Description: Destroy the colossal mothership looming over the planet and save your homeworld! With a fleet of high-tech starfighters at your disposal, take on a series of suicidal missions to destroy the alien invader from the inside. Take down reactors, collect sensitive data, and avoid lethal defences as you manoeuvre through the vents of the enemy vessel at near light-speed velocity – you are the last hope of your people!

Review: There are a couple of things you need to get used to almost straight away if you really want to make this game as enjoyable as possible. The first is that there is no outside spaceship/dogfighting style to had here, there are only the indoor sections. And the 2nd is getting used to the head and controller movements.  But get used to those two things early on and the fun will just keep on coming. With the unusual head movement linked to the ship movement, you will sadly look like an absolute loon playing this game, but that is from the outside. Inside VR, you will be having the time of your life playing this. Bobbing up and down and round and round it is a laugh a minute when you play it.

While the outdoor split screen looks amazing there is not a whole lot to see in this game which might disappoint some people hoping for an all-out space shooter. This is a game of quick head movements, plus good head and hand coordination as you use the controller to boost. With lots of missions and some very tricky sections, you will be head weaving for some time to come.  It might not look the most amazing space game running in VR, but beauty is only skin deep as they say and take a little look deeper into this game and you will soon discover just how much fun it can be. It’s even a laugh watching a friend play it and that makes it worth the price of the download on its own.
