Pinball Inspired Physics Puzzler HURL VR Launches on Oculus Store
September 24th, 2020 – Vilnius, Lithuania – Games and VR solutions development studio SneakyBox, together with digital product engineering company TeleSoftas, launches a virtual reality physics-based puzzle game for Oculus Store HURL VR. The experience is now available for Oculus Rift and Rift S devices.
The idea behind HURL VR was to create a pinball machine experience for modern virtual reality devices. The game was inspired by the simple gameplay mechanics of pinball, updating it with a level of tactics and skill that requires physical movements.
HURL VR begins as a simple ball throwing simulation and quickly grows into a tactical puzzle game by putting the players’ own techniques and reaction to the test as they progress through levels. Players advance in the game by hitting multiple platforms with a ball in correct patterns to unlock and reach the gateway platform. Each of the platforms has its own unique properties from boosting the speed of the ball to teleporting it to another platform in a new angle.
The stand-out feature of HURL VR lies in embracing the physical aspects of individual players. A shorter player might find it extremely easy to complete a certain level that requires a low and tactical throw, whereas a tall player might find it more challenging to tackle the same level. These personal human traits make each player’s game experience entirely unique.
