Description: Inbound brings the fast-play action of missile defence arcade games of the ’80s into the modern era! You are a defence commander on FOUR distant asteroid colonies, tasked with protecting the mines from saboteur competitors. You tower above the colony in VR, carefully timing volleys of phaser fire to destroy the inbound projectiles, as well as defending against ground assaults from lumbering mechs and attacking hordes of enemy spacecraft! When things get too crazy, use the time distortion button to slow things down. But use it wisely…you have a limited supply! A steady aim, quick reflexes, and keeping cool under pressure are all critical if you want to survive the onslaught. Inbound is non-stop, 2-handed arcade action in a beautifully immersive VR landscape that will truly make you feel you’ve been to other worlds.
Review: When you are only paying £2.09 for a game you really can’t expect much in terms of graphics and game content, but I am pleased to tell you Inbound is a rare exception to that rule. It looks great and I have to say feels amazing to play. While little more than a modern-day VR reimagining of the classic arcade game Missile Command it is still a great game, especially for the price. It looks great, the action can get crazy at times and you easily become immersed in its gameplay. For the price, this is one game that is definitely worth picking up even if you don’t like retro gaming.
