The best app lab games for your Meta Quest

A lot of Oculus (now Meta) Quest users are not aware that there are also fantastic games outside the Oculus store. Oculus lists those in the App Lab. Some of those amazing VR Games even for free. Here is a list of some of the best best app labs games.

First of all. Whats the app lab and why aren’t the Games in the normal Store? Oculus allows Developers to release their app before the Games get fully tested. When you load the games inside the Oculus Store the following warning will appear.

Oculus App Lab warning

So thats the only difference basically. Everything else is the same ( You buy the game and they will appear in your headset after the download). Personally I think its great that Meta allows developers to fast track the review Process and begin selling their new Games. Eventually the Games will also move into the official Store. So what are the best experiences in the App Lab?

Pavlov Shack Beta – Price FREE!

Get the Game for free in the App Lab and thank me later! This is one of the best shooter games on the Meta Quest right now and you can get access through the applab for free. Every time I talk to People about good shooter games they appear that they don’t know about it because it’s not in the Oculus Store yet. Personally I don’t even know why the developer would give away such an amazing game for free but I’m not complaining.

If you’re looking for a good shooter then download Pablov Shack Beta. Btw if you’re looking for some of the best paid VR Shooters check my other review here. Personally I experience a bit of motion sickness but the game is well made. Can’t complain for free.

You can download it for free here:

Dead Second – Price $11.99

Another great VR shooter that can only be found in the Applab is Dead Second. The Game costs $11.99 and is worth every cent. I bought it when they first launched the game and the developers are updating it regularly. Occasionally they release a new Level. No motion sickness for me playing this shooter because the Developers did a great job at the Teleport feature. Amazing Price value and I can highly recommend it!

You can download it here:

Gorilla Tag – Price FREE

Another must download free app is Gorilla Tag. Run around like a silly Gorilla in VR for free. Run, climb, and jump in VR using a unique locomotion method that only needs the movement of your hands and arms. No buttons, no sticks, no teleportation. To me one of the best free Games for the Meta Quest 2. The Game currently has over 30,000 Ratings in the store with an average of 5/5.

You can download it for free here:

Cybrix – Price $9.99

One of my personal favorites at the moment. Cybrix is a arcade squash / racketball game. You basically hit some balls and collect points while doing so. The Game is made by european VR Game Company Holonautic. Some use it as a workout game as the following review shows:
