Customer Reviews

Great core game, lacks content

Fun twist on Match 3. The playfield is a dungeon map and you can move your character around collecting keys and fighting monsters. But this feels like a prototype. No character progression, only one character, no weapons and very few skills. Doesn't even have rewards for making matches! Each game is a high score run, and once mastered, is pretty easy to accomplish unless you get a string of bad luck. Art is nice and core concept is awesome but needs so much more to make a worthwhile purchase. Swap Sword 2 please!!!

A bit tough, but deep and rewarding.

This game is easy to pick up and play but extremely challenging and incredibly deep. It's a strategy game but it's main mechanic is that of a match 3 which leads to a lot of randomness. That can be tough sometimes but it's polished, fun and addicting. Not to mention amazing art and great SFX!! ;)

Addictive Roguelike Swapper

This game is super addictive. Once you beat the game, you realize that the score chase is deep and the strategy is deeper than it first appears. You'll find yourself compulsively playing "just one more run" over and over. This is a perfect bus/train game. I love it!
