Description: The well-known ” FishLord” indulges so many people in this 2D sea fishing world that they cannot even extricate themselves. Now HashVR will lead you to experience a real fishing adventure in the virtual underwater world. Through this game, you can have a visual feast with not only gorgeous coral, blackish green seaweed, fish gathering in crowds and groups, but also the ferocious great white whale on the top of the food chain underwater, the legendary squiggle squid and the horror devil fish. They are not that kind of silly fish waiting for you to capture them. You know, their temper is not very good. There’s a great chance that you will be gulped by the shark with no fish at all! The game is divided into 3 game modes, each mode will bring you a totally different experience.
Review: I think most underwater games and experiences look and feel pretty good in VR, but then along came Fancy Fishing VR to prove me wrong. This is little more than a short demo (even though they sell it as a full game) in which you stand on a platform and shot at fish. You also get to duck when a shark comes along, but this is hardly worth mentioning, oh, and you get some lame boss fights. But then again it does look OK and I feel if you get it in a cheap bundle you might enjoy it, but you will be left feeling pretty ripped off if you paid the full £3.99 for this.
