Description: VirtuGO is a classic puzzle game. Coloured tiles come at you nonstop, and you must put them on your carrying platform and arrange them as best you can on a 5×5 grid. If you match 3,4 or 5 tiles in the same colour horizontally, vertically or diagonally, the blocks get destroyed, you score points and free up space for more tiles. VirtuGO can be played on regular PCs with keyboard and mouse, but also supports VR gameplay. Vive and Oculus (Touch) headsets and controllers can be used to play VirtuGO in VR.

There are 100 levels in VirtuGO and as you level up, you’ll encounter new colour tiles, and they’ll come at you faster and faster. For every 10,000 points you score, you’ll get a WILD tile that you can substitute for any colour. Visit the games community page to see the possible combinations and scoring details. VirtuGO will get addictive as you try to better your personal best and earn a place on the global leaderboard.

Review: Virtual Reality can bring a lot of new and cool things to gaming. Not all games do anything new or cool with VR though. This is one of those games. If you have ever thought to yourself “I’d like to play this game but instead of watching it on a flat screen I’d rather see it exactly as I do now, only in VR”? If so, this is the game you have been looking for. This game is essentially Klax (a classic Arcade game that only 90’s kids will remember). There’s nothing cool or new about how this game is displayed in VR (I think I already said that) and so there’s really no reason to be playing this in VR. But then again if you liked the original you should love this because it really isn’t much difference at all.
