WMR STARTER GAMES
Pinball FX2 VR/£ 10.99fromSteam
Pinball FX2 VR is the one game that keeps drawing us back into VR. While standing in front of a 3D pinball machine is never going to be quite the same as the real thing, it’s surprisingly close – and also allows for added atmosphere, such as an underwater feel in one of the sea-themed machines. Your initial investment buys you access to three machines, which is plenty to start. We’re still trying to get to grips with the Epic Quest one, having only scored around 7 million points so far. There’s also an extension pack for around £20.
Tiny Town VR/£ 10.99fromSteam
Tiny Town VR is one for the kids. It’s a weird mix between Minecraft (which is also available in VR, but isn’t as well implemented), Lego and Sim City, allowing you to design your own, well, tiny town. Add buildings, create roads, build an airport, a farm – whatever you like. My son decided to create an odd tribute to King Kong, with a giant clutching a hostage while being attacked by planes. As this indicates, Tiny Town VR may sound simple, but it has the potential to keep children occupied and their imaginations active.
