Description: Gooblins is a First-Person Shooter for the HTC Vive that pits the player against never-ending waves of Gooblins. These cute but deadly creatures are hell-bent on using plasma blasts, fireballs, and kamikaze attacks to destroy you. As you progress through waves, Gooblin firepower and defense capability increases. Survive long enough to unlock your machine gun to make quick work of unshielded Gooblins. While mowing them down is satisfying, high scores on the leaderboard can only be achieved by killing Gooblins in the colour order indicated on your weapon display.

Review: I don’t mind playing yet another mindless wave shooter just so long as it brings something new and exciting to the genre. Sadly Gooblins doesn’t and while it does have some cute graphics and an unusual UI it is the same old tired gameplay mechanic. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a terrible game at all, it’s just nothing new or exciting. If you really love our wave shooters the £2.79 is just about justified here, but I would personally wait for a sale. It’s worth a look I suppose, just don’t expect to see anything new here.
