Fusion Wars Quick Look

/
If you've been wanting a great first person shooter game that is fast and not only has, but requires full controller support, then Fusion Wars may just be the game that you've been waiting for. It isn't perfect, but it's the most polished game we've seen in a long time. I suspect it will take it's position among the ranks of games like Anshar Wars 2, Esper 2, Dead Secret and other Gear VR greats.

Starfighter Arduxim

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.

Hex: Heavy Encounter EXOsuit

/
Many of us who have been in the Gear VR game for a while are familiar with Robot Invader and I'm sure I'm not the only one who was pretty excited to see a new game from the studio show up in the store on Wednesday. In case you aren't a member of this group, Robot Invader is the studio who made Dead Secret. If that still doesn't ring a bell for you, then you need to stop reading this right now, go to the Oculus Store and purchase Dead Secret. It was one of the earlier games on the store and remains one of the best to this day. For the rest of you, the game I'm talking about here is Hex: Heavy Encounter EXOsuit.
cerevrum

Cerevrum looks like it could benefit from more of a description than I can give it here, but so far it looks like an interesting twist on a turret shooter. The twist is that in order to fire your guns at the baddies, you have to complete brain bending tasks. One task includes launching coloured balls out into space where they lose their colour and then mix themselves up and you have to remember which is which to fire your gun. Another has a number of little critters pop out of holes. Some are identical, some are not. It then shows you two of the holes and asks you if the two critters inside are the same or not. Sounds simple, but it can get tough as occasionally a new critter will pop out of a hole and you have to remember that that one hole is now different.

It seems the team behind Cerevrum is specially qualified to make a game like this with background in both neuroscience and gaming. It looks great too, so if you enjoy challenging your mind and you can afford it (it’s free, you can) then give the game a shot.
