Description: Void 21 is a procedurally generated, arcade-style, fast-paced runner and shooter. You are a pilot training with the highly manoeuvrable and lethal Void ship. Your objective is to reach the end of the level, either as quickly or as violently as possible (or both?).

Review: There have been many all speed race games made before, but not many that have been made to run on most VR machines. The idea of Void 21 is simple, speed, speed and even more speed (with a little bit of shooting thrown in for good measure). The sense of speed you will experience is amazing and I love the fact that graphics are simple by most standard comparisons. They didn’t need to be anything more than they are.

The controls are also simple to use and work well with the quick pace of the game. With loads of game modes and missions to play there is enough to keep you amused for quite a while. I have to wonder what this game would be liked ramped up and given realistic graphics and I really do think it would be as much fun.

Playing fast-paced racing games are all well and good when played on a 2D screen, but playing them inside VR you could swear blind you can feel the wind on your face. With each passing close call as you narrowly miss one of the many obstructions, you will feel the hairs on the back of your neck and arms go stiff with excitement. This game doesn’t need fancy graphics, a deeply involving story line and cinematic sound. It needed to be fun, fast and exciting and that’s exactly what it is.
