20. NaN Industry VR

N·a·N Industry VR — Trailer

Many VR enthusiasts say that the “NaN Industry is an Absolute Gem Of A Puzzle Game On SideQuest,” and I undoubtedly agree with them.

The goal is to get various collections of blue cubes from the starting point to the target, and you do that by building a factory assembly line to transport the blue cubes to where they need to go.

You’ll be using conveyor belts with various kinds of tools, and even carving out unique shapes to transport those blue cubes.

There are an absolute ton of levels to choose from and it’s a little confusing at first, but you will get the hang of it.

Cubism is another simple yet challenging VR puzzle game with a minimal aesthetic, where you have to assemble increasingly complex shapes out of smaller puzzle pieces.

Your goal is to arrange all the 3D shapes to fill up every block of a play area. Trust me, it starts off easy but the difficulty quickly gets up.

It’s a delightful puzzle game, that supports hand tracking that you and your kids both will love to play.

Just like Cubism: Here are ALL the Meta Quest HAND TRACKING Compatible Games & Apps


18. Ninja Legends VR

Ninja Legends Gameplay Trailer

Ninja Legends is one of my favourite Quest games, and there’s a free demo you can download and try for yourself.

Your goal is to survive as long as you can in a single level of 360 surroundings.

The ninja combat is superb casual arcade action, and it’s so much fun to deflect the ninja stars and slice through these ninjas like butter.

It’s a little strange that the demo is only available on SideQuest when the full Ninja Legends game is on the official Quest store, but that’s the way it is.

Ninja Legends

17. Physics Playground

VR Physics Playground | Build #12 Preview | April 2020

Now, let’s talk about the game that I think highly resembles Boneworks which is Physics Playground!

Physics Playground is a game made in Unity that is entirely driven by Rigidbody Physics. The gameplay is similar to Boneworks VR, i.e., the whole game is based on physics concepts only.

You have a variety of weapons to choose from like handguns, assault rifles, shotguns, katanas, hammers and much more.

Just by pressing the “spawn enemy” button, you enter the arena, and the enemies will come after you. It’s an endless game, and you will feel entertained even after 2-3 hours of gameplay

15. Lambda1VR

Half-Life VR for Oculus Quest //Lambda1VR Trailer

Half-Life: Alyx on PC was amazing, and it’s even more impressive in VR, but it does come with a price of $59 on Steam.

However, with the help of SideQuest, you can play Half-Life on the Meta Quest, making it a dream come true.

The installation is a bit more involved, and it does require you to own Half-Life on PC as this is just a mod of the original game. But I have to say, it’s totally worth it. (Tutorial)

Being transported into the world of Half-Life is insane. You truly feel the scale of everything, and headcrabs jumping at you become a new type of terror.

Trust me, if you enjoyed Half-Life in 2D or if you’ve never gotten around to trying it, then give this a shot; it’s incredible.”


14. The Contractors

Contractors Quest Launch Trailer

Contractors is an action-shooter VR game by Caveman Studios and what sets this game apart is the polish of the game. 

Visually, the graphics are stunning. The amount of detail this game has is incredible…From reflections to shadows to high-quality textures.

And mechanically it just feels so great to fire the guns and the variety of loadout options is really satisfying.

On a pure gameplay level, it’s so much faster than the other well-known VR shooters out there.

10. Tea for God VR

Tea For God trailer

Tea For God is a unique VR game that offers an infinite world within a small play area by using “non-euclidean geometry”.

As you move around, the game generates new rooms and corridors, making it feel like you’re exploring an ever-changing maze.

You’ll need to physically dodge and weave to avoid enemy fire. The gameplay is simple yet addictive.

Since the game generates a new world every time you play, no two playthroughs are ever the same. This makes it a great game to pick up and play whenever you have a few spare minutes.

9. Quake VR

Quake VR - Release Trailer (v0.0.6) [Reloading, Sandbox, Networking Improvements]

Ready for some nostalgia? (if you’re born in the ’90s)

Do you remember a game called Quake? I think you might because Quake was one of the original true PC-defining games.

Playing Quake in VR is a totally different experience. The best part is that on the Quest, you have a full six degrees of motion which is crazy!

Enemies will tower over you, and you can aim your gun with the controllers, and shoot them… It’s just as fun as the original but much better.


8. Project Terminus

Project TERMINUS VR Cinematic Trailer

If you enjoy horror survival games, then Project Terminus is a tremendous experience to sideload on your Meta Quest.

Set in Paris during an invasion from an unknown source, and your goal is to survive.

It isn’t about the jump scares but more about the creepy atmosphere and the helplessness of being chased by a sinister and unknown shadow. 

Project Terminus shows a massive amount of polish and potential for the future as they continue to work on the game & It is absolutely free on Sidequest

1. Crisis VRigade

Crisis VRigade trailer

If you are looking for a duck and cover shooting VR game like Time Crisis (the excellent arcade game) well, we have Crisis VRigade. 

The rude burglars are causing trouble, and your duty to slaughter them. It’s all about choosing when to duck and when to rise so you can take out the villains.

The game mechanics are fantastic, natural, and basic. You can play solo or team with your buddies in coop multiplayer mode.

However, you will also be defeated a lot, and I believe the challenges are what bring me back to play over and over.

Crisis VRigade
