Across is a virtual reality action game. Players are tasked with traversing a variety of different rooms, dodging missiles and obstacles, across 25 levels of increasing difficulty.
Boy and bear
Armed with the traditional teddy bear and light-sword combination, Across is a basic virtual reality action game based on puzzle solving. Each level is a single contained room with two points which players must travel between. Laser blasts form the main obstacle, hampering movement and requiring either dodging or blocking. One hand controls a sword for defence purposes while the other holds a teddy bear. This bear must be kept safe as the game ends if they are damaged. Across is a decent enough, if fairly basic, action game. An extremely short playtime of around an hour is the main complaint, made even worse for the lack of reasons to play a second time or multiplayer options.
Middle of the road
Across is a simple and unremarkable game. A nice rise in difficulty keeps some kind of tension and focus across the short series of levels, but little else can really be said for this indie title.
