Eclipse moves the bar up for everyone else on Daydream. It feels great exploring this world. The only criticism I have is that it drags a bit in the middle. There's a stage or two where no new mechanics, narrative elements, or environments are introduced and it starts to feel a bit monotonous. However, it redeems itself in the next stage with a good reveal, more challenging puzzles, and beautiful scenery.
Can't imagine how did this game running on a mobile VR platform. The game world is so BIG, graphics is decent and the phone can handle all this without problems. Game control sometimes did give me little problems since some mechanism will automatically triggered by the position you stand on or where you looking at while you want to perform another action. Not a big deal but did affects my game play a little in my experience. For other parts like immersion and content this game did great jobs on those things. For an adventure game lover I really thinkit is the must have app for the VR platform.
I could go on and on... And I have elsewhere online. Suffice it to say, this is not only the best game for Daydream by miles, but the best game I've ever played on a mobile device! I had a chance to score a free copy, but I wasn't willing to wait, and this is the best $8.99 I've spent in a long time. To all other Daydream devs out there: this is the gold standard for story, audio/visual, and controller use.
I've been looking for something to make me use my Daydream headset more, and this game was it! It's incredible, really immersive and the controls, with the usage of the controller, is implemented really nice. Not even sure how many hours I buried in this but it was a few! Great game.
This game is one of the best if not the best of daydream VR. Like any other games I suggest you to put a 20-30minutes timer because your cellphone will overheat. And in this game you forget about time. It's so immersive. The game is about discovering what happened to a disappeared civilisation (I think they disappeared... Not reached the end yet). There are a lot of puzzle but they are easy to complete. You won't lose more than 2minutes to figure them out. The world is beautiful and immersive. Graphics are not meant to try being realistic. Which is what daydream games should be going for. The graphic style fits perfectly and makes it even more immersive since it's not trying to replicate the real world with horrible textures. Can't wait to see what they will come up with next.
Easily the best game on Daydream VR. A masterpiece and instant classic. Everybody with a Daydream-ready phone must get this game. The perfect gameplay, unbelievable presentation and highest immersion I have ever felt in a VR game make this one a must play!!!
