What the Bat?'s protagonist has baseball bats for hands. The game takes you through their life in a series of quick-fire levels.

Andrew fell in love with games when he would risk being mugged for his pocket money to bunk off school and play Double Dragon, R-Type, and OutRun at arcades located in some of the less salubrious parts of his home town. The Quest 2 sits proudly next to a Virtual Boy in his collection of nearly 50 consoles and handhelds - and the strength of his love for the old arcade experience is reflected in his belief that Rez Infinite and Robo Recall are the pinnacle of what VR has to offer.
Kartoffl offers 60 levels, with secondary objectives of collecting three stars and guiding every potato to safety in each.
Jupiter and Mars puts you in control of a pair of Dolphins in a post-apocalyptic undersea world still recovering from the damage wrought by a now-extinct mankind.
What Runner does brilliantly is take all the elements of classic arcade games and bring them to VR in a way that many others have failed to achieve.
Thief Simulator VR is an OK game if you can look past the jank, and it isn't the developers' fault that so many lacklustre games have preceded it. Nevertheless, I find it incredibly hard to recommend a game so lacking in polish that its regular failings far outweigh its inconsistent qualities.
Fundamentally there's not a lot 'wrong' with RuinsMagus. It's not broken or offensively bad; it's just that the entire project is so terminally average.
Rogue Ascent is a scruffy little underdog of a thing. It has a central concept that many will write off before they ever play it.
In Cosmonious High, the player, usually referred to by some variation of 'New kid', is the first enrollee from the 'Prismi' species at the eponymous intergalactic institution.
The Tale of Onogoro is far from the first game to suffer from a disparity between gameplay and story. In fact, it's a constant challenge in the medium that only the very best games even come close to getting right.
I think that a short game you'll play many times is better than a long one you'll play once, and Anshar 2: Hyperdrive falls very much into the former category.
The amount of value you will get from this 'one-time-purchase' version of Les Mills BodyCombat will greatly depend on how often you feel the need to change up your workout and your tolerance for the same music and instructor's patter each time you play.
Sucker Punch VR's modern evolution of this idea begins by having you defend, and indeed attack, a 10 x 10 grid. Each square on the grid represents a 'lane'.
