This game is a must have for every DK2 owner.

The VR immersion is extremely good. Game feels super smooth and challenging. Often you have to adapt your tactics to solve a level 100%. But the game is forgiving enough to let you proceed to the next levels without perfection on everything.
Graphics are beautiful, 3d stereoscopic effect is perfect.

The recently added Daily arenas, workshop and level editor add some decent replay value.

Time Rifters provides simple, but compelling game-play in a pretty package. The lack of a tutorial causes a little confusion at the beginning, but it doesn't take long to figure out what is going on. You have four runs to complete the level, with all prior past runs combining with the current one (i.e. you are playing with yourself). Play smart and start with an area effect gun for maximum damage (e.g. missiles), then on the second and third run stick to a section of the screen (left or right half). Finally on the last run use an accurate weapon (e.g. laser) to cleanup. With a good selection of weapons and upgrades, this game is definitely worth the asking price.

Incredibly refreshing gameplay!
Great weapon variety. Each of the weapons has unique mechanics and is useful in its own way.
Nice art style, lots of different environments. The UI looks cool and works well with regular display.
Very high replay value. Different choices of weapons and their upgrades along with the ghost system drastically changes your tactic. With limited resources gathered from destroying the blocks, strategy is very important.

download and play with others' ghosts
sandbox mode with infinite resource
in-game leaderboards
in-game map editor with workshop support
daily challenge with player created maps

Runs 30-40 fps on my crappy laptop with integrated video card on max settings and it looks good.

Incredibly well optimized for the DK2. This game is a glimpse into the future of Virtual Reality using every aspect that is available today at its full extent. Although the game is (currently) single player, you can record replays for your friends to play. There are tons of easter eggs hidden in the levels and they're very well made. If you own a Rift or even if you don't - go get this game. Enjoying every second,

First person shooter with the ability to do multiplayer while solo.

How does that work? You get 4 tries on each section. Nothing changes in those 30 second sections. The blocks all spawn in the same areas, but it's overwhelming for just one person. So, you get the ability to choose between 6 different weapons that you can level up with various options like the ability to add damage over time, split your weapon's beams or rockets, cause collateral damage, etc.

All in all it's a seriously fun game.

Decent graphics
Tight controls
Upgrades for weapons
4 tries for each section gives you ample attempts to upgrade your gear
Plus you get to pick any weapon and have infinite ammo (no reloading)

9/10

A fast paced and colorful puzzle game/first person shooter. It would be better if there were a tutorial, but it's not that difficult to figure out without one.
Found in the discussion where the developer links to a helpful guide for new players: http://steamcommunity.com/app/270010/discussions/0/624075566947376979/
A little bit of handholding the first time you play would still be nice, but it doesn't significantly damage enjoyment.

Excellent little game, that surprisingly doesn´t cause any significant motion sickness (using the Oculus Rift DK2 i normally get sick from first person WASD stype games)

Yeah this game is really addicting. It took a few minutes to figure out what was going on and then BAM, I'm hooked. Coming from someone who rarely plays indie games, I'm super impressed.

Absolutely phenomenal experience. This is unlike any game I have ever played. It is also AMAZING with Oculus Rift DK2... I've tried several different experiences, and this is my favorite game yet. The feeling of playing this game in VR is seriously insane. Runs at a solid smooth 75 FPS and has such unique and amazing gameplay. All of my friends will be trying this. 10/10

I was absolutely blown away by the HUD in-game alone.

Time Rifters is an FPS PC game of an arcade shooter style game that has a nice 5 weapon upgrade system. The enemy is a combination of 3 different types of cubes that are either stationary or moving in a tower defense enemy wave like style.

Each level has 4 rounds, and you record what you did in the 1st round, and then, your play with the recorded version of you in the previews round about four times.

The level design is enjoyable and the workshop system is simple and fun to use.

I recommend this game for any fps fan that enjoys arcade weapon upgrade system. For a short story less game play fun.

What these guys have accomplished for VR is astonishing. With next to no support from Oculus for indie developers, they slaved away to make this work flawlessly on my computer. They include setup options that I didn't even know were possible yet. If you want to see the future of FPS then buy this game.

this game runs extremely well on low end pc, yet looks absolutely stunning. the design and usability of meuns are extremely clever and makes for a completely new and futuristic feel to indie genre. i would have payed twice the asking price if that means anything to anyone doubting the purchase...like i did.
