Gorilla Tag is a trending VR game available on Oculus Quest devices. The game involves the classic tag game where players must tag a chosen user. The game is free, and users can currently download it to their Oculus Quest devices. Let’s see what all the hype is about and take a closer look at Gorilla Tag.
Users need to download App Lab to start playing Gorilla Tag to start. A simple search for the game on your Oculus Quest browser will prompt you to install App Lab and Gorilla Tag.
When you first spawn, follow the arrows to go through the cave, which will take you to the central hub, where you’ll see other players.
Climb up the tree to find the Central Control Room where you can switch between game modes, cycle through different rooms, and adjust your settings.
When we tested the game, there were more than 44,000 people in Gorilla Tag, which shows the huge popularity of the game. You can use the keyboard to choose various options and adjust your settings.
Three game modes are also available to users: Casual, Infection, and Hunt.
Casual mode is more of a social game mode where players can train, meet friends, and socialize. Infection mode features colorful monkeys that are “infected”, trying to infect others. Hunt mode is where all players have to hunt a monkey they can find by looking at their wristwatch.
The game modes are simple to understand, and the hardest part of Gorilla Tag is mastering the move. We recommend that you allow yourself enough room for your arms to move as you need to make large arm movements to move quickly and efficiently.
Most players have been playing Gorilla Tag for a while and have mastered the move, so there’s definitely a skill curve that takes time to learn.
The best part of Gorilla Tag is that it’s a very active game that makes you sweat and tire your arms after just a few minutes. Gorilla Tag is a great way to burn calories while having fun in VR.
It should be noted that mastering movement in Gorilla Tag is by far the hardest part. One piece of advice I would like to give to new players is to focus on timing your moves.
Since the game does not involve any buttons, you will notice that there is a short period where your hand will stick to a surface before automatically disengaging. Once you get into the “flow” of movement, it becomes much easier to move around the map and tag other players.
Gorilla Tag is 100% free, and if you’re looking for a fun and engaging experience while working out, we highly recommend checking it out!
