In the far future, robots have taken over all of Earth’s cities. In a last-ditch attempt to reclaim their homes, humans have built the biggest, baddest robot yet to take care of the usurping robots and get back their homes. This is the basics of VRobot.
VRFocus correspondent Nina takes a look at the Steam Early Access title, discussing her experience with being a giant-sized robot construct. The objective is pretty simple: Destroy everything in sight. The robot you control has various weapons and abilities to command to make destroying things easier, such as a tractor beam to pull and throw things around, or the powerful tornado gun to unleash a miniature natural disaster upon your surroundings. If all else fails, there is good old punching power. A score is awarded based upon the performance of how well the smashing of the city is performed, with speed and accuracy being rewarded and the smashing of special buildings resulting in bonus points. There is even a special giant enemy robot available to defeat.
VRobot is currently available through Steam Early Access for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with Touch for £10.99 (GBP). As the experience involves much flailing about with motion controllers, a large clear space is highly recommended for playing this videogame. It has not yet been confirmed when the title will be available for a full release.
