Windlands Demo Now Available on Oculus Share
If you ever wanted to be a superhero, this is your chance to feel like one. Make enormous jumps, swing in the air with the help of a grappling hook, and walk on narrow ridges and this is not all. Windlands offers a great range of movement, ability to explore and a chance to perfect your fighting skills to face epic battles.
Windlands follows the adventures of the last droid desperately trying to defeat war machines in order to end the war. The player is the last automaton whose goal is to destroy the source of power of all the war robots. The game begins at the hub from where you can choose your destination. Every level has a new theme so a different environment awaits you every time you enter a new level. Some of the themes are a desert, an underground area, a flying island and a ruined town. In each level, you will explore the location and try to find the level boss. Once you have found the boss, you will have to win against it so that you can collect an item for the final fight. After you have conquered all the levels and collected the items, it will be time to face the ultimate battle. The action of play in Windlands includes grappling hooks which are essentially your arms and are 30 meters long, super jumps that will allow you to gather speed and take huge jumps and wall jump which you can use to reach impossible heights jumping from wall to wall.
