“Inside an old arcade shooter, use your gaze to defeat waves of geometric enemies all in full VR glory!
Vektron Revenge is an old school style shooter done exclusively for VR. The playfield has not limits as you will be avoiding and destroying waves of enemies in a 360 environment. But beware of 3D obstacles that come in your way and use the devastating shooting spray of the Revenge power up wisely to clean up the levels from the toughest baddies.
The fastest you clean a wave the bigger the wave bonus. Concentrate on grabbing the blue pills coming from enemies to score extra but don’t be to greedy or you might end up trapped in a difficult position.

There are some pretty amazing games available for the Rift at launch, covering a whole range of genres, which means there should be something to satisfy anyone and everyone that’s gone and pre-ordered one (and it will be arriving very soon for some of you).
I’m totally jealous, because I can’t actually afford any of these new VR headsets, but at least I can vicariously experience the joy of playing VR by watching lots of YouTube videos of you guys playing the various launch games. So, make plenty of cool gameplay videos for me, please (of all the launch titles). 😀
