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.

Thrilling little game.

The only controls are left and right, you control a ball attached to another ball and you have to miss obstacles as they come at you in all different shapes and sizes.

Loads of different settings. I especially like loopy mode where you have to do as many 360 degrees loops as you can.

You will die loads and loads and loads but because there is an immediate restart it's much less irritating like it should be and is in many other games!

Bought on special offer and glad I did, might even shoot for the achivements.

Great game to destress and burn a few hours, anything that takes my mind off my life :D

Sensitivity kind of ruins the game. I'm using a mouse, not left and right keys on the keyboard, why can't i just rotate my mouse? It's clear the game was designed for a TOUCHPAD PHONE. UGG.

Fun, challenging, made me want to write a review about it!

7.2/10

Weird arcade / puzzle game. Great music and sort of difficult. Would buy if it's on sale.

✓ 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.

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.

One word - AMAZING! I just played the first part of the game, and I already feel it's worth the money, and not to mention time. Gameplay is simple (just move right and left), but cunningly difficult at the same time. There are a ton of obstacles, and the first mode introduces them to you in a really good fashion.

Add to the fact the game has a great audiovisual design. Backgrounds switch color well, and it just looks good on the eyes. Soundtrack is also quality stuff, alternating with the mood of the game.

I've really just played for 15 mins or so yet, but consider that within this short period of time I can say with confidence Pivvot is a great game. Especially for twitch gamers and those who love hardcore stuff in general. Reminds me a bit of Super Hexagon here, but with infinitely tighter controls and a more pleasing visual aesthetic.

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

[Rating: 73/100]

Pivvot is a really great iOS and Android game that has been ported to Steam. The game strategic avoidance game is easy to control with keyboard or mouse. New obstacles are introduced at regular intervals. The soundtrack is awesome and the game gets pretty hard later on. Easily worth it.

Used to have it on my cellphone, decided to get it on Steam for more comfortable controls.
Then I "cleared" everything up to Berserk game mode.
And now I feel great, knowing I once survived 52s in there. Damn, this game.

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.

If you like this kind of indie games, where you just need to do one single action, Pivvot is made for you.

Once you learn how each form works, it's a bit easier to get a good score. But still, the game will go faster and faster so you'll end up dying. It's so easy to restart that you'll restart and try to beat your score again. So addictive!! You won't quit the game until you have a good score, trust me :D

I really like the endless mode, as well as Berserk and Looper. But damn, Berserk is so damn hard.
