1/ Kittypocalype ( picture http://adf.ly/1gbxi4 )
Kittypocalype is a VR tower defence game in which you attempt to wrest control of Earth back from a race of kitten-like aliens. Each level sees players setting up against 20 waves of adorable enemies, placing a variety of turrets around the map in order to stop the onslaught of felines reaching your base.
While that might sound like standard tower defence gameplay, it’s enhanced significantly by the VR perspective as well as the freedom to move around the map in 3D space. Neither of these features fundamentally alters how the game plays, but the combination of the two make Kittypocalypse almost impossible to put down, something we never thought we’d write about a game with that name. Travelling seamlessly through 3D space in order to rearrange your armaments or get a better a view of the ongoing massacre is endlessly addictive, especially as the combined effects of your various turrets have the xeno-kittens exploding around you, soaring through the air or stumbling over one another.
As a tower defence game, Kittypocalypse is a rather limiting experience, but one that still offers plenty of tactical depth. For starters you can’t place turrets wherever you want, each level has about eight or nine spots that you can construct turrets on. While this eradicates a lot of the strategy that usually comes with placement, it does force the player to think more carefully about what turret they should place in what slot. Upgrades complicate the decision-making process further as you realise your turrets are fully upgraded but in the completely wrong place.
2/ Hover Junkers ( picture http://adf.ly/1gby46 )
Hover Junkers is a multiplayer-only first-person shooter. Nothing usual in the realm of conventional gaming, sure, but in VR it’s a big deal. Making full use of the Vive’s tracked motion controllers and room-scale functionality, players move around the limited space of their hover junker - think Mad Max with flying boats - shooting at enemies aboard other junkers and ducking behind cover in what’s contextually wrapped up as an endless battle for resources in a water-sapped, post-apocalyptic world.
The junkers themselves are pretty miserable to control, but they serve as a perfect delivery system for first-person combat in VR: they’re stable platforms that move at a steady pace. The action is more akin to that of a rail shooter like Time Crisis rather than the disorienting likes of Call of Duty or Titanfall, which is a blessing given how prevalent motion sickness still is for VR.
While there’s not a massive amount of content to plough through, Hover Junkers gets by on its simplistic gameplay and tactility - plus a light and cartoony art style that’s reminiscent of Timesplitters and Team Fortress 2, beloved multiplayer shooters that it has no doubt been inspired by.
