Description: Break free from your room and take combat to the skies! HVR is a VR experiment inspired by Marvel’s Iron Man designed to push the boundaries of VR locomotion by providing a way for players to experience free flight and 360-degree aerial combat without a cockpit.
HVR puts you inside of an armoured suit and straps jetpacks to your hands that let you fly, dodge, and shoot in all directions! Live your dreams of being a superhero and take on a horde of enemy fighter jets that won’t give up without a fight.
Review: While it is important to note that this is free, this was also supposed to be a demo of a full game that has never materialised. But in short, HVR put you into a jetpack and told you to shoot anything that moves in space, kind of like Iron Man, only without the fancy graphics. It’s just a shame that this was never made into a full game as it is full to play, but of course, it is over far too quickly. I still think this is worth a look, even if it doesn’t become a full game as it is a blast. At least you can try this for yourself without putting any cash down!
