Cubism is a casual VR puzzle game that plays a bit like a 3D version of Tetris. But fear not, while the puzzle concept is simple, cubism will have you scratching your head as the difficulty increases across its stages. Challenge your mind in Cubism, as you assemble increasingly complex shapes out of colorful blocks.

Its sleek, casual design makes it great for relaxing seated play as you immerse yourself in a zen environment and reason your way through 90 puzzles which will put your spatial thinking skills to the test. There are hours and hours’ worth of gameplay just waiting to be enjoyed.

The bright, void-like environment makes it easy to forget about the real world as you focus on finding the right fit for the pieces before you to the backdrop of a beautiful piano soundtrack recorded just for Cubism by pianist Sahila Wong.

Thanks to hand-tracking support, you can even play without needing to pick up your controllers which is probably the best implementation of Quest hand-tracking available to date. Cubism is available on the Oculus store and on Steam.

2. Puzzling Places

Puzzling Places is a relaxing and wholesome 3D jigsaw puzzle where players put together hyper-realistic miniatures of beautiful places from around the globe. This is one truly for the jigsaw puzzlers. The wonderful and mind-boggling series of 3D puzzles are made from 3D scans of real-life places, taking you across the globe as you solve them.

By establishing a meditative and calm atmosphere, the game focuses on achievable challenges and a tangible feeling of progression and completion. A modern take on an age-old pastime, Puzzling Places provides fun for all the family thanks to its simple gameplay and easy controls with the ability to play seated, standing or at full room scale.

Going from flat jigsaw puzzles to 3D puzzles will stretch your brain in satisfying new ways as you use all your 2D jigsaw strategies such as sorting by colors, edges, and the like while leaning into your spatial reasoning sense to find the right connections between pieces. Even more satisfying – when you’re done you have a tiny 3D diorama to explore! Puzzling Places is available from the Oculus store for Quest and Quest 2, on the Pico store for Pico 4, and also available for PlayStation VR.

Key Features include:

  • 17 unique puzzles created from detailed photogrammetry 3d scans

3. Tetris Effect

This blast from the past takes the iconic tile Tetris to a whole new level, with incredible visuals and audio added to levels that are more challenging than ever. Research has shown that a classic game of Tetris can be a better stressbuster than meditation and what better way to experience that than with a VR headset in tow?

One of the must-have VR games, Tetris VR takes players on an incredible journey through starlit universes and deep beneath the oceans. This wonderous visual world centers on the concepts of relaxation, focus, and escape. Gameplay evolves based on your experience, with music and visuals shifting based on your own personal reactions.

Every bit as addictive as the original, the kaleidoscope visuals in Tetris Effect are extraordinary, amplifying a feeling of total immersion. A breathtakingly gorgeous reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time – Tetris like you’ve never seen, heard, or felt it before.

Music, backgrounds, special effects – everything down to the Tetriminos themselves, pulse, shimmer and explode with how you’re playing, making the game something you’ll want to experience over and over again.

As you maneuver the blocks, you’ll hear sounds that fit into the beat. Don’t lose yourself too much in the sights and sounds as some levels will take skill and practice to complete, even on ‘Normal’ difficulty. A post-launch update to the game has brought cross-platform multiplayer to Tetris Effect so you can play with friends no matter if they’re playing in VR or on a flatscreen. Tetris Effect is available on Steam for most PCVR headsets, on the Oculus store for Rift and Quest headsets, and is also available for PSVR.

5. A Fisherman’s Tale

This award-winning, mind-bending VR puzzle game combines solving intricate puzzles with a race to turn on a lighthouse’s light just before The Big Storm hits, with the help of some fun sidekicks.

I’ve found the concept of this game really cool, and it plays incredibly well with cleverly designed and immersive gameplay. I love the layers of size and interaction with your smaller and larger self, and it does really feel like you are in an interactive tale.

