If you really want to get some good exercise in VR you can’t go past Sprint Vector! A full-on workout while you have friend racing against other players. Run, jump, fly, double-jump, climb.. it has it all!
Sprint Vector starts with tutorials explaining how to run. You need to sweep your arms down and pull yourself along. You can use buttons to grab walls and climb up. When jumping, put your arms out to fly along through hoops and other obstacles. Jump over ravines and hurdles. Grab onto edges to pull you along or up over obstacles. You use your whole body to play this one! Whew! I need a beer and some Netflix after this!
If you like playing Crash Bandicoot and want something similar for the Oculus Rift, give Lucky’s Tale a spin! Lots of jumping around, breaking boxes and collecting stars. It really feels like a Crash game!
It’s a very cutesy-style game with a story and tons of fun! The only drawback I’d say is you can only play via the Oculus Touch controllers which are not the best for a platformer type game like this. I’d prefer if they supported a gamepad at least. However, this is a minor issue and does not detract from the fact this game is madly fun to play!
I tried playing this crazy game. Windlands is kinda Spiderman-like. Instead of shooting out webs to swing on you have hooks which shoot out from your fists and grab onto trees, buildings, platforms, etc.
The video above is for the Windlands 2 version, but it’s similar. I could not find Windlands 2 in the SteamVR store so bought the first one. There was nobody else online, but I believe it’s a multiplayer game. Perhaps they all went to 2 or maybe I’m still learning.
If you are a big fan of The Sims style games, you wanna try out Skytropolis for VR!
At the time of writing this post I have only played this for an hour once but I really enjoyed it. You start by building the elevator to add on levels and then pathways, units, pathways, parks, tennis courts, offices, fast food joints, etc. People move in.
