Volkan (Google Daydream)
Intro: A first-person adventure, you need to hop your way around various pieces of infrastructure still standing including old, damaged buildings, pipes, and narrow platforms, as well as natural structures such as mountains and rocks. Meanwhile, the volcanoes that have destroyed the world around you continue to explode, depositing piping hot lava that flows in all directions.
Verdict: To put it simply Volkan is an endless runner that is very much like Clustertruck but with strange, almost ‘alien world’ style graphics. To be fair to it the game looks pretty good (albeit in a low-polygon style) and runs nice and smooth with only the odd clip and clitch here and there when things get really crazy. Sure, this game does get boring pretty quickly with high levels of frustration from the start, but yet, it’s a ‘do-able’ challenge and the only thing preventing you from going further alone the seemingly random road is your own skillset and slow hand-to-eye coordination. Plus its extra low price is what really seals this game as something special. Volkan is not too overpriced, looks great in VR and offers a real challenge to even the best of gamers.
