A free minigame for the Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit has appeared to download on the game's News Channel. Called 'Alien Bopping', it's a simple whack-a-mole game challenging you to bash as many aliens on the head as you possibly can in 60 seconds.

Rather than appearing on the list of 64 minigames in the VR Plaza, this one is accessible from the Toy-Con Garage - you'll have to go there and save it manually to your own list if you want to keep it (or adapt it yourself).

Simple, see?

To download the game yourself, simply head into your Switch's news channel list, find the Labo VR Channel containing the 'Alien Bopping' post, scroll to the bottom and click the link (with the cart inserted, of course). The game will fire up as usual but if you head to the Toy-Con Garage on the blue 'Discover' page, you'll find the above data loaded. From there you can press play to try the game and do with it as you will.

Releasing minigames in this manner is a nice way to lead players into the Toy-Con Garage area of the game and show just how comprehensive it is. As you can see from the spaghetti junction of nodes and connections in the screen shot above, even something as simple as this looks pretty complicated, but the suite of options available to create your own games is very impressive. As we said in our review, it's definitely worth checking out if you're even the tiniest bit interested in game design.
