Description: The Technician is a VR action puzzle game about hacking your way through security systems. Usually while being shot at. Break, hack, crack, solder, and logic your way through circuit puzzles. Careful, though; security is onto you and bypassing systems doesn’t get any easier when you’re ducking behind cover. Cross the wrong wire or flip the wrong switch and watchdogs in the circuitry will only make the armed response more aggressive.
Review: I have said time and time again that VR games don’t have to look amazing to feel immersive and ‘The Technician’ is one of those games. It’s part action shooter and part puzzle room game in which you will need to hack a computer while shooting the bad guys, often at the same exact time! While it doesn’t look amazing gameplay is king here and you will soon be getting flustered with the puzzle parts with all the action going on around you. While it doesn’t have the most in-game content it does have a level editor so you can make your own circuit board for yourself to hack. I got this in a 50% off sale for £5.69 and I have to say I was VERY happy with my purchase.
