Description: An asymmetric VR game where you will have to cooperate in order to solve puzzles and escape from the void. Discover a new kind of VR game with full asymmetric cooperation. One of the players is lost in the void and has to rely on the other to make his way out.
Review: On paper maybe ‘Escape From The Void’ sounded like a good idea for a game. It’s a multiplayer-only game in which one player (the none VR player) has to move blocks into position for the other player (the one in VR) to complete a task, or shine a light, or tell the VR player where to go. With 40+ levels this game should have been worth the download, but the basic nature of the game means there really isn’t a lot here at all, especially when it comes to the graphics. OK, in VR it’s not terrible, but for the player using the screen, we are talking 8-bit style graphics! While this game has some good ideas the high price and basic nature of it means I don’t feel I can recommend it. Maybe if you are going to host a VR party you could give it a go, but otherwise, I don’t see anyone enjoying this at all.
