5 great new VR games for smartphones

smartIts certain that this Christmas VR headsets will be a popular choice for both children and adults alike. Most of these headsets won’t be premium brands (such as Rift or PlayStation VR) but more likely to be basic models compatible with smartphones. Developers have realised this is where the mass-market lies and as such a plethora of VR games for smartphones have been released for Android and iOS phones.

TheRealitySandwich have picked out our favourite five new VR games for smartphones across various gaming genres. We also recommend you check out our mobile VR gaming section for older classics.

Description
There aren’t a huge bunch of top quality VR action flight games for the smartphones however Fractal Combat X (CBX) is one of them. Originally it was not created for virtual reality but a standard arcade flight combat game. Howeve some clever designer has now added virtual reality support and you can now really immerse yourself into the action. Come on lets face it who’s not wanted to act like Tom Cruise on Top Gun. With great graphics and sound this is a no brainer download.

Description
Breaking bricks in VR has never been so much fun thanks to Proton Pulse. The developers have really ratcheted up the old brick breaking action to create a thumpingly fun and frantic game. You have to use your paddle to take down the M.O.A.I (an evil entity). Although it can get tricky there are power-ups such as space-time dilator to help. 50 levels with some stunning techno music. You’ll be buzzing after you play this.

romans from marsRomans from Mars 360

Description
It may have one of the most random names we’ve come across for a VR game but Romans from Mars is great fun. You and your trusted crossbow are the only things that stand between you and the maurding Roman Martians. Thankfully the crossbow doesn’t just lauch boulders but also elemental powers … let them feel the true power of explosions. Graphics and colourful and fun and will certainly provide you with a few hours of Roman destroying fun.
