  • Summary: The Swapper is a very interesting title as an indie game generally, while it has one of the smartest concepts in the puzzle platformer genre. Its length and the lack of more than one gameplay ideas has left us wanting more, as they do not justify the title's price. On the other hand it's got excellent atmosphere, one of the best concepts about clones/soul and is so consistent throughout all of its aspects that makes the better AAA games.

  • Summary: Originally released on PC The Swapper is a puzzle platformer in which the player can create up to four clones of themselves in order to collect orbs, that can in turn be used to open up new areas. These orbs are contained within their own separate rooms, each of which requires the player to solve a puzzle.

  • Summary: Mood of this game swallow me whole and puzzles that I encounter burned my brain. In other words, I really enjoyed time that I spend at Theseus station.

  • Summary: The swapper is a traditional side scrolling sci-fi puzzler, the graphics are not mind blowing, but there not meant to be, but they are truly artistic and unique. You control a device called "the swapper" which produces copies of yourself in which you use to help solve puzzles and other tasks. the amount of mystery surrounding this game is overwhelming, the atmosphere is so compelling too. Truly unique game, loving it.

  • Summary: There have been some amazing games over the past few months with indie titles making the cream. This 'The Swapper' is one of those such titles. It overloads the atmosphere and at the same time is a calming experience. The puzzles are entertaining, graphics excellent, controls simple, music (the best feature) is simply stunning. Well worth buying and grab it on Steam now as it's 25% off!!!

  • Summary: Could this game have been any better? I doubt it. Well written, great gfx and sounds, good rythm, everything fits nicely together. The mechanics are fresh and even though some riddles make you think a while and try out a few things, they are all fair and can be logically solved. Great job, one of this years highlights!

  • Summary: I don't understand why this game has such a ridiculously high review. It's a mildly entertaining puzzle game, different than, but not as fun as Portal in my opinion. Not worth ten dollars. A mediocre score for a mediocre game.

  • Summary: Beautiful and astonishing puzzle. Every detail contributes to the atmosphere of loneliness and cold darkness of a space station. Puzzles are not very difficult, but challenging enough to get satisfaction. The music is marvellous also. Though the narrative is not unique we understand most of the events by reading logs the plot is very interesting, with allusions to Solaris and Moon. Wish there were more games like this and hope to see more games from this studio.

  • Summary: This game is amazing! Since braid I've been looking for a good indie puzzle game, and this must have been the best one yet (I'm not comparing it to braid though, they're both amazing but in their own ways)! The art style is amazing and the story really sucks you in and makes you want to explore deeper and deeper into the game (Unlike other games in which the exploring gets boring and it gets to the point where you just play to finish the game).

  • Summary: Brilliant combination of puzzles and high concept science fiction. It engages the same part of your brain as Portal 2 using completely different mechanics. When you do solve a puzzle, it's always a great payoff and you can't wait for the next one. The story that unfurls is compelling stuff about consciousness and self that will make you think. The Swapper is a one-game refutation to anyone who says video games are just mindless violence.
