Description: Distant Nightmare will immerse you in a dark and mysterious world thanks to VR. The game puts you in the shoes, and on the bike, of a child in a nightmare. Your objective is to cycle through the unexplored environments of your mind in hopes to survive the night and wake up the next day.

As you cycle through this VR world you will explore new environments, new creatures and challenges, as well as unlock a variety of bikes worthy of elusive nightmares and cycling demons. And if you want to push yourself even more and test your focus while you slumber and cycle, try the time trial mode where collecting time is the only way to survive. That’s if surviving the nightmare is even an option…

Review: While it has to be said there is far scarier horror style games out there Distant Nightmare still manages to hold its head high (mostly through value for money). With its fast-moving, challenging gameplay this game is a must for anyone who enjoyed “Into The Dead”. Sure, on paper it is a dead simple game which can get repetitive rather quickly. But with its high-score, you could at least get some extra gameplay time from doing a score challenge with friends. All-in-all it is just about worth its money, but keep in mind you didn’t pay a lot for it in the first place.
