Pivvot – A Game of Skill and Quick Reflexes (iOS App Review)

pivvot_iconIf you’re finding mobile games to be a bit too easy these days, why not give Pivvot a try? Pivvot is all about quick reflexes and strategic avoidance as you navigate a treacherous path. Basically what you do is control a sphere that must travel along a set path. The only thing you can do with is is rotate is around a central axis point in order to keep the sphere from colliding with obstacles scattered along the path. It might sound easy enough, but trust me, it’s not.

The main objective of the game is to avoid obstacles. You do this by rotating the ball around the path it’s traveling on and hope that you don’t hit anything. You tap on either side of the screen to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. The controls do make it a bit harder to be precise, but that’s part of what can make the game so hectic and fun.

Graphically, the game makes use of minimalism with all objects being very flat and using mainly all solid colors. This means the gameplay takes top honors here with very little to distract you. Although, the audio soundtrack in this game is killer and deserves a good listen while the game is paused.

Overall, Pivvot is a fairly unique game that is a great for honing your hand-eye coordination. It’s a fast paced game that’s very challenging with a really awesome soundtrack. If you’re up to the challenge, I definitely suggest picking this game up. It’s a game the whole family can enjoy.
