Google Daydream is a VR headset which is going to be one of the major competitors for the Samsung Gear VR and was released towards the end of 2016. On release, the VR headset had limited phone compatibility to the Google Pixel phones but now it has further increased the phone compatibility to Moto Z, Mate 9 Pro, Zenfone AR, Axon 7. Keep checking the site to stay updated on the compatibility of the headset with various different kinds of phones.
Although Google Daydream was a little late to the VR party, this VR headset does offer a bunch of really good games to play on this VR headset. Let’s a look at the best games on the Google Daydream VR headset!
1. Hunters Gate
The Hunters Gate is an arcade shooter game in VR and is one of the most amazing experiences in terms of graphics and VR quality. In this game, you have to fight against demons to save the Hunters gate and then try to destroy the enemy’s land.
The entire gameplay is immersive and engaging and the graphics quality should be mentioned here since they are amazing making its overall presentation look gorgeous. You can use the controller to point and shoot the demons or even use the eye tracking functionality where simply gazing at the enemies will help you take them down much faster!
We all love Harry Potter, at least majority of us do and getting an opportunity to be in one such mystical land will be a dream come true. Well, this is possible through the Daydream VR title- Wands where you would be casting spells and perfecting your unique magic wands.
The game includes multiplayer gameplay making it even more exciting and there are several relics and other spells that you will discover. It is one of the best gameplay experiences in VR and if you own a DayDream VR then I do not see any reason for you not to be interested or excited about this game.
3. The Arcslinger
The Arcslinger is a shooting game in a cartoon fantasy world. In this game, you would be the first person holding the gun and trying to shoot all your enemies. The dead enemies leave behind coins and health which is needed to be collected in order to survive in the game.
The controls of the game work pretty well with the Daydream controller and the game has an immersive experience. It is indeed fun to play the game and the entire cartoon like animated world adds another twist to your entire VR experience. Watch the video trailer of the game and let me know what you think about it in the comment section below!
4. Drift VR
The game Drift VR is a mix of geometry and a roller coaster ride where you need to manipulate your path to avoid colliding with any of the obstacles. The player in the game is a bullet in the virtual world and you need to travel as far possible by dodging all kinds of obstacles that come in your way.
You control the path of the bullet with the help of your gaze and that is the best part about the game. Games get really interesting when simply staring at something regards to an action within a game. It is an amazing game and it makes you go a little dizzy after a while, LOL. Check out the video trailer below.
5. Twilight Pioneers
Twilight Pioneers is a first-person narrative game where you would be solving a lot of puzzles. You will be in the fantasy world and would learn how to use different weapons and master various skills to take the boss down. Like any typical narrative story, there is a dark lord in the end and you are supposed to take him down.
The graphics of the game are really beautiful. It is a little animated but even then the entire game looks mystical and really amazing in VR. The game has a really engaging content and you might end up playing this game multiple times. Loaded with puzzles and many other missions, the twilight pioneers is one of the best VR games on Google Daydream.
6. VR karts
VR karts is a racing game which is pretty interesting to play. It is more like an animated game and it has online matches and online leaderboard making the entire game extremely competitive. The game is to be played from the first person viewpoint and there are levels in the game which when advanced you win cups signifying the completion.
The game is pretty fun and not that tedious. If you want to play something for a 5-minute break then the VR karts is a perfect light game with enough intricate details to make the game extremely immersive and interesting. The game is light and easy to play yet difficult to stay on the top of the online leaderboard for really long.
7. Need For Speed: No limits
EA games finally decided to bring this game to VR and I can’t say how excited I’m. Being a huge fan of all the NFS games it is really amazing how you finally get to play this racing game in VR and with the VR quality of Google Daydream.
This racing game is one of the best games and the NFS: Most wanted was my favorite PC game from the bunch of NFS games that we had a few years back. The graphics and gameplay are great and there is nothing that can compare with the amazing racing experience that the Need For Speed game has to offer in VR.
8. Eve Gunjack 2: End of Shift
Eve Gunjack can easily be said as one of the best games that we have for Google Daydream. You would be playing as a first person trying to attack all the enemy drones with your missiles and weapons. This game involves more of team play and it is fun when you attack the enemy troops forming a team.
The real play begins in the multiplayer mode and the graphics make everything look extremely real. The entire game resembles the EVE: Valkyrie and Gunjack series which have been developed for the other VR headsets. It is the best shooter arcade game on the Google Daydream VR and one should not miss it, so go ahead and check out the video below.
9. Underworld Overlord
The Underworld Overlord is a game where you protect your world as an evil overlord who kills anyone who enters the overlord’s territory. It is a game where you need to save your territory from the enemy with the help of your evil army. There are different weapons and traps that are employed to kill any attackers that come your way.
The graphics of the game is really impressive and that is something that compels you on playing this game not that the plot of the game is boring but it is just a little mainstream. The only thing that makes the game look good is the detailing and the graphics.
10. Layers of Fear
Layers of Fear is a horror game on the Daydream VR where there would be a typical narrative and a couple of jump scares that would actually make you pee a little in your pants. It is an overall great game and the controller works well with the game.
It is a spooky game and you will like it if you are a horror game fanatic. It was a great experience playing the game, however, I think there is room for improvements and the game could have been a lot better. However, the game is pretty good for a smartphone VR headset and you should check try playing it and let me know how you liked it. For now, watch the video trailer below –
