If you have ever wondered what it would be like to be inside a pinball table, directing the ball to the bumpers and flippers as neon flights flash and flicker around you, then developer Rusty Oak have created a virtual reality (VR) title that might appeal to you.
Inspired by the physics and bright lights of pinball tables, Hurl VR is a physics puzzle title that involves aiming and throwing a projectile at various types of platforms in order to make it bounce the right way to hit the goal. Each platform type has its own properties, so careful tactics must be deployed in order to send the ball in the right direction.
Players advance through the levels by hitting the platforms in the right order to unlock the gateway. Some platforms will boost the speed of the ball, others will bounce the ball considerably further, or teleport it to another location. There are plans for 30 levels, with new challenges and platform types being added every few levels.
The aesthetics are strongly reminiscent of the pinball tables that are the inspiration, featuring dark, moody backgrounds in sharp contrast to the brightly coloured lights of the platforms, ball and gateways.
The developers are planning on releasing Hurl VR on to Steam for the HTC Vive on 12th September, 2017. A price point is yet to be confirmed, and it is unknown if there are plans on ports to other VR platforms.
You can view the announcement trailer below. Further information can be found on the Steam store page.
