Description: Glide enchanted paper planes across a desolate fantasy landscape and hit distant targets to bring life back to the world. Use your planes to rejuvenate the entire valley and cure the sickness that has left it barren and decayed.
Enjoy the perfectly simulated feel of throwing a paper plane in VR, but with the addition of being able to gently steer your plane mid-flight. Eight lusciously designed levels will test your skills with increasing difficulty, occluded targets and cross-winds, but there is no game over so you can enjoy the challenge at your own leisure. Gradually work your way through the valley to unearth the mysterious and wondrous history of the land.
Review: Before I start, I just want to say that a lot of the negative reviews for this game have been on the broken Gear VR version. The Oculus Go version works fine. So now that is out of the way, let us get on with it. This is a relaxing paper plane throwing game that lets you explore colourful alien worlds and all at your own pace. You can keep going forward, or go backwards and despite its childish graphics and peaceful tone it is still surprisingly challenging to get the plane to hit certain things and will take some practice. I’m not sure on the total number of worlds this game has, but having played it for a few hours I can tell you it is more than enough to justify the asking price. Well worth a download and perfect for people of all ages.
