Description: To give you a thrilling and strategic gameplay experience, we give you SummonerVR, a virtual reality game which is the first of its kind. In Petra, an archaeology student disturbs a holy forbidden site while exploring sacred items present in the dungeon and gets trapped in the dungeon. In the haunting and killing depths of dungeons, you are faced with an enemy. You must protect your life and get back out by strategic and tactical “summoning” of the allies available.
After facing the enemy and defeating them in the first dungeon, you will come to know that you are thrown back in time by the wrath of the undead. To return back to time, you must defeat the monsters that will kill you and gather Intel and items to protect yourself from harm’s way and safely get back to where you belong. Along the way by protecting your life you will know facts and gather knowledge, play strategically and win exciting and mind-numbing battles backed up by an exciting storyline and real facts.
Review: SummonerVR (alpha) is a mix of game genres like RPG, strategy and action, but also a nostalgic nod to older games. At the time of this review, there are only 16 characters which consist of 8 ally character and 8 enemy characters. While I see what the developer was going for with this game I feel it falls a little short of just about everything. It doesn’t have the depth nor the quality to be a good RPG and it has almost zero action and adventure. It’s just an idea for a game that seems to cost £5.19 with no sign of more content coming. Until there is a lot more content I do suggest you give this a miss, or maybe wait until it becomes free.
