Description: Strap into a souped up farm tractor with an added rocket engine and a huge flipper on the front, engage in a game of super sized football and hunt your opponents with a huge array of dirty tricks. The fast paced action of Tractorball will leave you breathless with endless game changing play variations and test your reactions to the limit, fusing vehicular ball games with a VR cockpit experience. Use shooting skills with the flipper, develop your teamwork and get creative with any of the numerous dirty tricks to sabotage your opponents’ play or find a cheap shot on goal. Designed exclusively for VR from the cockpit out, the game will find new ways of challenging your eye-hand coordination and spatial orientation skills.

Tractorball is a physics based sports-action game and features four course layouts in five game worlds for a total of twenty levels, offering co-op and 2v2 multiplayer as well as unlockable single player leagues and tournaments. The XP based progression system starts you off easy in the minor leagues, but there is plenty of scope for more experienced players to hone their skills against the advanced AI in epic battles for the trophy. There is also a fully customizable single player mode that lets you select what kind of league or knockout tournament you want, the number of opposing teams, number of playoff rounds, difficulty and more.

Review: Tractorball is one of those games that is more fun to play than you might first think. Sure it is nauseating and it did take me a fair while to get used to the controls, but if you have your VR legs and give this game time you will discover just how much fun it can be especially in multiplayer games. Even if you don’t fancy competing online there is more than enough content and challenges here to please most people and offer real value for money. VR needs more multiplayer games like this, now all we need is a real VR football (soccer) game. Although I did enjoy playing it I still feel £6.99 is asking a bit too much and I will suggest waiting for a sale especially as the multiplayer side of things is pretty much dead these days.
