BEST CARDBOARD GAME YET This is a beautiful app as it is and the imagery is amazing. This alone makes it a good experience but not an incredible experience. However...using my cheap red samurai controller, I found a glitch that lets you jump over the wall using the "4" button. It takes a little bit of finagling but eventually in the right spots and consistently pressing that button you can jump over the wall! This is where the game goes from good to absolutely kick butt awesome. So yea, at that point you can explore the villages and the surrounding landscape as well. I could seriously spend hours playing this app because of that glitch. I have no idea why the developers didn't include this in the game to begin with.
Brilliant on high settings with sound Very clever using google cardboard, samsung S4. My 5 year old naturally used stop/ start walking to get good viewing angles. Was amazing. I felt sea sick when moving fast sometimes, but thats just me and VR, and fairground rides.
Favorite VR App So Far This is a relatively simple environment to explore, but I think it is one of the best examples of what this technology is capable of. My galaxy S5 can only handle the "high" graphics setting at certain points and it always lags at very high settings.
Amazing! I got over the wall! Fantastic app. I bought a cheap Bluetooth controller and can now jump in the game. At the side of the villa there's a big tree and some barrels. I jumped up against the tree which lifted me up and then I was over the wall. The whole village is fun to explore, then I fell into the water. Underwater is like being back up the hillside. Then I fell over that hill and into the sky, where I'm still falling. Very surreal but very cool! I hope you guys add more to the experience beyond the villa itself.
Controller issue Im on my Lg K10 using the vr shinecon bluetooth controller i can move forwards and backwards but cant turn around i had to walk backwards to get in the house just guessing where the door was i dont have gyroscope on this phone but read the app was still usable since it required a controller.
Fantastic One of the first VR apps I downloaded and still love going back to it, to have a look around. Has anyone else made it over the wall? I have. Your able to walk around and go down to the water. Probably not supposed to be able to but hey its great that you can. Really recommend it.
