Description: Order fruits and vegetables. Put them to the stand at your choice and serve the costumers. Calculate from the price and the weight of the fruit that how much does the actual costumer have to pay. You don’t want to calculate? That’s not a problem, there’s a possibility for it, too. Boost your small enterprise to thriving business. Be careful, the costumers are watching you! If you don’t give them what they ask for or you mislead them maybe they never come again. Choose from more difficulty levels. Youngs and elders equally enjoy it. Have fun!

Review: Have you ever walked through your local market listening to all the fruit and veg stall holders flaunt their wares with loud shouts of deals? And as a follow-up question, have you ever stopped for a moment to listen to them and thought to yourself what a wonderful life they have and that you wished you could also become a fruit and veg stall holder? No, me neither, but that is what this game is all about. From starting off with just some simple fruits and vegetables to making a killing selling just about everything you can name.

The idea is to buy the stock at ‘X’ price and sell it at ‘Y’ price making a little bit on top of each item sold, thus running a successful business. Once I had turned on the ‘Auto Calculate’ I was getting into it a lot easier. Using the Oculus Remote made things nice and simple and I could easily navigate both the till menus as well as my stall that surrounds it.

What might put people off this app is that this is a simulation at heart, not an arcade game. It’s designed to give people a feeling of what it is like to own and run a fruit and vegetable stall. Buying and selling stock as well as getting the stock the customers need is something that some kids (and some adults) will get really value from. For most of us at home, this might be one to miss. But I do see this app having educational value. Using it the right place, by the right people, this app will help people run a business as well as improve maths skills and that has to be worth something to someone. Just not your average VR user.
