Wanderer is a VR game, and those range from barely interactive cutscenes to some of the most memorable experiences in the history of video games. And with its ambiguous trailers, it might be hard to determine whether the game is good or not.
So, how does it compare with other VR games?
Wanderer Game Review
Wanderer puts you in the shoes of Asher Neumann, a man living in a post-apocalyptic version of the future who, while rummaging through his grandfather’s lost apartment, stumbles upon a device that allows him to travel through time and space.
Though the concept itself is nothing new, the game shines when it comes to using it to build intricate puzzles for you to solve.
Time, Place, and Puzzles
All around the web you’ll find the game marketed as an escape room-like experience. And there’s a good reason for that – each time period you travel to feels like a small escape room with its own theme.
Only imagine being able to drag items from one escape room to another. That is where most of the fun of the game lies. Figuring out how to solve complex puzzles is always immensely satisfying.
Wanderers and Wonders
Wanderer is one of the best-looking VR games. The developers put a lot of care into portraying the many locations you’re going to visit accurately, while still having some fun with designing the more futuristic elements of the game, such as your robot-wristwatch companion, Sam.
The game’s adventurous music score and some really great voice acting perfectly merge with the visuals, creating a very immersive experience.
What About the Action?
Every so often, you’ll encounter arcade-style action sequences that slightly vary the gameplay, but these are few and far between.
For better or worse, Wanderer doesn’t have offer much in terms of adrenaline-pumping action. Although this is not a flaw by any means, it’s something you should keep in mind before picking up the game.
If slow-paced puzzle-solving doesn’t sound like your type of game, the Wanderer is not a game for you.

Duelyst 2 Review
A complete look at Duelyst 2! Is it worth it?
Duelyst II is a digital collectible card game and turn-based strategy game that Counterplay Games initially published. The game revolves around fighting on a 5×9 battlefield and beating the opposing generals. Generals will start the game with a maximum of 25 health points and will begin with two attack power. Per turn, generals can use cards to summon minions, use spells, and equip artifacts.
These cards cost mana core, and the mana bar will be refreshed at the beginning of each turn. Also, players can gain up to a maximum of 9 cores by taking control of one of the three mana tiles on the board. There are over 300 cards in the game, and each of them has unique effects.
Duelyst II reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics, which I considered a good strategic game that was released in 1997. The game’s graphics are pretty average, but the combat system makes Duelyst II enjoyable. It involves taking board control in the early game to unleash your card combos in the mid to late game.
There are some RNGs involved, but skill and good cards matter here. However, anyone who supports their Kickstarter project or spends money has a massive advantage in card optimization Overall, this game is good for players interested in a competitive strategic-based game with complex card systems. Casual players might not like this, but hardcore fans would definitely play it.
Our Verdict & Score
The Duelyst 2 is a fan-made version of the original game. The devs got the whole game for free and tweaked some things to make the game exciting. The card system in the game makes it complex enough for beginners and advanced players alike. The whole gameplay and combat are fun and could be frustrating if you’re not into a strategic game. Overall, this game has a lot of potentials and could be one of the best strategic-based games ever made.
