Description: In Fat Foods, the goal is to eat as much as possible. (Multiplayer Mode is under development) The following features will be included in multiplayer, two players utilize the HMD and a PC monitor to go head-to-head. Armed with a frying pan and spatula, the second player takes on the role of a giant, they must keep the other player from reaching the finish line. In the Mall level, the second player becomes a huge monster, causing havoc to the environment.

Review: Fat Foods is one of those games that is weird to explain, but simple to play. There are multiplay ways to play this game. The first way to play this game is on a 2D screen and as a fat guy, you can roll around collecting all the food in the level (there are 100 food items to collect). Then there is the VR mode in which you play a giant entity trying to stop the AI from fro rolling around collecting the food. You get a spatular and a saucepan to do this, so you end up flipping and poking the character around to rush them off things. Then the final mode is local multiplayer in which you can play up for 4 people which I can only presume will be 3 rolling around and one in VR.

It’s weird, it looks good and for a short while it is a lot of fun. But sadly the game is too easy to poke or flip the rolling character off making the multiplayer mode no fun at all. It’s still worth picking up for a quid or two, but I certainly wouldn’t pay anything more than that. A great effort by the developers to bring something new and fun, but it doesn’t quite work.
