Description: Shoot down the snowballs in this super casual Christmas themed VR game. You’re surrounded by the puffy floating snowballs waiting to be blown up. But there’s a catch! They are not silently waiting for you to shoot’em in the face. While some move at different orientation others moves in different trajectories, and that’s just the beginning of how tough it can get.
Play through 30 challenging levels where you have to shoot down all the snowballs with a toy gun in each level. The snowballs’ patterns are quite unexpected in each level making the game very engaging leaving the player longing for more. VR Snowballs is set up in a small town like environment with a single home around. The game truly tests your reflexes & patience!
Review: In the early years of this new wave of virtual reality tech, everyone was trying to make games and understand the technology. And when that time came to Christmas everyone and his son was making festive games, snowball games, just about anything winter-related. Some were good and fun, other (like VR Snowballs) not so much. This is a VERY basic shooter in which you need to change the colour of some snowballs before they vanish. A good aim and a quick shot are needed here. If this was a freebie I might have been telling you to take a look at it, but for £3.99 this is one festive game you don’t want under your Christmas tree.
