Pivot XL is the second of three games in my minimalist arcade series that share aesthetics while having different control and game play. It is an addictive 'just-one-more-round' score chaser, perfect for playing while waiting in queue for another game.

About This Game


Pivot your character within the screens borders as you barely avoid obstacles, collect points, and smash helpful power-ups. Try to survive as long as you can! The second in my series of three minimalist arcade games.



Simply pressing the pivot button allows you to begin spinning in the flipped direction. Easy one button control with a Gamepad/Controller, Keyboard, or mouse.



  • Easy to learn, simple controls on keyboard, controller or mouse
  • An endless, fast paced and challenging arcade style game play that constantly gets harder
  • Unlock a handful of unique cosmetic skins for your player, including ones from other Nickervision Studios games
  • 'Close Call' system that awards extra points for close calls with obstacles.
  • Steam Achievements, Leader board, and Trading cards (coming soon)! (with emoticons & profile wallpapers)
  • Steam Cloud Support
  • Perfect for playing a round while in Queue for another game :)
  • The in game audio/SFX was provided by my mouth making noises into a crumby consumer mic and some royalty free SFX from FreeSFX.
  • In game song is meHiLove's - "All Night Long"


Pivot XL is the second of three games in my minimalist arcade series that share aesthetics while having different control and game play. This is an 'XL' version of my mobile game 'Pivot'. I have added/changed a variety of things to make it more suitable for the Steam platform and improved a lot of code and features based on knowledge gained since I originally made it. I have been learning to make games by making games and love creating small-yet-solid arcade games with simple mechanics. Please expect 'Pivot XL' to be a small, re-playable, arcade score-chaser game where the only basic goals are to constantly beat your previous score and unlock a handful of cosmetic skins for the character. I greatly appreciate feedback and will do my best to ensure support for my games. Please contact me through Twitter, My Website, or the forums if you encounter something wrong with the game, something misleading on the store page, or you just want to say hello.

Thank you for taking a moment to read this; I really hope you enjoy playing my game.

System Requirements

Windows
Mac OS X
SteamOS + Linux
    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows 7 (possibly xp as well, no promises)
    • Processor: Dual Core+
    • Memory: 2 GB RAM
    • Graphics: 512MB+
    • Storage: 500 MB available space
    • Additional Notes: It's possible Pivot XL uses less resources than that weird old Windows screensaver with the flying winged toasters. Man, I should really read about that, what the heck was that all about?
    Recommended:
    • OS: Windows 10
    • Processor: I bet if they made a 5 core processor it would be really weird, but could run this game well.
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: GeForce GTX 1070 (Pivot XL has one less effect than Bing Bong XL, so you don't need all that 1080 power anymore)
    • Storage: 502 MB available space
    • Sound Card: Will I hit my second wind on writing (clever?!) sound card details? There's only one way to know... --> Turn to page 37 if you want to know. --> Turn to page 52 if you think this bit went terribly.
    • Additional Notes: The universe is a cruel uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning, it's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually you'll be dead.
    Minimum:
    • OS: OSX 10.5+
