Description: ElectroBeats is a combination of electronic style and the rhythm of the game, you will need to turn your head to control your direction. Strike the notes flying towards you and nod when the purple note approaches.

You might not feel comfortable controlling your direction by turning your head at first, but just imagine you are driving on the road, and you need to look at the desired direction first before you want to change lanes.

Review: Music and VR go together like Scooby and Shaggy. Sure, they need other things to help them to work, but the rest isn’t as important and never has that been truer than in ElectroBeats. With its fast techno/dance music its a head tapper that uses that head tap as an in-game move and while it doesn’t use VR to the max it still a very immersive game and you can easily lose yourself for hours in this game.

Sure, it does rely on you enjoying the type of music they have chosen, but if you do this game is an absolute must. Not too hard to play, but yet it will require you to play each song over and over to get even close to the high scores (which I wish weren’t so unachievable). For just a few quid you can’t go wrong with this, just grab yourself some headphones, sit down in your favourite chair and let your Gear VR take you away to a world where music and visuals are not two separate things, but one thing that makes you not only hear the beat of the music, but also feel it.
