Time Machine VR
Intro: You are a time traveller tasked with exploring the Jurassic era and the creatures that once ruled the prehistoric oceans. Use advanced tech to track, examine, and discover scientifically accurate creatures like mosasaurs, livyatans, and megalodons. If you are a paleontology buff, beat the game and check out Exploration Mode to unlock more about the creatures you encountered in Story Mode.
Review: Have you ever wanted to visit Jurassic Park? The Time Machine VR might well be the closest thing you will ever get to seeing a real dinosaur. When I say real, believe me when I tell you that some of the underwater creatures look very real indeed. Even your time pod / ship looks impressive! But it is the freedom to move your own ship and play at your own pace that really makes this game stand out from the rest.
You can spend hours just swimming with turtles (until they get eaten) or slashing around with giant prehistoric fish. You do get set back on track if you wonder off a little too much, but apart from that you do feel free to explore and examine your surroundings and completing the micro missions you are given.
Verdict: The sounds are believable and good quality and graphics look amazing, but it does have to be said that the gameplay pace might be a little slow, but that just seems to make it feel even more realistic. It also has to be said that this app would be perfect for school children because of its educational element but be warned, things do get rather…messy when it comes to feeding time. Not the biggest VR adventure, but one that is well worth going on and gives you a nice feeling of being truly immersive, put simply it leaves you feeling like you really have gone back in time.
