"Rocket Drop" is back, in a special VR edition for use with the Google Cardboard device.
Those familiar with the original Rocket Drop will know what to expect. It's an endless, first-person, score-attack skydiving game, where you can fly short distances via the use of a jetpack. The jetpack requires constant fuel, which you can gain by collecting fuel capsules as you fall. Meanwhile, you also need to dodge the missiles that are constantly being fired at you!
The VR edition takes the original gameplay and pushes it one step further. Using a Google Cardboard kit, you can view the world in 360 degrees with gyroscopic head tracking. Also, you can hold the button on the device to effectively use your head as a joystick, allowing you to move within the game environment.
