Description: Hover Skate is a physics based hoverboard simulator for VR. Use your hands to manoeuvre the hoverboard to pull off hundreds of various skateboarding tricks.

Review: First up, I have to give credit to the developers of this game for trying something different in VR. However, just saying the words ‘Skateboarding in VR’ should have been enough to tell them how it was going to go down. As a fan of the many Tony Hawk game, I know what a good skateboarding game feels like to play and this is not it. The controls are simply not intuitive and the constant forward motion is going to give most people VR sickness. I could go on with the smaller problems like the levels being too small and the £6.99 price tag being way too high, but I won’t. Kudos for a good effort, but in my personal opinion, this is one game to stay away from.
