Description: The entity known as M.O.A.I. has attacked, and the fate of the world is in your hands! You have been chosen to compete in the most diabolical game of atomic paddleball ever to grace the 3rd dimension. Use your paddle to direct the Proton, an energy ball with awesome power and the only thing that can destroy the M.O.A.I. core! If the action gets too fast, use the Space-Time Dilator to turn a sure miss into a deadly volley! Will you be able to conquer over 50 levels and beat M.O.A.I. at his own game?
Review: Proton Pulse Plus is a VR take on classic retro games like Arkanoid and Breakout, basically a brick bashing game. Moving the shuttle pad via your look you have to bat the ball back towards the playing area. But there is all sorts of other things going on and over 50 levels and conquer. If you like your games to have a classic style of gameplay, this will be right up your street.
To put it short, this is a 3D VR retro game that has fast music and fast gameplay. You will need a fast neck to keep the ball in play and an even stronger neck to get the ball to curve and spin. While basic in design and looks it can also be a lot of fun and if you have a score challenge with a few friends it could be a good laugh. Just don’t expect too much for your money and you will be fine.
