Don’t let the fact that this is a go game fool you into thinking it’s only for little kids. go BrickHeadz Builder VR may instead tap into your inner child that will find joy in building three-dimensional creations.

There’s a “magic book” that you can follow if you want some guidance, or you can go with a free-form mode. Another nicety is there are no in-app upgrades to contend with. st download the free app get to exploring. It’s also worth noting that Daydream isn’t recommended for those under 13, so you’ll need to tell the littler ones they need to be a bit older before they can slap on the goggles.

If you want to experience ttrue virtual reality video, then Next VR is the right way to do it. This isn’t like some of the apps that just throw in a screen some shrubbery call it a “VR experience.” 

This apps takes you inside an NFstadium, rock concerts, monster truck rally, various other live events. I was truly impressed with the views, looking around at the crowd at Metfe Stadium as well as the crowds bouncing around during a Coldplay concert. New content shows up all the time, so be sure to come back regularly take time to explore all of the different video options.

This game is another excellent implementation of the Daydream Controller, in this case used as a first-person shooter. The storyline has a Halo-type vibe, with you partaking in an epic space battle using your controller to blast away aliens.

The environment is immersive, you’ll be turning your head often to view the alien spacecraft zooming by to track down all the enemies. There may be some sticker shock with the price, but welcome to the world of VR gaming where the experience is an entirely new level up from traditional mobile gaming.
