Review: The Twiggles VR is a game that splits me down the middle. On the one side, you have a cutesy Platform/Puzzle game what looks good and is surprisingly fun to play and on the other, you have a ridiculous price tag that makes it almost impossible to recommend. The idea of the game is simple, to interact with creatures called “Twiggles” who seem to really like bananas. You wave the banana in front of them and they just seem to follow it. You get them to collect stars, push buttons and each the goal line. For a while it was fun, but it soon gets boring and the lack of variety doesn’t help either. If you see this for a quid or two it might be worth a look, but I certainly wouldn’t pay anything more than that.
