Arcade Mode: Catch tasty insects in Arcade Mode and beat the high score. But watch out for those nasty wasps – they'll leave a bad taste. This makes the dragonflies (slow motion) and ladybugs (night vision) taste all the better. Survival Mode: Or outrun the stork in Survival Mode. Become a true survivalist when it comes to dodging the huge stork. Eat or be eaten! Can you eat enough insects before the stork catches you? If you can, the next one will make things even tougher for you. Party Mode: And if you fancy a hopping competition with your friends, Party Mode is exactly what you're looking for. Every 12 hours, you'll have an empty high score just waiting to be filled.

If you've ever wanted to know what it's like to be a frog, then VRog is here to make all of your dreams come true. The aim of the game is to consume insects, while hopping from one lilly pad to another to find more; you can even jump on the back of a friendly turtle and go for a ride. Not all things are good in frog-land, though, as a menacing stork is always on the hunt for a tasty frog-leg dinner.
VRog uses only head movements to control the game, therefore no controllers are needed; making it a perfect title if you're waiting for a repair or a replacement controller. It also makes the gameplay a lot easier to learn, so it's perfect for kids and adults alike, along with newcomers to virtual reality. You simply need to only look at an insect for a couple of seconds in order for your tongue to lash out and capture it, likewise looking at the lilly pads to jump to them, or even at the game modes to start them. As for the bugs, there are flies, mosquitos, poisonous bees that distort your vision, ladybugs that give you a night vision view for a little while, and dragonflies that slow time down for a bit. Eating the same insects in a row gives you a chain multiplier to increase your score quicker. It's all very basic, easy, and fun.
There are three game modes in total, with one of them being a party mode where you can compete against the highscores of your friends. In Arcade Mode, you'll need to catch and eat as many bugs as possible within the allotted time frame. As for Survival, it's made up of multiple levels where you need to meet a certain score, all while avoiding the wandering stork who will eat you in one bite. I managed to make it to level six of Survival mode, so I'm not sure how many levels there are in total, but the stork gets faster with each level, and the points that you need climb ever higher.
I personally managed to get through all that VRog has to offer in about 45 minutes, which includes getting 100% of the achievements. Even though the graphics are bright and colorful, a downside to the game is that there is only one environment that you'll be visiting over and over again. With that said, for the price point of $5.49 CAD, it's not a bad little game. On top of being well crafted, it's extremely enjoyable for adults, and very kid friendly as well. A great first attempt from ByteRockers' Games.
Rating: 3.5/5.0 - Average, can take it or leave it.

Review from Steam

If you can get this on sale for like .99 cents then it's totally worth it. I wish the targeting system was something other than looking (it's not actually fun to have to look around and strain your neck). But it's a nice and easy relaxing VR game otherwise. Just consider it like a mobile game, just in VR. It has leaderboards and trying to survive for as long as possible can actually be challenging. Keep in mind if you have limited space in real life for roomscale, this is a good time-waster that you can do seated (although it's harder to look 360 without straining your neck). Visuals are nice considering the type of game.
I do not recommend this game at full price however. If you have kids, they will probably enjoy this more than others.

6.5 out of 10
Something for for your younger kids or grand parents will enjoy. As a middle aged hardcore gamer brought up on games from the age of 10 this is rather boring for the likes of me. But this game isn't made for me so can't really bash and the best fly eating game I've played since Bog Frog on the Intellivision. Lovely visuals.

First and foremost, this game initially was not what I had expected. I thought there was a problem with my controllers for a moment but found out this is escentially a HMD only tracked game.
With that said, the game plays like a VR mobile game. It reminded me of some games I had on the Gear VR before my Note 7 was recalled. :) So with that expectation and for what it is, it is a quick fun pickup and play arcade style game.
There are different game modes to choose from but I've mostly played in Arcade Mode only which is escentailly a minute and a half window to try and eat as many insects as possible within that amount of time while racking up combos to increase your scoring opportunity.
The framerate has been consistent and feels like a polished mini-game. I did not have any issues with motion sickness though I think I understand what one reviewer was referring to when they said they got dizzy. There is a effect that happens that warps the screen for a few seconds if you eat an insect you're not supposed to eat. It didn't bother me at all but I can understand how that may be an issue for some; especially if you're new to VR and haven't develped your "VR Legs" yet. :)
All in all, I like the local and online scoreboards and length to add variety to my VR game collection. I've been busy lately and haven't played VR games in two weeks so it was nice to add a title that is a quick pick up and play to accomidate busy perioids with lack of gaming time. :)
I would say for the $2.99 sale price right now, it is worth chekcing out if you like that kind of arcade style gameplay. Since it feels/plays like a mobile game, the $2.99 should probably be the standard price but I also understand VR is not at it's prime and develpoers need to make a return on their investment.
I made a raw gameplay video followed by a review with my intial thoughts right after playing it for the first time on the youtube link above if you're interested in how it looks/plays.

A nice game to play. Runs fine on my DK2 after I applied a fix that stops the HMD display turning grey due to SteamVRs boundaries not getting on with DK2. Sense of scale is really nice and it's pretty daunting seeing that Stork looming over you in survival mode!. The art direction is really nice with each bug easily identifiable on a whim.
Would recommend to anyone with a VR headset.

Review from Steam

Nice game for the kids. but the need to loose the dizziness emulation after eating a special bug it cause nausea.
after five minutes playing i had enough and my stomach turnt opside down.
graphics are great and i like the hopping arround.
so for now thumbs down only because the dizziness emulation (i don't like to cleanup after the kids played this game)
SO THAT WAS THE OLD REVIEW NOW THE NEW.
And Yes the developers respond quickly and made a adjustment now you can choose from the launch menu stable back ground, I hope this will later on be a setting in the game but for now perfect. I can give only one thumbs up but both thumbs in the air. no more nausea ( I love clean floors :-) )
Great game to play with the kids and with friends, a special with friends that are not gamers it's instructions are simple "look and eat" and for this price it's a need to have.
we gone a have a lot of fun next weekend with or friends.
