About

The Swapper is a classical platform game with several elements of Metroidvania focused on solving puzzles. The game follows a female astronaut stranded on the abandoned space research station in a science-fictional universe. Completing the game players will be able to learn more about the fate of researches and to restore the sequence of events held aboard the station. Players assume the role of the protagonist, as she tries to clarify the mystery of a unique item, which allows her to clone herself and to transfer the mind to the clone. Therefore, the cloning ability is a basic game mechanic that helps the player to solve puzzles and complete levels. The gameplay features traditional side-scrolling platformers’ elements: players control the 2D action from the third-person perspective. In the course of the completion, players are going to face obstacles of varying degrees of complexity ranging from simple barriers (however inaccessible for clones) to higher platforms or even gravity shutdowns.

Beautiful Puzzle game, but played quite briskly with 3-5 Hours. The Puzzles are largely not too heavy, but for all the Problems guides;)---nice puzzlegame, but you can beat it in 3-5 hours. The quests are most not very hard, but there's always a guide for the really hard ones;)

You must have zoked the Game, I almost played through on one Piece. The Puzzles are super horny and rise in Difficulty. The Element of "Swapper" comes Hammer and reminds me a lot of Lemmings. Move with the Swappers over the Map also brings total Fun. As mentioned ABOVE, you have MUST. 11/10 Points!!!

A fantastic puzzle game with so many impressive Scenes. The Atmosphere of this Game alone keeps you thinking about playing it ready. The Tasks are still quite simple at the Beginning and you will be introduced super to the Mechanics of the Game. The Puzzles are increasing in Difficulty, but never so much that you want to give up because of the consideration. Recommended For every Thinker and Tinkerer! :)

In My Opinion, the best Indie Game of 2013. The puzzle puzzles in the Game are all very good and almost everyone is solvable After a pleasant Cooling-off period (not too long, not too short). There may be 2-3 Exceptions where you need to think longer or Consult the Internet. In addition to the good Puzzle design comes a very cool Art style, which comes about by the fact that all Models in the Game are made of Clay. [ www.penny-arcade.com ] The Game has a very high Graphic Quality and Plasticity without having CGI 3D Models. This Also frees itself from the Problem I see In most Indie games: "We are Indie, we can only Pixel Graphics that look the same almost anywhere." The (4!) Developers of the Game have really demonstrated Creativity here and shown that even a small Studio can achieve more than just 0815 Pixel Graphics. The Sci-Fi Atmosphere is rounded off by the matching and beautiful Soundtrack [store.carlocastellano.cc]. That alone would be enough, but there is a Story to go. This is initially guided by simple Questions: Am I Here alone? Where are the others? As the Game progressed, the "Swapping" Of the Mind into another Body is questioned. Am I still me? What happens to me and what happens to my Clones? All in All, a perfect, somewhat gloomy Puzzle game that can score on everything and therefore, especially for the very fair Price, is an absolute Recommendation. I would recommend you to buy the Game with the Soundtrack Directly on the Page of Facepalmgames [ facepalmgames.com ]. It's worth it.
Atmospheric game with unique mechanics and reasonably challenging puzzles. Interesting plot (and ending).
