Ok so we’ve seen quite a number of virtual reality space shooters and some have been pretty good – but ‘End Space‘ beats the competition hands down. Launched at the end of 2015 for Google Cardboard and designed by Justin Wasilenko it only costs £1 so this one is a bit of a no-brainer.
The story is that you’re flying through space (3 different environments) in a destroyer and have to take down waves of enemies that get increasingly harder. Thankfully you get power ups to help you shoot down the other ships however it is still pretty challenging. End Space features triple AAA graphics and after spending some time wearing the headset you do get the feeling you’re zooming around in space. Its certainly one of the most immersive 3D games we’ve played on Google’s Cardboard and the destructible spaceships add another layer of realism. The sounds are also pretty sweet and you’ll regularly move your head to where you heard your enemies.
As End Space is designed for Google Cardboard you have to use the trigger to shoot down the enemies. It features fast paced one trigger click game play (bear in mind Cardboard magnetic button does not work with iOS device) or you can have automatic fire power turned on instead.
We recommend you check this VR game out which can be downloaded from either iTunes or Google play.
