Orb and the Stars
Fun and challenging platformer where you have to reach the exit as an orb while you can collect star shards in each level. The graphics are rather simple, but the game is fun and challenging.

Outergalactic Aliens Pinball
fun table, same wonderfully complex table layout, LOVE the length of play per game, i feel like it almost never ends; and reaching target and goals feels much smoother of play than previous table. lots of fun ingenuity.
overall, 8/10. just still not a fan of the style of the graphics/art, and the DMD still without much option to adjust/relocate/hide/resize, etc, but I play on a VCab, so i know im a minority for certain features. highly recommend for fans of the game.
and again, great background track, major earworm

Outergalactic Aliens Pinball :: a space/alien themed pinball game :: while a bit rough around the edges (especially in terms of UI) this is an interesting pinball board to play on, with levels. 6/10
Oh yeah! the best version of the great arkanoid. The one-man added to the collection. Classic with modern graphics, I think that there will be no better versions, except maybe some kind of 3D mod) but still I think the limit has been reached and there is no better option than this one)

I love Arkanoid since Dandy and have played a great many, but Darkanoid was able to surprise and delight. The familiar gameplay here is diluted with just a ton of different mechanics and chips that make each new level something interesting and exciting, and most importantly, not like the past.
Oh yes, there are also barefoot shoes, and believe me, they will organize a strong burning for you in the lower back, but it’s worth it.
Overall, this is by far one of the best (if not the best) Arkanoid I’ve played. Nice picture, sound, many levels and mechanics. I definitely recommend it.
Star Wars™ Pinball VR
Update: There was a patch today and the locomotion / safety issues seem resolved. I spent some time trying to reproduce them and could not. As this was my only real problem with the software, I am changing my recommendation, since almost everything else was really well done. I do play with a game controller, though, so I am unsure if the vive controller issues persist.
Short Review for the Busy Gamer
Amazing Virtual Reality Pinball

Long Review for the involved connoisseur
As I keep playing and enjoying it sooooo much, it’s time to share a review.
Space Block Buster
A friend let us played on his VR system & had lots of fun, time flew. Reminds me of playing racquetball but without knee aches. My family enjoyed hitting the blocks. Right now purchased it, we recommend it.
Breakout meets Racket Tennis 2019 for VR!
A highly polished VR game with great sound, graphics and game play. Both my 10 year old daughter and I love playing this game. It’s like a cross between a modern day Breakout and some sort of Racket Tennis. I love the power-ups but I think there are two de-buffs. I’m not sure if they are but the small ball and the baseball bat seem to make things harder. My favourite power-up is shooting gun. It really heaps blast away the blocks.
This game manages to keep things fresh and the Boss Battles are the best way of doing that. They are super challenging and help to mix up the play style. Highly recommended.
Good tables, another effort in development and it will soon perfect ( especially several cameras)
not a bad game, needs some general cleanup ( minor portrait mode issues, some interface cleanup/button work) overall tho, fun I’m not going to compare this to TPA, or FX3, it’s not a fair fight. it works well, good flow to tables, good themes, fun to play… its developing quite well.
Things That Bounce and Explode
I know now that I can’t handle that many B.A.L.L.s 😔✊
I love the progression and the skill depth!
This game is awesome!! Once you start to play, it’s hard to stop playing it! Lots of power ups, upgrades, random stages, everything that guarantees a high replayabilty. As a fan of both brick breaker and shmup genres, I absolutely LOVE this game and 100% recommend it!
Deep Under the Sky
In the undiscovered recesses of a faraway planet, beautiful and strange organisms live and breathe in a psychedelic Venusian world of dancing lights and metroid-like organisms. Similarly psychedelic to the visual style of the game is the soundtrack, with its equally as trippy and ambient qualities that build up and evolve with each successful move you make.
Deep Under the Sky uses a one-button control system that while incredibly easy to use is surprisingly deep in execution. The objective of each gorgeously organic stage is to fertilize each glowing plant with the debris from the exploded amoeba-like jellyfish that release from the base you control. As simple as that sounds reaching each carefully placed plant and spreading your pieces far enough to fertilize them will be a matter of careful aiming and finesse as you surpass each obstacle and navigate each twist and turn of the maze-like passageways.
The only reason I am not recommending Deep Under the Sky on Steam is due to how poorly it was ported over from a mobile system. It can be played with a single finger on a single button and, when it’s cooperating, the uncomplicated play style is suited to that equally simplistic control scheme. The trajectory of the jellyfish-spore creature is locked from the start of the level and the tools used to alter its path, as well as the order they can be used, are predetermined as well. Despite a small difficulty spike at the end, even getting the optional hidden stars isn’t made to be a challenge. Everything’s so relaxed and smooth that I was inclined to play through the entire game in a single sitting. Furthermore the visual style, though not quite stunning, isn’t as cluttered as some screenshots make it look.
