Rating on Pico store4.1/5

GenreRhythm & Music

Mutrix is undoubtedly inspired by Beat Saber, but it also has its share of differences. It uses a free-to-play gaming model and offers unlocked songs with gems. There is also a subscription model to access unlimited songs for 30 days.

Though the graphics are a way behind Beat Saber, the motion tracking is smooth, and the gameplay is engaging. The developers have made noticeable improvements in the last few months to get this in check, and it’s still fun and worth playing. One of Mutrix’s unique features is that it allows you to add custom songs, amping up the entertainment factor and acting as a free alternative to Beat Saber – especially useful for Pico users.

11. Punch Fit (Quest, PCVR)

Punch Fit is a VR boxing simulator that lets you burn calories while having fun. You can mimic the movements of a boxer and dodge incoming attacks from your opponents. You can also learn different combinations of punches, dodges, and rushes to spice up your gameplay.

You can choose from a variety of workouts that fit your schedule and skill level. They are constantly updating the game with new workouts to keep you challenged.

Blaston is a fast-paced PvP shooter game that lets you step into a futuristic arena and battle with opponents in real-time. The game is available on PCVR, Pico, and Quest platforms and offers tight gameplay mechanics and innovative combat moves. This is our personal favourite free to play game that we keep coming back to.

It’s a 1v1 duelling online shooter. Guns will spawn around you and your job is to pick them up and start firing them at your opponent while they are doing the exact same thing to you. Bullets and projectiles move in slow motion which means you end up doing a bunch of squats and lunges trying to dodge everything.

You’ll never skip leg day with Blaston. It’s no wonder it makes it to the #1 position of our best free VR games
