*A WHOLE LOAD OF NEW GAMES ADDED*


The following games have to be played in mouse HID mode (Configs 0 - 9)

ClearSky 1941 - Mac and PC

This game is the exactly what Rexy gaming is all about. It’s an anti-aircraft game set in WW2, and simulates the kind of scenario that hand wheels were originally invented for. It’s relatively cheap to purchase and unlike most games this one doesn’t come from the Steam store but instead can be found in the Mac App Store or Microsoft store. Like a lot of cheap games it tries to sell you upgrades, but you can progress through the game without them.

Aim FTW Steam - Mac and PC

This is a free game available on steam that is designed for gamers to practice their mouse skills. It features a series of challenges with moving targets that you need to track with the crosshairs . Really simple and a great place to start. 


3daimtrainer.com - web browser, Mac and PC

Much like the above game but with a different selection of games. Some of these are really challenging, but the harder they are the quicker you will improve. 


quickdraw.withgoogle.com - web browser, Mac and PC

Play pictionary with Google AI. It’s that simple. A really good way to casually improve your operating skills whilst inadvertently training skynet to take over the human race. 


IS Defense. Steam - PC only. 

This is by far the greatest game ever for playing with hand wheels. It is pure frantic violence, and will teach you to operate under pressure in no time at all. You have to fight of waves of terrorists from a static machine-gun turret. 

First things first, map the controls so that you can use aim and fire (left and right mouse) on your primary buttons. Your right secondary (middle mouse) can be mapped to fire rockets, and your left secondary can engage Turbo mode. This will come in handy once it gets a bit crazy. 

The aim of the game is to survive as long as possible, and you can only progress to the next level once you've killed a certain amount of terrorists and vehicles. You level up by getting more kills, and this can earn you upgrades like infinite ammo and explosive rounds. However it doesn't get any easier once you get these perks, because the enemy just comes thicker and faster. 

It's useful to have a second person assisting you to act as a spotter and call in supplies. If you look at the left hand side of the screen, there is a bar that goes for 1 to 5. As you get kills the level goes up, and at each stage you get to select a bonus. If you call one in at level 1, you get health and rockets, which land in crates that you have to shoot. It's worth doing this a few times, but try to save the health crates until you really need them. Level 2 is infantry who fight for you and protect your back, they are really handy and help you survive longer. Levels 3 and 4 are artilliary and airstrikes, they're not really worth the effort. It's better to wait until level 5 when you can call in an Apache gunship, and suddenly your survival rate increases dramatically. 

Have fun but remember it's just a game! I've seen people sweating and shaking after 5 minutes of IS Defense. 


Spiral Splatter Steam - PC and Mac

This is the best game for testing your technical skills. The object of the game is to drag a small white dot around a simple course, which is much harder than it sounds. The trouble is, this game was developed to be played with either a gamepad or regular mouse. Playing with hand wheels is significantly harder, so progressing through the game is virtually impossible. That doesn't stop it being completely addictive. 

You only need one button so it's a good candidate for playing with plain handles and foot pedals. That button is the main left mouse button, and used to click and drag the white dot around the course. 

To progress through each stage you need a certain amount of stars. It's relatively easy to complete each level, but you then have to go back and do them in a certain time to get enough stars. This requires a lot of practice, time and muscle memory. It's a great game for teaching hand discipline, because it's as much about stopping the wheel in the right place as it is about moving the wheels in sync. It's also fantastic for practicing diagonals, curves and split-second timing. 

At the time of writing I'm stuck with 97 stars and can't progress beyond that. Maximum respect for the first person who gets 100 stars and l makes it to the next level, and if anyone ever completes this game with hand wheels they get bragging rights for life! 


Beach Head 2020 Steam - PC and Mac

Beach Head 2020 is a similar style game to IS Defense, with the added bonus that is available on Mac as well. The action itself is not as frantic as IS Defense, but it does come with a variety of aircraft that need shooting down. This is great fun on the wheels, and makes you feel like an anti-aircraft gunner, which is what hand wheels were originally designed for. 

There is no way of changing the keyboard bindings for you will need to switch to config 4 or 5 (see the manual) in order to access the secondary weapons. When you're in this mode you get additional cannons and heat-seeking missiles which will help you survive a lot longer. 

Once you get through the first few rounds you get mounted on a moving vehicle, which is very much like operating a remote head with no pan stabilisation (ie back-pan off ) This will really test your operating skills. 

You need to pick up health crates and ammo, but these are just dropped at random intervals rather than having the call them in. Apparently this game is also available in VR, and features multi-player options, but we have yet to try this out. 

Donut County Steam - PC and Mac

This is a similar game to Tasty Planet, in that you roam around gobbling things and growing, but there is a fun physics element to it too. 

You play a hole in the ground, which you steer around and consume things. That's about it. Don't overthink it. You sometimes have to consume things in a certain order, that's about as complex as it gets. The soundtrack is fun and the characters are amusing. This is probably the most casual game on the list. 

Galaga Wars +  Apple Arcade - Mac and iPad

This is a classic 2D scrolling shooter that sees you fly a space ship through a series of environments, shooting baddies and collecting various power ups. It’s simple mindless fun. 


Blek + Apple Arcade - Mac and iPad

One of the most unique games I’ve ever seen. Draw a simple shape, watch that shape repeat and  avoid obstacles. It’s hard to explain, even harder to play, but very addictive. 


