Most people have a love-hate relationship with fruit. Even though fruit is delicious and healthy for your body, it is evident there are some frustrations people want to take out on this form of food. With Fruit Attacks VR, Nanali Studios have come up with a solid concept. Although it was a mobile VR game at first, it is now available for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift as of right now for the steep-ish price of $14.99.
Attack the Fruit With Killer Robots
On paper, it makes virtually no sense to combine a fruit-themed game with killer robots in virtual reality. In real life, however, it will effectively work surprisingly well. Fruit Attacks VR offers a lot of interesting gameplay which a lot of people will appreciate. Your job is to fight through waves – and peels – of oranges, bananas, strawberries, and so forth. Time to put the juice on the table, as they would say in a horrible B-rated action movie.
The game itself is not overly complicated by any means. The visuals in this game are bright and colorful, which only adds to the overall experience. On the controller front, there are some things to get used to, especially in the way of how the controls work. You will need to own two controllers to shoot bullets at all of the incoming fruity invaders. Although this seems counterintuitive, it works surprisingly well once you get the hang of it. You can also switch between three different robots to successfully complete levels throughout the game.
These three robots to choose from also makes Fruit Attacks VR all the more enjoyable. It adds a degree of strategy to this game, as you need to remember which type of robot works best against which types of enemies. With more waves cleared throughout the game, your overall difficulty will ramp up rather quickly as well. It is good to see this game is not a cakewalk whatsoever, although things do get hectic a bit near the end. It’s still great fun, though.
Even though we fell in love with the game from day one, it is clearly not a game everyone will enjoy. Anyone who loves shooters, arcade games, or simply hates fruit will certainly enjoy this game. At the same time, it is still a mobile-first VR game. There is nothing about this game which screams “mobile” whatsoever, though, but a multiplayer option would certainly help spice things up a bit. For a single-player game, Fruit Attacks VR offers a lot of content for a fair price. PS VR Owners will get access to this game near the end of April, according to the developers.