Anyone can enjoy this whether new or a veteran of virtual reality. A Fisherman’s Tale is fun and unique and perfect for enjoying with the whole family. It is a very good place to start with VR puzzle games, with its relatively short gameplay and fairly intuitive tasks that are challenging without being frustrating.

The only issue I’ve had is that it only took me around two hours to complete which is not ideal if you are looking for something to come back to again and again. I would recommend that it is worth it for some fun on a rainy afternoon, just don’t be expecting hours and hours’ worth of play.

The game may be short but it is a case of quality over quantity. Plus even though you do get to the end of the story, I often find myself going back and enjoying it all again purely for the fantastic graphics and charming storyline. You can read more about A Fisherman’s Tale on their website and purchase it for most VR headsets.

6. I Expect You to Die 2

Immerse yourself in the super spy story provided by I Expect You to Die 2 which will have you scratching your head and developing hunches as you embark on exciting missions in this brilliant VR puzzle game.

I Expect You to Die 2 can only be played sitting down and is ideal for a slightly more relaxed puzzling session on a quiet evening or the weekend, aside from the deaths! I’ve found that it has fantastic mobility for a game that is seated only, and it does not detract from the experience in any way.

The story of this game is truly epic and looks like something sprung out of a James Bond movie. The villain’s plan is extremely smart, and the puzzles make sense and fit perfectly into place. Don’t get me wrong, it is definitely hard, and you have to really use your brain to pull through individual levels.

The satisfaction you feel after completing it is unmatched and you can even discover alternate ways of completing each individual level and it really helps you with the speed run of each level too. I felt like this game even provided character development and he matures, beginning to trust you more as the game progresses.

I have spent ample time on this game trying to figure it out and hours upon hours attempting speed runs, collecting souvenirs, and just generally enjoying the game from its soundtrack to the fantastic voice acting. I could not recommend it more. I Expect You to Die 2 is available to purchase off the Steam or Oculus store for the Oculus Quest, Quest 2, and most PC VR headsets, including the Valve Index, Rift, Vive, WMR, and Pimax headsets.

7. Maskmaker

Playing as the Maskmaker’s apprentice, delve into this incredible experience and learn the magic of crafting masks and meet enigmatic beings that reside in the game. Explore your way through the ‘mask realm’ and solve puzzles to discover the true identity of the mysterious Prospero.

You’ll spend a lot of time in Prospero’s workshop, chiseling, painting, and then wearing beautifully intricate masks. When exploring the dream-like realm you’ll find different figures with unique masks. Making the same mask allows you to take control of that character to move and progress through the game.

When you don’t have the materials required to make a new mask, you embark on an exciting expedition to explore three different worlds. This can be a more tedious aspect of the game to search the same environments again and again. I have found that a lot of the gameplay becomes simple, mindless foraging which I find quite relaxing but isn’t ideal if you want to progress through the story.

As a downside, some of the movements can be a little annoying, with walking speeds too slow and running speeds too fast, not to mention turning taking forever even on the highest setting. You will need a fairly sturdy pair of VR legs to play this game for more than 30 minutes at a time.

It is perfect for a slow-paced, introspective puzzling experience and I really enjoy the compelling gameplay so would recommend giving it a try. Maskmaker is available on Steam, PSVR, the Oculus store, and Viveport.

8. Angry Birds VR: Isle Of Pigs

Enjoy a classic game of Angry Birds with the all-immersive gameplay of VR that puts a bird-flinging slingshot in the palm of your hand. Travel to exotic beaches, steep cliffs, and snowy slopes while destroying structures in the most spectacular ways. Explore the 104 different stages on a remote island that provide endless hours of fun and are enjoyable to come back to time and time again.

It is truly a game to get stuck into with the ability to build your own levels to share with your friends. With around 17,000 user-created levels to date, I’ve found this is a particularly cool aspect of the game which enhances its replayability and general enjoyment.

