Description: Whale Island is an immersive VR experience that allows audiences to experience the wonder of a different world. The experience is set within an unfamiliar but engaging archipelago of islands separated by mist with many varied craft flying by.
Review: Whale Island is not just one non-interactive experience, but it is in fact two of them. One sees you standing on a platform watching nothing happen and the other sees you flying around ‘Whale Island’ one again looking at nothing much. This experience is just too sparse for its own good. I get that this is supposed to be some dream-like desert land, but it would have been more interesting if it was just a real desert! While it does only cost £2.09 I could think of a thousand apps where that money would be better off being spent.
