Quote from a lucky early reviewer:
"There are good VR games, and there are others... Good ones are designed to work on VR from the start, Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe VR seems to be one of the firsts. Agharta Studio succeded at sublimating its game sceneries and ambiance, this little title may not look much but promises to be one of the first VR successes!"

"There are good VR games, and there are others... Good ones are designed to work on VR from the start, Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe VR seems to be one of the firsts.

"The results are impressive. We can scan the whole scenes while moving the head, and we keep stopping at details we never noticed before, like those UI windows. We almost feel like we can touch them! The same goes for characters, you can't prevent to look at them at every possible angle."

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe


"Once upon a time, when Apple and Commodore were personal computer rivals, Brøderbund Software released a little game called Shufflepuck Café. If you played that game back in the day, prepare for an overload of nostalgic air hockey goodness. If this is your first trip to the Shufflepuck Cantina, well, nostalgia won’t do anything for you, but the air hockey goodness sure will!"
- VGBlogger.com

"Hop over to Steam and pick up your copy as soon as it unlocks. The game is loads of fun to play and works great whether you have 5 minutes or a whole afternoon!"
- geekbeat.tv

"It's an excellent surprise with a big life span. The game looks really nice too."

"To be clear, I loved Shufflepuck Cafe when it came bundled with my Amiga 500 in the late 80′s, and this hits all my nostalgia buttons without the “not as good as I remember” feelings."

"Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe is highly recommended. This is a nice year-end surprise that a simple game of Air Hockey is something challenging with many special moves and content that never get the player bored."
86% - game4me.be

"Shufflepuck Cantina took the original and brought it up to 2013 standards. I’m sure Shufflepuck Cafe fans would have been more than happy with a straight remake but Agharta did a fantastic job of making a modern Shufflepuck game while retaining the spirit of the original."
80% - etgeekera.com

"All together Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe lives up to the legacy of its predecessor in every way. It’s an easy to play game within a mostly well rounded gameworld and will have you playing for hours on end."
80% - realgamernewz.com

"Your opponents are varied and it takes time to learn how to defeat them while a steady stream of unlocks will keep you coming back for more. Whether you want to play for a few minutes or a few hours, Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe is a good choice."

About This Game

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe VR is also very enjoyable without a VR headset!
Note: In case the game fails to launch, switch to the winopengl version in BETAS tab.

After "accidentally" jumping your spaceship through a wormhole, you’ve crash landed onto this forsaken desert planet a billion kilometers from home. The only thing between you and the horizon is the seemingly endless dunes of sand, save for one strange, huge building. Inside, it appears to be an interstellar Casino where everyone plays air hockey for a living.

You’ll have to fight hard to grind down all your opponents until they are utterly defeated to earn the critical parts needed to repair your ship. Once you’ve obtained all the spaceship pieces you’ll have to defeat the owner of this insane Casino so you can go home.

Features

  • Extremely responsive game controls.
  • 5 Floors populated with 13 vicious opponents.
  • Quests and missions system to unlock loads of game content.
  • Track your progress and gain experience through an advanced levelling system.
  • Full and extensive Oculus DK1 and DK2 plug and play support.

I just recently got my Oculus Rift DK2 and after play a ton of "tech demos", I've got to say this is one of the most polished and just plain fun to play games in VR!

This game is a top-notch Oculus must-have!! One of the cleanest VR experiences to date, for sure. I have only played in an Oculus Rift DK2, so can only speak to that - but if you have a Rift, do yourself a favor and get this game! You will smile.

This is a very well designed and executed air hockey game, set in a sci-fi (okay, direct rip-off of Star Wars) universe. Lots of different special moves etc. and opponents to duel.

Saying that, although I recommend the game, it is VERY obvious that it is a port from the iPad game - the micro-transactions ("pay £1.25 for 10,000 creds!") have been obviously removed *but* the requirement to grind up the money and tokens has been left in - it can be a little weird to have a game announce "come back in 30 minutes for another token!"

Absolutely amazing job guys - everything I hoped it would look like with the Rift support. Very immersive environments and an excellent job on the 3D in the panels. Money well spent.

A must-have DK2 game, lots of fun, easy to pick up for most anyone (I'd recommend setting your mouse sensitivity low to get closer to a 1:1 feel). it does get repetitive expecially after 10 hours or so but you'll still feel like playing every other day trying to unlock that last level

This game is amazing in the DK2! Wow. Incredible and fun experience. I highly recommend this to anyone with a Rift. I can't believe how quality this game is and it runs at a solid 75FPS.

Fast paced VR action, yet is still comfortable as you are stationary & the game has a decent frame rate / well designed UI. Mouse control works well for this game.

This game makes so much fun on the Oculus Rift DK2. Very smooth 75 fps even with downsampling on a GTX 760.
Very immersive gameplay. The mouse really feels like its the Mallet. This title shows that theres no need for AAA multimillion dollar games to have fun. Less is more in this case.
Its definitely one of my top 3 Oculus Rift Games.

One of the few games and demos that runs on DK2 out of the box. Also cool game and nice graphics. And it has Linux support!

I so wished this game had more to it. More exploration, more characters and more minigames.

Probably my biggest indie surprise of 2014. Or whenever this game is taking place.

Shufflepuck cantina introduces you an astronaut whose ship just crashed and he needs to find a way home , lucky for him he landed near a cantina where they take shufflepuck (air hockey) very seriously so he can make money and win spaceship pieces out of the vip players.
The gameplay is quite simple you need to score X amount of points on the opponent and depending on your results you will get bronze,silver or gold medals to unlock missions, said missions are mostly score X amount of points against someone , during the air hockey matches you can collect more coins on the board, grab buffs and debuffs like double point, bigger mallet, shielded and etc and every opponent has a special shot which consists on crazy spins and bounces in order to distract you, the first times it will be hard to counter them but eventually you will know how to counter them all.
The game gets kind of repetetive since you need to complete all 10 missions of each character in order to win their spaceship part so you end up playing thousands of shufflepuck matches against the same people over and over again.
Fun game in small doses and tons of achievements to grab , a lot of them are not easy to get though if you're into this kind of game the full price is not a lot considering how many hours you must sink into this game in order to beat it.
