Description: In Slam, you control only one thing – gravity. All you have to do is get the glowing energy crate to the goal – simple enough until we throw in barrels, sliders, switches, magnets, teleporters and a whole host of other mechanics that turn difficult puzzles into near-impossible ones. Take on the challenge of solving over 50 levels – and once you’ve solved them, try the tougher challenge of solving them in the smallest number of moves. If you have a HTC Vive, Slam is also playable in VR – walk around the puzzles to try and understand them better, or for a fun new perspective, use the – and = keys to make yourself bigger or smaller.

Review: Slam is a classic puzzle game given a modern-day and of course also a VR makeover. But right from the off, you notice that this was a game that wasn’t made for VR. There are times when you will have to get down on your hands and knees just to see what is going on and you will also need plenty of playroom. While I did have fun playing some of the puzzles it soon got really repetitive which kind of sucked the fun out of it a little bit.

With 50 puzzles to solve, I still feel this is worth a look despite its VR shortcomings. It is only £2.79 and I reckon you will easily get your money’s worth from this game for that price. While certainly nothing amazing it will hold your attention for a little while, especially if you enjoy puzzle games anyway.
