I’ve just finished playing Affected: The Manor and I have to say, this is probably what horror games or experiences in VR ought to be. It’s creepy, it looks great, it’s not too long and even though it relies on jump scares a lot, you pretty much know when they are coming and can be prepared. In other words, you’ll be able to get through this one.

The first game that I reviewed on the Gear VR was Adventure Time: Magic Man’s Head Games. I loved that game in spite of it’s short length. It was well made, looked great, had lots of humour and was just a lot of fun. All of these features are back in Floor Plan, including, unfortunately, the short play time. This combination of features was exactly what we wanted in the early days of the Gear VR when there was a dearth of experiences to be had. But now that the library has filled up more, is it enough to warrant putting down your hard earned dollars?
Archer E Bowman is a game that I really want to like. It has some humour, it looks great and it plays well. I thought that way back when it was released for free in the concepts section and I still think it now. Everything about the game is good except for one thing. It’s not a lot of fun.
I’m not sure that that is Archer E Bowman’s fault though. This game has been in development for a long time, but in that time we have been treated to (or subjected to depending on your opinion) a lot of gazed based stationary shooters. Some of them are much better than others and Archer E Bowman is certainly one of the best there is in the category, but ultimately, no matter how good of a stationary shooter it is, it’s still a stationary shooter. You can swap out the graphics, change the enemies, imbue the character with various powers or equip them with varying forms of ammunition, but in the end the play is still just looking and tapping and looking and tapping. And not a lot else.
Please Don’t Touch Anything is one of those puzzle games where they don’t tell you anything. You don’t know what you’re doing or what the goal is. You just start doing things and see where it leads. Because of that I think that this game is going to be both love it and hate it. There are times where you feel like a genius because you’ve deciphered a clue that seems like it could mean almost anything and then there are times where you are certain something you just found is the answer to a puzzle that you saw earlier and it’s not, or else you can’t figure out how to get back to the puzzle you found earlier.
Well, I’m an idiot. Hitman Go came out on mobile ages ago and I saw it and wrote it off. It’s everything I hate about mobile games. Boring and over simplistic. Take one thing and build a game around it. For the most part, even the good mobile games are good for a few minutes and then you delete them from your phone because you’ve seen everything they have to offer in the first two minutes. I love Hitman. I didn’t want to see it reduced to this.
The game is about a boy who has a spring loaded hand helmet that can grab on to anything. You use this helmet to grab objects throughout the level and swing on them as you make your way toward a bell somewhere in the stage. The bell is sometimes plainly visible and sometimes it’s hidden out of sight.
VR Fantasy is a great little game that I discovered the other day while browsing the Google Play Store. I thought that it looked decent so I downloaded it and gave it a shot. I have to admit, it was better than I was expecting. I’ve downloaded my fair share of titles that looked good in the images only to find that they were nearly unplayable, or nothing more than a collections of purchased assets that you can walk around but do nothing else. I was expecting more of that when I downloaded this free game but I was pleasantly surprised to find a short, but enjoyable experience.
Should you download Herobound Gladiator? It’s free, so yes. But is it worth your limited time? That’s a resounding “sure, why not?” Herobound Gladiator is the multiplayer map version of Spirit Champion. It uses all the same assets. taking a single room from the SC world and turning it into a multiplayer arena in which up to four players hack and slash wave after wave of bad guys.
