Description: Smashing Healthy VR is a fitness game for those people who are willing to be healthy. Punch the boxes that come randomly from the back of the stage with your favourite music. Keeping the decent power of the punch makes the stage to change dramatically. There is no boss that sits at the end of the stage, or there is no online high score competition. All you face is your weight and health. You may imagine the person that you don’t like while smashing the box to relief the stress. Alright, enough said, smash the box if you want to be healthy!

Review: If there is one thing I can’t take away from ‘Smashing Healthy VR’ it is the fact that it is the CRAZIEST looking music/rhythm game you will ever play. If fact, I swear it was trying to hypnotise me at one point! But as with 99% of the games in this genre it misses the beat when it comes to gameplay (quite literally). Without getting too music-nerd on everyone, the “beat” of music is something that is not set with any certainty, it is more a matter of opinion to the person listening to that music, so when a game tells you to “use your own music” it instantly means this game is a fail as without propper beat-mapping there is no gameplay. The few songs there is seem OK (not great) but that isn’t anywhere near enough to turn this work of art into a game worth owning, especially one that costs £15.49. If this was a small fraction of that price I would give it a go, but its simply not worth much more than a single fiver.
