Though drones are popular for hobbyists and the military, not everyone loves them. If you have ever dreamed about knocking the annoying buzzing, electronic pests out of the sky, then Dronihilation VR might be for you.
Set in a future where AI drones have taken over the entire galaxy, only a small resistance of brave space pilots remain able to save the future of human kind. First, players will need to spend time in the arena to get the experience required to face the drone threat before moving on to face the true enemy.
There fives main enemy types, Scout, Supplier, Thor, Destroyer and Ghost. Each one has different behaviours that a pilot will need to learn in order to success in their mission. For example, Scouts will alert nearby allies to your presence, which can result in the player being swarmed under if not very cautious. Other such as the Supplier can restore player HP when destroyed, but while still active it will repair enemy units.
Players are aimed with twin laser cannons, which if they score a dead-on hit can destroy most drone types. However, each cannon requires a cool-down time, so players must choose each shot carefully, especially the destructive double cannon shot. Especially skilled pilots who can survive for long enough can earn a place in the Top 10 Elite to mark their prowess in the battle against the Drone menace.
