When Google first announced the Daydream View headset at its Google I/O conference in May one of the earliest virtual reality (VR0 titles confirmed for the headset was Wonderglade by Resolution Games. When Daydream View launched in November Wonderglade was a day one title for the headset, and today the studio releases a new update for the experience.
Wonderglade is a carnival-themed mini-game collection that previously featured four challenges. The update today now adds a fifth game and several other additions. Alongside Wonderglade’s initial attractions – Tinder Town, Magic Mayhem, Tip N Tilt Racing and Tiny Tee Golf – users can now play a new mini-game called Hamster Hoops. Here players become an interstellar basketball champion by shooting hoops in space surrounded by cute hamsters. The more high-value hoops a player hits the higher their score and more tickets they will earn.
For the festive season Resolution Games has enabled a ‘pass and play’ feature, where users can play their favourite mini-games with up to six friends for a local competition. There are new items to purchase including a royal crown for avatars, an alien gun hose or guitar hose for Tinder Town, a cookie wand or fly swatter for Magic Mayhem, new characters for Tip N Tilt and more. Wonderglade has also been localized to include German, UK English, Latin American Spanish and Canadian French.
“We’re excited to see Wonderglade become a breakout success with a 4.7 rating in the Google Play Store. We’re also getting some great feedback and comments from users – much of which drove these new updates,” said Tommy Palm, CEO and co-founder of Resolution Games. “And, just in time for the holidays players can now engage with their families and friends in a whole new way with the added pass and play tournament mode. It’s truly the perfect way to introduce those who haven’t experienced VR to the platform.”
