Description: Become a skee-ball master with Skee Ball Simulator, a realistic skee-Ball machine for the Oculus Go! Just tap the touchpad to set your ball placement, spin, and power, then watch as it launches down the lane. Keep going until you run out of skee-balls, but remember – the higher you score, the more tickets you earn!
Review: Skee Ball Simulator is pretty much what its name suggests. It’s a virtual Skee Ball like those most of us have seen in arcades all over the world. Sure, there isn’t a whole lot to this game, but it does do all it has well. It looks good, has great ball physics and even has a ball shop to spend all the little tickets you earn to unlock more textures for your Skee-balls! But sadly that is pretty much all it is. No multiplayer element (unless you play via passing the headset) no change of scenery, just a Skee-ball machine and a lot of balls to unlock. But for less than a few quid, it might well be worth getting just to pass some time. Sure, it won’t hold your interest for long, but people who love the original arcade game will enjoy this virtual one.
