Game Description

Drums of War is a VR music rhythm game that puts you in command of a giant orc avatar ravaging the fantasy landscapes, deserts, and frozen fields inhabited by pesky dwarves and their friends. Hit the drums to the beat of the music to walk. Get off of the beat … and your orc will start to turn to one side! You can also bang on the side drums to turn – allowing for full 360 degrees of movement.

But wait: There’s more! Your drums are also a powerful arsenal! The two center drums fire off destructive cannonballs when hit – and you can also use the stick to throw fireballs. Take the fight to the dwarves, destroy their villages and reclaim the right to once again call yourself the King of the Mountain!
