InCell VR is an action/racing game mixed with strategy and bio science, which is taken place in a micro world of the carefully recreated human cell. You are brought into the virtual world/cell and are tasked with outrunning viruses, exploring the cell and saving the cell from destruction. InCell is free on the Apple App Store, and was created by: NIVAL Inc. Currently, it is offered only in English, and it is compatible with iOS 8.0 and above.
- Price: The game InCell is free-to-play. Anyone can obtain the App with their Apple product. Such as: iPhone, iPad and iPod/iTouch. The game is 199 MB.
- Comfortability: Virtual Reality games are sometimes hard to use because of the constant motion of what is happening in the game. It can be hard to keep track of everything in the game, but InCell does a great job of keeping the motion sickness away. Also, if the game becomes too much, or you don’t have your VR headset with you, you can play it normally by turning the VR mode off.
- Graphics and Sound: Out of all the VR games I have tried on iOS, InCell’s graphics are spectacular for a mobile game. The sound also is fantastic. It makes the VR experience that much better.
- Concept: The games concept and story is something out of the ordinary. You are emerged into a cell, and you have to protect the cell from viruses, and attacks. The strategy/racing style is different, but works great.
- Difficulty: InCell is a fun, but challenging game. It is not a game you can easily skip through without coming up against any challenges.
- Battery Life: As do most mobile games, InCell takes up a hefty chunk of battery life from your phone. Playing for about 20 – 30 mins can result up to 10 – 15% of your battery life taken.
- Storage: The game also takes up 200 Mb of storage to download, so downloading without WiFi will hurt. Also, if your phone doesn’t have a lot of free storage then 200 MB could hurt you.
My experience with InCell was great. I enjoyed the hybrid gameplay of exploring/tasks it prompted you with. I have played other VR games on iOS, but this one takes the cake. The sound and graphics were awesome for a mobile game, and it was entertaining. There were some times when I got frustrated at the game for failing to complete certain things, but games should challenge you. I think that is what makes game fun to play. The motion of the game wasn’t too much to handle. Overall, the game was well put together unlike a lot of VR games on the AppStore. NIVAL Inc. definitely took there time on this game.
After playing and reviewing the game, I give InCell a 4.5 out of 5. I enjoyed the game a ton, but the drain of battery and storage wasn’t to my liking. In the future I believe most VR games for mobile phones will have a reduced storage cost, and hopefully battery cost, but for VR still being new, NIVAL Inc. did an excellent job.
On the AppStore, 50+ users rated it 4.5 stars our of 5 on all versions, but after the newest patch, 1.4, it has received eleven 5 star reviews.
