2MD: VR Football
It comes down to the last two minutes of a match and it is up to you to make the wining score. Think you can do that? Well, in 2MD: VR Football you’ll have to. From developer Truant Pixel, players jump into the final two minutes of an American Football match and step into the shoes of a quarterback. Draw up a plan, call the shots, make the throw, hand-off or even just run for that last minute touchdown. It’s an intense, action packed two minutes.
2MD: VR Football is available now for £7.39 (GBP) down from the usual £9.99.
“All in all Headmaster is a well put together title that the majority of VR gamers will find enjoyable. It does feel a bit 2016 in its gameplay offerings, with VR having moved on leaps and bounds in terms of the depth of content available. Headmaster is a tongue in cheek experience that doesn’t take itself too seriously, supplying light hearted fun mixed with good physics, and that’s no bad thing.” – Read VRFocus’ Senior Staff Writer Peter Graham’s review of Headmaster.
Headmaster is available now for £4.99 (GBP) down from £15.99.
“Enter another dimension and master the elements to become a supreme being. With arcade, chaos and ultra modes in procedural stages ensures a unique experience. Avoid all surfaces and reach the exit to be victorious.”
Hex Tunnel is only £2.49 (GBP) down from £3.99.
Blasters of the Universe
“For those that’ve become rightly bored with wave shooters Blasters of the Universe offers that spark of light, reminding us why this genre became popular in the first place. The entire theme, visual aesthetics and gameplay make Blasters of the Universe a joy to play, just be prepared to swear and curse – possibly throw a controller – as that heart disappears because you didn’t see that one laser bolt soon enough.” – Read VRFocus’ Senior Staff Wrtier Peter Graham’s review of Blasters of the Universe.
Blasters of the Universe is available now for £6.49 (GBP) down from £11.99.
Konrad the Kitten
If you want to escape the everyday life and space time with a cute kitten then this is the title for you. Meet Konrad, the cute kitten that needs a helping hand and lots of love. Feed him, take him on a hot-air-balloon ride and keep him happy with a wide range of activities and tools to play with. Featuring a number of mini-games and a large range of accessories to dress Konrad up in, any fan of kittens is sure to have a blast with this title.
Konrad the Kitten is available now for £7.99 (GBP) down from £11.99.
Pirate Flight (VR)
What if you could be a pirate and fly through the skies? Well, in Pirate Flight (VR) you can do just that. Designed to be an accessible title for anyone to play, players will be able to fly, race, and shoot across three worlds and 90 missions. With no landing or complex controllers, flying has never been so simple. The title also includes dragons so really, what more could you want?
Pirate Flight (VR) is available now for Oculus Go for £7.39 (GBP) down from £11.99 with an extra 10% discount available for PlayStation Plus members.
Island Time VR
“After a ruckus journey at sea, you are shipwrecked on a tiny island. Using your wit, ingenuity and the advice of your new buddy, Carl the Crab, you’ve gotta find a way to keep yourself from starving and survive as long as possible. Craft tools, fend off creatures, try to signal an airplane… or you could just give up and die? …Maybe, just enjoy the sunset while you can. Almost makes you forget that you’re in a desperate struggle against your own mortality.”
Island Time VR is currently £6.49 (GBP) down from £11.59.
The American Dream
“There’s so much to like about The American Dream that it feels like nagging when pointing out its faults. Some of you will love its humour and points of view on guns, but many will notice there’s not a massive amount to do, with hidden stars on each stage the only real reason to give it another go. There’s no doubt that The American Dream’s commentary on American gun culture will rile some, particularly at this point in the political landscape, nevertheless as a VR experience it’s certain worth your consideration.” – Read VRFocus’ Senior Staff Writer Peter Graham’s review of The American Dream.
The American Dream is currently on sale for £11.99 (GBP) down from £15.99 with PlayStation Plus members saving an extra 25%.
Jump in and take to the skies in this open world experience where you’ll pilot multiple aircraft to complete a variety of missions and challenges. Pop balloons as you fly through the air, snap the best photos, execute perfect landings and flt courses to earn the highest score. If you want to feel the thrill of flying high in the air then Ultrawings is for you.
Ultrawings is currently available for £8.99 (GBP) down from £17.99.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
“The achievement made by The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is one by way of both hardware and design to capitalise upon this. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR’s level of immersion is simply fantastic, and while Bethesda Softworks could well have gone the route of DOOM VFR and created a shorter spin-off experience, developing a brand new The Elder Scrolls instalment specifically for VR would have taken many years and far too much in the way of resources for what is still a nascent audience. As it stands some may find the price point of the videogame a bitter pill to swallow, but for those who dreamed of a truly immersive role-playing experience, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is simply the best opportunity available today.” – Read VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce’s review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is available now for £32.49 (GBP) down from £49.99 with PlayStation Plus members saving an extra 35%.
