Description

Pivot is a puzzle platforming game where the goal is to collect all 49 treasure chests spread out across rooms in a 7 by 7 grid.

The game plays like a normal platform game, you can move left and right with the arrow keys and press X to jump. The main gameplay feature is that you can rotate the entire world when standing in any corner. Rotating the world effectively changes the gravity, and this allows the player to reach certain platforms in the maze. Consequently this allows the player you to collect all the gold. The player can only pick up a chest when you are correctly aligned with it. For example he can't pick up a chest when it's hanging upside down (relative to the hero).

Each gold chest doubles as a save point, players can continue the game at a later time from the last starting at the last chest they picked up. Navigating through the maze can be disorientating because maze is constantly rotating, especially since there is no map.

Pivot features pixelated graphics, chiptune music and 8-bit sound effects. There are some similarities with Fez in visual style and gameplay.
