Great multiplayer bow-wielding action game with some strategy mixed into it. The moving around takes a little getting used to, but once you get it, it's really fun. You move by drawing your bow and launching yourself flying in the direction of the shot. Zig-zag in the air while popping your targets even before hitting the ground. It sounds nauseating but the developers of Hibow made a great job and it feels excellent.
Free multiplayer version of hugely popular single-player Oculus exclusive title Lone Echo. A zero-g disc-throwing friend-punching (and wall-punching) sport with a very competitive nature.

Love it or hate it Gorilla Tag, is a hugely popular multiplayer game with unique locomotion and infectious gameplay.
