Description: You’re on a plank, 80 stories high. Knees shaky, palms sweaty. You have a choice. Do you walk or do you freeze? Richie’s Plank is the only VR experience that lets you clone any real-world plank into the virtual world for 2X the immersion.

Review: If you want to prove that VR can sometimes feel terrifyingly real this is the app to put people into. Even if you don’t think you have a fear of heights this app will give it to you. It looks amazing, its a joy to watch people play and even features some mini-games to give the app a little bit of longevity. But sadly I still don’t think it is worth the current asking price. If you intend to introduce a lot of people to VR maybe it will be worth it, but for most people, a few goes on the plank and a couple of plays of the mini-game and you will soon find yourself bored of it.
