Fruit Ninja VR

Fruit Ninja VR is a virtual reality adaptation of the fan-favorite mobile game by the same name. Grab hold of a katana (or two) and start slicing flying fruit. Rack up combo points by slicing into multiple pieces of produce in one swing, but watch out! It's not just fruit flying past your head. There are bombs in the mix that you must avoid, so keep an eye on what you're swinging at. Fruit Ninja VR features five game modes, such classic mode with one sword, and dual-wielding mode with two swords, and arcade mode in which you have a limited time to slice as much fruit as you can. The game also features zen mode, which doesn't have bombs, so you can relax as you swing. And if you're looking for a challenge, survival mode introduces cannons that fire at you.

Holoball is a modern reimagining of Pong for virtual reality. Using rackets in both hands, pass an electrified ball back and forth across the map until someone misses a return and ends the rally. Victory in this action-packed sports game requires fast reflexes and clever paddling. Smash the ball hard to send it back at high-speed, or hit the ball at an angle to add some curve to throw your opponent off.

Proton Pulse Plus

Zero Transform Inc. calls its VR game “the most diabolic game of atomic paddleball to grace the third dimension.” Your hands act as paddle that deflects a large power ball capable of destroying an enemy AI named M.O.A.I. You’ll have power-ups at your disposal across 50 levels. As you make your way through the game, the levels increase their intensity in terms of music and visuals, which all lead up to a psychedelic experience at the end.

Tricol describes Plannes as “a game of zero-gravity tennis,” but in truth, there’s a little more to it than that. Plannes is a like a combination of Proton Pulse Plus and Holoball. You’ll find yourself in a small arena against one opponent, like Holoball--but you’re not just trying to get the ball past your challenger. You must also hit objects located behind him or her. The first person to break all the targets wins.

    Thanks for the slideshow :)

    There's also a "launch bundle" available, 5 of the Touch-enabled titles sold together for $90. Which sounds kinda hefty until you notice The Climb alone is $50.

    In addition, they currently throw in Ripcoil for free on any Oculus Store purchase. So that's nice.
  • jasonelmore
    yeah the $90 bundle is a great deal, if you don't already own any of the stuff. Unfortunately for me i already bought the climb at retail

    I'm still waiting on "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!" to be put in there. Mixing the great "follow the lines with tempo", plus the additional VR element of moving all over the place cheering inside the story being told in the song, lol. That would be so friggin' awesome.

  • loki1944
    Good lord, I thought perhaps VR game ambition and quality would have evolved of late. Nope. Serious Sam, Superhot (though def not a fan of the artstyle myself), and possibly Arizona Sunshine/Quar look like actual games instead of demos/mobile/freemiumware design looking garbage.
