The Maze VR

Think you can beat up to seven other people in a race to escape from a virtual maze? In The Maze VR, you will have to put all your VR skills to the test in order to prove it. The game contains sections where you must fire weapons, punch, solve puzzles, and more as you progress further into the maze. It’s like the ultimate escape room if the real ones had hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on insane sets.

Fitness Potential

The Maze VR is much more than a simple escape room. It contains areas where you can shoot basketball, fight, fire weapons, and navigate through laser traps. You will be moving for the majority of the game, and it’s varied enough to keep it interesting on repeated play sessions. With friends in on the action, you can see who has the best combination of brains and brawn. Just don’t rub it in too much if it’s you.

DreamFly

Nelly Furtado says she’s like a bird, but are you? In DreamFly, you can experience the thrill of flying with your own set of wings. Dive down low to the ground and pull up to pull off impressive stunts that real birds do without thinking twice. Hear the wind go by your head and look at the mountains in the distance as you soar.

Fitness Potential

DreamFly isn’t your typical VR fitness game, but it still has huge potential. This is because you actually have to flap your arms like a bird’s wings in order to fly. You must position your wings in order to get the proper airflow when changing directions. You’ll get the hang of it and will be able to take off quickly and move through the air with grace. You can also quickly realign your wings if you encounter any issues.

Gravity Pro

 

If you’ve ever played the classic game Breakout, then Gravity Pro’s basic concept should be apparent. Using two motion-controlled paddles, you must hit a ball and sent it up into a wall of bricks. This is easier said than done because of the ball’s physics, so you’ll need to stay on your toes. There are a few different modes to choose from, including one where the ball will move on its own.

Fitness Potential

You will be holding and moving two paddles for the entire time you play Gravity Pro. Depending on how hard you are playing, you can get a good workout in your arms and shoulders as you shift them from side to side. There are several different environments to choose from, each offering difficult brick layouts that will put your skills to the test.

FPS Infinite

The wait for Metroid Prime 4 is going to be unbearable at this rate, but FPS Infinite can help. The game uses procedural generation and includes support for both traditional modes and VR. You can upgrade a number of abilities and explore mysterious worlds. At its heart, it’s a first-person shooter, so you’ll need to watch out for dangerous enemies, too.

Fitness Potential

FPS Infinite features a number of enemies to defeat, and you can aim your weapons around corners to hit them by physically stretching. The game also has a speedrunning mode that can be good for fitness if you focus on hitting enemies as quickly as possible. Because everything is procedurally-generated, your play-sessions will always be different.
