Hand Simulator is the third game in a series of life simulation releases created by HFM Games. As you might have guessed from the title, this game allows you to assume the role of your own hands! If it sounds weird, it’s because it is. But we think that in the most positive way possible since this release is incredibly addictive and funny!
Why You Should Have a VR Set
Before we start the review, we should pinpoint that this game requires owning a VR set such as Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. You can play it by using only your computer and mouse, but we don’t advise it. If you do so, you should be ready for occasional control issues, and you won’t have to experience the Hand Simulator to the fullest. But if you do have a VR set prepared, get set for the ride of your life!
You will take your hands through dozens of levels where you will be able to do various things. The levels are added continuously, and the authors are even listening to the community and adding the best ideas. At this point, you can find out how hard it is to milk a cow, fish, or handle weapons. The latter one is a considerable challenge since it’s devilishly hard to hit the target.
Test Your Hands against the World
If you think you mastered the game, you can take your knowledge online and see where you are at against players from around the globe. Of course, you can also stick to the people you know and connect to play with your friends. Either way, you are set for tremendous fun thanks to the Hand Simulator multiplayer mode. The achievements make things even more interesting as you will be racing your friends who will rank higher. The collectible cards are also a part of the game, which adds another layer of competition and takes things to the next level.
The graphics are incredibly realistic, although there are occasional glitches. Although the game is cheap, the developers didn’t opt for pixel-art or indie graphics. Instead, they made the visual presentation realistic and incredibly detailed. You can additionally appreciate the world thanks to the fact that you are viewing it from the first-person perspective. The sounds fit nicely with the overall atmosphere of the game, but there is nothing about them that stands out.
