Conjure Strike

Soar in zero gravity in teams of 4v4 and 2v2 in this MOBA VR game. Gameplay reminds me of arena games like Overwatch, except in VR. Conjure Strike has 6 classes of characters, with each one having a special ability. Use weapons like spells, fire, ice, blasters, and blades. Use defense shields and fight and communicate as a team.

Fitness Potential  

Floating and flying around in a zero-g MOBA game is going to practice full body coordination. Conjure Strike will test and practice how well you use your special abilities, dodge, and maneuver at the same time. This is a full body workout with a variety of play styles — sitting, standing, in room scale. It also has King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, and Assault and Escort for variety.

Dance Collider

Early access title. Dance Collider is a game where players will challenge a raver from the future to a virtual dance-off. There’s 24 dance battles, increasingly difficult game modes, and 8 dancers. Hit nodes (orbs) and connect with your inner body flow and the rhythm and intensity of F-777’s music.

Fitness Potential  

Dancing is great for full body fitness but with Dance Collider players will get to choose dancers to out dance. The nodes that get hit with arm movements are supposed to be placed so it feels like a dance. Shaking, shimmying, and sidestepping to the beat in room scale adds to the coordination and enhances leg movement for this game.

Hotel Transylvania Popstic

Early access title. Join monster DJ’s Mavis, Drac, and Johnny as they spin and bump music in this rhythm game. Use popstics and wands to hit orbs and maneuver through circular obstacles in slow-motion as they spin and move. Don’t touch the edge or get zapped by lasers! Make it through 9 songs and unlock bonus levels. Hear some witty commentary from Griffin the Invisible Man.

Fitness Potential  

Using the arms to connect with matching orbs will rack up points and get the arms fired up at the same time. Stepping through obstacles with lasers gives the legs a chance to squat, step side to side, and maneuver. This is a whole body game with agility, lasers and electronic music from characters from Hotel Transylvania. What’s there not to like?

VR Hockey League

Credit to: Vladislav Prygin

This hockey simulator is a good beginner’s training game for the actual sport. Players use one hand to handle the hockey stick and hit targets. Hit pucks past an NPC goalie and aim for targets across the net. Practice staggered distance shots and strengthen hand-eye coordination.

Fitness Potential  

This is a great hockey sim for people who want to see what standing on ice is like without all the sliding around and cold caboose. This is a great coordination game because of the different modes like Goalie Shooting, Accuracy Challenge, and Hardest. Practicing hockey puck handling works well with this game because of its accurate physics.

Crystal War

It’s AD 2517, you’re a soldier, and its time to shoot some overgrown uggo buggos in Crystal War with laser blasters and plasma guns. Toss bombs to blow up upright and crawling alien insects or heal yourself with the healing bombs when they break through barriers.  

Fitness Potential  

Defending the mining vehicle against bug attacks is the main objective of this game. Using room scale space to move, shoot and blast apart gargantuan alien insects is going to work the upper and lower body.
