Discovery Lite - Quest Edition is a free VR game that mimics the game we all know and love, Minecraft. Except, this time, you get to experience it in complete immersion with your Oculus Quest headset. Be wary that this is only the lite version of the game, so there can be some minor bugs.
Discovery Lite - Quest Edition is a game where you can roam, create masterpieces and construct impenetrable fortresses. You can also explore the underground and delve further into all it has to offer. There’s much to be discovered in this expansive open world. The developer Noowanda has designed this impressive game.
Discovery Lite offers a key distinguishing feature - the third-person view, which lets you view your character as an objective third person. You’ll also come across several animals, including rabbits, fox and sheep. It also boasts smooth day-and-night cycles.
The game has over 150 materials to craft with electric circuits, and a built-in world gallery so that you can view the creations of others and share your very own. Most notable, however, is the online multiplayer. Here you can build to your heart’s content with some of your favourite (or not so favourite) friends.
Where it lacks
Unfortunately, Discovery Lite in its present state lacks many features that we’ve come to appreciate in the classic Minecraft game, including combat and crafting. It has a limited number of materials and is also a pity that the viewing distance is quite limited in comparison.
You can anticipate a few other additions as time goes by, including a survival and adventure mode. Although not a precise clone of the original game, you should also expect that the developer will include some of the lacking features.
Although lacking in some areas, the game is quite stunning the way it is. This Android VR experience is incredibly immersive. If all you’ve ever really cared about in Minecraft is building, then this should be fine for you. Build, and do it in VR. Being part of this exciting development journey is well worth it.
