Control function really needs work. The control function really spoils this game; a 'point and click' method would be far better than having to look down - and I mean _right_ down - in order to move around, as it really puts a strain on the neck and is no fun at all and as a result, I only explored the ship. The rest is good news. Graphically, it's real nice, but could do with a bit more animation to give it interest. That said, it had a great feeling of depth and of 'being there' and motion tracking was superb. Potentially excellent.
It's worth checking out It needs the walking to be toggled by the trigger button/tap screen. Looking down to walk has never been a good control mechanic in any VR.... ever. However, this small little game world is pretty neat. Make sure to go through the blue portal and find the mushroom.... and that's all I'll say about that... O_O
Very cool Atmospheric and fun. Runs fine on original Moto X. Excellent framerate on my device. You control movement solely with head motion. Only complaints are 1) the walking speed is too fast at the time of this review - forces you to frequently stop walking in order to take anything in. 2) the steps on the planet surface are pretty touch and go - frequently got hung up. Good Google cardboard demo!
One of the best, and shows a lot of promise Good VR Demos on Android are in short supply (as of this writing March 9, 2014). Generally they have a tragic flaw which can be bad framerate, inaccessible controls, or bad tracking. It seems that Rufugio does it better than most. While the graphics need a lot of work, the actual VR portion of the demo works flawlessly. The framerate is a solid 60fps, and the tracking is spot on. The music is also chosen well to go with the scene, making it an immersing (albeit short) exploration. I am looking forward to an update with a larger and graphically nicer scene to explore. But I think that the developer can accomplish this and set a new bar for VR on Android.
GREAT DEMO! Tried this on S3 with Moga Pro Power and BT keyboard. Great framerate, nice atmosphere. Not much to do after exploring the planet but climb around the mountains and then transport back to the space station and jump over the wall. Enjoy the view as you freefall for eternity!
Great environments, controls need work The environments are well done and interesting, which is what you want in a VR app like this, but I'm having trouble getting into it because it's difficult to control. To turn auto walk on and off you have to strain your neck to look all the way down, which is uncomfortable, disorienting, and takes you out of the moment. I suggest adding an option to use the Cardboard's magnet to toggle walking. Other than that, the app is very well done and atmospheric.
Version 2.0 mit Autowalk Funktion
Beame Dich von der Space Station direkt auf den Planeten Refugio. Erkunde das alte verlassene Dörfchen REFUGIA. Verlassen??? Hmm, man erzählt sich, es würde noch ein alter Einheimischer dort unten wohnen. Vielleicht findest Du Ihn ja.
