Extra care has been taken to ensure that VR Earth Attack is a superb experience for a VR newbie. During the opening level, the player is totally safe and can get adjusted to the intuitive "gaze to shoot" mechanic - there is no need to have a button on your headset (although if you have one, it can be used to select a highlighted item on the Options Menu rather than having to tap the screen). The second level introduces a slow but genuine threat from incoming ICBM missiles to gently increase the pressure on the player, with orbiting satellites coming from the sides. The final level is pure chaos, with an added sense of movement and sounds of the jet fighters racing past. Although players are destined to die during this suicide run, as their skill improves so will their survival time and score!
Designed to work with Google Cardboard and similar VR headsets in a side-by-side 3D mode, but can also be played as a regular full-screen game using motion controls (physically move your device around to steer your laser's crosshair onto targets).
Looking straight down will reveal the options menu, including a graphical detail setting and gyro drift correction. Press the headset button or tap the screen to activate any highlighted option, including switching off VR mode which switches from the side-by-side view to a regular full-screen one.
No adverts, time-locks or in-app purchases, buy once and play forever.
Addictive, fast-paced, space shooter with hundreds of enemies to blast. A great introduction to VR!
