Pierhead Arcade Now Available for PlayStation VR

PlayStation VR owners looking for some nostalgic fun might just find some in the newly released Pierhead Arcade. The game’s aim is simple: immerse players in their own private boardwalk arcade and present them with a fair few of the classic ticket games they enjoyed in their youth. Pierhead Arcade offers players several different mini-games to choose from, including:

  • Rocket Ball (aka Skee-Ball)
  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Comet Drop
  • Arctic Shuffle
  • Super Punch
  • Binary Dash
  • Honey Rush
  • Shooting Gallery
  • Scarab Toss
  • Dino Whack
  • Cannonball Bounce
  • Rapid Fire
  • Claw Machine
  • Zombie Shootout

All of these games award tickets and high scores. Tickets can be exchanged at the virtual prize booth for interactive prizes, while the high scores get logged on the game’s global leaderboards. Moving from game to game is accomplished by teleportation, probably in an effort to minimize motion sickness. Pierhead arcade also boasts the ability to accurately simulate the arcade experience thanks to physics-based gameplay and one-to-one movement. See the launch trailer below for a better idea of what the game is like.

Pierhead Arcade is now available on PlayStation VR as well as PC (its original home).
