Description: In the future of 2270, the Earth was a multi-ethnic planet inhabited by various intellectuals. Migrants from all over the universe have gathered on Earth, which enjoys near-infinite resources and energy with the development of technology. The humanitarian Earth coalition government accommodates them all and helps them settle on Earth. However, contrary to the government’s intention, the cities where ordinary citizens lived were increasingly complaining and conflicting with them. In the city, a town in which the same tribe lived separately, and the boundaries of the town were divided into large and small disputes every day.
Review: ‘Space Sprinter VR’ is a weird manga style running game that is very much a cheap clone of ‘Sprint Vector’. All you have to do is pick from one of the four characters, then race on one of the 3 tracks. You do this by moving your motion controllers up and down as fast as you can, this causes you to run int he direction you are facing. Hence the reasons it is better to play standing as you will be doing a lot of turning. It doesn’t look horrendous I suppose, but it is very low-poly and janky making the gameplay very nauseating. If this game was just a quid or two I might have excused many of its flaws, but it costs £7.19 and it is not worth even half that price. This is one of those games you are better off getting as part of a cheap bundle with other games, rather than getting on its own.
