Hot Squat is a virtual reality exercise game created by independent developer Bean Boy Games. Against the backdrop of an eighties-style gymnasium with its pumping electronic music, players take on the challenge of completing as many squats as possible in any given session. With fitness VRs being in vogue, Hot Squat is a great free alternative to titles such as VR Fitness.
Have fun AND burn calories
Playing Hot Squat is an enjoyable experience which doubles as an incredibly effective form of exercise. Lost within the brightly coloured Flynn Fitness gym, your squat count dramatically rises before your eyes. The game is well-made, and it can tell if you are not squatting properly – making for an intense workout.
Pure indie ethos
Although the graphics are basic, the game is exceptionally well-designed. With its eccentric and immersive game play, it is sometimes easy to forget that it is totally free. Hot Squat is a delight to play and can be used seriously as part of a daily fitness routine – even if your sore legs won’t thank you for it the day after.
