Kingspray is a Virtual Reality game created by MunkyFun Inc. available for Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality Platforms. The goal is to tag whatever you want however you desire using real-life spray paint cans
This game gets an A+++ rating from me! There are many different colors of spray paint and a customizable color palette. You can tag a wall or create a masterpiece on a piece of paper. A good friend told me it’s very similar to the graffiti from Jet Set Radio Future, which I’m now looking up because he mentioned it casually as if I already knew what that was.
This game takes previous skills into account such as grabbing and throwing or quickly swiping your hand over a wall. This game also utilizes the Touch Controllers, which make it easy to give yourself cool tags for your avatar to show off. The graphics are great; however, this game has some frame drops if you walk around too much and get into heavy paint usage (the more you spray the more it lags). There is a spray can tutorial to help you get started and know what each button does.
The game tracks your score, how many cans of paint you’ve used, streaks (how many times in a row you’ve tagged something), trophies earned for completing tasks like “tag 5 different spots without getting spotted”, and much more. One of my favorite features is being able to record your session and show off your skills or just sit back and watch your avatar create a masterpiece on the wall with no one controlling it.
There are multiple stages that you unlock as you play each mission. I unlocked Graffiti City, The Subway, and Streets of Blotz so far. There are other stages you can unlock, but they require a lot of skill to reach. I’m still trying to figure out how to get back up on the building in Graffiti City after I fall off 🙂
There is no way to lose this game because checkpoints are set where your progress gets saved if you happen to die or quit. The story is there if you want an excuse to keep playing and getting better at the game.
The best part for me is how customizable it is; you can make your own graffiti tag names (which I assume isn’t allowed in real life, but here we go), choose what type of avatar you want (there are a ton of options like different skin colors, hairstyles, and clothing), and even change the color palette for your spray paint cans.
There are trophies to collect with tasks like “tag 500 spots” or “survive 10 minutes on Streets of Blotz without respawning.” Some of the trophies require you to get a certain amount of tags in one session, so if that’s too hard for you then there are other trophies within your reach.
The controls take a minute to get used to because the buttons aren’t laid out like other games such as Robo Recall (move left joystick and press RT) or Beat Saber (move left joystick and swipe red or blue).
This game has many different colors of spray paint, as I mentioned prior to this, and you’re able to use them however you want. This is a very interactive experience because there are endless options for how you play it. You can be stealthy and tag walls without being seen by anyone or just create your own Graffiti City. You can play with friends online or just be creative by yourself. All in all, the game looks great and has cool features that I haven’t even mentioned yet.
I think this is a must-have for any VR gamer because of the freedom you get while playing it. The only thing I wish was there was a way to see how many cans of spray paint you had left – I’m always forgetting to check and then find myself out of paint.
I would recommend this game to anyone who likes graffiti art, painting, playing video games, or just needs something to keep their mind occupied when they’re bored. The price is great (free) and I’ve already put in several hours of gameplay in one day.
