Facepalm Games have created something special with The Swapper, with Cruve Studios helping to bring the game to PlayStation. The unique cloning abilities of the mysterious Swapper device pave the way for some challenging puzzle designs and a gripping story, that sci-fi fans will no doubt love. However, you can’t help but feel that it’s all over far too soon.

So overall, I would say 95% of this game is pure excellence. I had an absolutely fantastic time playing it and it was surprisingly long (I thought I could finish it in one sitting, but it actually took me two full nights of playing). It’s just a shame that one teeny tiny detail took my impression of it from great down to good. It’s still well worth playing even with the frustration, but without that minor detail it could have been one of the best.

This is a well-designed experience that has the potential to win over non-puzzler fans. Its simple mechanics and gradual difficulty curve allow players to never feel overwhelmed, making it perfect for puzzle veterans and rookies alike. ...The Swapper would stand on its own as a well-designed puzzler, but its excellent narrative and understated sense of terror make it an experience to remember.
