11 VR Fitness Games to help you get in Shape (HTC Vive & Oculus)

Mark Metry, Founder of VU Dream

1. Audioshield

HTC Vive
 
Experience your entire music collection in VR. Audioshield puts you at the point of impact for every hit in your music. Beats glide in slowly for mellow parts of songs, then ramp up for intense parts of songs with cross-body, double-shield, and high-altitude hits.
Audioshield uses an advanced version of Audiosurf 2’s music analysis system to sync with any song from your collection – and also with online streaming from Youtube.
Every song has its own online leaderboard. Audioshield also supports local leaderboards to easily compete with friends during look-at-my-awesome-new-VR-system parties.

2. Soundboxing

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
Soundboxing is a VR music video kickboxing game where you create the beats! Feeling competitive? Search for challenges and compete by punching to the beat of your favorite music videos. The longer your streak of correct punches, and the stronger you punch, the more points you’ll earn. Feeling creative? You can record the challenges that others compete in!
While you’re Soundboxing, remember: if you feel the urge to dance, you’re doing it right!
 
Features
  • Designed for VR and the HTC Vive with Motion Tracked Controllers
  • Youtube video search
  • User generated beats and challenges!
  • Share your challenges with a web link, for your friends outside of VR and around the world
  • High score leaderboards keep track of whoever performs best
  • Play back your high scores with a robot marionette boxing match

3. Holopoint

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
Holopoint is pure archery madness. Fight your way through waves of responsive targets, samurai, and highly dangerous ninjas – all while drawing, nocking, and shooting your arrows as quickly as possible.
WARNING: THIS GAME GETS INTENSE. REMEMBER TO BREATH AND TAKE BREAKS.

4. Smashbox Arena

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
Smashbox Arena is a team-based action game with insane physics-driven power-ups.
2 modes of play: Singleplayer Story Mode and Online Multiplayer (AI Characters will join teams if there aren’t enough players)!
Easy to learn, difficult to master — Fast-paced, multiplayer designed from ground up for VR headset and touch controllers!
SINGLE – PLAYER STORY & ONLINE MULTIPLAYER
Beat Story Mode in 3 levels of difficulties to unlock new Heads and Mini-Bios. And match up with friends and competitors from around the world! Work together with players and have fun with friends. Gesture your tactical plans, do a victory dance, and communicate with competitors using voice chat!
INSANE PHYSICS – DRIVEN POWERUPS
Master 6 power-ups like Giant Boulders, Sniperballs and Heat Seeking Missiles. Creatively combine them to create endless unpredictable and funny situations!
DUCK, BLOCK, AND USE COVER
Dodge your opponent’s projectiles and use the environment as cover. Out-maneuvering your opponents in VR never felt so intense!
VR GOD VIEW
Zoom, rotate, and watch the action unfold in real time in VR God-View. Learn your opponents’ tactics and strike back!
EARN BADGES AND UNLOCK NEW HEAD STYLES
Yes, you can unlock a Pear in the game. Enough said!

5. Racket: Nx

HTC Vive
 
RNX is a game of skill. It’s all about landing that clutch shot that saves you from the timer, or nailing that perfect streak that wins you the match. It’s about flow; being in the zone, pushing your skills and sweating it out.
To that extent, Racket: Nx is the first game to use Waves’ Nx 3D audio technology. This tech does high quality realtime positional audio simulation, substantially easing your immersion and allowing you to rely on your ears to tell you what’s where.
Ultimately, our vision is to create the first eSport for VR. That means making the physics tight and precise, encouraging you to always push the bar and improve your game. It means giving our all to the audio-visuals, making the game fun to play and to watch. It means introducing game elements that adds drama and make competitive games nail-biting, skill based and tactical. And above all, it means nurturing our community and treating our players with respect and honesty.

6. ROM: Extraction

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
Welcome to the year 2076, where you now have the power to slow down time–called “Reflex” power. You’ll play as a member of an Orb Extraction Unit, on your way to extract highly volatile energy matter–Orbs–from chambers on the moon. With only a few minutes to defend yourself against the onslaught of alien-built robots protecting the chambers, discover the immense satisfaction of decimating those ‘bots via your “Throw, Slow & Shoot” combat strategy.
Gameplay:
  • Use Orbs in combination with your pistol to “Throw, Slow, and Shoot”
  • Shoot Orbs in proximity of enemies for the most strategic kills
  • Use the environment to your advantage–be on the lookout for destructibles
  • Grab the two-handed EOS-15 rifle when you shoot the floating gun token
  • Use the EOS-15 to “Launch, Slow, Shoot”–a new twist on the core game mechanic that gives you an orb-launching, auto-firing weapon of destruction
  • When “jumpers” are in close proximity, use your pistol or EOS-15 to pop off their heads!
Key Features:
  • Experience having your full arms in VR
  • Engage in an exciting new style of VR gameplay–wield the power to slow down time, and use it as a weapon
  • Three modes of play for each level: Normal – Hard – Survive
  • Leaderboards: See how you stack up against your local and global Extractors
  • Achievements: Earn up to 15 different Steam Achievements
  • Cooperative social screen feature: Play in a room with others in real-time–enable your friends to see a top-down view of your gameplay
  • Killer soundtrack featuring the music of Delta Heavy and Twin Moons (aka Le Castle Vania)

