The variety of different heist locations keeps your mind engaged so you don’t fall into monotonous patterns of playing the same level over and over again. It also keeps the game fun and interesting turn after turn, rather than getting repetitive. The Swindle is a wonderful game with a lot of character and enough challenge to keep you engaged for 100 heists and more.
When it comes down to it, The Swindle is the perfect kind of game for the Nintendo Switch. It never would have found a home in my PC library but I find myself picking up and playing it on the Switch quite frequently. It's the exact kind of platformer that can thrive in the Switch ecosystem: easy to understand mechanics, difficult to beat in its entirety, but engaging gameplay that keeps you coming back out of pure enjoyment for every level played.
It’s a huge shame that The Swindle misses the mark so hard on its execution. The tools, upgrades, and challenges are all really fun to experiment with. There’s a great game somewhere within the mess, but you’ll probably stop having fun way before you manage to pull off the heist of a lifetime.
