Description: Have you ever actually run while playing runners? Or you just sit and watch your character run on a smartphone screen without burning any single calorie? Now you have a chance to experience something completely new, run your character through troubles, while actually run with your VR headset on. Run, evade obstacles and throw your weapons to everything your eye catches. Sometimes it would be a policeman, sometimes — a neighbour’s car. But what the most important is — you would have to run. Run for your life. Challenge yourself.
Review: Hot Runback – VR Runner is a ‘running on the spot’ game that does a good job of making exercise fun. You can be running down the field in an American football game avoiding quarterbacks or you can be running down the road throwing fish at anyone trying to stop you. While I don’t think this game is worth £3.99 due to the lack of content I do feel it is worth a look. It looks OK and is a lot of fun to play. But it does get very boring quite quickly and you will soon realise there is not a lot to it. But it’s still fun to play for a while at least.
