This is an educational game agar.io from BBC Earth in which you play the role of Oogie, a beetle in the South African desert. Kick stinging ants and dodge predators while you chase the girl of your dreams across varied terrains. Learn facts along the way, as the game is peppered with commentary much like a nature documentary.
Oogie may not be the most pulse-quickening of games, but its cheerful approach represents a nice mix of informative and engaging. It's designed for use with a separate gamepad – trackpad navigation on this game can be tricky. Oogie GearVR costs $2.99.
