Description: “Purgatory Overkill” mixes a shooter and a tower-defense in a VR environment. Play as a member of the elite group “OverKill Unit” and shoot your way into hordes of enemies, from tiny skeletons to gigantic demons, to protect interdimensional portals which are at the same time your way home and a way for the monsters to invade your world! You can count on your military arsenal to fight, be it loads of different weapons or automatic turrets that you can build around the map to avoid getting overwhelmed. But you will have to protect them as much as they are protecting you. How long can you last?

Review: ‘Purgatory Overkill’ is a pretty traditional VR tower defence game. You get a small number of different turrets like machine gun and laser, plus a handful of guns for yourself to fire with all of which are small firearms. The gameplay is shallow with nothing new at all and the graphics are OK at best, but it is the lack of variety and indeed content as a whole that really puts me off recommending this. If this game was just a quid or two I would be telling you to go for it, but when it costs £19.99 full-price there is simply no way I can recommend it. This is a good attempt at a cheap indie tower defence game, only it’s not cheap.
