InMind VR



InMind VR



InMind VR puts you in the role of a human brain troubleshooter shrunk to nano size who has to go through the synaptic neural networks of a patient and eliminate defective neurons in order to cure unwanted brain abnormalities. The game is reminiscent of the blockbuster hit movie Inner Space starring Dennis Quaid. This time however, you only have access to the brain and not the whole human body. Both graphics and sound are awesome though the game play sort of limits your movement through a predetermined path. InMind is one VR game that is available for both the Oculus and mobile platforms.

OhanaChan VR



OhanaChan VR



In the gaming world, not all games will be for everyone but there will always be games that will be enjoyed by different people. The old adage of some like it hot, some like it cold and some like it in the pot 3 days old, applies to video games as well. OhanaChan is a game about a flower and will appeal to those who love Japan Anime (majority of who would probably be young girls) and flowers.

The game is based on the popular Takashi Murakami Ohana Chan Flower artwork style for those who are familiar with it. The objective is to save OhanaChan (Miss Ohana) the swaying flower being attacked by the bees using your bubble gun. You can move around her to hit the bees but staying put in one location while aiming your gun would be a better thing to do. The sound effects, graphics (butterflies, bees, mushrooms, trees, etc…) and happy music give off the right ambience for the game play but will eventually get boring for those who would just simply like to try and experience the game. As for little Miyoko who keeps playing it, well, the game was probably really meant for their crowd.
