probably don’t need me to tell you that Block Wave VR is pretty much Tetris in VR and the idea is to fill the floor square and make as many blocks as you can disappear. Of course, things are not that simple and soon the pieces are falling faster than you can humanly cope with. While I like the idea of the game I felt the controls here not well made and nothing felt natural. Personally I would wait for this to be in a sale, even if it is only £3.99 full price, as I feel paying a little less for this will help you appreciate what there is in this game a little better.
