Virtual Virtual Reality

Viveport Review: Virtual Virtual Reality   Step into a whacky adventure in this comedic narrative about the future of humankind, AI, and virtual reality.   by Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     To call Virtual Virtual Reality an interesting virtual reality experience is a bit of an understatement. The game handles the idea of a dark future well—humans replaced by AI as the dominant “species” on the planet—but never takes itself too seriously. It’s a fantastic little romp that leaves t

Kobold: Chapter 1

Viveport Review: Kobold: Chapter 1   Kobold blends cinema and virtual reality to create a chilling and memorable horror experience.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   Kobold: Chapter 1 is the first installment in a horror series that thrusts players into the dark and creepy forests of Germany as they explore an abandoned villa on the quest for clues, answers, and the truth about a missing boy and his family. While the experience itself is outstanding, what really sets Kobold apar

Witching Tower

Viveport Review: Witching Tower   Step into a magic-filled adventure full of twists, turns, and puzzles galore.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   I absolutely love games that make you think, especially when they come in the form of old-school dungeon crawlers. Right from the start, Witching Tower does its best to build up a narrative that’s sure to entice players to want to explore the dark and magical world that Daily Magic Productions has created. Join Anna, a fugitive of the

The Body VR

Viveport Review: The Body VR   A fully immersive exploration of the human body at a cellular level, gain a first-hand lesson in biology from within the bloodstream through the power of virtual reality. The future of education is here!   By Desmond Madison, Greenlit Content     Shrunken down in a travel pod and injected straight into a human artery, The Body VR is like going on a Magic School Bus tour of human biology as narrated by a suspiciously Michael Caine-like tour guide.

Tilt Brush VR

Viveport Review: Tilt Brush VR   Google’s 3D art suite makes it easy to draw, create, and inspire others in virtual reality.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   When Google first announced Tilt Brush, fans of virtual reality were wowed by the simplicity and intuitiveness that the program brought to the table when it came to creating works of art in a full 3D environment. Now, two years after Tilt Brush launched with the HTC VIVE, the program still continues to be one of the strong

SUPERHOT VR

Viveport Review: SUPERHOT VR   Bullet time takes the forefront in this striking and unique virtual reality experience.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   The idea behind SUPERHOT is simple. Time stands still until you start moving, at which point all the threats around you become active, moving in on you. It’s a game that forces you to think on your toes and stay ten steps ahead of the action. When SUPERHOT originally released, it turned the idea of bullet time—the slow-motion, m

Glider Island VR

Viveport Review: Glider Island VR   This gliding simulation brings the fun of old school retro games to virtual reality in a fresh new way.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     The idea behind Glider Island VR is simple. You take off from a launch point and then have ten minutes to glide around, collecting rings similar to those you might see in old retro games. It’s a simple idea for a simple application, and the simplicity pays off by offering a fun experience that never asks too

Sairento VR

Viveport Review: Sairento VR   Dive into nonstop action and violence with this brilliant and addicting shooter.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     There is a lot to love about the first-person game, Sairento VR. When I say that the developers managed to pull off one of the smoothest feeling combat games in the entire VR catalogue, I’m not in any way joking. Gunplay is smooth, sword-based combat feels amazing, and all around, everything else just works. That being said, there’s

Arizona Sunshine

Viveport Review: Arizona Sunshine + Dead Man DLC   Step into the zombie apocalypse with this brutal and terrifying shooter.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     Arizona Sunshine was one of the first big titles to hit virtual reality devices, and while the game’s campaign is only a few hours long, it’s one of the premiere experiences available on the HTC Vive. If you dream of stepping into the zombie apocalypse (and why wouldn’t you), look no further.   On top of having great gunp

Nevrosa: Escape

Viveport Review: Nevrosa: Escape   GexagonVR has managed to create a must-play escape room experience that takes full advantage of room-scale VR.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     Room-scale virtual reality has been a very large selling point for the HTC Vive since its initial release, and while many games have employed room-scale VR to help coax in players, very few have ever really taken full advantage of the room-scale system that Vive offers to create a riveting and immer

Fruit Ninja VR

Viveport Review: Fruit Ninja VR   The fruit-slicing, bomb-avoiding mobile smash hit is back and more immersive than ever.   By Bill Loguidice, Greenlit Content     When it was first released back in 2010, Fruit Ninja took the mobile gaming world by storm. From there, it received ports to various other platforms, including Microsoft's Xbox 360 console with Kinect, and even the arcade.   In most versions of the game, players use a touchscreen to slice and splatter fruit, all while avoid

Racket: Nx

Viveport Review: Racket: Nx    Stylish visuals and clever audio make this VR fitness game stand far apart from the crowd.   By Desmond Madison, Greenlit Content   Loading up Racket: Nx feels nothing short of stepping into a cybernetic alien thunderdome from the future. Billed as an Arcade Space Sport, this game turns racquetball into an impossibly fast-paced fever dream that will genuinely have you breaking a sweat in minutes. There are plenty of other tennis and racquetball-based experi

