These are the best Google Cardboard VR games you can play

The difference between Google Cardboard and other virtual reality headsets available around the world is that the former is based on a simplistic design principle, is rather cheap and allows allows everyone, young and old, rich or not, to enjoy the virtual reality experience without worrying about its cost.

Google Cardboard, aside from being cheap, is remarkably easy to use. All you need is a Viewer and then fold it up to start viewing virtual reality content, many of them in 360 degree. Here's a list of the best ten virtual reality games that you will be able to play and enjoy on Google Cardboard.

BombSquad VR for Cardboard 

If you a fan of arcade games, you'll love this one. Like most games, Bombsquad VR comes with a number of levels, each of which you will have to clear by using up to eight players. In the process, you will have to dodge bombs and obstacles and capture flags- all by using a third part controller. A must-play if you devote a lot of your weekend time to games and the virtual reality experience will be a great add-on as well.


This one is a must for those who love playing high-intensity, adrenaline-pumping games. It is a VR-variant of the popular award-winning game  AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! which was initially available for PCs but later moved on to Android. Once you start playing it, you'll get to perform a range of stunts like diving from rooftops of tall buildings, spray-paint as many walls as you like and perform risky stunts like snaking around girders and gliding along-side super skyscrapers to win kisses and hugs. I can't wait to play this one.

End Space VR

If you love shooting games, we'll definitely recommend you to try out End Space VR. This space shooter game comes with AAA graphics and 3D sound along with a fully-immersive VR experience. Once you start playing it, you'll get to play in a choice of three different space environments and your mission will be to shoot down enemy spaceships and manuevre through intense space battles using your head movements. Your spaceship will be armed with a range of lasers and armaments to let you fight your way through waves of evil hoardes in space.

End Space VR is compatible with Google Cardboard only and you should buy it only if your phone is compatible with Google Cardboard.


While not based in space, this third person virtual reality shooter game can be played with the help of a game controller pad, including Bluetooth ones that work with Android. It's an action-packed thriller involving campaigns where you will have to eliminate a large number of bad guys to win. VR battles are usually fun and if you play the game's multi-player version with your friend, the overall fun will be a lot more than usual.

Insidious VR

If you've got a liking for horror flicks and crave to understand the afterlife, do give this game a try. Otherwise, don't. Even though it won't take much of your time, Insidious VR, named after its popular namesake movie series, shows you a trailer of Insidious 3: Into the Further, where actress Elise Rainer, a popular character in the movie, 'acts as your guide to the horrors of the afterlife, as you navigate the Further’s darkest reaches in this chilling VR experience.'

The game has received an average rating of 4.3 on 5 and as per user reviews, shows among the best trailers for a horror movie thanks to the add-on experience that virtual reality can bring.


If you're thinking about letting your kids enjoy a great virtual reality experience, this game would be perfect for them. The main character in the game is a little astronaut who glides through space, finds new things and avoids incoming asteroids. Apart from learning a lot about space, your kids will also enjoy the 360-degree view that comes with the game.

Star Wars VR

A VR-gaming edition of the popular Star Wars series, this game will take you right back to the roar of the machines and the hi-tech desert warfare that the characters of the movie indulged themselves in.

While playing the game, you will play the role of a secret agent for the Resistance in scenarios matching those of the latest Star Wars movie- The Force Awakens. If you've seen the movie, you'll be able to relive the experience through this game and get to win battles in typical Star Wars' style.

Roller Coaster VR

If we are talking about virtual reality, a roller coaster surely cannot miss out being among the best VR games. Apart from making you roll and coast while you play, the game also involves some water travel as well as a shaky ride through a jungle.

The ride is quick and turbulent and if you've been on a real-life roller coaster, you wouldn't find the game too different, even though it might leave you with a bit of nausea once you're done gaming.

Shadowgun VR

Yet another third-person shooter game with a virtual reality flavour in it, Shadowgun VR offers just a single level compared to its Android version, but you will still enjoy it as long as it lasts thanks to the intensity, attention to detail and because it is free.


While a comprehensiev VR game is in development, we're sure you will be desperate to buy one after you experience the impressive graphics in the demo version.

InMind VR

This is a great game for those who like fixing things and performing surgeries. Your role in the game will be to shrink into as ant-man-esque size and then get into some else's body to fix it from the inside. Your wirk will involve mending neurons in someone's brain or fixing other stuff to make the person healthy again.

The game is free, is easy to play and can be a great way to pass your time when you aren't feel like engaging in puzzles and high-intensity games which sap all the remaining energy in your head after a long day's work.
