VRMultigames (Oculus Rift)
Intro: This package includes 3 minigames. They are:
DRONE ASSAULT A lightsword game with drones, inspired by both lightblade VR and space pirate trainer. You can deflect or destroy enemy projectiles mid-air, and return fire with your pistol.
LAST STAND This time, the only thing you have is your bow, use it to survive as much time as possible, as enemies will come to you, if anyone gets near, you lose.
GOALKEEPER SIMULATOR A goofy minigame where you are a goalkeeper and defend the goal with huge telescopic hands. There are machines that will launch balls to the goal, you lose when you let too many pass. Remember to have fun with it, and be careful, try not to punch a wall or a TV.
Review: For the moment, VRMultigames is a collection of 3 mini games: Drone Assault, Last Stand & Goalkeeper Simulator. Each one is designed to give you a good idea how to use the Oculus Touch motion controls and each one also has a nice score challenge possibility that might be fun with a few friends over. While there are only 3 games, for now, there is room in the hubs walls for many more of them. Whether or not these will cost you more I have no idea, but the ones you get for free are good enough.
In Drone Assault, you get a lightsaber and a gun and have to fight off evil drones. Goalkeeper Simulator is the most fun and sees you given giant hands on sticks as footballs are fired toward the goal, your job is to stop them from going into the goal. Then finally there is Last Stand which sees you under attack from various people and all you have to stop them is a bow and arrow. You will need fast reactions for all the games and each one is a bit of fun in its own little way.
Verdict: While VRMultigames is a simple little hub of games it has all you need to get used to the world of VR with motion controls. There is also a little bit of motion sickness, just to start to get used to it. I am pretty sure there will be many more little games to come and it could well be a go-to hub for exhibitions & demo displays. At the end of the day it is free, so you can hardly moan about a lack of value for money. If you have the touch controllers, download this and you will soon find something you enjoy.
