Description: KENDAMVR Is the world’s first virtual reality Kendama game! What is a Kendama? The Kendama is a traditional Japanese skill toy dating back to the 1700s which has recently gained a huge following worldwide. Comprising of a ball, three cups and a spike on which to catch it, the Kendama may seem simple at first but offers near-unlimited scope for play styles and tricks. KENDAMVR Brings the world of Kendamas to virtual reality for the first time! Practice tricks and catches in a number of relaxing zen environments, or test your skills against various time trial and trick ladder challenges!
Review: KENDAMVR – Virtual Reality Kendama is little more than a virtual cup and ball game. To many people, it will be very basic and incredibly boring, but to some, it is a traditional Japanese skill that people study their whole lives and this app gives them the ability to practice their skills. While the app seems to do an OK job I have a feeling that it won’t be good enough for Kendama experts. But maybe someone new to kendama will enjoy this, but I doubt it especially at an eye-watering £9.99.
