Joy Lab (Gear VR)
Intro: It’s every child’s dream to have a personal playhouse. A place to play and experiment, a place where imagination reigns and creativity shines. Joy Lab makes this dream come true. It’s a virtual laboratory where you can build machines, set up experiments, and launch fireworks, all while solving fun puzzles. In Joy Lab, breaking stuff is not allowed—it’s mandatory!
Verdict: While we have indeed seen many other physics-based puzzles games before this in VR Joy Lab brings a new level of fun to the VR puzzle genre. Sadly there really isn’t any tutorial to talk about, so you really are left to your own devices to work out what to do which at the start will cause you a load of unnecessary frustration. But battle through it and take the time to understand how the game works and you will find a fantastic puzzle game that will capture your attention for hours. It looks great and once you understand how it works you will realise its pretty clever and despite what you first think it’s clear the developer has taken a lot of time to make sure its both easy to play and still a challenge at the same time. For a few quid, this is well worth a download and should last you for a few hours at least, even if you have the cleverest puzzle solving mind.
