The Vortex is an orb in Tilt to Live that creates a black hole that will suck in dots. It requires 70 award points to unlock. When the orb is hit, it will count down from 3, and will bounce around the arena if pushed. After the countdown, the vortex will appear, sucking in dots and orbs. The player will be pulled towards it, but will not be sucked inside. The background music will also be altered, becoming quieter with a rushing sound. Upon use, this orb awards 10 points.
