This Week’s New Gear VR and Oculus Rift Content (7/30/16)
Heroes of the Seven Seas ($4.99 – Gear VR)
Enter the world of a 16th-century pirate’s journal. As a pirate in search of the legendary Seven Seas Artifacts, you will sail to the mysterious sea with friends, where your adventure begins! Fight the navy, other pirates, and monsters from the sea. Enhance your capabilities by upgrading your ship, including the hull, sail, and broadside guns. Trade with merchants on different islands to explore and hunt for hidden treasures. This is a real adventure – an adventure in the vast and unknown seas of VR.
Cabbage Harvest ($0.99 – Gear VR)
Train your brain with this puzzle-style farming simulator. Your task is to harvest as many cabbages as possible while avoiding your enemy Bernie the worm.
