Description: Tesseract VR is a game where you can have a first-person shooter VR experience. Antic Egypt… Stones coming out of a space shuttle… The idea of the game is to prevent space shuttle from building a massive monument. When you start, choose from the day or night options. Then all you have to do is to put the stones coming from the space shuttle above to an order using the controller. When you create a full line, those lines will disappear. If you cannot destroy the lines the bricks will start going higher and higher. When they reach the space shuttle it means the game is over. You can start a new game and continue the fun. During the game, you can also shoot the mummies walking around with the other controller. This won’t affect your score but it adds to the experience.
Review: Let me describe Tesseract VR from the start for you (there is a reason for this). You start off in a menu that looks like you are in the desert with giant robots and alien spaceships all around you and above you and all you have to do here is click “play” or “tutorial”. But I’m a gamer so I don’t need any stupid tutorial, it’s straight into the game for me! (even if you click on the tutorial, there isn’t a hint of what is to come). So you click “start” and the giant enemy spaceship moves overhead. You get excited as it looks great! It lowers down a platform for what you think will take you up to the ship, but alas no, the platform is for your Tetris blocks to land on. Then disappointment will kill you inside and you might even cry a little bit.
Sure, its a freebie and maybe the best looking classic Tetris game you will ever play, but it’s just that! Its crap, it’s pointless and you will be left wondering why all the effort for a simple game of Tetris. That question I am yet to answer. Try it yourself and understand that I had no idea what type of game it was going into it.
