Intro: Dream Flight is a beautiful game about exploration and discovery, painstakingly crafted for Gear VR. Learn to guide and collect a variety of magical flight machines, and experience magnificent and ethereal scenery underwritten by a mesmerising soundtrack. Dream Flight is a hands-free experience. No controller is needed. However, headphones are highly recommended!
Review: From the moment the menu loads up you know this is going to be something very special. With a graphical style very similar to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (all be it with a low polygon count) the idea is to fly around the islands and lands collecting gems. What is a simple idea for a game has been executed by a genius. As you fly around the amazing scenery (with whales, birds, islands) you have to collect gems which interact with the music! So as you collect them you get various tones and pings that will perfectly match the music.
All those amazing things coming together create the ultimate VR dream lands. At times, you will feel emotional and others you will feel free like the bird or paper plane you are flying with. I played this game for so long that almost an hour had passed by and I thought it was only a few minutes! This is the type of game VR was made for.
Verdict: This game is all about flying around low graphical islands and scenes trying to collect gems. The End. Well…that is what the idea of the game is about. But how it’s implemented, how it feels, how it plays, really is a dream come true. The fact that this game is free is lunacy because I would have happily paid £5+ for this. Download this immediately, pop on some headphones and see (and hear) the game that is so beautiful emotional it will bring a nerdy VR tear to your eye. That sense of flying around and the interactive music really does make it a dream to play.
