Description: Drawing inspiration from saturated, hectic, and skill-based arcade games new and old, including games like Burning Force, Border Down, and DARIUSBURST, Horizon Vanguard is a VR action game that aims to combine the speed, focus, and density of arcade shooting games with the immersion and input capabilities of modern VR technology. Use your hovercycle to dodge enemy fire and attack armoured ground targets while taking aim with your pistol to destabilize and destroy aerial foes! Use your radar to get your bearings when overwhelmed!

Review: It has to be said, with HORIZON VANGUARD there is something that is very much a nod towards the classic Sega game ‘Space Harrier’, and no, it isn’t just the low-poly graphics. The gameplay feels loose and fast, while still being controllable and smooth. This is a game for retro-gamers, for people who spent their pocket money in the arcades up and down the lands. It’s not going to be for everyone, in fact, some might find it overpriced and low-quality, but not me. I waited far too long for this game to come out and now it is here I feel it was worth the wait. OK, so I don’t think it’s worth the full asking price of £11.39, but I would pay half that for sure.
