Editor’s Review

 

Unfortunately we have to give this game a bad rating – even with the tutorial, we were unable to get any darts to hit the board!  However, this might not necessarily be the developer’s fault – HoloLens simply cannot detect the angle at which the player is holding his/her hand.  This game is probably outside the limits of what the HoloLens can accommodate with its current set of sensors.
