i swear, i will never stop enjoying these small lightweight puzzle games :)
some short description
mind maze is a great logical competitive game where you need to capture most cells on a playing field, building walls
first couple of times you lose, then you work out some strategy, and start winning level by level, and you feel so smart - brilliant! and this is the very point where game is becoming addictive :) who does not want to be smart? who does not like to win? though i cannot say its very easy,

Very fun game to just pass the time, reminded me of the 15 minutes every school day where in tutorial id play the exact same game ona piece of paper with a friend. The AI could be improved on making them more of a challenge.
Alexander and Brandon were guests on The Hive VR, so our team were provided with keys to their game. However, on The Hive, we never promote anything we don’t like. I’ve played Tactera and I enjoyed that, but Starblazer has some other unique elements that I love. For one, this game has got personality. The loading menu has interactable objects, so you can get lost just picking them up, but perhaps not too long before you’re greeted by a sassy bot egging you to start the game. Once inside the training center, you can teleport around various display stations highlighting each ship for battle. It smartly displays the ships working in real-time so you’re able to gauge the timing and trajectory. The room could benefit from a few more guidelines, but I believe that’s in the works.

The gameplay is a first for VR, (I’ve played Final Assault), i prefer the graphical style/setting/80s vibe in this game. The gameplay/artstyle are the reason you won’t want to take your headset off.
From the funky soundtrack, to the Starcraft style gameplay, Starblazer is a game where your RTS skills will be tested in a new way that is only possible in VR. This game has many memorable moments for the small entry fee. For instance, small enviromental easter eggs that you can interact within your ships command center (i.e. The squid). If you have been looking for a new strategy game than this is your game. From the loading screens 80’s space vibe, Starblazer makes the RTS genre once more.
Still very much in early access and not bug free but this game has potential!

I gave a thorough review of the foundation and game-play of this awesome game here: https://youtu.be/mQSHdVCBt2E
I think this game is simple, easy and interesting.
However, I have decided the name appropriately, so I want to change it. Let me know if the developer knows.
A great game for jumping up and down in front of the TV as you scream and bash your friends out of orbit. There are lots of planets and game modes to keep me entertained for many evenings.
Too bad you can’t play against an AI.
This game is great, easy to learn hard to master. Such a good game to play with your friedns. When you learn all the ultimates it gets even greater,
Space Cube Racers
This game is racing game in space. So because it is a racing game, you can fly left and right, and since it is in space, you can also go up and down. The game uses newtonian physics and provides a simplified fly control (but not impossible in reality). Because it is using newtonian physics, speed is not limited but the faster you go the harder it is for your ship to turn.
The goal of the game is to race through gates and reach the final line in the least amount of time. The majority of the gate is only visible through augmented reality and your ship can get through them without problem.
Other game features:
a single player mode with 3 difficulty of bots to get through
a local multiplayer mode, using split screen for up to 4 players
a championship mode
for the motivated player: a blender (2.79) plug-in is provided to create new tracks
the tracks definitions (ship acceleration, number of laps, etc.) are stored and can be easily modified
the championship definitions are also stored in plain text and can be easily modified
you can put your own music (in ogg format) in the playlist directory to use inside the game.
Cubes … that race … in space ?
Space cube racers is a racing game located in space. Space can be a problem since there is no ground, no air, no gravity as well as incredibly cold and empty and overall not very exciting. Except that now, in this year of 21XX, that emptiness has been decreased by adding racing tracks and racing ships to race in those tracks. Space is now suddenly much more exciting.
Your ship will provide you air, mildy warm air. That means you can actually be in space, in your ship and not die of cold, or lack of pressure. Which is good.
But, I hear you say, outside of space, there is not a lot of air, well none to be pedantic, and controlling a ship in space must be extremely hard and frustrating, right ?
Wrong, because of this new technology: cube ships. A cube ship have 6 thrusters, one on each face. Inside that cube is a spheric cockpit from which you can pilot the ship. That sphere will turn inside the cube, which in turn will rotate the outter cubic frame in the opposite direction (because of some funny law of physics stating that for each action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And rotation is such an action). All that is monitored by a smart computer that knows which thrusters to fire to move your ship in the direction you are pointing. And this smart computer will then ensure that everytime you turn, the ship
move toward the direction you are facing.
That makes navigating in space a child’s play. Well maybe not a child’s play… but at least a lot less frustating and hard than it used to be. You will still have to show some skill… after all this is what racing is all about.
Oh i forgot one minor point: in space you can go as fast as you want. But don’t. How retarded is that to have this immense power to not use it? Well, as the wisdom says: “speed without control is nothing”. And the faster you go, the more difficult will it be for your ship to turn. Which is a problem.
This game have a lot of “flashing” effect due do getting through many gates very quickly. This helps provide a good sensation for speed, but will be problematic to people prone to epileptic seizure from visual stimuli. EPILEPTIC PLAYERS BEWARE. Better be safe than sorry.
This game has been designed to be primarily used by gamepads with good analog sticks. As it is a PC game, you can use your keyboard and mouse, and event play a four player game with a single keyboard, but really, this is less than optimal (but it could be fun :-). Also, joysticks can be used, but by personal experience, beware of tendonitis. Even though I play some space sim with a joystick, without any problem, this game is too fast paced and even a short session tends to hurt my wrists.
This game has been developped and is being maintained by a single person. This means you should expect some problem with the game, especially with your controller. While I tried to use a very inclusive method to handle controllers, I do not have many type of controller to test and have them work out of the box. I provided you with all the tools to be able to configure any controller you can throw at this game, and the game will make its best to provide you with a good configuration. But expect to configure your controller before being able to play.
Finally, this game was designed with analog controls in mind. You can play only with your keyboard, even in four player mode, this is clearly not the recommanded way to play this game . For the best experience, use
Asteroid Arena is a player vs player, space ship battle arena, where you gather up your “friends” and have fun shooting around in an asteroid field while trying to be the last ship standing. World is shrinking, time is running out and you need to find the other ships, weapons, protection and boosters before the others find you!… Or just hide in a nebula cloud until everybody else have destroyed each other.
The game is played with 2-4 players either on the same computer (with split-screen) or on different computers by inviting your Steam friends.
For playing on the same computer it is highly suggested to use gamepads as some keyboards have limitations on how many keys that can be pressed simultaneously.