7. Robot City Stadium

HTC Vive
 
Robot City Stadium is a competitive multiplayer disc-combat sport focused on skill, nuance, and mastery.
Competitive: Online multiplayer against friends, enemies, strangers, casual acquaintances, romantic interests, and even people from elementary school who for some reason just sent you a Steam friend request!
Natural: You’ll jump and dodge, block and throw, score points, and annihilate your friends with the natural effortlessness of “being there” No obscure or uncomfortable teleport mechanics here- RCS was built from the ground up to take full advantage of room-scale VR.
Finessed: RCS is a competitive game, so when you throw your weapon it has to go exactly where you expect, just like throwing a frisbee.  That’s different than “goes where you want”- there’s no aim-assist here.  The precision of the amazing Vive controllers means that what you throw is what you get.  It’s up to you to bring the skill.
Nuanced: Twist your wrist as you release a throw to add some spin for curving trick shots.  Collect and expend “spark energy” to give it an in-flight nudge and edge past a barrier or sneak in a hit out of left field.
Varied: A selection of unique arena layouts and features keeps the action fresh and interesting.
Not-really-all-that-intimidating: Experienced players are going to beat inexperienced players: that’s just the nature of a skill-based game Fortunately, we’ve got friendly AI bots who are happy to train you without the attitudes and platitudes 🙂 🙂

8. Dead Hungry

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
Sink your teeth into the first VR offering from well-known PixelJunk series developer Q-Games! Dead Hungry is a fast-paced hilarious panicky action game in which you are a fearless food-truck chef working overtime to end the invading zombie menace by sating their hunger with an order of burger, soda, and fries! Feed the swarms of ravished zombie schoolgirls, office workers, and sumo wrestlers turning them back into well-fed members of society before your very eyes! Stack burgers precariously to the ceiling using farm-fresh ingredients, and pretty much just about anything else you can get your hands on! Try the FREE DEMO today!

9. Superhot VR

Oculus Rift & HTC Vive (Coming Soon)
 
SUPERHOT VR is a title reimagined from the ground up for Oculus Rift and Touch controllers. The fruit of over three years of close cooperation between the critically acclaimed SUPERHOT Team and Oculus, SUPERHOT VR brings the intensely visceral action of SUPERHOT directly into your head and soul.
 
Building upon one of the most recognized VR GOTYs, the Forever Update brings you 20+ more hours of intense, nerve wrenching endgame. The plethora of new challenges, achievements and endless arenas is guaranteed to mercilessly break you and reshape you into a superior version of yourself. You will sweat. You will scream. You will doubt your own sanity. And at the end, maybe, just maybe, you will prevail.

10. Deep End VR

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
The Deep End is a parkour platformer with entire room scale gameplay, experience virtual reality like never before as you climb, jump and run through 10 expansive levels. Only one rule, don’t fall in the pool.
 
Months of work went into planning and programming the most fluent, immersive movement system virtual reality has to offer. Deep End features several natural ways of navigating the world such as walking, running, jogging, crouching, climbing and jumping.
Aside from the standard mechanics, there are a number of movement abilities such as edge grabbing, sliding, crawling, and many more. We wanted to provide the players with something that they could quickly jump into and play, while at the same time providing difficult gameplay that will keep the player coming back for more.
90% of the assets were created from scratch just for this project, sadly this is considered a “feature” these days.
The following features will be available on launch:
  • 5+ hours of gameplay
  • Run in Place Locomotion
  • Basic movement tutorial area
  • Custom soundtrack by Elkoe!
  • Haptic feedback
  • Zero Latency Jumping
  • Optional special challenges
  • Ten levels of increasing difficulty and complexity
  • Plenty things to collect and places to explore
  • Three difficulties
  • Timed runs
  • Several extra modes for those who have mastered the levels, including a hardcore no death playthrough!

11. Trickshot

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift
 
Trickshot is a VR archery platformer that is a throwback to classic platformers of the 90’s and early 00’s.
 
Trickshot aims to fill a niche in the VR playspace by allowing the player to explore larger environments and experience platforming from a new perspective. Trickshot uses ‘artificial locomotion’ in that you do not teleport around the level and instead navigate in a more traditional way by running and jumping in first person.
 
FEATURES:
– 10 Diverse levels with increasing difficulty
– Various special arrow types to help explore and solve puzzles
– Online and local leaderboards to compete for the fastest times and the best scores
– Steam Workshop support so you can upload ghost replays for others to play against
