As someone that is thoroughly creeped out by aliens in general, the idea of fighting one is a mixed bag of emotions. The thought of going toe to toe, armed with only my fists, is borderline terrifying. However, if VR is good for one thing above all else, its facing your fears. Boxing Apocalypse gives you the chance to face this, very specific, fear on the Rift.
In this action-combat game, you will find yourself boxing your way through waves of aliens. Your goal, finding your way off their prison spaceship, saving the world from a pending invasion. Hey, it’s that or just waiting to die, so put your fists up!
Come Out Swinging
Instead of guns and swords, you’re going to be using your fists in this game. Mario Simone, the games designer, is aiming to make the fighting intuitive and fun. Complete with combo punches and power punches, the skill with which you fight is pretty much up to the player. As someone that doesn’t know a lick about boxing, I hope my flailing works to some degree.
You will get two levels to choose from, three levels of difficulty, and a fairly decent workout for your arms. The developers have said that a tournament and multiplayer mode are in the works, as well as PSVR support. You can pick up Boxing Apocalypse on the Oculus store now, for $19.99. So, get out there, overcome your alien fears, and punch your way to victory.
