VR Furballs – Demolition Review
Tons of content
Price so low its almost stealing
Fun to play
Very professionally made
It can take a lot of time to unlock somethings
At first glance VR Furballs – Demolition may look like a VR clone of Angry Birds. This would not of been a bad thing. Angry Birds is an addictive game with a loved format. However, VR Furballs – Demolition is much more than that. As you play through the game, you unlock new modes and tools. The premise is simple, evil spiked red furballs have kidnapped cute fluffy furballs. In the core game only you can save the cute fluffy furballs by throwing them at the spiked ones. What Gamily Studios have created is a fun little puzzle game with some cool features and replayability. Here is way more content than you expect for such a small amount of cash.
While you can throw the little furballs, you can also use a sling shot. If you are really skilled, you can even use a tennis racket to really get some oomphf into them. I have already put more than steams reported 1 hour into the game and still have a ton of weapons to unlock. Also, no i do not feel guilty going to town on these little fluffy guys with a tennis racket, for the good of the many etc etc. Stop judging me, remember I am saving the caged one’s so I can use them to save more caged ones, its the circle of life. You can also unlock various gadgets. Some are useful, like a drone that propels a furball upward ready for you to swing your racket and send it hurtling into a spiked red furball (your still judging me, I can tell). Others, less useful, like a camera that takes screenshots for hanging on a balloon.
Annoyingly the default screenshot method does not save images in VR Furballs – Demolition so you are forced to use the camera, this may be a bug though.*This indeed turned out to be a bug and Gamily Studios fixed it VERY fast.
The furballs are colour coded too, an ice blue furball will smash ice when launched at it but will bounce harmlessly off concrete. For concrete you need the grey furball. Some even have special abilities, today I unlocked one that explodes after adorably making little countdown like noises. All of this adds some variety to the puzzles and shows VR Furballs – Demolition is a well thought out game, not a quick rushed experience.
In addition to the core game mode, VR Furballs – Demolition slowly unlocks some cool mini games. The first mini game has you hitting targets, with different leader boards depending on what weapon you use, if any. Next up you have 3 cannons that fire bombs at you, I found this really fun and a good work out. dodging left and right batting them back with the tennis racket is way more fun than it has a right to be. The most recent mode I unlocked has some basket ball hoops with scores on, some moving, some stationary. You simply have to toss (or catapult) the little furballs into the hoops. I confess I am not good at that last one. There are still more modes I have yet to unlock as well. VR Furballs – Demolition has a ton of content.
VR Furballs – Demolition is bright and colourful and very well made. The controls are simplistic and well explained. Both the models used and the little idle sounds/animations give life to the furballs. I love the little bomb furball and the little noise he makes as he counts down to explosion. As you unlock new feature it is explained in full with mini tutorials meaning you never feel stuck. I was quite surprised when I looked and saw this is Gamily Studios first game on steam. They have created a very fun game with a lot of content at a very reasonable price.
There is also a built in level editor, this only unlocks once you beat VR Furballs – Demolition. I did not get a chance to see it as I have yet to be able to finish the game. It would be better if this was unlocked from the start. I will add my thoughts on the editor once I get it unlocked.
