Description: Brix VR is a simple breakout/Arkanoid style game designed for VR. Control the paddle with one hand while using your other hand to collect the power-ups by shooting them with lasers! If that doesn’t sound fun, I don’t know what does! With 50 levels, 15 power-ups (or downs), and 4 difficulty levels, Brix VR offers hours of fun, casual gameplay for all ages! 2 different music playlists depending on your mood at the time. Chill or upbeat!
Review: Some people (like myself) enjoy playing these retro-style games in VR and many others don’t. ‘Brix VR’ is one of those games. It’s a brick breaker with some nice little 3D effects as well as some good use of the motion control to control powerups and things. OK, so it’s nothing special to look at and the gameplay gets repetitive rather quickly, but then again it only costs £0.79 and most people should get their money’s worth of fun from this game. OK, so there are far better brick breaker games out there like DUO, but this is still worth a look if you love a bit of retro-style fun.
