Downward Spiral: Prologue reviews and comments

The Game Mechanics are really interesting. I'm absolutely not a Multiplayer friend, but I think that with this Kind of Getting around and in this Setting, you can put a really exciting Game through. This is just the Prologue, so you can hope for More. The €2 was worth the Test Run to me anyway and if You like Multiplayer has even more to test ...

If you loved lone echo (only available on oculus store) you will love this (small) before taste. For the others I would say darken because of 1 it is cheap and 2 you should not have any nausea at all. Small note to the owners of oculus rift: as usual the controls are made for the Vive and you end up with controls not adapted to the Touchs.

Product received for free Finally a VR Game with Weightlessness and no Motion Sickness! Very well succeeded and the Prologue makes You want more. For the Price of $2$ absolutely ok, Experience but correspondingly short.

A beautiful Entry point into Downward Spiral. Good Physics, good Graphics and good Gameplay. The only really bad thing about this Game is: I want more! It is too short for the Prize at 20 min Solo play time. Nevertheless, I am happy to experience this 20 min and look forward to the Continuation. If I paid with the Money I paid for Downward Spiral, who supported further Development of the Game, it was worth it to me. Apart From the far too short Playing Time, I give Downward Spiral 9/10 Points.

Cool! Great Control. I wish I could hang myself freely in the Room, then you can't feel the Feet on the Floor anymore. Due to the physical Ground contact, the Space feeling is somewhat lost, in the Beginning you quickly drift against a Wall and if you repel yourself too Tightly, you immediately bang on the Opposite ones, but over time you quickly learn to yourself with the help of the many Handles and In the Spacecraft. You get a little Booster Later, so you can float more controlled. I didn't have a Second Of Motionsickness. A great Game for all Space Fans!
