Switch ‘N’ Shoot on Nintendo Switch. Calling all pilots: Earth is under alien attack! Your assistance is required! No experience necessary.
Piloting an advanced starfighter with just one button is simple: you switch, you shoot. Every shot fired changes your direction, and mastering this is the key to becoming a legend among the stars. Timing is everything!
Don’t underestimate its simplicity; this game tests your reflexes like no other! And while your ship might become stardust in a matter of seconds, you can instantly jump back in for “just one more go”.
A love letter to arcade classics with crunchy pixel art, a chiptune soundtrack, authentic cabinet artwork and compulsive gameplay. Only now you don’t need a stack of coins to stand a chance at getting a High Score.
Unlock 64 palettes that completely change the look of everything in the game. Choose from 8-bit favourites or create your own!
At the touch of a button, your screen rotates into portrait mode (a.k.a. TATE Mode) for a truly authentic arcade experience. The game supports a wide range of controller setups so how you play is up to you.
What makes this game unique is the controls. Instead of using the bevvy of buttons on the Switch, you just have one fire button. This is a great idea and makes it different than other games. When you shoot, you move at the same time.
As you shoot enemies, you collect upgrades for your weapon. Collect enough and you will move to the next level. The start of the game is the hardest part, this is due to you having terrible weapons and a low level. I think I died the most on the first level.
This game did get boring after a couple of hours. There isn’t much replayability to it. The same look and same levels didn’t help, with the overall colour being bland.
Overall, Switch ‘N’ Shoot feels like a smartphone game. Something to play while your wife shops for clothes, it doesn’t have the scope or look to keep anyone’s attention for longer than an hour. The one control gimmick gets old pretty quickly.
