Description: RollerGirls from Beyond brings side scroller action into VR. Skate, Jump, Ride and Stomp your way to save the Cows of the planet Bovina from Dr. Creepy and his Alien Army. It is great for those new to VR or if you are just looking for a longer, sit down and play experience in VR. Each of the four Roller Skating Space Angels has a unique set of skills that are acquired over time, swap quickly between each character to take out the enemy who is weak to that attack, use a combination of skills to defeat certain enemies. This game is designed to be different and difficult, it has a certain flow that is quickly learned but constantly changing as you progress.
Review: Of all the game genres that I never thought would work in VR it has to be a 2D/2D side-scrolling beat’em up. But yet RollerGirls From Beyond proves that it does kind of work! The Vr is much more of a bolt-on option than made for VR but it still works pretty well and sees you playing the game in a cinema sort of style. I like my retro side-scrolling action games and this is as good as they get. Some might think it is a little too retro to be enjoyable, but I for one loved it. I think it is well worth the money, but I do understand that this is just one of those games some will love and others will hate.
