Description: Clear the room, hide the pets, and use the wrist straps! Brain Voyagers: Ricochet is an energetic game of skill, coordination, and focus. Defeat waves of enemies in a variety of play spaces using a mix of different tools and powers to create, control, and deflect deadly balls of energy. Parry or dodge incoming fire, manage your energy to do things like change trajectories or create additional projectiles, take advantage of new playspace features like barriers or accelerators, and manage the game’s challenge in real-time.

Your main weapons are also your main threats, as energy balls are your only way to defeat the enemy – but they can harm you as well. Enjoy an immersive VR experience with the challenge of real-life paddle sports, the quick thinking of martial arts, and the fun of classic games like Arkanoid. Four different levels of difficult mean you can play Casual with your kids or challenge yourself to beat the bots on Hardcore. Defend yourself!

Review: Brain Voyagers: Ricochet is what you get if you crossed a brick breaker game with Space invaders. Its an all-action, ball-bouncing game and at times I have to say it gets pretty manic and feels quite exciting to play. While there isn’t a whole lot of variety in the scenery or enemies it looks OK, it a little basic. All the right things are here to make this a good game. It looks OK, has plenty of action to keep you amused and a nostalgic feel to the gameplay. But sadly you would have to be nuts to pay £10.99 for this. In fact, I would go so far as to say no-one should be paying much more than a single quid for it. Its no good having lt of levels if those levels are all the same gameplay! But do keep an eye out for it in a big sale.
