Ah.. so this is basically a minimalist arcade game reminiscent of a runner game. I like it.

EDIT: er... i watched the first 4 minutes of the video... Is it the same soundtrack in an infinite loop? Coz that'd be weak.

Forgot about this. After Super Hexagon and Impossible Road, this seems kind of...tame, I guess? But that's just my impressions from the videos

Any more impressions of the later levels? How difficult does the game get?

Hey guys, dev here!

Check out this "let's play" video by bisnap. It gives a pretty good overview of all the modes! There's a lot of variety in music and style throughout the game, and it definitely gets very hard. http://youtu.be/1zx6aXAxdU0

Ha, nice. Guy could barely last two seconds on Berserk, that's a good sign. Don't want to seem cynical but how exactly does Pivvot differentiate from a game like Super Hexagon? The many modes is definitely the main aspect I see.

Also, that video showed PC gameplay. Is there a demo online? Would love to play before buying. I enjoy these kinds of games but 2.99 is kind of steep for me right now and I'm interested in some other games as well
