Description: How long can you last? Freefall is a minimal arcade game about falling endless through a world that keeps twisting and morphing around you. Sit back, relax, and turn up the volume for some mind-boggling, hair-tearing, patience-wearing “Game Over” action. Dive in head-first and get ready for the real party.

The goal is simple: don’t hit anything. But it may not be that simple, as the world starts closing in around you, pulsating in time with the music while simultaneously starting to pulsate to the beat of the music. Inspired by games like Terry Cavanagh’s Super Hexagon, Freefall will take you to a surprisingly zen-like state of mind as you navigate through its endless canals.

Review: I have to say that am always surprised at what works in VR and what doesn’t. Freefall is one of those games that on paper will sound like utter trash, but in VR you are oddly immersed by it to the point of the game puts you into some sort of trance-like state. Don’t get me wrong here, only a fool would pay £3.99 for this, but if you got this weird, blob avoidance game as part of a bundle or very cheap you will find yourself getting into it. Games don’t get much more simple than this, but yet… it’s still worth a look!
