This week’s #3DGuyVRappoftheweek is an entertaining and fun VR game that is also educational – it’s the Wizard Academy VR app! You can also make your very own controller! You’ll want to give this one a try!
Have you ever wanted to be a wizard? Now’s your chance!
Wizard Academy VR is an entertaining virtual reality (VR) game that combines gaming and learning.
This VR game has been around for over 2 years now but its worth the experience. It’s fun, educational and very simple to use.
Use your magic wizard skills
In the game you play the role of a wizard who walks around the village tackling a series of challenges.
In each challenge you use a specific magic skill where you will then receive a transcript with your Wizard Quotient (WQ). You can even compete globally by sharing your WQ with other players using #WizardAcademy
Make your own controller
The game is gets even more interesting when you make your own controller!
You can build your own free RealControl2 controller that allows tracking. You can download the free controller here. I built my own little controller and had loads of fun using it. But if you don’t want to make your own, you can use gaze control.
The game is really easy to navigate from one challenge to another.
Challenges include the fire archery challenge which tests you on your math skills and helps you think fast when calculating – my maths isn’t very good but it’s easy enough for even me to get through!
You also have the ice fortress challenge where you destroy ice castles while putting your physics knowledge to the test. Or the earth maze where you have to navigate your way out of while testing your spatial memory.
There’s also the Telekinesis challenge which I found a little frustrating but maybe you’d do a lot better than I did.
You don’t actually need a special VR viewer to take part in this experience – you can turn the VR mode off – but if you have a Google Cardboard or a 3DGuy VR viewer, you’ll want to use it! If you don’t have one, you can order your own 3DGuy viewer here.
Give it a try! You can download the app here.
Until next week!
