New Rift And Gear VR Releases For Oculus Home

Spider-Man: Homecoming VR Experience, from Sony
Price: Free (Rift)
It’s finally time to put on the webs and become Spider-Man for the first time in VR. This tie-in experience to the upcoming Homecoming movie gives you just a taste of what it’s like to be Peter Parker, letting you fire off different types of webs and have a close encounter with the villainous Vulture.
Recommendation: Sadly, the Spider-Man experience isn’t really worth checking out even though it’s free. It’s short and uninspired.

The Lost, from PocketMemory
Price: $2.99 (Gear VR)
If you remember Dead Secret it was basically a murder-mystery style adventure game. The Lost looks very  similar, with a crime scene of  its own, although with  noticeably less Western-focused  influence. It appears to be adapted from  a previously released Google Cardboard version.

J Sports VR, from JSports
Price: Free (Gear VR)
This is another Gallery app, which means it wasn’t curated as well as the Oculus Home store. The description page isn’t even in English, but basically this is just a lobby for you to hang out and  watch sports videos in.
Recommendation: Skip, most of our audience likely won’t understand what this is about or for.

Block Rocking Beats, from Sander Sneek, Jochem de Klerk
Price: $10.04 (Currently Discounted)
Block Rocking Beats is your virtual sound studio where up to three players can play in a virtual band. You can play, record, and share your creations.
Recommendation: This is a cool and fun social music experience. Grab  it if you have interested buddies.

Distant Nightmare, from Field Of Vision
Price: $1.59 (Currently Discounted)
Distant Nightmare pulls you into a dark world of a child’s nightmare. You must ride your bike through the mysterious world to survive the night and wake up.
Recommendation: It’s not expensive and has a solid, creepy atmosphere. Worth a look if you like this genre!

 Zombie Hobby VR, from Pointlight Games
Price: $17.99 (Currently Discounted)
There are plenty zombie shooters in the VR ecosystem, but this one has a different flavor. Zombie Hobby forces you to use affordable objects in your daily life as weapons to take down zombies with a unique design style. It looks a little like zombies invaded Superhot VR.
Recommendation: This zombie shooter brings a unique style worth checking out.

Ghost Ship, from Gone Coyote
Price: Free
This is a full CGI cinematic VR experience where you get to explore a ghost ship.
Recommendation: It’s a short, 2-minute experience, but hey nothing to lose!

 VRTGO, from VRLive
Price: Free
VRTGO is a platform for artists to share their stories and experiences directly with their fans around the world. Here you’ll find 360-degree concerts and other interactive music experiences.
Recommendation: Add this to your collection of VR content aggregates.
