BoxVR is one of virtual realitys best fitness games, having won our Best VR Fitness Game of the Year in 2019, and its getting even better with the release of its first pack of downloadable content. The Essentials Pack kicks off our VR Game Roundup this week and includes over an hour of new music with 18 additional tracks that range from dubstep to rock. This mix of classes will give players even more variety than ever before.

You wont get a better workout in virtual reality than BoxVR. The game has been supported with a number of excellent free updates, so its definitely worth checking out the BoxVR DLC. Youll help stay fit with a number of catchy new tracks and workouts.

Pinkfongs Baby Shark has become a phenomenon for children and now the catchy song has a virtual reality dancing game. Kids will get to swim with the baby shark underwater and help save them from a dangerous octopus that grabs the titular character, Pinkfong, and William.

While its not providing a serious workout by any means, this child-friendly VR gameis a healthy diversion from seated gaming. Kids will stay active by dancing around to music they like and then using their bubble blasters to fend off the octopus. At a budget price, this will deliver some entertainment for young children during the quarantine. If youre not in the target audience then this is completely skippable.

Virtual reality is getting yet another rhythm-based punching game with Smashing Healthy VR. Specifically designed for fitness enthusiasts, the developer says to smash the box if you want to be healthy! Lacking a specific hook, this is an underwhelming entry in our VR Game Roundup.

As one can expect, Smashing Healthy VR delivers a solid arm workout as youre constantly punching boxes that fly towards you. However, the Steam Early Access title lacks any online leaderboards or anything that separates it from other offerings such as Soundboxingor Beat Saber. Overall, there are better rhythm fitness games to burn calories to at the moment and youd be better off checking out the BoxVR DLC. Smashing Healthy VR might evolve into something special, but it isnt quit there yet.

Finishing off our VR Game Roundup is a meditation app that features a trance-like experience that helps one alter their own state of consciousness. Players use their own voice to explore the world and experience emergent music. Scientists have helped the app provide an elegant symmetry of image, sound and body that takes advantage of loopholes in the way you perceive to facilitate a new experience of yourself and your world.

While Soundselfisnt a game that will help you burn calories, mental health is just as important as physical fitness. For that reason, this unique meditation app will help you recover and relax after a long day.