Simply put this is a great game with superb dogfighting, tons of meaningful customization and much strategic depth! However if you are looking for causal fun where you can just hop in and shoot at some starfighters that’s probably not the game for you.
It’s not very clear from the description but essentially this is a MOBA. That’s not a bad thing at all as the MOBA format fits the dogfighting just perfect!
So to describe you the mechanics: every match there are two carriers shooting the hell of eachother and here you come with your two fighters trying to destroy the enemy carrier first. In order to be successful you and your teammates should concentrate on one of its 9 parts at a time (2 of which are inside the hull itself!). What’s great is that by destroying a part you not only are helping to bring the enemy carrier down but depending of the party you’ve destroyed that puts the enemy team in a specific disadvantage (for example if you destroy the Ammo Warehouse the enemy team won’t be able to fill the ammo of their fighters to the full set). As I mentioned earlier you bring two of your fighter to the match. You can switch between them by docking with the carrier. When docked your fighters get their ammo refilled and their shield gradually recovering. As for the fighters themselves they are fully customisable. Each fighter consists of 12/13 parts (depending on the number of weapons) which you can combine as you see fit. When using the parts in a match that later unlocks upgrades for them and gives you access to new ones. All this give the matches great strategic dept and variety.
EDIT: Sadly, while this remains a great game, the lack of players online raises a big red flag for a PvP game such as this, even though it is possible to play with and against Bots. If you pick this game up, be wary that you may not find people online to play it with. This is very sad, it’s so good.
This is a great title, which is saying something coming from me - I am not traditionally a huge fan of PvP games, but this does tick the boxes: solid gameplay; interesting mechanics; rewarding intelligent and strategic teamplay.
Orbit Outlaws is an absolute blast! The combat is fun and engaging with just the right amount of challenge and chaos. The tanks and characters look great in and out of combat. There are multiple upgrade options that have me excited to keep playing and progressing. This game is a solid buy even before online multiplayer has been added. With online multiplayer, this will be a must have.
Cannot recommend this game till there are more choices in Weapons, chassis and pilots. A faster method of starting a co op match with same settings would be appreciated as well.
Engaging game play in local co op
Lacks of choices in upgrades and mods
Mods go missing and are buggy to apply (edit: in the local co op mode )
Spawn of player 2 is out of playable area at times in specific maps ( in the blue zone)
Edit: Game crashes pretty often
