Review: Neverout

There’s a moment in Neverout in which you drop into the title’s central hub for the first time. It comes after around 20 levels of excellent puzzling action that plays on your understanding of gravity and comfort with heights, yet remains impressively comfortable itself. For a moment,…

Review: Dim Light

Videogame horror is at its best when it restricts the player. Resident Evil‘s biggest scares came in the age of tank controls and awkward camera angles, while Amnesia: The Dark Descent thrived on preventing players from fighting back against enemies they couldn’t even look at for a…

Review: Snow Strike

Virtual reality (VR) designed for a young age is a relatively unexplored concept. The Gear VR mobile-based head-mounted display (HMD), for example, sets a minimum age of 13 for use, though co-creator Oculus VR hasn’t cited any specific medical reasoning for this. Even so, there are a…

Review: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Review: Shooting Showdown 2

A gallery shooter in the most literal sense, Shooting Showdown 2 from Naquatic is further proof that you can port pre-existing mobile titles into virtual reality (VR) and quite easily avoid disaster, despite not being specifically designed for the technology. It’s also a good demonstration for how…

Review: Smash Hit

Sometimes porting a videogame to virtual reality (VR) may not be about enhancing immersion so much as improving mechanics.

Review: Vektron Revenge

Head-tracking control has already been led in some interesting directions.

The results thus far have been…
