The Best Virtual Reality Games for Kids (Part III)

If your child likes mini golf, this vibrant game is one that they will love.

Cloudlands VR Minigolf

Remember going on family trips when you were a child and winding up at a miniature golf course? They always had some cheesy dinosaur or pirate theme. But you were a child and you loved that stuff, so it was incredible.

Cloudlands VR Minigolf tries to refine that “putt-putt” experience and bring it into the VR world, and they have done a pretty great job of making it into an immersive experience.

Cloudlands is colorful and bright and the controls are simple to use. That doesn’t mean it’s simple to play though. This game can be as challenging as mini-golf is in the real world. However, that frustration is what makes it maddening and fun for all ages.

The included courses are both complex and fun. But the real replay value comes from the game’s “course creation mode.” You can create and play your very own mini-golf courses, and you don’t have to tear up no one’s backyard to do it. You can even share your course with everyone when you’ve done making your masterpiece. You can play courses fabricated by other users too.

It’s easy to play, fun, and you can create and play your very own mini-golf course.

Smashbox Arena

Smashbox Arena is a part first-person shooter and part multiplayer dodgeball.

This game is dodgeball on steroids. There are many types of game balls, from homing missile-type balls to balls that change into huge rolling boulders that can crush enemies. You can even get a sniper-rifle-type dodgeball shooter for long-range, precise shots.

Many game modes and arenas make for all sorts of fun. If this game’s popularity sustains, there will always be someone to play against. If no human players are accessible, you can still play bot matches against AI opponents.

Even though this is a multiplayer first-person shooter, it’s basically just dodgeball, so there isn’t guts and blood involved, which keeps the game kid-friendly.
