Re-imagining the Retro for VR gaming

7 Jan

Missile Command (Atari 1980)

Many ports of this game have existed for various 2D game systems in the past. With no surprise, a few 3D variations exist, like Inbound VR (for the HTC Vive) and VR Missile Control (for the Gear VR and Oculus). An early experiment on Atari Jaguar showed even back then developers were interested in VR gaming. Sadly, this version never fully materialized.

While a version for the PS4 is unlikely to happen (their Move controllers are ideal for this game), no platform is likely to offer the definitive version. Fans of this game may well have to own each type of VR headset to get the best variety of retro games reimagined to play with.
