The Oculus Rift VR headset can take you to incredible fictional places, and last night, it took me somewhere more grounded in reality, but still spectacular: my own personal, deliciously retro, '80s arcade.
Everyone loves a bit of retro arcade action. The golden days of gaming, when things were made to be mashed hard with your fists and buttons bashing was an art form. These arcade button coasters take me way back.
Insane doesn't even begin to describe it. Rocket Riot is the gaming equivalent of a flaming barrel kicked off a hill into a warehouse filled with laughing gas and fireworks. We're talking total freakin' bedlam.
Not sure how to classify Monster Burner. It's kinda sorta like a fantasy medievalist interpretation of Space Invaders. But it has another whacky dynamic at play, deeply rooted in puzzles, dominoes and fireworks.
