Puzzle titles seems to work well within virtual reality (VR). Perhaps it is the immersion that means outside distractions are eliminated, or perhaps it is the improved interactivity of the VR environment. Either way, developer ARVI LLC are using those factors to its advantage to create Mystery Lands VR.
Mystery Lands VR is a puzzle title that puts the player in various exotic and fantastic locations where they need to eliminate a chain or three or more balls in order to collect crystals.
Players will need to travel across islands to find hills or other objects to find the best position and then take aim at the balls, matching three or more of the same colour to destroy them all before they reach the crystal. If you succeed, the crystal is yours. When the required number of crystals has been collected, you can move on to the next amazing location.
There are different types of bonuses available to make destroying all the balls, such as fireballs, chameleon balls, or freezing and reverse technologies so players can aim for the best result in order to complete the puzzle.
The developers are offering a range of difficulty levels, from Beginner up to Professional. Or for a more relaxed experience, its possible to just travel the various environments to admire the scenery that has been created as a backdrop.
The developers recently gave some players access to a closed beta so the development team could gather feedback from the community and fix any persistent bugs and any features that the audience might wish to be added.
Mystery Lands VR will be available on Steam from 14th June, 2018. It will be compatible with the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality devices. Further information can be found on the Steam store page.
