Oculus Go Game Reviews – Merry Snowballs

Image Credit: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1450829168345758/

As I write this review for Merry Snowballs it is April. That is important to note because I have a feeling that come December, Merry Snowballs is going to be one of my go-to games to get me in the Christmas spirit. This is a game that was made by only two people. Two folks who actually worked for Dice! So that right there tells you the kind of people they are which is what got me very excited about finally checking this game out.

The first thing that you take notice of is just how polished Merry Snowballs is. While the overall game is pretty simple. Merry Snowballs does have a lot of charm to it and the presentation, for the most part, is very nice. It really does take me back to when I was a kid and I and my friends would have these epic snowball fights around the neighborhood. I think that is the kind of feeling they were hoping to capture and they do it very well.

The idea of the game is pretty simple. You are a neighborhood kid and there is an epic snowball fight taking place. You can use the controller to “throw” snowballs, but you can also use it to block them too. It actually works really well and I was impressed with how well my Oculus Go picked up my throws and blocks. You score points by hitting the other kids that are around the map and also by nailing these presents that are scattered around too.

While throwing the snowballs is fun, Merry Snowballs kicks things up a notch by having powerups that you can get. These range from a machine gun to an ice gun that all make nailing the other kids with snowballs that extra bit easier. You can even do this roulette wheel thing that will score you a power up right from the start of the fight! This is really cool when this happens and can certainly set you on your path to a really high score.

One thing that I got a real good chuckle out of with Merry Snowballs was the boss fights. The game has a rather creepy looking Santa Clause that you need to put in his place. As well as good old’ saint nick, you also will do battle against a giant gingerbread man who has come to life. These just help add to the personality and also gives the game a little extra for you to do.

There are different maps, but the only real thing that you are striving towards (as well as beating the game) is the leaderboards. You can try your best to get as high on them as you can. I think this is what you will spend most of your time doing as overall the game is quite short. I do feel that some kind of multiplayer aspect to the game where I could easily play with other real people would have been awesome.

Pros:

The presentation is great

Throwing and blocking snowballs feels great

The action is quite fun

The game is very reasonably priced

Santa is a boss!

Cons:

The game is quite short

A large multiplayer snowball fight would have been great

Oculus Go Game Reviews – Elevator to the Moon

Image Credit: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/go/1679693852044653/?locale=en_GB

I have played some, what best are described as weird games over the years, but Elevator to the Moon has to be one of the weirdest. I am sure if you were to look at 10 different best Oculus Go VR games lists that Elevator to the Moon would appear on more of them than not. This is one of the funniest, charming, crazy and well-designed puzzle games that I have ever had the pleasure to play!

So, what is the deal with Elevator to the Moon? Well, the story here is hilarious! The idea is that the president who is called, Dough-Slater Roccmeier (and he is the president of the world by the way) has tasked you with being the repair person of his epic elevator to the moon! Of course, the whole idea of having an elevator like this is completely ridiculous, dangerous and of most likely doomed for failure, but he does not care! He wants his moon elevator and you need to get it done.

He will always be shouting orders at you through your headset and this is where the best humor in the game is. His accent is great and the voice acting is really fantastic. I legit found myself laughing and chuckling the whole time I was playing this. I actually think I would go as far as to say that Elevator to the Moon on the Oculus Go is one of the funniest games, I have played in quite some time. While he is barking orders at you and telling you what to do, you do not actually have to follow his instructions to the letter.

You see, Elevator to the Moon is actually a puzzle game and while his instructions (which most of the time are nuts) are there to try and steer you in the direction of what you need to do. This is a game that gives you a lot of freedom of choice in regards to how you go about completing the different puzzles. Each stage will have various puzzles that you need to figure out. Fix this, go get that, where is this? Combine this with that and so on are the kind of puzzles that you will be needing to do in order to get this elevator to the moon actually working.

One of the best aspects of Elevator to the Moon is all the hidden details and Easter eggs that are in the game. As I write this the game just did a big update that introduced a new chapter and a ton more things for you to find and laugh and or just scratch your head at. There is even a game within a game (a fun arcade style game) in Elevator to the Moon. You can clearly tell that the people behind this game were having a great time when they were putting it together. I think that this is a huge part of what makes it such a fun experience for the player too.

Speaking of experience. I have played a ton of VR games that are fun, but once you have done them there is not really any replay value. I do not think that is the case with Elevator to the Moon. There are so many little Easter eggs hidden around that you always find something you missed before. Plus, there are leaderboards so you can have some fun by challenging your friends to see who is the best at the game.

I can hand on heart say that when it comes to puzzle games on the Oculus Go. There are not many that are as much fun and well made as Elevator to the Moon. Even if you only have a passing interest in puzzle games, I really do feel that this is a game you simply must have on your Oculus Go.

Pros

It is a very well-made game

The puzzles are fun and give you a lot of freedom

The President is pretty insane

Some fantastic voice acting

This is legit one of the best games for the Oculus Go!

Cons:

Some puzzles can be a little cryptic

It is so good, you just want more and more!

Oculus Go Game Reviews – Defense Grid 2 VR

Image Credit: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/go/1028359287211728/?locale=en_GB

Defense Grid 2 was already a big hit on the PC and now the folks behind it have brought it to the Oculus Go. Already Defense Grid 2 was regarded as one of the best tower defense strategy style games around so many people were excited to see how the game would work in VR. Well I can tell you right away it works very well and many people are saying this is the best tower defense game you can get for VR.

The idea of Defense Grid 2 is quite simple. You need to defend your base and your energy cubes from what feels like a never-ending wave of enemies! The way that you do this is by cleverly positioning your towers at certain points of the map. As you progress through the game you can use special towers, get upgrades, new characters, abilities and so on that can all give you a strategic advantage in battle.

Defense Grid 2 is certainly not an easy game and just one wrong tower placement can cause utter devastation! Still, even if defeat, Defense Grid 2 is a game that is a lot of fun to play. While it does make you think, I really like how they have made the game fun too. The campaign has 26 levels and a few of these after the main campaign are made with VR in mind and these are quite spectacular.

Actually, speaking of VR, the developers clearly had a lot of fun in bringing the game to the Oculus Go. I say this because they have hidden all kinds of things around the maps. From things that will let you interact with stuff like bridges, lights on the buildings and so on to hidden power cores that will require you to really get into a map and look around to find them. This really is a great use of VR and I loved getting in close and seeing all the little details.

The campaign I feel is paced quite well. The tutorial really does hold your hand quite well and it teaches you what you need to know. The progression of the campaign is something that I enjoyed and I never felt that there was an unfair difficulty spike. Actually, any time that I failed in Defense Grid 2 I can say that it was always because of something that I did. There are no multiplayer options in the game, but there are leaderboards. However, there are ways you can tweak the game which give it more replay value. For example, you can make the game harder, have a certain number of towers that you can use and you can also play around with many other options which helps add to the fun.

I was very impressed with what Defense Grid 2 offered on the Oculus Go. I would actually say that playing this in VR is even better than playing it on PC. The way they make you have to look around buildings and pay attention to the layout of the map is very clever stuff. I do feel that some kind of multiplayer battle would have been great, but the single player content alone is going to keep you busy for a long time. Without a doubt, this is a game you have to play if you have an Oculus Go!

Pros:

The presentation is great

The campaign has plenty of cool and badass characters

It offers the perfect blend of strategy and fun

One of the better tutorials I have played

Plenty of ways you can tweak the gameplay

Cons:

There are no multiplayer battles

Some may still find it a little tough if new to this style of game
