“OVERTURN it’s a videogame that’s not trying to reinvent the wheel, just done well, offering players an action filled journey with swords, lasers, grenades and a very silent sidekick. Sure the puzzles aren’t that complex, and you spend a lot of time waving your arms around punching people in the face, sometimes that’s all you need.” – Read VRFoucs’ Senior Staff Writer Peter Graham’s preview of OVERTURN.
OVERTURN is available now for £18.39 (GBP) down from the usual £22.99.

Redout: Enhanced Edition
“Redout is a tribute to the old racing monsters such as F-Zero, WipeOut, Rollcage, and POD.It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. The floating system and driving models are based on physics: each turn, slope, hard braking, acceleration, each turn and twist of the track will apply a unique force to the ship. A sharp low-polygon style blends meshes and terrains with the latest state-of-the-art shading and lighting effects provided by the Unreal Engine 4, creating beautiful and instantly recognisable aesthetics. Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes, vast desert plains: the melancholic, dystopian atmosphere of a semi abandoned Earth is the background for the most high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes.”
Redout: Enhanced Edition is available now for £8.99 (GBP) down from £29.99.
“Despite the input system, VRFocus would argue that Along Together is not a point-and-click videogame as Turbo Button suggest. It’s much closer to a platform-puzzle videogame in that the experience is less about objectives and item collection, more concerned with path-finding. This certainly isn’t a negative comment however, as Along Together is a welcome addition to the Google Daydream’s software catalogue regardless of how you choose to define it. With a pleasing, chunky and colourful art style and a fine assortment of puzzles, Along Together is an easy recommendation for Google Daydream owners.” – Read VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce’s review of Along Together.
Along Together is currently £11.62 (GBP) down from £15.49.
Soviet Lunapark VR
Step into the world of facility no.3826 in an alternate history Soviet Russia where the creations of Dr Pavlov have started going wrong and now the player must fight to survive. Team up with up to three friends and complete a number of missions and challenges in this crazy title that is full of creepy thinking machines and disgusting corpses all out to put an end to your life.
Soviet Lunapark VR is currently on sale for £8.69 (GBP) down from £14.49.

“In the year 2085, a huge multiplex construction site becomes a victim of a massive scale hacking incident. Due to the hack, the construction robots start to attack the workers on site. What could have possibly happened? Now you can witness it yourself, with two unique heroines to control and two different stories to unfold!”
Smashing The Battle VR is currently available for £6.39 (GBP) down from £7.99.
“ADR1FT proves that Oculus VR’s comfort ratings are not to be taken lightly. This may be a launch title for the Oculus Rift, but you might consider easing yourself in with some of the ‘Comfortable’ and ‘Moderate’ experiences before jumping into the deep end. That will be an understandably frustrating proposition for many fans, but if there were to be any ‘doctor’s orders’ about getting started with VR, it would be this.” – Read VRFocus’ Staff Writer Jamie Feltham’s preview of ADR1FT.
ADR1FT is available for only £3.74 (GBP) right now on sale from £14.99.
