Description: Classic puzzle games recreated in VR Did you ever play with little cubes with balls inside it? Just roll the balls to where they belong. Seems easy, but it’s not! Carefully designed to bring back classic puzzles to VR. There are even more fun and interesting puzzles that were designed from scratch. New puzzles have moving parts that were not possible in physical form. More puzzles will be added.
Review: Only in VR could someone make a skill ball game. And that is all that CubeBall VR is. It’s that classic ‘get the marble in the hole’ style of games by tilting it gently left and right, back and forth. There is 15 puzzles to do at the moment and some of them are a nightmare. You will need a steady hand and nerves of steel to do them. My problem with this “game” is why would anyone pay £2.09 for them in VR when they are hardly a real-world toy best seller! You most often get them for free in cheap crackers or party bags. While I admit I did have fun playing about with them I would have prefered this to be free so I could have easily recommended it. But paid it is a hard one to recommend.
