Description: Sweaty Palms is a competitive action VR game in which players fight over objectives using a number of movement and combat abilities. It employs a unique, fast-paced, and natural movement system. Players are legless (so the floor is at waist level) and use their arms to climb along and fling from surfaces, including the floor. Abilities allow for visceral and exciting movement styles that all feel comfortable, including rocket-hand flight, swinging, bird flight, riding dragons, and more. Players build custom decks from which they draw ability cards during the game. Infinite deck permutations and complimentary team deck combos allow for endless creativity and novelty in defeating your opponents.
Review: I have to say there are some good ideas in ‘Sweaty Palms’ many of them taken from some of the best VR games, but sadly it doesn’t quite pull it off. While the actual gameplay like the climbing, hunting and shooter feels good the game is far too basic looking for its own good. Sadly that is not this games biggest problem. Its main issue is the total lack of online players which given that it is an online-only game means this game is sadly dead in the water. But I will still give credit to the developer for coming up with something fun to play and slightly different to everything else.
