Is It Any Good?

PIVVOT is not a game for the faint-hearted. It's hard, and it gets harder the longer you play. It requires expert timing and doesn't forgive even the slightest error. Many people will get frustrated and quit. However, those who stick with it will find a game that's hypnotic.

Moving the rotating ball left, right, up, and down -- and not always moving the same direction along the path -- to avoid obstacles seems easy, but it's actually quite nerve-racking. The game ensures you never get comfortable in a rhythm. Still, it makes you want to try again, and, with a clever soundtrack and minimalist art design, it doesn't overwhelm players. It's a tough game to love, but, once it clicks, you might find yourself engrossed.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
