Virtual Virtual Reality (£4.19)

Yes, you read that right – Virtual Virtual Reality offers double the virtual and also double the fun. Seriously, it's arguably the most impressive and engrossing Daydream experience to date, with a definite Portal vibe to the humour.

In Virtual Virtual Reality, you play a human in servitude to futuristic robots, who use you to provide "artisanal human companionship" to A.I. entities via VR headsets.

However, things quickly go awry, and it's clear that there very weird and unsettling things happening behind the scenes. It's pretty wacky, wonderful stuff, and a must-play for Daydream enthusiasts.

Proton Pulse Plus (US$2.99)

There have been roughly a billion (give or take) brick-breaking games over the years, but Proton Pulse Plus still manages to feel unique. Why? Because it's right there in your face, of course, but also because your head movements control the paddle – and the ball is coming right at you.

You'll look around to continue bopping the ball back into the 3D field as you take down the floating bricks, plus you can even drop in curved shots depending on how you swat the ball. All the while, the retro-stylized backgrounds pulsate with vibrant colours and the thumping background beats keep things plenty propulsive. This one's a lot of fun.

Fantastic Beasts (£free)

You might not know the difference between a hippogriff and thestral, but that doesn't mean you won't appreciate waving around a magic wand and getting up close and personal with three gigantic (and often intimidating) magical beasts.

Set in Harry Potter's wondrous universe, Fantastic Beasts sees you tend to three mystical creatures while their owner Newt Scamander is away. His voice is there to guide you, mind, and with a few flicks of your wand, you'll be making potions and throwing grubs to gigantic multi-winged eagles in no time.

The gameplay is very basic, and you'll churn through everything there is to see before 20 minutes is up, but the visuals are superb, and kids and Potter fans alike will love it.

Wonderglade (£free)

Wonderglade is definitely aimed at little ones, but that doesn't mean you can't barge them out of the way for a minigame binge yourself. It's okay, you're bigger than them, and their reach is too small. You can do whatever you like.

Games range from minigolf, a marble maze, putting out fires with a hose, and wacking diamonds out of the air with a stick. Admittedly those are probably not the official names, but you get the picture.

Fun cartoon visuals, and different uses of the Daydream View controller make this a fun showcase for what Google's headset is capable of. Think Wii Sports, and you're on the right track.

Netflix VR (£free)

When it comes to watching TV, the bigger the screen the better, right? Well, you might not believe it, but the biggest screen in your flat might be inside your Daydream headset. And the virtual home you watch it in might even be swankier than your own.

Just fire up the Netflix VR app – the very same one as on Gear VR – and you'll be whisked into a posh pad with a massive-looking telly on the wall featuring your very own Netflix queue.

Anything you can watch on your regular TV you can also watch in VR, and while it might seem silly to watch on a virtual TV when you can just stream Netflix to your phone, the experience of being in VR makes the display seem appropriately huge. Plus, it gives you a nice, private viewing space, so you can watch your own faves while someone else streams on your real TV.
