The gamer has to use the day dream view controller or “wand” to bounce orbs, after drawing lines of deflection on a given grid towards a goal. After the given stage has been completed the ‘reward’ is growth of given flora that crops up in the background. It really is an amazing game and the narration by miss perkins makes it a delight to play and the puzzler is worth downloading.

VR Karts: Sprint
The game is free but that doesn’t mean it is valueless. It reminds one of the Mario kart and offers a number of courses to choose from. The game controls are superb and definitely the highlight of the game. You aim power ups at the enemy and all you have to do is to look in their general direction, this however is not the most fun part as steering of the vehicle is a total thrill. You hold the controller, daydream, in both your hand and when you tilt the car moves in that direction. The controller has set the pace for future virtual reality gaming developers.
