“You might not be able to stay alive much longer than a minute, but those minutes quickly add up to hours of bleary eyed gameplay.”

Pivvot is a very fun game where you can test your reflexes and precision. Sometimes lags, but overall, very fun.

9/10

I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS.

If you are looking for a good pass-time game, then you already found one. Pivvot is one of my main pass-time games lately because it is just so simple and the music are so relaxing. Bonus it only cost so little amount in your wallet so I already recommend this game because it is just freakin' good for a pass time game category.

To say that Pivvot is hard is an understatement. It is literally impossible to get a good score, nuff said.

A fun and challenging fast paced indie game. Basically your ball runs along a rail and you either use left or right clicks to rotate your ball in order to dodge incoming obstacles. You only get a small window of opportunity to look at the obstacle ahead and decide which way you need to rotate which is very fun and keeps you on the edge of your seat, not to mention as you get further into a level the obstacles always change so you can never get used to dodging just one type of obstacle. The game has a decent amount of levels and an absolutely amazing soundtrack. If you're into games like oO, super hexagon and the impossible game then you're going to love this. Great game to pick up and add to your indie collection.

Neat little distraction.

I would recommed it if it were only Voyage and Expert Voyage modes, but strangely, the additional modes detract from the experience. In the random modes, there are too many instances where it's not possible for you to either move with the minor adjustment necessary, and if you lower the sensitivity, you aren't fast enough. It feels like the game decides whether you make it or don't, and that really sucks the fun out of it. Sadly, also takes away the feeling of accomplishment that the other modes have instilled, because you then realize it wasn't your reaction time that achived victory: it was designed to flow properly.

Pivvoting is to move in a controlled point. So theres two parts imagine a stick, one side is nailed into the ground unable to move, the other side is able to move freely but only is a controlled manner to the nailed in part. So imagine a circle
______
/ \
| | <---- Nailed end of the stick
\______ /
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |
|__| <--- Free end of the stick
So the free end of the stick will only be able to move left or right on a fixed angle so lets say its 180 degrees, So the stick will only be able to move like this...
______
/ \___________________________________
| |___________________________________|
\______/
So it would only be allowed to move this way or the other way. it would not be able to move up and down as in it goes from 180 degress to 0 or 90 degrees.

✓ You need only left + right buttons
✓ Multiple procedurally generated levels
✓ Different stages in a level
✓ Nice bright colors
✓ Awesome soundtrack

Sounds familiar, huh? Now even better:

✓ Multiple endless modes
✓ LOCAL CO-OP for every mode
✓ Death counter

TL;DR Super Hexagon with local co-op and more awesome stuff.

Feels a lot like Super Hexagon.
  • Frantic
  • The same controls (just rotation with 2 buttons)
  • The same league of difficulty (achievements are probably more difficult)
  • Levels are random, but consist of predefined elements
  • Completion based on time
  • Has endless modes
  • Simplistic, interesting graphics
  • Amazing soundtrack
This game, however, has a kind of a practice mode that can be enjoyed by almost everyone. It is slower and has checkpoints.
What saddens me, though, is there are only 2 sets of obstacles. There are some additional game modes that reuse those sets, and other modes that are just random, luck-based and lame.

Pivvot is a fantastic strategic avoidance game in the likes of Super Hexagon or Boson-X.

It's easy to get sucked into the fantastic music and smooth gameplay, as you spin and dodge various obstacles. It also holds numerous ways of playing it, so it's balanced for all levels of expertise. It's one of those games that you'll be spending hours upong hours playing, without noticing so much time has passed.

I wrote a review on the mobile version a while ago (http://www.80pgaming.com/content/2013/10/30/pivvot-review) and this version is even better with the addition of Looper mode, the Random Endless modes and local multiplayer. It's accessible, difficult to master and an all-around good time. I recommend getting the soundtrack too; the music is absolutely amazing.

Buy a copy, get your friends to buy copies, then try to beat their scores. Good times had by all.

+ Easy to learn, difficult to master
+ Good graphics
+ Checkpoints
+ Plenty of ways to keep you on your toes

- How long before it becomes boring, repetitive or frustrating?
- Besides skills you also need luck because the objects appear in random order
- Camera can be confusing/disorienting

Fun game, similar in style to Super Haxagon, although the gameplay is a bit different. If you enjoy games like Super hexagon, I'd recommend this to you.

That game can annoy you a little but it's not like you will rage.
I never thought that the offline-multiplayer-modus (playing with friends or siblings on 1 computer) can be that much fun :D. You can revive your mate if he "dies" and the other way around.

I'd recommend it if you want to play a game
- for offline-multiplayer fun and
- for a game you can play from time to time or while waiting for something,.. (no story parts, no addiction in my eyes)

Pivvot makes me cry the kind of tears only Super Hexagon can pull out of me. The concept seems simple enough until you get to the looper mode, then you repeat it until you realise that you're crouching in your computer chair, slowly rocking yourself into a fetal position.

11/10, would recommend. Catchy music, addictive gameplay.

This is a great little game with a very simple premise, you rotate a little circle to avoid obstacles. It all sounds nice and straightforward and indeed the first voyage breaks you in gently with simple obstacles to build up your confidence.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

By the time you reach the expert voyage you will have worked out 3 things.

1) Digital input requires very precise timing.
2) The developers hate you (I can only assume a traumatic incident in a geometry class).
3) You definitely aren't coming back to beat that high score...at least not for the next half hour.

The game is a lot of fun when you hit the zone but be prepared for frustration along the way.
