Description: Caldera Defense brings the tower defense genre to VR – and puts you inside a tower! You’ll defend your base from waves of bandits who attack with tanks, drones, fighters, and bombers.
Shoot cannons and guided missiles at incoming air and ground forces. To fortify your base, you can sell resources to build defensive structures. Can you survive the onslaught?
Review: You are not defenceless, you get to shoot cannons and guided missiles at the incoming air and ground forces. You can also raise your defences by fortifying your base and selling resources to build stronger defensive structures. Can you survive the onslaught and not let the tower fall into enemy hands?
With tanks, what looks like Daleks and giant motherships this is an all out battle. While the learning curve is a little steep you struggle on and seem to do better each time you play. It is a great feeling being behind the controls of a giant space torrent. Gunning down all that moves is something we have been playing for years. But in VR, it is games like that that feel the most immersive. If you love your shoot’em up’s this is well worth a download.
