Description: Meet Howard Lovecraft, a boy who’s already battled Elder Gods and nameless horrors. He now must face his greatest challenge yet, school. In the VR game you can join Howard on magical, spooky adventures in the world of Miskatonic University. You must help him complete a set of magical tasks in the classroom… and more! Do you have the power? Shout your spells. Miskatonic is a VR magic voice-controlled shooter, with a unique style of casting spells and fighting the darkness. The player will find themselves in Howard’s classroom at Miskatonic as they tackle spells and monsters with their very own powers. There are prominent tones of problem-solving and exploration within the experience

Review: ‘MISKATONIC’ is a free, but very simple magic casting game in which you have to use magic words to produce one of three swells. The first levitate things to throw at the enemy, the 2nd is a shield and the first is a magic fireball. While the voice commands do just about work there is no training or anything so you learn how to say those words, so it is only a matter of trial and error. While I do hate to put down anything that is free there really isn’t enough here to make it worthwhile. Maybe if there was a high score and button presses instead of voice commands, but until then I will have to give this the thumbs down.
