Description: Polynomial 2 is an amazing visual candy which tends to be a space shooter and a music visualizer. Immersive on-screen, mind-blowing in VR. Enter an endless universe of stars with glowing fractal nebulae that animate to your music as you engage in space combat. Use rockets, lasers, even healing flower fractals as you rid this strange, beautiful land from invaders in Polynomial 2.

Review: Polynomial 2 is basically two different things. First and foremost it is a music visualiser with some pretty sweet effects to look at while your own music plays in the background. In fact, it really is one of the better music visualisers I have seen in VR! And then mixed in with the trippy visuals is a retro-style game like an arcade space shooter only in VR. The biggest problem is that both things don’t really gell-well with each other. In fact, the game makes the visualiser look bad and the visualiser makes the game look even worse! Then on top of that is the high price that is really the final kick in the grave for this interactive experience. There is simply no way to justify the price and to be honest I would be struggling if that price was just £1.99. There isn’t enough here to do or see other than a pretty good music visualiser, but you can get those for free in many other apps.
