Racket: Nx Demo Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

Racket: Nx Demo Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

It’s racquetball… IN SPAAAAACE! Hit a glowy thing against other glowy things until your time runs out! Hit your glowy thing against the other glowy things more times before the time runs out to get more points!

It’s a simple concept, but let’s look at how well it’s executed!

A puzzle game set in the Portal universe, where you solve a variety of puzzles in perfectly safe Aperture Science testing chambers. In which nothing can go wrong.

It’s good fun to be able to actually be in the Portal ‘verse, and to meet a couple of fond companions on your way…

Waltz of the Wizard Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

Waltz of the Wizard is a fun little sand-boxy interactive environment that allows you to create a number of spells and then see what those spells do – often to destruction!

It’s a very nice game, with lots of fun things to do and explore!

Skeet: VR Target Shooting Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

Skeet: VR Target Shooting Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

Wanna play with guns? Who doesn’t? Well, actually probably lots of people. But in VR we can muck about with dangerous firearms with no chance of blowing our or any other people’s heads off! Huzzah!

Three modes – Skeet, Trap and Quickdraw – give you different things to shoot at. You also get three choices of shotgun – pump-action, side-by-side and over-under. And, more importantly, lots of things to shoot at!

Grapply Demo Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

Grapply Demo Let’s Play on the HTC Vive

I’ve said it before, and will no doubt say it again, but there are times that a flat video of a VR experience is a little, well, flat. This is a case in point.

Grapply is a game where you point your controller’s laser beam at things, and when you pull the trigger you get pulled toward what you’re grappled to.

Simple, right?

But like a lot of simple things, it works amazingly well. The sense of motion and freedom is intense, as is the feeling of raw speed. Which does not come across in the video, sadly, so you’ll just have to cope with me hooting and giggling like a mad thing and accept that yes, it actually is that intense.

There are only a few maps, and one game mode (race) just at the moment, but as a very-early-alpha-demo I think it does everything it should do. Recommended!
