More brawlers is always a good thing. VR games that get you off your bum and make you move are more than welcome in my house, especially in the run-up to Christmas where snacks literally hang off a tree in the living room. The good news, then, is that there’s another such game out today on Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest, and that is Twisted Pixel’s Path of the Warrior.
Path of the Warrior is, to sum it up quickly, what Streets of Rage would be like in virtual reality. The city’s criminals have all bandied up together, and it’s your job to put them in their place, one slap to the face at a time. You fight through five different environments against an assortment of bad guys. You can punch, grab, throw, and even use weapons to help clean up Rage City.
At the moment, Path of the Warrior is single-player only, which is a bit of a shame. Playing through classic brawlers like Streets of Rage and Final Fight was always great fun with a second player. Perhaps a future update could bring multiplayer? I’m not sure, but I’ve put the quest to the game’s developer, Twisted Pixel, and I’ll update if I hear anything soon.
In the meantime, there’s a fresh trailer up above that gives us a look at the game in action.
Path of the Warrior is out now on the Oculus Store for Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest for $19.99/€19.99.
