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.

Great gameplay, fantastic artwork! Im into these kinds of games, but have never come across one like this. Was very impressed with the creativity behind this game. Would love to see a sequel or whatever other games your team might develop in the future!
This game is lots of fun, and it has really good art too.
We love this game because you can always try again there are a lot of levels and its fun and we would totally recommend this game! Sincerely, HarrisReviews.
It has OVIVO bacteria and plankton.
We love the good vector graphic art design it has. We would like more levels. This game could easily be expanded upon. Still, it is a very beautiful game.
We love the silhouette look to the game and the controls are awesome. If we had to compare it to something idk what it would be maybe fractured souls mixed with monument valley its a really immersive game it sort of draws you in. It grasps modern art and gaming its one of a instant classics. We suggest everyone buy this game. With so many other touch failures out there this isnt one of them. We would like to thank the developers and request them to make more software Sincerely….M.A.P.
OVIVO is a gem of a game. It is built on a simple idea of the game piece being able to transcend planes, with gravity flipping as it does so. Each level is a journey through a landscape of an abstract obstacle course, which when completed, is revealed to be an elaborate artistic maze. Each level reveals something new – obstacles to overcome, creatures or plants that will disrupt your journey. All of the levels are extremely detailed and the way the game piece interacts with its environment is elegantly thought out and simple… Floating on flower buds, bubbling and bouncing off other elements, etc. We dont know why this game is not an App Store Editors Choice. It well deserves such distinction.
We wish we could play it more, but it burns through 20% of our battery in 5 minutes! Maybe its not throttled to 60fps?
Its unfortunate to say that we regret buying this game. Im usually open-minded in trying out games from different genre, but this one just doesnt click with us. If we have to sum up our experience, Id say its not fun. Beyond the switching from black and white mechanic, there isnt much to do. You move around, switching and grabbing collectibles as you go, until you reach the levels end goal. Thats it, theres nothing more to it. Theres 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 we’ve only beaten 6 out of 10 stages, we think its safe to assume thats the case for the rest of the levels. We cant deny that there is A LOT of artistic visuals going on in the background, but having something nice to look at isnt enough to make a game fun. Concerning the soundtrack, we were mostly indifferent to the music. A few of them were above average at times. Dont get us wrong, nothing about the game’s description was deceiving; the game is really meant to be a mesmerizing one. We guess the developers intended to create something thats meant to be mindlessly played. Our problem is we went in expecting something more and ended up disappointed. For what it is, its just not meant for us.
This game is an artistic masterpiece with many cultural Easter eggs, such as the hands of Adam and God intertwining. We recommend this game for anyone who wants a fun adventure and truly appreciates art. We also enjoyed how it mixed the thrill of a platform with the intensity of a puzzler and finishes with a minimalist design in the most beautiful manner possible.
What an incredible balance of graphics, physics, complexity and difficulty! Rides the edge of the blade along all axis and is a joy to play. Its just….. Right. Well done! Now… Go build something completely different yet the same!
Ovivo is very special. Its one of those gems that pop up on the App Store all too infrequently. Unique in its gameplay whereby the player switches from black to white to move the little sphere, Ovo, to solve puzzles. Ovivo is artsy without being pretentious and its very artistic nature is breathtaking! What a delightful game with its attention to detail and the very smooth gameplay. We hope to see much more of this type of minimalist puzzle/platformer from this developer. Very unique and such a joy to play!
Truly a simple and beautiful game. We love the graphics and how the game engages you to continue playing.
We’re loving this game. It’s visually interesting and unusual gameplay for being such a simple concept.
We play a ton of puzzle and platform er games and every once in a while one stands out. OVIVO is one of those games. Its minimalistic but the game does that well so you that the minimalism makes the game more engaging. No ads, nothing but a cool experience, and it gets challenging too. We’ve only used the joystick control so far but it also offers tilt and button controls. Give it a try if you like interesting platformers, it will feel new and fresh.
This game is beautiful, we love the minimalistic design and the music. There is no text anywhere in the game and art comes into the being everything from the interface to the landscape.
Its art is beautiful its game play is amazing get this game!
Awesome game. Immersive and unique. We only hope they release a continuation. Ovivo II, III, IV? Just great.
This game is awesome! Very simple basic mechanics and controls combined with tons of interesting in-game objects and map features. Youll never get bored. Plus graphics is gorgeous!
Quite an unusual game, fantastic visual design! It feels like half a post modern art installation and half a puzzle-platformer. Although the core gameplay mechanic is very simple(you switch between two colors) they’ve managed to build surprisingly rich set of different gameplay elements with it. Art design is definitely something. The amount of hidden references and allusions is just mind blowing and we definitely haven’t spotted all of them. Special praise for the soundtrack, it goes perfectly with both the general feel of the game and specifics of each level. There are definitely a few rough edges like uneven difficulty of levels: some places just felt unproportionally hard even to the point of frustration and our fingers started to hurt quite a bit(although we’re not very good with platformers tbh). We really liked the way it played at the beginning when everything was easy and playing it felt like going through a smooth flow especially with the kind of music they have there – this soft and chill electronics. Really liked it.. Until we started dying 10 times in a row. Lol. Buut at the end it worth it. And we felt like the duration is perfect: takes slightly more that 2 hours to finish. Enough to be a complete experience and not too long to get bored. Overall definitely highly recommend to try it out.
Love the idea of a B&W game that plays with scale. Gives multiple options for control which is nice.
Folks, the game is pretty cool! Its not the usual iphone game, which forces you to play hours and hours and waste all your money. This one, in the other hand, is short, but swift and fresh. It doesnt take, but gives. Play with headphones on!!
Much better than we anticipated Beautiful and fun to play.
Unfortunately we just dont care enough to harness the mechanics to make the little ball rock and roll. Should be a free game. Not worth any price.
The GUI is really confusing, there are zero anaimtions that sgow you what’s going on. It doesn’t save your game data. At all. Resets controlls to the useless touch option that makes thegame impossible go play every level Also juat a really boring badly planned game. We would have expected a prosedurally generated mode, but nope, programmers to stupid and cheap to do that, instead the game just puts you in a level with no explanation.
