Description: Hover Bots VR lets you experience the freedom of flying like never before! Hop on your hoverboard and fly through the city chasing robotic flying birds. Experience what Harry Potter felt during Quidditch. Your goal is to fly around the city and catch robotic birds with your web gun.
Review: The idea of ‘Hover Bots VR’ is pretty simple. Catch the little yellow snitch like bot as fast as you can, or before the timer runs out. This might sound simple, but you are only given rudimentary knowledge of where it is and once you get close to it they will shoot off into the city landscape making a pretty fun chance soon starts. While it is amazing graphically it does more than a good enough job of making you believe you are flying above a city. Yes it is a simple game and yes it does get repetitive rather quickly, but I still feel you can get your money’s worth here. After a few hours chasing the bots around you will soon think that £3.99 asking price isn’t so bad at all. I for one loved it and thought it was a lot like Harry Potter meets Superman.
