Description: TINERTIA is an action-platformer set on a dying planet. The main protagonist – Weldon – finds himself trapped on this world. But Weldon doesn’t plan to stick around. He must climb a vast expanse of ruins and tackle deadly sentient machines if he hopes to survive.
TINERTIA features a unique Twinstick Movement mechanic that lets the player rocket-jump and rapidly gain speed. The game’s 3D environments are stunning and intricate, especially in Virtual Reality, where players can truly immerse themselves in the world. Tinertia’s unique mechanics deliver an exciting mix of methodical platforming and fast-twitch shooting.
Review: While it is clear Tinertia wasn’t made for VR it still works really well in it. They have taken some time to think about the rotation between levels and the 3D in VR makes each level look amazing. While this is far from being the easiest game to play it is still one that I enjoy playing. It has a classic platform game feel to it and that is no bad thing. If you own a gamepad and a VR headset this is well worth a look, especially for the price.