Drone Fighters

Viveport Review: Drone Fighters  This arcade shooter delights and challenges players as they go head to head against each other in immersive and enthralling drone-based combat.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   Drone Fighters is the sort of high intensity experience that VR was made for. As you face off against opponents—both AI and player controlled—you’re bound to come across some fun challenges that will leave you wanting to dive back into the game again and again.   Admit

ReMind VR: Daily Meditation

Viveport Review: ReMind VR: Daily Meditation   Become more relaxed and mindful through three different types of meditative experiences.     By Bill Loguidice, Greenlit Content     Meditation is probably as popular today as it's ever been. In our stressful world of work, partisan politics, social media, always-on technology, and general hustle-and-bustle of everyday life, it's no surprise that many of us seek out techniques for a daily reset.

Guns'n'Stories: Bulletproof VR

This take on old-fashioned shooting galleries commonly features many different types of weapons, various defensive capabilities like ducking and dodging, and a limited player movement area,

The Price of Freedom

Viveport Review: The Price of Freedom   Save the USA in this expertly done Cold War thriller.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     Most virtual reality games and apps are simple, action-oriented experiences meant to give players a euphoric feeling of reality while also remaining fun. The Price of Freedom throws all of this out the door, instead devising a way to make you think.   As a storyteller, one of the greatest things you can do is make the audience feel, and the developmen

Sneaky Bears

Viveport Review: Sneaky Bears Shoot down hordes of evil teddy bears in this immersive and engaging arcade shooter.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   The teddies in Sneaky Bears are neither loving nor cuddly. Some might say that they’re even more bloodthirsty than a pack of rabid dogs hunting you down in the middle of a forest at midnight. That said, the intensity that Sneaky Bears brings to the table as you try to stop Frank (the bad guy) and his evil army of bears is both spectacul

Kodon – Early Access

Viveport Review: Kodon – Early Access   This free-draw based sculpting app has potential, but ultimately leaves a lot to be desired.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     Virtual reality is great for creating and sharing your works of art, and there are a ton of excellent programs to help light your creative spark. Kodon is just one of many, and while the program has potential. Ultimately, it’s a bit clunky and hard to work with. Of course, it is early access, which means the develo

BOXVR

Viveport Review: BOXVR   BOXVR may look like your average workout game, but it’s amazing what adding music can do to your daily routine.   By Emily Medlock, Greenlit Content     BOXVR is a fitness game that may possess magical powers, as it just might encourage you to workout on a daily basis and enjoy it! The idea of the game is to do a standard boxing routine to music as you hit the incoming orbs at the right time. Although BOXVR sounds like so many other fitness games, this one seems t

Storm VR

Viveport Review: Storm VR    This outstanding experience is dulled by its short length and limited gameplay.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     The premise for Storm VR had me hooked from the start. Players drop into the middle of a snow storm, where they’ll need to hurry to find shelter, food, and survive the harsh weather. It’s a game that focuses heavily on time management and puzzle solving. While the puzzles aren’t overly hard to complete, doing this while trying to fight ba

Overview VR

Viveport Review: Overview VR   Orbital View’s outer space experience feels authentic and awe-inspiring, but is ultimately lacking.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     The exploration of space has inspired millions to look up beyond the Earth in search of answers. For those interested in taking a step closer to the stars, virtual reality is a nice gateway to learning more about the planets and heavenly bodies that surround us. The latest app to focus on this idea is Overview VR.

Glaive

Viveport Review: Glaive   Battle creatures of the dark in this addicting and challenging wave-based survival game.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     Glaive is a simple kind of game where you stand in the middle of a massive arena bathed in darkness. The goal? Throw a frisbee-like device at enemies before they go in for the kill. It’s similar to the weapon in the 1983 action movie, Krull. Despite the game’s simplicity, Glaive is one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had

A Story of Distress

Viveport Review: A Story of Distress   This rogue-lite VR experience feels nice, but ultimately falls short with subpar audio design, voice acting, and gameplay.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   I wanted to love A Story of Distress. As a huge fan of rogue-lites, A Story of Distress felt like the perfect combination of rogue-lite meets dungeon crawler. However, the game’s cutscenes and voice acting leave a lot to be desired, and the overall gameplay loop and combat is less than per

Seeking Dawn

Viveport Review: Seeking Dawn   A beautiful world is marred by complex systems and overly dull fetch quests.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content       Developed by Multiverse, Seeking Dawn is by far one of the most ambitious virtual reality titles that I have ever seen. The game has some of the best visuals that virtual reality has produced since even before the release of the HTC Vive. Compared to other titles, Seeking Dawn is easily the most visually appealing virtual reality game th
