Description: Welcome to the Gunball League. Your job is simple: get those balls through the rings in order to get the highest score possible. Oh…and one more thing – you’ve got to shoot to win! This ain’t basketball or dodgeball. This is Gunball, baby! You won’t score any points unless you shoot that ball through a ring. So grab a ball and pull that trigger!
Gunball is easy to pick up and play, making it the perfect first-time game for players new to VR. However even seasoned VR pros will find Gunball is deep and intense, so players can immerse themselves in the experience and pull off insane trick shots on the way to racking up the highest scores in the world! Can you get to the top of the global leaderboard?
Review: Gunball is a weird game for sure. Its a basic static shooter, but you have to shoot balls, that you are throwing in order to get a score. It’s like chucking a can in the air and seeing if you can shoot it before it hits the floor. There are two themed environments which are a sports stadium and an ‘explosive rainbow volcano’ and you just need to get the best score you can. At least you could do a score challenge with friends I suppose, but I still don’t think it is worth the £5.79 asking price. But if you can grab it for a quid or less you might appreciate it more than I did.
