Description: Experience fast-paced VR combat without sacrificing comfort. This VR first-person shooter has you defeat enemies using weapons you find scattered around the environment as you travel to the level’s end objective. Move by throwing orbs that teleport you to the place where they land. Levels offer little cover from enemy attacks, resulting in an active combat experience with constant movement.

Use your inventory to store items and equip them instantly. Weapons display their remaining ammo, so you always know how close you are to reloading. You have a limited amount of health which is displayed on your hands and you can heal by using heart items. Some levels are boss battles where you will need to defeat a very powerful enemy by finding and exploiting its weakness.

Review: While ‘Strings’ isn’t going to win any awards when it comes to graphics it does at least have fun gameplay and for a small indie game, I always say that is all you should ask for. Its an action shooter which to be fair is a real challenge as the enemies come from all around you. While the low-poly graphics are sure to put a lot of people off trying this game I promise you it is just one of those games you will find yourself getting into. Sure, it could do with being a fraction of the current £7.19 asking price, but there is always a demo to try before you buy. Get for the right price and you should enjoy it even more than I did paying full price.
