Some virtual reality (VR) title can be intense experiences that require concentration and nerves of steel to complete. If you’re after something a little more casual and family friendly then indie developer ByteRockers, VRog might be just what you need.
Aimed towards the child friendly end of the VR market, VRog puts players in the role of a hungry frog who’s looking for its next meal. It’s a simple case of catch as many insects as possible in the allotted time, scoring as many points as possible. To aid some diversity not all the insects are simply food, as certain ones will affected the player both positively and negatively. Eat a wasp and things aren’t going to go well, while other flying bugs can slow down time allowing more to be eaten. Also if a player accidentally swallows the wrong insect, they’ll have to train their aim from an unusual perspective.
Supporting both the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR, VRog includes two game modes. The first is Arcade, in which players have 90 seconds to catch as many insects as possible to achieve a highscore. While the second mode, Survival, isn’t just about eating bugs, there’s a big stork wandering around which isn’t too friendly towards the frog. If spotted players will need to hop away as quickly as possible to find a safe spot.
Located in the Gallery Apps section of the Oculus Store, VRog can be picked up for £2.29 GBP/€2.99 EUR. For all the latest releases for Oculus Rift and Gear VR, keep reading VRFocus.
