OVIVO is a mesmerizing platformer with unusual mechanics where everything is as simple as black and white. It is a metaphorical game filled with illusions and hidden messages.
In the world of OVIVO, Black and White exist in harmony. By constantly intertwining and replacing each other, they maintain balance. The main character named OVO was born of these two halves and has the ability to switch between them. OVO travels through the metaphorical world, overcoming dangers and collecting mysterious symbols. These symbols will help you unravel the story of this world, but how you interpret it is completely up to you.
■ Flow mechanics. In white, gravity points downward, in black—upward. Because momentum is preserved when transitioning from one color to another, OVO can float along their border as if being carried by a flow.
■ Fascinating art. The allegorical world of OVIVO is full of hidden images and optical illusions.
■ Design without words. There is almost no text in the game and the story is told through gameplay and visuals.
■ Meditative ambient soundtrack by Brokenkites.

Good graphic design
I love the good vector graphic art design it has. I would like more levels. This game could easily be expanded upon. Still, it is a very beautiful game.
It is art !
It is more than a "game" !
It’s not fun
It’s unfortunate to say that I regret buying this game. I’m usually open-minded in trying out games from different genre, but this one just doesn’t click with me. If I have to sum up my experience, I’d say it’s not fun. Beyond the switching from black and white mechanic, there isn’t much to do. You move around, switching and grabbing collectibles as you go, until you reach the level’s end goal. That’s it, there’s nothing more to it. There’s no excitement, no real challenge except for the occasional collectibles that can be in hard to reach places. Honestly, it felt more like a chore. While I’ve only beaten 6 out of 10 stages, I think it’s safe to assume that’s the case for the rest of the levels.
I can’t deny that there is A LOT of artistic visuals going on in the background, but having something nice to look at isn’t enough to make a game fun. Concerning the soundtrack, I was mostly indifferent to the music. A few of them were above average at times.
Don’t get me wrong, nothing about the game's description was deceiving; the game is really meant to be a mesmerizing one. I guess the developers intended to create something that’s meant to be mindlessly played. My problem is I went in expecting something more and ended up disappointed. For what it is, it’s just not meant for me.
