This game messes with your vision! After playing for even as little as 10 minutes as soon as you look away from the game everything seems to be getting father for a few minutes. Almost like an illusion but overall the game is pretty fun and addicting.

Really trippy game. You guide your ship through an ever-changing course that gets faster and with a variety of obstacles to avoid, anything from spikes to moving platforms. You really need to be on the ball in order to shoot up the leaderboards in this game.

very fun and addictive game, your objective is to avoid the obstacles in front of you to reach the end.
simple concept but it gets harder as you advance, it has great level design, great soundtrack and more than enough content to justify its price and more. so i would highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a simple yet chellenging game.

Don't avoid Avoid if you enjoy to dodge obstacles and precipices while listening to some nice tunes. On the harder difficulties its harder than a bullet hell game... just nuts.

When it hits it's stride at the right speed, the game is worth a recomendation, it just may take a few annoying attempts to get to that sweet spot. The time it can take to get to the rewarding speed of your skill and the instant dump of failure feels a little unballanced as the controls feels slightly unresponsive. Its a cheap thrill essentially, if you have friends that chase leaderboards and high scores, this is up your street - otherwise the games lasting appeal isnt that great.

Its just worthy of a recomendation, if you fit the niche criteria

PROS: Great music
Bright neon visuals
Simple to play, Difficult to master

CONS: Controls feel slightly sluggish
Takes a while to get to speed after failure
Little lasting appeal

6/10

I do reccomend it but here's my list of things I find nice and things I find that are wrong with it.
Pros
-It's a nice music game though the songs lose their taste after 10 minutes
-It challenges you
-It is a real trip, dude ♥♥♥♥ drugs this is way cheaper
-It's enjoyable for how long it lasts
-Not many levels but not too short either
-Good art design and I really like the concept

Cons
-Gets repetative at times after you've beaten it. Not much to do after you've played every single level.
-Can bore at times. Depends on the mood.
-No variation in sound track, you get sick of the songs real fast
-The AI voice can be tedious and yet sometimes annoying
-The game loses it's feel after a certain amount of time.

/h1 My personal rating 6.5-7/10 Get it during a sale.
As fun as it is it really just feels like an ios game that you could get for free. So I'd just spend a dollar on it and leave it at that.

fun little game and definatly worth the small price. challenging levels that will make you want to keep retrying and a endless mode to see how far you can get. if you've got a bit of spare change, pick this game up

Fun game. The music is very fitting for the levels, and you just want to keep playing it...
If you like games like Super Hexagon, try this.

Avoid is very addicting! the music, levels colour and diffrences between the levels keep me comming back once and awhile to try and beat that last level, but be warned the game is tough.

Avoid is one of those games where if you play it for too long you may get frustrated and begin to preform less and less, atleast thats what I find when playing this game. My tip to you if you purchase this wonderful game: take breaks every once and awhile, stairing into those tunnels for too long will make you go cross-eyed.

My personal reccomendation: buy it if you love a challenge.

While Avoid Sensory Overload is another mobile title to make the leap to PC it doesn't feel like a cheap cash-in. The gameplay is addictive and on higher difficulty levels the game can provide quite a challenge. The randomly generated levels in endless mode also provide plenty of longevity, especially for the price. If you are looking for a pure arcade experience where you can test your reflexes while listening to some nice tunes then you won't want to avoid this game.

Haven't played much, but i can already say- i like this game! Check your reflexes:) What i didnt like is music. Well, maybe i just dont like those genres. Also prepare your eyes for hurting, game is too bright.

Surprisingly fun old school arcade style game play. Controller support is good and feels nice and accurate. It would be better if you could select your own music to play. Still, for the ~$1 sale price I paid, this game was a bargain.

AVOID is a simple game. Press left and right to dodge, bullets, blocks and holes. Seems simple enough. The speed increases and things get a lot harder. The game does a good job of trying to overload your senses with crazy colors lights. There is some excellent trance/techno music. In a way, it is a more simplistic version of REZ. For a couple bucks you can frustrate yourself with this game as you try and achieve a higher score. Not a bad game. If you need a good simple game to waste some time in your day, I would play this.
