SMUSH.TV

Smash TV was created for virtual reality? Are we dreaming? Not exactly, because this is SMUSH.TV, but it’s still an intense and creative asymmetric VR game. PC players attempt to destroy the VR player through careful strategy. The VR player must survive using their skills and reflexes in the ultimate battle of brains versus brawn. With a party mode, up to five players can enjoy battling it out together. The VR player is sure to be in for a challenge.

Fitness Potential

When playing in VR, you’ll need to swing your body around quickly to destroy the blocks attempting to squish you. You’ll have access to guns, as well as a pow to destroy the Tetris-like blocks before they reach you. If things are too easy, you can raise the difficult level, and you can add in custom songs to make it more enjoyable. There is even a remote play option so your friends can join in from nearly anywhere and help keep you motivated.

Freediver: Triton Down – Extended Cut

If you’re looking for a narrative adventure in your VR fitness game, then Freediver: Triton Down is worth checking out. The Extended Cut is now available on Oculus Quest and PlayStation VR. It features an even longer story, where you’ll dive into a sinking research ship and tasks you with mere survival. You’ll solve puzzles and swim through the environment, racing to keep oxygen in your lungs until you escape.

Fitness Potential

As you make your way through Freediver: Triton Down, you’ll swing your arms as if you were actually swimming. Depending on the length of time you play, this can get quite tiring on its own. You’ll also swing tools like hatchets in order to get through certain areas, and you’ll need to work quickly in order to keep yourself from drowning.

RPG NPC Simulator VR

 

Now available in early access, RPG NPC Simulator puts you in control of someone other than a hero. In the game, you’ll make swords, shields, and other gear to sell to players, and you can go into several other professions. You’ll have the opportunity to flip goods you’ve purchased, and encourage even higher-level players to see what your shop can do.

Fitness Potential

Your fitness potential in RPG NPC Simulator depends on the activity you’re doing. Once you have a blacksmith, you’ll swing your hammer down on an anvil in order to craft new equipment. You can also mine materials out in the world with a pickaxe by doing a similar motion. Focus on these areas and you’ll be moving for much of your game sessions.

Jar Wars

Have you ever wanted to be Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Probably not, because that’s weird, but Jar Wars lets you do the next best thing. As a brain in a jar, you’ll battle against your friends using a variety of weapons, including good old-fashioned fists. You’ll even see liquid moving around in the jar that houses your brain, and a unique locomotion system makes it easy to get around.

Fitness Potential

After using your clams to grab a weapon, it’s time to fight. The game features guns that you’ll aim by moving your arms around. With melee weapons and boxing gloves, you’ll be swinging them violently in order to hit your opponent. They’ll be doing the same, so you’ll have to stay on your virtual toes in order to succeed.
