Hypercade (Gear VR)
Intro: Hypercade brings a modern spin to nostalgic arcade action in VR, with simple to use controls paired with classic arcade challenge. Play four incredible arcade classics completely hands-free or with a controller. Brought to you by acclaimed VR game developer Hidden Path Entertainment, Hypercade includes four arcade games, each with its own unique take on fan favourites of yesteryear.
Verdict: Hypercade is a collection of four classic arcade games (not named like the originals for copyright reasons) given a 3D makeover as well as a playable Halloween theme. While the controls are a little bit fiddly to say the least I did still have a lot of fun playing it. With its great looking themes and fantastic 3D depth it really does look like classic arcade games coming alive in front of your eyes. Sure it got some control issues, sure it has a few glitches and I would even go so far as to say it is a little overpriced. But if you love your retro games, you will find a lot to love here. VR and retro gaming! Who would have thought they would work so well together?!?
