If you like Tron, Vr, or just fun this is a blast, very simple but very fun

Great game(s). (Since there are a few games within this game)
Super fun, great concept and execution. Gameplay is smooth and fun. Graphics are good. I have nothing but good to say about this. Nice to be able to pick up a game, play for a bit then put down. More casual than life replacing. Definitely worth the $20. Great way to show off VR and support a great developer 😉

Love these arcade style games , great graphics, simple to play and lots of fun. fracture reminds me of the old 80’s breakout game, it’s addictive and awesome.

It’s three games for the price of one, and all three games are excellent. Arcade Saga comes with a Bow Simulator, 3D Pong, and 3D Rachet Ball. It’s well worth the $20. 5/5

I like it is very sporty .. attention to the space of the playroom ..

Loads of fun! Looking forward to more content (please developer/s).
This gave me a good workout and one of the fewer games to make me sweat without even realising it.

This is a great game if you need an arm workout, easy to play not so easy to complete (getting 3 stars on all levels), a few of us have played it and all like the different games, I like smash (wish I could best the end of level boss though) best. I feel any game that has the “just one more go” element must be good. The game play is simple and basic and you dont need lots of space, thumbs up from me.

Nov 03, 2017
Wow… If you want some exercise this is the one. Some of it is a bit like playing Squash, but it is all fun. I recommend this game as fantastic.

Excellent !! jeu super soigné, super joli, très fun avec du challenge, difficile mais pas insurmontable, je suis en sueur ! BRAVO LES DEVS !

Overall this is nice trilogy of a VR take on arcade games. I really enjoyed playing it. Nice graphics and very enjoyable. Quick rounds, very fun, immersive, and challenging.
Totally recommend!

I like this game a lot. My favorite is the one with the giant cubes. It’s like you are part of the old Breakout game. Beautiful graphics and fun to play.

Jun 13, 2017
Effectivement, l’anglais par défaut ça aurait été une bonne idée. Sinon, très bon jeu. J’ai bientôt fini le mode hard! 🙂

The best thing for VR imo right now. Spent hours upon hours in it. Working out while playing is the best way to get in shape for summer.

May 09, 2017
nice VR experience, i would definitely recommend it. Higher levels of the game gives you a good exercise and its possible to level up skills making the game last longer.

Out of all the viveport subscription games I got this was by far the best. Bowshot is addicting, both bow types are great and 20 levels including the 4 boss levels are fun. Along with being able to choose permanent powerups and reset the powerup points as needed.

The other 2 modes might not be my cup of tea but a ping pong type game and a smash the ball into the various targets game can appeal to some. In VR they are still pretty nice games and Bowshot alone was worth the playthrough!

Recommended for Viveport subscription. Game has heart. Lot of love went into this and it shows! Long intro and backstory but sit through, it helps you out. Voice instruction tutorials are useful. Very colorful graphics and sound. Great way to bring arcade dynamics into VR, feels familiar yet fresh — that’s hard to pull off.

Apr 09, 2017
It´s very fun to play (tried via vive-subscribtion). I´d love to buy it as long as it is on sale, but viveport won´t allow you to buy a game you are using in your subscribtion 🙁

Apr 08, 2017
How can I change my name from “Viveport user” to my own name in the high-scores? 😛

Happy Birthday!!

5 stars!!

Amazing fun game, a bit easy but very enjoyable and perfect for VR fun!

May 12, 2017
Some nice intro to tell you what you’re playing, as well as a tutorial taking you through the nuances of play. Then three polished arcade games.

It’s reasonably hard work, but still a lot of fun.

Feb 20, 2019
excellent game/ lots of fun and good music
gets harder especially when you get better at it

Nov 26, 2018
I really liked the one with the bat. The other two were so so.
The pong one has potential, but the way you have to hold the shield is akward. Should be more like a ping pong paddle.
Good gift overall, thanks

Nov 23, 2018
So this is just a standalone version of the game from OASIS Beta?
The game itself is fun but I’ve played it before within OASIS.

