Alpha Mike Foxtrot VR – AMF VR

AMF is a first person single player, multiplayer and co-op shooter. It’s set in open locations ranging anywhere from shipyards to the streets and buildings of a deserted town and some grungy shady looking places. Use your stealth to creep up on other players or BOTs with a knife or engage in automatic fire.   

Fitness Potential  

You won’t be down too long if you get hit with a barrage of bullets or explosives, there’s insta- respawn. Playing sniper and waiting around to pick people off isn’t going to burn many calories but running around and being sneaky and ducking and shooting quickly is going to do the trick. Get acquainted with the weighted vest to feel like a badass but also to kick your metabolism into beast mode.

Humble Pie

Everybody’s had to eat a slice of humble pie every now and then. So why not start with the POTUS. As a chef, you’ll throw freshly baked cherry pies in the face of a very tan and very puckered looking man. He’s hungry, hit him spot on and you’ll rack up points or miss and lose bigly. Don’t get fired. 

Fitness Potential  

Get some laughter therapy and throw some pies in the face of a very hungry man named POTUS for some light upper body exercise. Slingin’ pies at his face like a bullseye are going to be tricky, going to involve coordination, but is going to keep your arms and shoulders in good shape if you play it along with a workout program or other active VR games.

Cave Digger

Start digging! Use your pickaxe and machinery to chip away at layers of rock in a miners paradise. This is a bit of a grind but if you really swing that ax and collect gold, gems and other archaeological collectibles. Use explosives and gather loot, oil, and do it for money.  

Fitness Potential  

Mining on the frontier is going to be an upper body workout when you hold your arms up with machinery to carve away at rocks or as you use your pickaxe and other upgradable tools to hack your way towards gems and jewels, crystals and artifacts. Put some swing behind mining but be careful enough to not break what you find.

This is a low impact art simulator that uses your imagination, doodling, drawing or painting skills to make images and sculptures in 360 VR. This would be a great creative outlet for anyone but also can be used to get some peace and to gently use your body’s muscles to sculpt and paint on days you feel like you want to be creative, when you’re sore from working out and need to give your body a rest, or unwind.

Fitness Potential  

This isn’t going to be a high impact exercise, it’s a calm creative way to chill out and use your mind and body to create something. Lots of people feel physically calmer, focused and happier when they create something, whether that be a detailed sculpture in 360 or a funny doodle of a wizard you came up with on the fly.
