The Height

a futuristic exploration game

80

I really like this game, but… …Please change the controls so that the Cardboard trigger (tapping the screen) toggles walking. Or at least make it an option, because everything that is great about this game gets annoying when I have to look down just to toggle movement. Please fix/add this if you can. This is a really well done game otherwise, I love the difficulty, I love the smooth vr head movement, and the jumping by shaking head upwards surprisingly feels natural. Could possibly use some more background music in the game.

In order for me to rotate left or right, I have to look down, twist my head left or right, then look back up. I greatly appreciate that any kind of head tracking without gyro is possible, but would there be a way to implement the tech that the developer Lakento uses? Those apps use natural head tracking without gyro. I yearn to see more of such apps!

WORKING 100% on a GALAXY S5 .. amazing , flawless .. using an Ipega gamepad .. can’t wait for texturing to get faster so we can have visually overwhelming levels included

I thought this game was great!! I hate these kind of games but this one was just badass must get for vr!!!

Dont like how you have to tilt your head to look left and right.


Márkó Schadi June 11, 2016
Every time when I quit the game my progress lost.

Can’t move unless you have one. Researched it so I don’t have one if there is a way to move without one idk what that is.

It looks good even on my low rez galaxy express. And its actualy a game. most other VR demos on the play store have little or no gamification.This one is lots of fun.I just cant seem to get to the exit on the blue level.Keep getting stuck/falling off the “updraft” column.


Charles Bigcat September 13, 2014
I like the look and controls of this game. No controller required and it works great on multiple android vr headsets. Great work!


Geoff Rogers September 25, 2014
One of the few vr games that presents you with a fairly lengthy experience, I definitely recommend it. It’s fun, challenging, and gives you a real sensation of height as you climb through the levels.


Matthias Volmer October 2, 2014
Impressive 3d environment that just sucks you right in. Having some trouble with the controls, but great VR demo otherwise. Using google cardboard.


Nicolas Otala December 13, 2014
I like how this is longer than most vr’s but I think it could really use an auto save feature so you don’t have to start at the beginning every time.


Robert Gutjahr September 14, 2014
You need the “dive” vr headset or similar to make it work.


kuhny1 February 23, 2015
A lot phones have a orientation sensor for the compass and it outputs the same data as gyro would so could you make it so we could use that sensor if we don’thave a gyro. I gave 4 stars because of the environment and because the accelerometer that it at least let’s my look up and down.


SD Mattos November 30, 2014
This really worked great on my g3. I ran it through cardboard and it ran smoothly. Great job.


Half-Heart Hero November 22, 2014
It is a good game. But add a camera and analog stick. And make it one sceen


Asta Saidak October 11, 2014
Never seen anything like it,superb


Kirby Verano September 14, 2014
I think it needed updates?


Marc Goldbach October 3, 2014
Please add more levels and more mechanics.

Like, REALLY REALLY nice.

Love iitt

Tried all the VR apps out there. Tried it on my Cardboard+ Galaxy S5.This was the most fun for me and my family. Continue the good work. This is with games like this that VR will become mainstream. To the dude that said it was TOO difficult, my 7 years old daughter got to level two by herself!Maybe VR is not for you…PS: look at your feet to toggle stop/walk and head look up will make you jump.


dizzy zane December 28, 2013
Since there is no tutorial, it’s pretty hard to figure out how to play the game.Here is my go:If you look closely, you’ll see a white stream of dots.If you look down at the floor, you’ll see a red stop man.You want to align the two until the man turns green and youstart moving forward at a constant rate.To jump, you push your phone sharply upwards.To look around, look around with your phone in front of your face.If a tutorial and save mechanism is added will be ★★★★★ rating for me.

Works with or without a controller but MUCH easier with.Worked great with a Moto X and a Moga Pocket Controller (aka Moga Mobile) using the Moga Universal Diver.


srujan barai July 23, 2014
Looking at the other VR games out there, this is best so far. More feature like low speed in initial levels would be better. Also no tutorial.


Ron Farley December 12, 2013
I received my durovis dive today. While most of the games are good. This one actually feels like being in a new place. Looking forward to what’s to come next


A Google User May 2, 2014
Why i can’t make it walk? Its only stares around


Dennis Graves April 14, 2014
VR ..finally!! Made my own head set out of binoculars and foam ..downloaded all Dive games and loving the way your team drags us right INTO the game..thank you DIVE


Daryle Henry August 19, 2014
Really fun. Wish it was longer though. Music is messed up on the Yellow level though.


Akmal Alim February 26, 2014
We need to use Oculus Rift to get the experience this game. But, is not supported this mobile.


Jan Ruzicka April 2, 2014
Please make a full version, will def pay money for a game like this!


Hayden Goetz July 12, 2014
A little bit of a learning curve but afterwards it is tremendous fun.


russ hughes January 11, 2014
