OVIVO is a metaphoric game filled with illusions and hidden messages. In the world of OVIVO Black and White exist in harmony. Constantly intertwining and replacing each other they maintain balance. The main character named OVO created from these two halves of the world and it has the ability to switch between them. OVO travels through the metaphoric world, overcomes various dangers and collects mysterious symbols. These symbols help you to unravel the story of this world but how you interpret it is completely up to you.
Ovivo is a small but fine indie skill game that differs from the usual jump'n'run scheme. The game mechanics is actually relatively simple: the player can only move left and right and change the color at the push of a button, whereby one changes...
from a white to a black area and vice versa. Gravity is reversed so that gradients and protrusions can be overcome. Some of you may still know the game concept from the Flashgame 'Shift'. br>
Without big tutorials you quickly get used to the controls and get along in the minimalistic but beautiful game world, which is located somewhere between tasteful tattoos and hypnotizing mandalas. But even if you have learned the controls after a few minutes, the game always finds new ways to challenge the player in later levels. Also the lack of life displays, minimaps, scores or the like is quite unusual, but allows to concentrate completely on the game world. Since you have an infinite number of attempts and regularly pass a (invisible) reset point, there is never any real frustration. Together with the varied but harmonious soundtrack, the Ovivo is a very relaxing game. There is no story, there is never really a game target, so basically you just walk through the levels. In each level, however, in addition to the exit, there are three collectable symbols and a series of points that are rarely really hidden, but often require a little skill and thought. This means that collectors will also benefit from the game and can look forward to 31 achievements. They also have my only criticism of the game: at least the English translation has some inconsistencies like 'it's' instead of 'its' or vice versa. But that is of little importance. After not quite three hours I was completely done with Ovivo. The regular price may be a little low, but if you're looking for a relaxed, artistically outstanding game for in between, you're welcome to take a discount. The screenshots don't promise too much.
