LOOP WORLD by German Gamegeneerin is VR puzzle platformer game, with a special looping memory mechanic.
The player helps a small runner by moving blocks and other objects to create a path that eventually leads the runner to his goal.
Every time the runner falls from a platform or into a gap between objects, he is reset to the beginning of the parcour, the blocks which the player moved remember their movement though and repeat it.
This enables the player to improve his path-building until he eventually creates a path leading to the goal-platform.
