Daedalus (Google Daydream)
Intro: Daedalus, architect and creator of fantastic mechanical artifacts, was imprisoned by the king Minos to prevent him from sharing his knowledge of Creta’s Labyrinth with others Every night, in his dreams, Daedalus explores the intricate labyrinths aboard his own winged creations, trying to relive every step, each leap, each flight to freedom, attempting to escape his own tragedy. Help him find the 3 platforms that open the gate of each level and explore the mysterious environments derived from a dream. As the levels progress, the difficulty rises and the architecture grows more and more perplexing. Boost yourself, glide, take advantage of the wind columns, make use of trampolines and activate mechanisms that pour new platforms at your feet to reach your objective. Will Daedalus escape his own prison?
Verdict: Daedalus is not just a game, it’s a VR showcase tool! It’s exciting, adventurous, relaxing and even slightly challenging, it’s much more than a simple VR experience, but isn’t quite a full game neither, its something in between and that’s OK. With its slow-paced gameplay and relaxing music it is hard not to feel a little relaxing within Daedalus’s worlds and of course, it does help that it looks sparse, but also beautiful at the same time. With super tall stone walls surrounding you and various stone and metal platforms to land on, its an almost alien world that really captures you and takes you away from it all which is exactly what you need from a VR game. Well worth a download at any time, but at time of writing this it is half-price which makes it even better.