Angry Birds VR is one of the most accessible games available on Quest 2 with sitting and standing options that make it suitable for all ages and abilities. Its static nature is also perfect for newcomers to VR, as I have found that it causes very little motion sickness. Playing in VR is a complete game changer as being able to hold the slingshot in your hands and pull back to release the bird really makes you a part of the experience as opposed to just playing a game.

It’s really fun translating the original gameplay of adjusting angles and strategic shooting to knock over pigs with the truly fantastic 360-degree angles that VR adds. The excellent graphics and smooth gameplay add to the immensely satisfying feeling of watching towers crumble when you’ve mastered the best technique. The levels definitely push you to try different angles and the challenge of getting three stars turns this game quickly into an addictive quest to topple towers to perfection.

9. The Room VR: A Dark Matter

The Room VR drops you into the middle of an investigation into the disappearance of an esteemed Egyptologist. By exploring cryptic locations, examining fantastic gadgets, and entering an otherworldly space, push your puzzling skills to the test as you look for clues to solve the mystery.

Designed from the ground up for the unique capabilities of VR, you can inhabit the spine-tingling world of The Room and interact with its strange contraptions. This VR puzzle game is a genuine must-buy with a fantastic mix of puzzle and escape room gameplay, alongside incredible visuals that provide a level of close interaction that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

The Room VR combines gentle exploration and lateral thinking with the correct amount of getting hands-on with puzzle boxes. I have found that the designers really utilized VR very well as I had to use both my hands to wriggle and manipulate certain puzzle elements in order to get them to work.

For me, the game is challenging enough to keep it interesting and the option of using hints helped keep me engaged throughout the game. I did use some of them as a last resort but liked that they were available, rather than going in circles without progressing. The Room VR is one of the best VR puzzle games you can play today. It is available on all major VR game stores, and you can learn more about it on their website.

10. Myst VR

Unravel the mysteries of Myst islands and other stunning, long-dormant locations as you play a key role in uncovering stories of ruthless family betrayal, exploring deeper connections, and making choices that will affect both you, and the world of Myst itself.

Built from the ground up to play in VR, Myst is teeming with new art, new sound, re-imagined interactions, and even optional puzzle randomization. If you played Myst in the 90s, I would strongly recommend coming back to this fully 3D and VR-incorporated version with its wonderfully nostalgic feel.

If you are a patient problem solver who doesn’t need a lot of ‘prompting’ then this is the perfect puzzle game for you. I find it incredibly rewarding to work through the gameplay and the note-taking abilities are particularly fantastic in developing your thoughts. Note-taking was an update that was greatly wanted and has significantly improved the immersion of the game and ease in recording clues and evidence.

I have often thought of this game to be sort of like an escape room, with everything having a meaning that you can use to move on to the next challenge. Myst is an enjoyable challenge and has excellent graphics for the Quest 2 which creates a truly unique experience with every corner of the game filled with detail.

If you are looking for an experience that will immerse you into a complex world where everything ties together for several hours, Myst is a really good choice.

11. Kartoffl

Kartoffl is a fun puzzle adventure that requires you to use all your puzzling skills to guide a group of adorable spuds with minds of their own through the 60 different, challenging levels. The immersive gameplay, intuitive interactions, and playful visuals make this a truly enjoyable game to come back to.

Kartoffl is executed to perfection with a delivery that sets it apart from other games. Near flawless polish, fantastic attention to detail artistically, and consistency that fellow VR players will agree can be a tricky thing to find, makes it an extremely enjoyable game and definitely worth buying.

Ideal for perfection-striving puzzlers, each level has multiple solutions that allow you to return again and again to challenge yourself to collect all three stars. The challenges posed by the levels are very engaging due to the unique combination of VR navigation and interaction. You’ll need to juggle and multitask which keeps you constantly on your toes.

A round requires you to pre-plan, predict and quickly adapt to changing situations, and even sometimes inventing your own solutions on the fly. You do not have a single clue if you are beating the level the intended way or if you are just winging it which I have found really cool because it really does push your creativity to think of ingenious solutions to the problems you encounter.

