The most disappointing thing about Ikarus is that it’s not a full game because it was one of the most enjoyable experiences on the Gear VR.

A third person platformer, Ikarus begins with a helicopter crash where a father and daughter are separated after a huge robot whisks him away. Peering through a pair of goggles, you’ll need to solve some simple puzzles, move boxes using cranes and avoid the wandering robots to get to the top of the building.

There’s about ten minutes of play time and visuals are a little on the basic side. Despite that, it’s proof that virtual reality gaming doesn’t always have to be in the first person to feel like it’s truly immersive and fun.

Comfort rating: Comfortable for most
