Review: ‘FamilyWorldRoam’ is a collection of 6 experiences from a slow hotair balloon flight, to a giant Ferris wheel and even some drawing. If this was free it might have been worth a look, but it most definitely isn’t worth the £4.79 asking price. It looks OK at times I suppose, but that is the only praise I can give it. The first main problem is that the developer describes this as an app that “doesn’t need complex operation”, but it is an utter shit-show to move about. There are far better things to show people new to VR that doesn’t need any movement so when this app fails to do even that it makes it kind of pointless.