I’ve been hugely impressed by this terrific VR puzzle game and very much hope that it gains the recognition it deserves. It’s loads of fun and the simple controls and easily understood gameplay make it a perfect game for all ages. Kartoffl is available on the Oculus and Steam stores.

12. Floor Plan 2

Inspired by escape rooms, Floor Plan 2 is a comedy adventure packed with more puzzles than you can imagine. This game is perfect for a VR beginner or someone who is new to the puzzle game world and needs somewhere to start.

I would strongly recommend Floor Plan 2 if you are someone who enjoys puzzle games but finds them bland and unoriginal over time. Floor Plan 2 always has something to keep you thinking and is completely engaging, right down to the cool cartoony graphics that make this game stand out with an art style that is something a bit different and fresh.

The concept of the game is very well thought through, with an elevator in the building that takes you everywhere in the building but with the twist that every floor is a gateway to a different world. You must solve a series of mind-bending puzzles to travel onwards through connected escape rooms to continue on your mission to retrieve a lost treasure that will turn the company’s fortunes around.

One of the coolest aspects of this game is the ability to revisit completed puzzles to find new, remixed challenges waiting for you that will provide hours more fun and a real task for the mind. The difficulty of this game feels perfect; you have to think about it at first but then becomes much easier. Floor Plan 2 is available on Steam and on the Oculus store and supports most PC VR headsets as well as the Quest, Quest 2 and Quest Pro.

13. Red Matter 2

Red Matter 2 lets you dive into a dystopian Cold War and solve numerous environmental, physics, and logic puzzles with the help of your tools as you enjoy beautiful, fully physicalized environments.

Red Matter 2 gives you a clear view of what VR is capable of. The graphics are beyond incredible, definitely some of the best on Quest 2, and will have you forgetting what room you are playing in. Exploring this fully interactive world is amazing and it is specifically designed to enhance the feeling of immersion in virtual reality.

This game is perfect for a blend of puzzling, adventure, and combat, with a storyline that will have you sucked into this strange world, and your brain will constantly be working to map out your next steps.

One of the best things about Red Matter 2 is that it is perfect for all experience levels. The fantastic story and graphics mean that it is equally enjoyable for a newbie or expert without being overcomplicated or overwhelming.

It is just challenging enough to make it entertaining, but not frustrating and you’ll never feel like giving up on it. If you do die or fail, it only takes you back a few steps in the game so is a perfect balance to allow that learning curve.

Red Matter is truly a must-buy for a VR enthusiast and is available on the Oculus and Steam stores for most VR headsets.

14. Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is the ultimate multiplayer VR puzzle game experience that will test not only your puzzling skills but your speed, communication skills, and even your friendships. With one player trapped inside a virtual room with a ticking time bomb, it’s up to the other players to give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual.

As a local multiplayer game, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a great way to experience VR with all your friends and have a game night that is just a little bit different. With a different time bomb every time, procedurally generated puzzles keep the action fresh and exciting to challenge your problem-solving skills. It is definitely not a game for a quiet and peaceful night, the fast and furious pace and excitement promises hours of fun and some potentially exploded friends.

The controls of the game are intuitive, and the graphics are sharp and vibrant on the Oculus Quest 2. The only thing to be aware of is that Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes does not have an online multiplayer option. Bomb defusing is not a solo endeavor so make sure you have a way to get all your friends and family involved before checking it out.

This is another great game for people inside and outside of VR since it is very clever, well thought out, and incredibly rewarding once you and your partners defuse the bomb.

15. GNOG

GNOG is a 3D puzzle game set in a tactile world that allows you to explore monstrous virtual toys. Set to a relaxing and dynamic soundtrack that evolves with each level, the surreal worlds, and joyful puzzles of GNOG will have you marveling at this quaint world.

Inspired by real-world toy designs, each of the 9 levels is a monster’s head that you can pop open to reveal the inside of the creature’s mind. Packed with knobs and dials, it is up to you to interact with all the different aspects to solve the level. Each playful interaction generates lively feedback and surprising consequences with every single GNOG head a miniature world to discover.

