Description: This is an experimental HTC VIVE third person shooter! You wake up in the desert and find yourself surrounded by some not too friendly ghouls. Blast your way out with your twin blasters! A unique control method lets you control a violent little action figure’s arms and shoot Ghouls (not Zombies!) right in their dumb looking faces!
Review: What I like most about ‘Puppet Blaster’ is not the fact that it is a fun little free game, but the fact that it is clever. You play the role of a puppet master controlling your little shooting Sherif like puppet. While it does take a little getting used to I was soon moving the little puppet around like it was 2nd nature. While content is thin on the ground and the graphics a little basic the game is a nice use of VR and feels fun to play for a short while. For a freebie, this is well worth a look.
