Shiro neko VR Project is a port of the mobile game Shiro Neko Project designed specifically for the Oculus Rift. Your view of the game is from a third person perspective. Behind the character, but you’re free to look anywhere you want. The game has a toy-box feel like and the characters look like little action figures running around a map. The big head, tiny body anime style also add to the whole toy-box feel of the game as well. The game is very colorful and runs at a smooth 75 FPS. There are a few camera issues and you are tethered to your character so while you’re free to look anywhere you’re still being pulled by your character.[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”shadow” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”35″ sep_color=”#906bee” icon=”” width=”50%” class=”” id=””][one_half last=”no” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]The game play is your typical hack and slash RPG; you run around a map, take on quests, attack enemies and collect treasure. You start the game on a floating island with magic portals that lead to different levels. You enter these portals with the help of an AI partner in order to defeat the boss at the end of the level. Besides defeating the boss, within each level there are additional bonuses objectives such as opening every chest or defeating a number of enemies. At the end of each level you earn some gold and unlock your AI partner as an additional playable character which acts as additional life if you happen to lose your entire HP.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”yes” style_type=”bottomshadow” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][imageframe lightbox=”yes” style_type=”bottomshadow” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][fusion_text]There is a character selection screen where you can load you party with up to 5 different characters all designed well and given their own unique style and personality. Here you can switch up your party and check stats but not much else. The game lacks equipment or leveling systems as of now so customization is limited.[/fusion_text][imageframe lightbox=”yes” style_type=”bottomshadow” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”#906bee” icon=”” width=”50%” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]You can control the game with a keyboard, mouse, gamepad or even through a smartphone app named colopad. I played using an Xbox 360 controller and had to adjust most of the controls as the default controls are kind of wonky. Along with a standard attack button you can also roll and use special attacks. You can also look at stats and swap characters by pausing the game which is done by looking to the sky. All the characters are controlled the same but play very differently. Along with different weapons and stats, they have slightly different attack patterns and different timing when trying to land a combo.

Though the gameplay is pretty simply and lacks the depth the mobile game contains, it’s a fun little game that can be seen as preview of things to come. If you have an Oculus Rift I recommend you give it a try, you can download it today at the Oculus VR Share Website.[/fusion_text][/fullwidth][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”#906bee” icon=”” width=”50%” class=”” id=””][separator style_type=”shadow” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”10″ sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””][fullwidth backgroundcolor=”#12151c” backgroundimage=”” backgroundrepeat=”no-repeat” backgroundposition=”left top” backgroundattachment=”scroll” bordersize=”0px” bordercolor=”” borderstyle=”” paddingtop=”10px” paddingbottom=”10px” paddingleft=”0px” paddingright=”0px” menu_anchor=”score” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]
