Description: Your mine has broken through and opened a portal to another universe and the Aliens on the other side are going to take full advantage of your hard work, they’re coming through and stealing your crystals. You need to stop them! With three levels of intensity and the Aliens able to spawn through the portal in time with pumping music can you keep up with the battle, stop your enemies stealing your goods and get a high score. Who is the best amongst you and your friends? Some of the Aliens are carrying explosives to blast more crystal from the rocks, shoot those aliens first and they’ll blow up all of the aliens around them!
This single-player VR Shooting Gallery game has three levels of difficulty. From your static vantage position, it’s all on you to defend your mine from being stripped by the invading forces. This fast-paced, single-player, loud and energetic game is a great entry experience for new VR users at events or tradeshows were needing to know the full range of handset controller functions is not required. This is not a full multi-level, exploratory game for seasoned VR Users, it’s fun, fast-paced and simple.
Review: What I like about ‘MINE!’ is that it goes all out. There is no holding your hand, ease you in gently, it chucks a tonne of enemies at you and gives you a gun and some hard music to listen to while you shoot for your life from the word go. Sure, it’s only one level and it is little more than a poor quality wave shooter, but I feel this one is worth a look. Sometimes you just want a little bit of free fun and MINE! offers just that. Why not try it yourself and let me know in the comments below what you thought of it.
