Your adventure takes place in Victorian London 1892, but dark deeds are afoot, aside from the distant cries for help in the fog, the streets seem eerily quiet but you are soon to realise why, the dastardly Professor Rattwurm is attempting to enslave the fine English folk with his army of clockwork automatons raging havoc all over town.
Using this new-fangled steam power, some ingenious state of the art 19th century gadgetry along with the guidance and expertise of Doctor Obadiah Springhorn you should be more than capable of victory.
From the safety of Springhorn’s elaborately furnished command centre in the Airship ‘Horndenburg’ the story unfolds as you plan your strategy and practise with the all the weapons which will be at your disposal. Your steam powered Exo-Suit has only two hands but your load out contains six unique and upgradable weapons which you can switch between during battle:- The Steam Hammer, The Steam Cannon, The Magnet Beam, The Rotor Saw, The Tesla Ray and The Rail Gun!
With some experimentation, a little strategy and a modicum of skill you should be able to complete all the missions and reveal the full story of ‘The Rogue Apprentice’…if not you will be hauled back into the ‘Hordenburg’ for essential suit repairs and you can try again!

Rich story mode, dynamic arcade mode + that steampunk feeling of Victorian London. Choice of weapons, British humor, attention to details + this is probably the only game with voice commands – which works great in VR. Highly recommended.

This is really good game with rich story mode. It takes long time to finish it comparing to different VR famous games, this game is huge and suprisingly it is not standard wave shooter. You can feel the mood of Victorian London locations and fight many different automatons. This game gave me so much fun and a bit of fear for example in Sewers level. Don’t give up if you fail a level, try more on easy – weapons will be ugraded. First time I thought I could play on hard….it was mistake 🙂
I love voice commands for changing weapons, it is really cool!!!
I played it before many times especially Seek&Destroy mode which is pure arcade. I recommend to finish story mode first, than try to beat current score in S&D, for example after long annoying day. Absolutely worth playing!

Love this Game, The atmosphere both visually and audibly totally immerses you in Victorian London. The story is great to follow and I also enjoyed the Seek and Destroy mode in this game.
OUTSTANDING… and well worth it.

Testé en viveport.
Vraiment pas terrible. Graphismes moches, gameplay sympa 3 mn mais pas plus, armes déséquilibrées…
Dommage, l’idée était bonne.

Some fool has mapped the controls for movement to the same presses as changing weapon, meaning that it is impossible to move around the levels without continually stopping to cycle through weapons.
Quit quite broken.
