VR Playground is an application for virtual reality that will get you used to movement in VR. Not only that, VR Playground adds an exciting factor: you can run around in the VR world, jumping off ramps and making up tricks!
This application is great for all ages and experience levels in VR. There is no set objective, just run around and have some fun in the brightly-colored VR Playground.
How to play:
• Turn your head back and forth to look right and left.
• Nod your head up and down to look up and down, respectively.
• In the middle of your view, look for a small white dot.
○ This dot is called the reticle, used for aiming yourself.
○ Use the reticle to direct your view, line up for a jump, or focus on an object.
• Pull the trigger (or push the button) on your viewer to walk forward. The movement effect may be nauseating at first.
• You may want to move in small steps at first. Pull the trigger, then release. Try to run up some ramps!
• Many ramps to run on
• Two elevators
○ Wait for the elevator to come down, as it gets to eye level pull the trigger to move forward and you will be on it.
• The fun maze of ramps will bring you to the ultimate location in the game: a clear ramp 90 feet in the air!
• Completely free, no ads either!
