Ovivo is an in­ven­tive lit­tle plat­form game that has drawn raves since hit­ting IOS. What makes it so dis­tinc­tive? Aside from the min­i­mal, monochro­matic aes­thetic, Ovivo’s big­gest hook is the abil­ity to shift a lit­tle orb be­tween the white and black ar­eas of each level while grav­ity flows down­wards in white and up­wards in black. The point of all this is to make your way across un­even and of­ten oddly-shaped ter­rain, and you can only do so by swap­ping the ball be­tween the black and white ar­eas. And there’s more to it than that: You may also need to use these shifts to build mo­men­tum for over­com­ing larger gaps or ob­sta­cles, and some lev­els even find you es­cap­ing large pur­suers. It’s pretty mes­mer­iz­ing stuff.
