Description: “Welcome Above” is the VR experience that allows you to actualize your personal dream of flying like a bird. No matter if relaxedly gliding through abstract aesthetics or rapidly nosediving along photo realistic cliffs – “Welcome Above” automatically recognizes your player type and offers you a flight experience tailored to your needs.
Review: ‘Welcome Above’ is a bird flying adventure game in which you will literally be flapping your arms like wings to make the bird go higher. While a little minimalistic when it comes to graphics the game is still oddly beautiful and peaceful and you fly around collecting the various gems dotted around the level. But sadly you are not free to flap and fly around the said level, you are on rails which do feel quite restricting. Also, this is a short game and you will be done in about 20 mins even if you mess about a bit. While it’s not worth the current asking price of £6.19 I would consider picking this up for a quid or less just for a bit of escapism.
