Description: VROOM KABOOM is a brand-new type of gameplay experience. A “Tower Rush with Vehicles”, this game combines elements from collectable card games, tower defence and multiplayer online battles. With a wide variety of physics-driven vehicles, VROOM KABOOM is a crazy mash-up of emergent action gameplay and tactical choices. Engage in 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 battles and even take to the roads in our full-featured VR mode!
Review: While it is clear from the off that ‘Vroom Kaboom’ wasn’t made for VR, but yet it does kind of work with it! This is an odd kind of game that isn’t quite a racing game (although it has racing elements) and it is not quite an action game (although it features plenty of action). The idea is to get to point A to B, but it is more of a strategy based thing as you make sure the bomb cars get to where they are going.
At the time of this review, the game is free which if you ask me is a real bargain and to my surprise, there were some people playing online, although I would imagine that is because the game is free. While this isn’t the best looking game for a freebie it is well worth grabbing and should last you a good few days of gameplay. Take my advice and play with a gamepad, it feels amazing!
