Fight weapon swinging Orcs in this science fiction arena in outer space. Dark Nebula is a first-person shooter game with rockets and a machine gun as main weapons. There are falling traps and lots of other surprises to keep you moving around the arena. If you die in this game you’ll have to start from the beginning.

Fitness Potential  

Shooting involves the upper body while aiming rockets won’t do much for exercise. Using room scale is going to get the legs involved, helps with quick dodges away from Orcs, and can help you get to loot drops quicker. Use arm swinging locomotion to get more cardio out of this game.

Lolly Pang VR

This isn’t a violent game at all, it’s actually pretty wholesome for a first-person bow, gun, and laser shooter. The main objective in Lolly Pang VR is to aim, shoot, and defend the cookie factory from cute but pesky aliens. Pop balloons in a hurry, the more there are the faster you’ll want to go and the more points you’ll bank.

Fitness Potential  

To get the best workout from this game you’ll want to play Survival mode for endless shooting. Play Arcade mode if you’re shorter on time but can complete 5 waves and an alien boss. Use the bow and arrow (left and right side available) and honey gun for the better use of the upper body. Using the laser is more of a point and zap weapon.

Stardust VR

Credit to: LastnOni/Frozen Dreams

This is an early access game. Play this eye-catching and beautifully designed interstellar action game. Shoot flying space extraterrestrials as they elegantly flutter, float, and fly by. Use your shield to block damage. This game is not scary or blood at all. It’s actually calming in a way with the soothing music playing until it gets harder as you progress and encounter a massive boss.

Fitness Potential  

Shooting and shielding incoming attacks from aliens large and small is a good upper body workout. It looks like things start off slow and there’s an increase in the game’s pacing. Play in room scale to block and move legs side to side to prevent any damage from impact. As a mixed single player, co-op and multiplayer game, competition can heat up if you play in PvP mode.
