With Spiders, Kill It With Fire VR Satisfies That Primal Urge

Perhaps it’s best not to listen to The Who’s “Boris the Spider” while playing tinyBuild’s Kill It With Fire VR.

Kill It With Fire VR TItle CardThe only thing I like to see changed with tinyBuild‘s Kill It With Fire VR is that it should’ve been customised to include proper room scale tracking. On the Meta Quest 2, it’s included, but is very limited. The PSVR version handles it differently. The option to move around the limited space by either pushing the navigation stick or pointing to where you want to go isn’t perfect, but it at least gets people standing–the best way to play this game. The game deals with the rest. Using the controller to move might induce motion sickness. But if you can handle the nausea, the thrill of the hunt is on!

The older version is still fun to play, but to have that virtual world sensation delivers a unique experience. It’s like when I’m hunting them for real; whenever I spot a spider, I chase after these critters with a slip of cardboard and a cup to catch for release outside. I’m not that cruel in real life. Although, the more of them you can flatten in-game, the more satisfying the experience is. And virtual apartment you live in opens up! But the game doesn’t end there. It’ll take you outdoors too and into other environments.

Japanese Fever Dreams Are Never Made of These. NeverAwake to the Latest Update.

NeverAwake has a big update! Version 1.1 is coming tomorrow and fans will get more than a few nightmares to keep you awake.

neverawakeRelease Date: Jan 19, 2023
Avaiable for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5

NeverAwake is a twin-stick shoot’em up that’s ready to banish nightmares! This game breaks away from the conventions of horizontal and vertical shooters, and truly makes use of the 3D space to make fighting a lot more fun. And here, you fight against creatures that only the fertile Japanese Shinto world can dream up!

Set in the mind of a young girl’s horrifying dreams, what’s experienced may well hit close to home with the themes and motifs being offered. That’s because some therapists theorize the brain is trying to make sense of those waking world’s life experiences. In this game, you are helping Rem fight her problems! This game originally released in September 2022, and it now has a huge, mesmerizing update!

This multiplatform release is from Japanese developer Neotro Inc and it is published by Phoenixx.

Neverjam’s Spiderheck is All Out Crazy Fun!

Neverjam’s Spiderheck lets you become a wall-crawler to bash other ones to death! 

SpiderheckAvailable on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and Steam beginning Oct 22, 2022

Just how often do players get to play a spider in a video game? It’s like what the Spiderheck! All I remember are those retro games of yore–Black Widow and Spiders. As for the newer products, players are out to squash the eight-legged terrors than be one. Thankfully, Neverjam’s game lets you become a wall-crawler to bash other ones with random sci-fi tech! It’s fast paced and crazy fun.

A bit of ambidextrous skill is required because the left stick moves your digital avatar and the right to swing the baton (or aim). I got the Nintendo Switch version to enjoy. Unfortunately, it took an hour for me to get used to the interface, and I didn’t realise the X button was the shoot button. But, in order to play (even locally), gamers have to be a member of PlayStation Network, Xbox Live or Nintendo Network so those services can sync battles across the ‘net.

Kicking from the Hip with Kung Fu Kickball

KungFu Kickball Videos and Highlights - TwitchWhaleFood Games
Blowfish Studios

Sorry, Carl. Everyone wants to do Kung Fu Kickball, because it’s likely to be fast and fought with expert timing!

This 2D sports platform retro-style fighter features many traditional characters playing ball. From Boxers to Monkey King to Panda and Sifu Masters (to name a few), the look is crazy, and concept engaging. It borrows from many kids anime, especially Dragonball, and how can anyone not want to, in the game, legally knock your opponent down? They’ll stand back up in due time, but in this game, it’s all about ringing the bell to score one for the team.

The music is fun, and the only downside with this game is that while up to four players are supported, there can only be two opposing teams. Even in solo mode, the AI is reasonable enough to let players progress and the game allows you to set the difficulty for the uninitiated.