The following games will only work if you are running Rexy Wheels version 2.0 in Joystick Mode (Configs 10-13)This new firmware, and instructions on how to make it work, are available in the downloads section. Anyone who received their wheels after April ‘23 will already have the latest firmware installed. 

House of the Dead Remake-  Steam - PC only

This classic on-rail shooter is the perfect way to enjoy Rexy Wheels, by shooting wave after wave of zombies and other monsters. It's got single player mode, and also local 2-player mode that can be played with 2 sets of Rexy Wheels, or one set vs regular controller. You can play co-operatively or competitively. Prepare to operate like a mad person, and remember that it's just for fun  - if you were to operate a camera in this haphazard style you'd probably get sacked! It's a great game for improving your reactions and cementing the muscle memory, and it prepares you for operating under pressure. Although luckily most actors don't try to eat you!. This game does seem to experience a bit of lag in joystick mode - we don't think it's caused by the Rexy Wheels but is due to the dead-band that most joysticks need to prevent drift. It's a bit annoying at first, but it's good practice for operating a head that's a bit laggy!

Vampire Survivors - Steam - PC and Mac

This fan-favourite game is good for casual gameplay with Rexy Wheels. You basically just roam around a never ending top-down 2D environment, and avoid being touched by anything. It’s starts slow but gets busy very quickly.   

Centipede Recharged - Steam - PC and Mac

This retro game was really popular on the Atari. You move around a limited arena, shooting centipedes that move down towards you, and as you shoot them the divide into more centipedes. It gets very intense very quickly. It features single player and local co-op modes, and is really fun when played with 2 people.

Dashpong - Steam - PC Only

This remake of the classic arcade game is absolutely perfect for competitive gamers. Made for local 2-4 player games, you move around on your side of the court in the x and y axes, and fire the ball into the opponents goal. It features the added twist of being able to draw a 'dash' that is like a tetris block that you can bounce across the court to hit the ball, or use to block the ball from entering your own goal. Although best played with 2 sets of Rexy wheels, you can play with 1 set vs someone with a regular controller. Be warned, whatever direction you are travelling when you draw a dash you will be accelerated along, so take you time lining up the shot before you press that button.

Last Shark Standing - Steam - PC Only

This is a fun silly game that involves catching other players with a fishin rod and yanking them out of the arena. It works okay with wheels, but the aiming is a little clunky. 


oOo-Ascension Steam - PC only

This game is the most stylish and well thought-out maze-style game on the list. It has awesome neon graphics, incredible technical levels, and an awesome electronic soundtrack. 

Each level is set on a simple sphere that rotates as you move your spaceship, meaning you actually stay in the center of the screen and the world moves around you. It's not particularly intuitive to begin with, but I assure you it is the same skill set as all forms of hand wheels operating, and definitely the most satisfying once you get it right. It is similar to Spiral Splatter in that you cannot touch the walls, but it's much more about the fluidity and rhythm. You also get chased by things, which means you can't hang about. 

As the levels get progressively harder it becomes incredibly frustrating, but you can usually start off wherever you die, meaning you can slowly work your way through the levels. However, every 10th level you have a boss level, meaning you have to get all the way through it without dying, and that's where the frustration begins. The 1st boss level probably took me 100 attempts, the 2nd boss level may have taken as many as 300 goes, and the 3rd boss level was virtually impossible. I'm currently stuck on level 4.3 and can't see myself ever getting beyond that, as most of my progress to this point was done during the great lock-down of 2020. Hats off to anyone who gets beyond this level without cheating! 


TTV2 - Steam - PC only

This is the Rexy Wheels equivalent of Flappy Bird. Run through a gauntlet of ever changing obstacles, you only objective is to survive to the edge of the screen. Then do it all again, and again and again. It’s frustrating but also very additive. 


Speed Mazing - Steam - PC only

This is a great game for kids. Two identical maps in the board , and you have to race to the finish of your map. That’s the whole premise of the game. It can get a bit frustrating at low speeds, because it needs a certain wheel speed to begin moving. But if you move fast enough this doesn’t make much difference.  


Moving Out - Steam - PC only

This is a great fun 2-player game that is all about team work. It’s all about moving furniture - but to move heavy pieces like sofas you have to co-ordinate your movement to make sure you get out the doors and into the removal truck together. There aren’t too many buttons either, which is good because it’s tricky enough, 


Overcooked 1&2 - Steam - PC and Mac

Another great game for teamwork, but this time instead of moving furniture you’re running a kitchen. This involves chopping veg, plating dishes, washing dishes and sometimes jumping over ravines or sliding over icebergs. Yes it’s silly, yes we love it. 


Twin Cores - Steam - PC only

This is a simple co-operative on- rails shooter to begin with, with quite decent graphics for a game in the genre. At later stages of the game it gets twist, whereby on player moves the spaceship and the 2nd player shoots. It’s quite a curious concept, guiding a ship with the same movement that normally does the aim control. But it is surprisingly intuitive. Unfortunately it’s only a demo so it finished quite quickly, but it’s definitely worth a try! 


Tasty Planet Forever Steam - PC and Mac

This game is all about casual gameplay. It's basically a kind open-world pac-mac, it that you guide a character from above that roams around eating things. 

You start out as a kitten, as you eat things you grow, and as you grow you can eat bigger things. Eventually you progress to eating people, cars and entire city blocks. You become different characters throughout the game, each with their own quirks. 

It's not really competitive but it is fun and addictive. It takes a bit of getting used to the idea of steering the character with wheels, but the skill set is essentially the same as regular operating. And the sound track is very lounge jazz, which is perfect for passing time
