Since its launch, Oculus Quest has seen lots of nice shooters however, as builders proceed to push the bar on higher-spec programs, we’ve longed to see if the standalone headset can sustain with among the extra progressive titles on the market. Now obtainable on App Lab, Sport Mode suggests it may possibly.
Developed by Virtuaport, Sport Mode is unashamedly a Boneworks clone and a comply with as much as the similarly-impressive Physics Playground. Not solely does the sport ape Stress Stage Zero’s signature ‘testbed’ fashion with helpfully-barren arena-based environments, however it additionally takes as a lot as it may possibly from the sport’s physics-driven fight. There’s even a slow-motion choice for fashionable kills. Try some gameplay beneath.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kw839Na7aBk]
Final yr’s gorgeous port of The Strolling Lifeless: Saints & Sinners proved that Quest might deal with extra demanding melee fight, however Boneworks stays the true pioneer of next-generation VR physics. Sport Mode capably brings its wave-based mode to standalone, permitting you to spawn weapons together with melee sorts like katanas and (in fact) a crowbar in addition to firearms like pistols and shotguns.
Whereas the melee fight is convincing in its personal proper, requiring heft to wield sledgehammers or holding enemies again as meat shields, the expertise additionally brings in enjoyable props like big orbs to push across the area. It sounds prefer it might get too hectic for Quest and it may possibly, however the great thing about App Lab is that you have already got all of the warnings in place, and the sport even already helps Quest’s experimental 120Hz mode (although that may put much more stress on the programs).
Sport Mode isn’t an particularly deep expertise, however it’s been some time since we’ve seen an motion recreation that embraces the complexity of VR physics, and this does it very effectively. The crowbar can hook to cables to slip down and you’ll topple stacks of bins.
There isn’t a lot to Sport Mode, then, however it’s a enjoyable distraction that may assist tide you over till we hear extra about Stress Stage Zero’s personal secretive Quest venture set within the Boneworks universe. It’s additionally obtainable on Steam if you wish to test it out there, although you’re higher off sticking with the real article.
