The Lenovo Mirage Solo has just launched in the US, and while Lenovo Australia hasn’t announced anything regarding local pricing or availability, those of us with a Daydream View headset can still take advantage with Google offering 50% off some Daydream compatible apps and games.

Narrows – Normally $13.49 – now $6.49
Manage a pirate ship, search for treasure and fight for ocean supremacy.

Flutter VR – Normally $6.99 – now $3.79
Be a tourist in a land of make-believe and go places you never thought could be real.

Walk Man – Normally $3.49 – now $1.69
Journey as far as you can while avoiding cars, trains and water hazards.

The Other Room – Normally $6.49 – now $3.59
Solve puzzles in this virtual escape room and find your way out.

Star Chart VR – Normally $4.89 – now $2.79
Explore outer space in this real time recreation of our Solar System.

While they haven’t been discounted as yet, two other titles have been named by Google as being on-sale. It may take some time for the discount to be applied, so keep checking if these interest you:

Orbital Loop – Currently $2.79
Create new songs and beats by arranging planets in gravitational loops.

Samurai Chef – Currently $1.59
Complete dishes for your customers in this food slicing action game.

That’s some good savings right there. If you haven’t got your hands on a Daydream View headset yet, you will of course need a Daydream compatible handset of which there are only a limited number:

  • Pixel 2
  • Pixel
  • Galaxy S9/S9+
  • Galaxy S8/S8+
  • Galaxy Note 8
  • ZenFone AR
  • Axon 7
  • Mate 9 Pro
  • Moto Z & Z2

The headsets can be purchased from JB Hi-Fi or Telstra stores, or directly from Google through the Google Store online for $149. If you’re wanting to check out what all the fuss is about with VR these days, this is a good way to do it. Check it out.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I bought the Daydream when it first came out. It’s is so buggy, everything crashes all the time and I have a Note 8. I’ve noticed many other people have the same issue. It just sits in my drawer now and I don’t bother using it. Don’t know if these games are worth buying
