Description: Ever think of yourself as having a sharp eye? Or good at explaining stuff with pictures? Time to put your skills to the test in this fast-paced party game. While one player wears the VR headset and builds something out of blocks using their hands, the other players try to guess what they’re making. Is it a house? A snake? A bowtie? Who knows! This modern twist on the classic Charades formula is jam-packed with different modes, features, and of course words, so that there’s always a new way to play.
Review: ‘Constructionary’ is a shape-based version of Pictionary in which the person in VR gets given a choice of 3 words or objects and has to pick one. They then try and make that said object out of rudimentary shapes and blocks. For the first few words, you will have a laugh playing it, especially if like myself you are terrible at making things. But you soon realise that this is quite a shallow game and you will get bored of it rather quickly. This is not the first time we have seen this sort of thing as ‘DoodleVR‘ is very much the same thing. For just £2.89 I still think this is worth a look, but do be warned the fun gets old very quickly.
