Description: ZOOMnBOOM is a game about driving really fast and exploding. Survive for as long as you can without crashing into the light trails left by you and your opponents! Your speed is ever-increasing, so collect orbs to slow down if things get too fast! And be careful with those brakes; if they overheat, you’ll explode! These vehicles definitely don’t adhere to governmental safety regulations!

Review: ZOOMnBOOM is very much like the motorcycle scene in the movie Tron. You race around an arena and leave a line behind yourself (that grows the more orbs you collect) and the idea is to make your opponents crash into it. While the promise of the game sounds fun in practice it doesn’t quite live up to the retro movie. The sound effects are rubbish and in VR there is no HUD or indeed anything that might make it feel more immersive. The multiplayer side of things is dead so that just leaves you with the AI that is not up to much. This is one of those games you will be better off getting as part of a bundle with other cheap games rather than buying it on its own.
