Starfighter Arduxim is the latest space shooter game to grace the Gear VR. It follows in the footsteps of Anshar Wars, Anshar Wars 2, End Space, Cosmos Warfare…um, Starship Disco? How loose are we going with comparisons here? Anyway, the point is, there have been a lot of space shooter games on the Gear VR and to be honest, even though I am sick to death with space (which is something I never thought I would say, but there we are) I really enjoyed it. As a matter of fact, it is the first game I’ve played all the way through in a long time.
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?
Captain Clark Adventures is a “look-and— tap” virtual reality adventure game (VR first—person “point-and—click” game) where you play through the main character’s eyes in VR.
In this first episode, you embody Captain Clark, a ship captain in the 18005, who has been attacked at sea by pirates. The ship’s crew has been decimated. Only the captain has been spared and has been taken prisoner on the pirates’ island. The pirates have gone back out to sea and the captain is now alone in a cage on the beach awaiting the pirates’ return. To survive, he will need to try to escape the island.
