Crypt Hunter

Crypt Hunter is a first-person single player and VR fighting adventure game that has a pixel and blocky character and level design that will remind you of Minecraft. You’ll be fighting your way through quests inside dungeons and passageways where you’ll be fighting bats, skeletons, rats, and other beasts for loot and legendary items. You’ll be equipped with in-game weapons like an axe, sword, and mace to battle it out with bosses that increase in difficulty.

Exercise Potential

Because Crypt Hunter can be customized to the length of time you want to play, you can fight your way to fitness by beating characters and slaying bosses for as long or as little as you want. You’ll be given quests that will take your mind away from hacking apart beasts and skeletons as your arms, core, and legs get a workout. Being on alert and fast-footed will help you break a sweat and get you moving.

Making sure your character doesn’t get killed in battle makes for a great sweat-inducing workout.
