SushiVR VR Game Roundup

During our last VR Game Roundup, there were several intriguing releases featured including Marvel’s Iron Man VR, an awesome accessibility app, and a virtual daptation of a popular mobile game. This week’s VR Game Roundup isn’t as notable but it is still worth checking out. There are quite a few ports arriving on new headsets, a game that allows you to rampage as a gorilla, one that allows you to become a sushi chef and several other worthwhile virtual reality games.

GrowRilla VR

Kicking off this week’s VR Game Roundup is GrowRilla VR, which is eccentrically described by the developer as a “procedurally-generated eat-em-up, stealth / destruction hybrid.” As a small gorilla that escaped from a military testing ground, you now can cause havoc by eating food and growing in size. You start off small, so sneaking is key at the start of levels, but once you grow big you can destroy buildings and take on everything from soldiers to tanks.

Fitness Potential

GrowRilla VR will constantly keep you moving your arms as you grab objects, shoot enemies, and swing anything you can get your hands on. It’s not the most active title, so it can’t compare to titles designed around fitness, but paired with some weights and you can get a good workout in while playing. With a new procedurally-generated island in each run, the replayability is endless.

SushiVR

Have you ever wanted to become a sushi chef? If so, SushiVR will allow you to live out your fantasy as you quickly prepare sushi for customers. You will look to make as many sales as possible within three minutes.

Fitness Potential

The three minute time limit makes this a nice quick workout that can be played multiple times. You will be moving your arms rapidly as you try to quickly prepare dishes for customers and it winds up being quite the intuitive process. It won’t beat the top VR arm workouts, but it can be a fun supplementary title.

Originally released on Oculus Quest, VRWorkout turns your open space into a home gym. It includes jumping, squatting, pushups, side planks, crunches, running, and burpee exercises. There is one important thing to note and that is the game doesn’t check for your physical surroundings. So make sure you have an open space to play as it won’t inform you if you are coming close to a wall.

Fitness Potential

This is a great total body workout and the fact that it is free makes it a must download for VR fitness enthusiasts. You can get a great workout in and the multiple exercises will target every part of your body. If you are serious about working out then this is well worth checking out. For pure fitness potential, this is the highlight of this week’s VR Game Roundup.

Release Date: July 5, 2020

Compatible With: Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift (previously on Oculus Quest)

Price: Free

Dance Collider

As regular readers of the VR Game Roundup will know, Dance Collider previously came out on Steam for every major PC headeset. Now it is playable on PlayStation VR and will allow even more players to enjoy its rhythm gameplay. The dancing game has 45 tracks to enjoy and there are motion-captured choreography for players to learn for each of them.

Fitness Potential

Dance Collider has been given a fitness rating comparable to using an elliptical by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise. So that means you will be getting a solid workout in while playing. Our review noted that it’s a great upper body game that includes leg and core movement as well. So you will be working all parts of your body while playing.

Developer/Publisher: EmergeWorlds PTY LTD

Release Date: July 9, 2020

Compatible With: PlayStation VR (previously on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality)

Price: $19.99

Layers of Fear VR

The popular PC and console horror game has been re-tooled for virtual reality and works really well. Previously out on PCVR headsets, it is now available for Oculus Quest. Early reviews are highly positive, so this is a well done port and you will get to enjoy the psychological horror to its full potential.

Fitness Potential

While you will use your arms to interact with objects, this isn’t really a fitness title, so don’t expect much of a workout. You will get your heart rate to increase from the creepy atmosphere, though. If you are a fan of horror titles then this is a good one to check out even if it won’t have you constantly punching or working up a sweat.

Developer/Publisher: Incuvo S.A. / Bloober Team SA

Release Date: July 9, 2020

Compatible With: Oculus Quest (previously on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality)

Price: $19.99

Wonderglade

Finishing off this week’s VR Game Roundup is Wonderglade, which was originally released for mobile phones and Oculus Go. As you can surmise by its origins, this mini game collection is more on the simple side. Meant for children, there are six games in total that will have players enjoying mini golf, shooting hoops with space hamsters, taking care of fires, tilting race tracks, casting magic spells and going “HAM” in a bistro. It’s certainly wacky enough for kids and high scores help the replayability.

Fitness Potential

If you are an adult then there is no real reason to check out Wonderglade. However, if you have children that enjoy playing VR titles, this virtual reality game will keep them moving around and it has plenty of replay value as there is a nice variety in each game and you earn tickets that can be used in-game.
