Funny Farm VR (Oculus Rift)
Intro: This is no boring farm simulator. Enjoy the gentle serene flight as the Bee in ‘Pollen Pursuit’. Find hidden areas among the corn, or in the barn, fly wherever you want, or just follow the pollen trails in this buzztastic VR experience to play again, & again
Review: Do you remember the 1988 film starring Chevy Chase called “Funny Farm”? No, me neither, but I bring that movie up because much like that movie this game is meant to be a little bit of fun, something to smile about. You get two games to choose from One is called “Pollen Pursuit” where you play the role of a bee. The idea is to fly around collecting all the pollen you can that come in the form of crystals. They are anywhere and everywhere and there are even some daredevil runs to fly through that will require you to have a very steady head.
The other is a “By The Horns” and in this game, you play the part of a bull. The idea is to smash into as many things as you can causing as much damage as you can. The more things you break, the higher the cash score you get at the end of your run. Both games only require head movements, but an Oculus Remote is needed to navigate the start menus. While there are no multiplayer options, it is the sort of game you can pass between friends and do score challenges meaning it does have a life past playing the mini games a few times over.
Verdict: While it is pretty clear that Funny Farm VR is aimed at the younger ones, I still had a lot of fun playing it myself. The graphics look OK, the soundtrack is mildly enjoyable and the gameplay is simple and fun. If you are looking for a game that kids can do a score challenge on at a VR party, this will be perfect in that situation. I could see this getting repetitive quickly, but for the price, I reckon its worth every penny.
