Description: Professor Chuckenhope is a first person virtual reality knife throwing game, set in a victorian style theatre. Progress through the acts by hitting targets without hitting anyone! There are five acts, consisting of varying style (and difficulty) boards. Should you hit anyone, you will be jailed. You must then find a way out, and make your way back to the theate, where you can re-start the act. This is not as easy as it sounds, as the local law enforcement are not fans of the professor, and will do all they can to get you back in jail. Press the triggers and swing your arms to walk, use the right thumbstick or right touchpad to turn. Picking up is done by holding the grab button. You can also climb by grabbing and pulling yourself up / along. To throw, grab, making a throwing motion, and release grab. The velocity of the knife is defined by the force of your real-world throw.

Review: Professor Chuckenhope is probably the first VR knife throwing game I have played. What I liked most about this game is that it does offer a real challenge and at times I found myself getting rather frustrated. While the game looks good and has enough content to justify its own asking price I did find it was a little too hard for its own good with myself finishing many of the levels with a large dose of luck rather than anything else. For something different and something challenging this is well worth a look, but it could do with a small price drop if you ask me.
