Boom Boom Online is a free VR game that’s only available for Oculus devices. The title takes heavy inspiration from the Sword Art Online anime, requiring you to fight enemies as you progress through the levels of the world. The title is simple to play and an ideal download for fans of the SAO series.
If you enjoy VR games, the alternative Ancient Dungeon VR is a great way to explore more caverns as you combat monsters. Alternatively, if you want monster combat but lack a Virtual Reality headset, Monster Park (SEA) is a great title to try out. The title is unfortunately limited due to its status as a fan-made game.
Based on the anime
Boom Boom Online is based on the anime Sword Art Online, a series that saw players trapped within an online MMO. As an SAO game, the title begins in the same world as the anime’s main characters. You’ll fight wild boards and see a menu that replicates the one seen within the show.
Fortunately, unlike in the anime, you won’t die in real life if you fail to defeat your enemy. To improve your combat, you can go shopping for new gear that boosts your attack abilities or defensive power.
Boom Boom Online requires an Oculus VR headset and cannot function on any alternative brand. This limitation prevents anyone with an HTC Vive from discovering the title. If you’re playing the game on an Oculus Quest, the title needs to load through the Sidequest app first.
The world of Boom Boom Online is open and free for you to explore and discover as you combat enemies. As the game is fan-made most of the floors aren’t available, and you’ll spend most of your time in the Town of Beginnings. The game does offer a lot to do on the lower floors, such as shop and battle various enemies.
Fan-made with limitations
Boom Boom Online is a fan-made game that holds itself to its inspiration, Sword Art Online. However, the title isn’t truly online and fails to provide anything more than a simulation of the anime’s world. The game is also limited to the Oculus devices and cannot run on an HTC Vive or other VR headset.
