The following review is an excerpt from Bob Cooney's VR Arcade Game Buyer's Guide:


VAR BOX is a virtual reality esports platform masquerading as a VR arcade game. The company has been running its platform in 10 countries in Asia since 2018 and has over 100K registered players there. VAR BOX won the AMOA Innovator Award at Amusement Expo in March and is a finalist for the Brass Ring Awards at IAAPA this year.

VAR BOX is a compact VR arcade cabinet with four games. Two are casual play: Blockade is a zombie hoard game and Jurassic: New Era is an adventure-based dinosaur shooter. The other two are competitive esports games. Double Tap is a speed and accuracy challenge where players go head-to-head for speed and accuracy. Overkill, a 4-on-4 esports arena shooter, is one of my all-time favorite VR games. Most people I’ve seen play it say the same thing.

VAR BOX is running esports tournaments offering a $100,000 annual prize pool. Player performance is tracked on the VAR BOX mobile app, which also features achievements, missions, and skins. The brains behind VAR BOX is Steve Ngu, who created Darts Live, which became the world’s largest online-connected location-based darts system.

VAR BOX is a new product, with only a few locations scattered around the US. The prototype units shipped to the States used the Oculus CV1 headset, which is not fit for purpose in a western FEC. The company has recently upgraded to the Pico Neo 3 headset which is one of two headsets I have recommended in the past.
