Description: Meet Bernard. He enjoys long rolls along the beach and candlelit levels but what he loves most is cheese. Unfortunately, the cruel developers at Meerkat Gaming placed his favourite treat at the end of a series of complex mazes and he needs your help to find it.
Review: Maze Roller is clearly a game not made for VR, but instead has had a VR option bolted onto the side of it. There are 3 game modes and none of them is particularly easy, in fact, some of them are almost impossible, its as if the game wasn’t playtested before its release. I think for what it is the game looks OK, but nothing special and despite the childish theme this is a game that is too hard for adults, let alone the little ones.
But this review is based on the VR gameplay and elements of the game and I can easily tell you that I won’t be recommending this game to anyone thinking of playing it in VR. Not only is it nauseating, but sometimes it is almost impossible to see the game! Then throw on the high price tag of £6.99 and you have a definite Stay Away warning. Maybe this is a better game when played on a 2D screen, but that is not what this review is based on. Definitely one to avoid.