GNOG is perfect for a more relaxing VR puzzle game experience with its tranquil soundtrack and leisurely pace of gameplay. It is quite short and not too challenging but is still a creative and entertaining VR puzzle experience. The gameplay is somewhat similar to the ‘room exploration’ genre of games, only at a much smaller scale.

GNOG is one of the most creative VR puzzle games available. Every corner of the game oozes personality and pops with color. Even from the opening moments, the dazzling art style creates jaw-dropping imagery that works especially well in a VR headset.

16. A Rogue Escape

A Rogue Escape best vr puzzle games

A Rogue Escape is a tactile, experience-driven VR experience focused on adventure and exploration whilst solving puzzles. It manages to get the difficulty level just right, and I have found that figuring out the mech mechanics is challenging but not so difficult that it leaves you feeling frustrated. The sense of satisfaction at the end alone is worth it in this game.

One of the best aspects of this game is that there is an in-game adjustable floor for players of all heights. I’ve found this particularly beneficial in increasing the comfort when I am playing, and it allows all the graphics to feel perfectly in proportion to you.

A Rogue Escape can only be played on room-scale mode so it’s important to ensure you have a large enough area and have taken the necessary safety precautions in line with your particular headset.

I thoroughly enjoy the format of this game with the concept of needing to figure out how to use the controls that operate this big machine and what you should do when it is up and running. The true magic is that you eventually figure out what all the different controls do, and the developers have done an amazing job creating challenges and graphics that get you truly immersed in the puzzling.

However, A Rogue Escape is pretty short and not a game that you’ll spend hours and hours on. I would recommend it for its fantastic graphics and the satisfaction of figuring out how everything works but not if you are looking for something with good replayability.

17. The Curious Tale Of The Stolen Pets

This heart-warming tales allow you to solve the mystery of the stolen pets by solving puzzles in wonderful miniature worlds crafted from the ground up for VR. The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is perfect for all ages due to its cartoony art style, fun gameplay, and a sense of challenge at times with the different puzzles.

The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is accessible for everyone with sitting, standing, and room-scale modes that provide different ways to experience it. I have found that there are no issues with dizziness or motion sickness with the smooth controls making it an easier place to start if you are not used to the motion of VR.

The puzzles struck the perfect balance of leaving me confused for a little while, but not so much to the point that I wanted to leave the game. The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is one of the most relaxing VR puzzle games and the beautiful scenes plus fantastic graphics make it very easy to lose yourself for a few hours.

The only potential issue with The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is that there are only a handful of puzzles so you can expect around 2-4 hours depending on your puzzling skills. It is well worth checking out for an afternoon of fun but not if you are looking for a game that you can keep coming back to. The Curious Tale Of The Stolen Pets is available on PSVR, Steam, and the Oculus store, and supports most popular VR headsets including Quest 2.

18. Moss: Book 1 And Moss: Book 2

Moss Book 1 and 2 easily rank as some of the best VR puzzle games I have played. It is not that they are particularly challenging, the most action-packed, or the biggest, because they are not. But they are some of the most thoughtfully designed and crafted games I have ever seen.

The extraordinary level of craft that has been put into the Moss games elevates them to what feels more like an experience, a journey, and a real adventure than just a solid game. The puzzles are super fun to solve with just the right amount of complexity and reward.

Moss: Book 2 is a direct continuation of the previous game and includes everything I loved about Book 1 whilst adding clever new mechanics, puzzle designs, characters, and environments. Many people will tell you how connected they get to the little mouse Quill and all her friends and nothing pulls on your heartstrings more than this journey to help save their world.

It took me around 8-9 hours to complete, but I immensely enjoyed every moment and took my time exploring every corner of this amazing, expanded world. There’s plenty to keep you entertained, no matter how quickly you progress through it.

