There have been many new games and apps for the Samsung Gear VR in the last few months. One of the most impressive new releases is Fusion Wars, an online co-op tank game with cross-platform gameplay.
In Fusion Wars, you control a fast-moving futuristic tank against an army of robot tanks. What makes it different from many other games on the Gear VR is that there’s a cross-platform co-op mode for both the Gear VR and Oculus Rift.
Another differentiating element is that you can ‘slide’ your tank, similar to drifting on a rally car. Sliding allows you to strafe your enemies.
The graphics are some of the best I’ve seen for a mobile VR game. You know how some smartphone games look so good that the graphics can be mistaken for console games (like Infinity Blade and the recently released Super Mario Run)? Fusion Wars is like that, and looks almost as good as BattleZone for the Playstation VR.
