Description: Holopoint is pure archery madness. Fight your way through waves of responsive targets, samurai, and highly dangerous ninjas – all while drawing, nocking, and shooting your arrows as quickly as possible. Holopoint is a skill-based game where progression is based on player skill and training rather than unlocks. Like many arcade-style games, personal progress and a high score are the goals. There are two game modes: Original, and Time-Trial.

The original game mode offers sixty waves to progress through. Targets are introduced as groups of waves are completed. This mode quickly becomes difficult and requires an active mindset. Holopoint is designed so that only a few determined archers will reach the last wave. Time-Trial allows the player to define a subset of targets and a play-time, during which points are awarded for targets hit, and taken away when a target hits back. This game mode offers a more casual and controlled experience and is used by many as a timed workout.

Review: If you like your VR games to be physical Holopoint is for you. While little more than a basic looking archery game with on-point bow mechanics it will make you run around your play space like you are auditioning for a Robin Hood movie. This is not a game that allows you to stand still and shoot, this game makes your move, duck, lean, shoot, turn and just about anything else that will make you sweat. I really did enjoy playing this and thought it was a great game, but for the full asking price you don’t get a lot of gameplay depth, so do wait for a sale before making a purchase.