19. The Talos Principle

The Talos Principle VR

The Talos Principle is a virtual reality version of Croteam’s critically acclaimed first-person puzzle game in the tradition of philosophical science fiction. Throwing you into a strange, contradictory world of ancient ruins and advanced technology, the unique and thought-provoking storyline provides a fantastic backdrop to a steady increase in the complexity of puzzles as you learn new techniques.

If you enjoy figuring out how to get from one point to another with obstacles and puzzles to solve then this is a game that you will never be able to stop playing. With over 20 hours worth of content and gameplay, this is possible.

The Talos Principle is accessible for all and can be played with sitting, standing, and room-scale options which I’ve found very helpful, as it can suit different ways of experiencing a VR puzzle game when in different moods.

The Talos Principle uses true locomotion support, allowing you to teleport, instant teleport, blink teleport, and classic full locomotion to move around. I would strongly recommend only trying out this game if you are comfortable teleporting as I have found that the free movement in this game can be quite annoying and clunky which can disrupt the good gameplay experience.

20. Shadow Point

Shadow Point VR puzzle game

Built for VR, Shadow Point is a story-driven VR puzzle game set between a mountaintop observatory and an ever-changing fantasy world. As the adventure progresses, you will manipulate gravity, play with your own reflection, walk on walls, peer through a magical lens to reveal an alternate universe, and much more.

With over 80 mind-bending puzzles and full freedom of movement and hand tracking, Shadow Point is extremely fun to play and the powerful and compelling story will have you invested in this puzzling experience in no time.

The puzzles are truly fantastic, with some difficult enough that I had to sleep on them but I was able to crack them in the end, and Shadow Point certainly provides immense satisfaction when you do figure out the puzzles. It took me around 20 hours to complete the game entirely and I enjoyed every second.

Shadow point is a very good starter game for people who are new to VR with excellent gameplay and cool graphics that allow you to learn the ropes of gaming in VR. It is also well equipped to combat VR newcomer motion sickness with smooth movements making it much easier to proceed that jump movements, enabling you to focus fully on the puzzle itself without worrying about moving.

21. Down The Rabbit Hole

This VR adventure takes place prior to Alice’s arrival in the awe-inspiring and mysterious Wonderland. You must guide her as she travels through this fascinating world; each move she makes is entirely up to you. The gameplay provides a ‘choose your own adventure style experience, allowing you to explore the world your own way, at your pace on a quiet evening.

Through the game’s many twists and turns, you will find yourself exploring the most wonderous corners of Wonderland, solving puzzles, uncovering secrets, and making choices about the story along the way.

Even though this is a third-person game, I felt even more immersed in the storyline than many first-player games I have tried due to the numerous challenges, puzzles, and ample exploring that further enhance the superb graphics and gameplay.

It is not the longest VR game out there and took me around two days of casual playing to get through it. I would still recommend checking it out, as I thoroughly enjoyed the journey I went on and felt it was definitely worth the time.

Down The Rabbit Hole is the perfect VR puzzle game for seated play with its escape room style of the game keeping your mind working as you relax and admire the stunning graphics.

22. Carly And The Reaperman

Carly and the Reaperman is a unique VR co-op experience that balances brains and brawn as together, you puzzle your way through the insidious platforms of the Underworld.

Choose to play as Carly as you run and jump through incredible platform challenges or play as the Reaperman and change the environment around you in real-time to give Carly new places to explore. Some of the levels had my hands sweating with concentration and fear of falling into darkness. There is plenty of invention in the game from evil floating fish to walls of lasers that kill you, plus puzzles all around.

One of the best aspects of this game is that you can play both as a single-player or with friends in multiplayer. If you want an exploration and puzzling VR experience with someone else in tow, Carly and the Reaperman is one of the best choices out there.

The puzzle complexity advances pretty organically and it is perfect for those who like to figure things out for themselves with not too much step-by-step guidance that could ruin the challenge.

The option of playing in room scale for Carly and the Reaperman is one thing I have found truly makes the experience. You might be playing in the third-person, but it really does feel like you have descended into this eerie world.
