Description: Glider Island VR is a skill based hang gliding game where your objective is to collect as many hoops as you can within 10 minutes. You must keep airborne by using your rocket booster attached to your glider! You can add rocket fuel by flying through the blue spirals randomly placed around each map. You must plot your coarse carefully and watch out for the obstacles each map throws your way. You have limited booster so be careful with how much you use and when you choose to collect the blue spirals!

Review: While there isn’t a whole lot to ‘Glider Island’ what there is, makes you feel free as a bird and keeps you immersed till the 10-minute timer is up. This is, of course, a hand-gliding game and the idea is to fly through as many rings as you can in 10 minutes and if you are really clever you will fly through all of them in that set time! And on top of that, there is even a silver and gold award for finishing all rings in a set time! If you ask me, this game is best played with the gamepad rather than the touch controllers as it feels more immersive. OK, so this game is far from perfect and there is only one island, but you could always do a score challenge with friends and family to eke out a little more gameplay time, but it does what it needs to and if played right should offer you value for money even at when it costs £5.59!
