Description: Rockochet is a VR Arcade-style game with two very simple mechanics: move and bounce. Your player’s shield launches an energy ball that knocks ore stones from the large space rock. Keep the ball in play by orbiting around and bouncing it back towards the rock. Capture ore stones with your shield for points and upgrades.

Review: Rockochet is a weird game indeed and also rather clever in design. Its basically a brick breaker game, but instead of breaking bricks you are breaking apart giant asteroids. Now, as you might expect the ball bounces off all over the place but this is covered by being able to move around the asteroid with the other hand. So one is the racket the other is the movement controls. While on paper it sounds genius this is a REALLY difficult game to get into and it took me a good hour to get past the first few levels! It’s certainly not worth £15.49, but if this was part of a cheap bundle of games it would be worth a look. It’s odd for sure, but also fun if you are willing to take the time to get into it.