Jan 27, 2018
I have nothing bad to say about this game. Its does what it does perfectly. This is one of the first games i load up for newbies to VR.

There is a down side where you may find you hit a wall if you are in a very small playspace. You can get around this if you are aware of your limitations, but newbies who aren;t may break a controller. Make sure you have chaperone turned on!

Damn was that fun!

Graphics are simple but very effective, with a fine polish and no rough edges. The sound and music wasnt distracting, and blended right into the overall experience.

Good content, three mini games, each cut from the same cloth but repackaged into fun and unique experiences, giving the game a diverse feel. The controls are tight, and while simple to get a hang of, I quickly learned there was indeed a level of skill and may I say artform involved at the higher levels. The game is addicting, a workout and at times awe inducing.

play it

Decent bunch of arcade games that get you moving!
Also very entertaining as a spectator in the room with the player.

Jul 03, 2017
I only played the tutorials but it seems pretty fun.
However it needs a setting for left-handed players. In Bowshot I can’t pick up the bow with my right hand so I have to switch my controllers. Then switch back for Fracture. I need to play more to figure out which hand I like the bat in, but a setting to switch hands would be great.

Simple, but yet very fun game. Make sure you have a lot of space to play this to avoid hitting things with your controllers. Game modes are a good way to get active too, expect to sweat.

May 25, 2017
Very nice Game , getting started into the world of VR.
Good Challenging lvls, fun to play has a good bit of replay value.

That was pretty cool! There was a female voice explaining the game, but all the text was japanese..which makes it hard to understand what the powerups do… I hope this will be improved soon

Apr 08, 2017
English language was hard to find from options but it is there… 🙂
English should be default…
I really like this concept 😀
Very retro 🙂

Just played for 30 minutes, reminds me of Tron, 3 games in one, nice aesthetics, matching designs, different controller use and physics in each game. enough levels to have fun for some time.

Nov 25, 2018
Smooth and pretty. Not a lot of meat here, and say sayoonara to your light fixtures. Reminds of me of playing 3-D Pong for DOS.

Oct 06, 2018
Excellent game, lots of fun, fully agree with the other reviews, I would give 4 stars if they catered for left handed people. Hopefully they will change this and add as an option.

I’ve updated my review after playing for a second month. This is three basic arcade type games updated for VR. Fracture and Smash are like VR Pong and Breakout or perhaps Arkanoid and they are a lot of fun and the reason why I still recommend this as a subscription choice. However, Bowshot is unplayable. I have a bug where every time I draw the bow, my bow glitches out spinning around fast and randomly and making it impossible to aim. I found I could get past level one by not drawing the bow fully, but by the second level I found I was either not registering I had drawn at all or it was glitching out insanely. Basically 1/3rd of this game is a complete waste of my time. Despite this, I still get plenty of play out of Fracture and Smash. Had Bowshot been to the standard of the other two this would have been 4 or maybe 5 stars. Please fix bowshot!

Extremely simple, with some parts shining and other parts faltering. Overall this is a very basic experience which was mainly satisfying because it was very physically active than anything else- it could be downright exhausting! The aesthetic was also alright, although it definitely wasn’t anything spectacular.

Hi, bought this to hopefully use with a mixed reality headset, as it looked good.
Sadly, not visible in revive and I cant access my library in viveport.
Wouldnt it be nice if OpenVR worked….

Nov 23, 2018
Ce jeu a l’air trés bon, seulement on ne peut pas choisir la main que l’on souhaite pour tenir son arme. Comme je suis gaucher, je ne peux pas jouer !!! 🙁

Aug 02, 2018
When ever I grab an arrow the bow goes crazy spinning and inverting all over the place and you cant do anything 🙁 otherwise awesome

Apr 06, 2017

way too easy, everything felt slow paced. The tutorials seemed to be targeting 5 year olds and the over simplistic games were boring.

Nov 06, 2017

Worst VR game so far. Physics are wonky at best, the ball in smash follows no reasonable physics while at the same time changing speed unexpectedly. No immersion what so ever. If this was a non VR title there is no way it would be released in its current state.
