Best Gear VR Games for Free

Samsung Gear VR is an Android-powered mobile virtual reality device made by Samsung which collaborated with another virtual reality company called Oculus.

When you insert your Galaxy S7 into the Gear VR, it becomes the headset’s display and processing power. The Gear VR itself functions as the controller and holds a high FOV and a custom inertial sensor that communicates with your phone via USB.

There are lots of Gear VR apps available today, but I’m going to tell you about some of the best ones for free right now. Get ready to get into them!

1. Dead and Buried

Do you play shooting games? If so, then this is a good one to check out. Dead And Buried is a fast-paced shooter for Samsung Gear VR, which costs nothing.

With this game, you can use the tilt function to reload your weapon and fire at enemies. Pressing the three buttons will let you jump into the air and attack your opponent.

You can play Horde Mode when you need to deviate from the horde of the zombie and compete against other players in Multiplayer Quickdwarf duel. I found the sound effects in this game amazing.

Here’s a complete step-by-step guide on how to fix black screen issues when using VR headsets.

2. Smash Hit

If you’re looking for a fun free app to play in your Gear VR, Smash Hit is one of the best choices out there. It has an interesting storyline, and you’ll be smashing things left and right.

It’s addicting and fun because of its fast and smooth animations, fantastic graphics, and amazing soundtracks.

Remember to keep track of your ball count.

3. Bait

If you want to relax and play something enjoyable for yourself or for your children out of violence and bloodshed, this game is perfect for you.

Anyways, if your heart beats fast just go for it. It’s the best heartbeat racing simulation available on Gear VR. Go to different lakes to capture different fish. As the motion controller supports are excellent, you’ll find this app amusing.

4. Cuberun. VR

If you’ve ever played video games like Temple Run, then you’ll find it more interesting than the ones who haven’t played it yet. You might ask “Why?”

It’s because this is similar to Temple Run, but with a virtual reality experience. This is an exciting and addicting experience for people who enjoy fast-paced games and challenges.

If you want to play this type of game, you need to be able to run fast enough to collect coins without falling down. As time goes by, the level gets harder and harder until you get bored of it.

5. Suicide Squad: Special Ops VR

If you’re in your late 30s or early 40s, then you may have played The House of the DEAD (or HOD) video games. If not, you’ve probably heard of them.

Suicide Squad: Special Operations VR is similar to The Houser of the Dead game, but this game offers more than just The House of the Dead!

It’s a first-person shooter where you’re stationary, and hordes of enemies come at you from different angles. You have to shoot them all down. There are lots of missions, and in every mission, you can choose different weapons and play with different character classes.

It has some minor drawbacks, but I can’t really say anything bad about it because it costs nothing. Try it out if you enjoy first-person shooter games and Suicide Squad.

6. Herobound: Spirit Champion

Are you a fan of the manga? And do you enjoy playing story-driven games? If the answers are yes, then this is one of the best games for you.

You play as a hero who fights against the forces of darkness by freeing spirits from their prisons.

As you liberate each imprisoned soul, you’ll receive a magic stone that allows you to use special powers to defeat other monsters. You can attack your foes with an arrow or battle them with a weapon.

7. Perfect Burger

If you allow your child to play completely different types of video games instead of violent ones, then this is exactly the kind of video game you should buy him/her.

The concept of this mobile app is totally unique. You’re the owner of a fast-food restaurant in the app and customers come to order their meals from you. You need to prepare different kinds of meals according to your customers’ needs.

There are different ingredients around you. You need to choose the right ingredients when you’re preparing your burger. You need to earn money by cooking the different hamburgers within your quickest time.
