When someone recommended us Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game for review, we were quite excited about this concept. Combining platforming with puzzles on a galactic game show sounds like it is worth checking out. There is no room for failure in this game, as planets will be annihilated when you fail. This game is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift for the price of $19.99.
Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game is Pretty Decent
Being put to the test on an intergalactic game show is not for the faint of heart whatsoever. The stakes in Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game are very high, as failing to complete missions results in entire planets getting wiped out. As a player, you will control between one and three characters which need to find their way through 15 different levels. Every level has platforming and puzzle elements, which can be solved with the characters’ individual abilities.
Depending on how good you are with the puzzles and the controls, you will spend around five hours to complete this game. That is more than decent, as a lot of VR games offer far less content for the same price. None of the puzzles are overly difficult, but they are varied and pose a good challenge. Moreover, you can also create custom puzzles and share them with friends This will undoubtedly yield some very unholy concoctions, but it’s all in good fun.
A game like this will heavily depend on its controls. This is where Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game falls a bit short, as it can take a long while until you are comfortable with them. Using teleportation to move around works well enough, but it still takes a mixture of different options to get the effect you desire. Thankfully, once you master the controls, the game becomes a breeze to play and even makes it more fun over time. Quite impressive on every level, despite some early frustrations.
Graphically, the game is a mixed bag. Everything is easy on the eyes but not stunning or high-res whatsoever. Everything looks good, but not overly memorable. There’s also a pretty solid soundtrack, although that is always subject to individual tastes. Don’t forget the background story either, as it is quite hilarious all the way to the end. All in all, it is a delightful little package.
