Show And Teleport: S.W.A.P.

By Adam Smith on September 29th, 2014.

S.W.A.P. is a competitive multiplayer game with the structure and style of an arena-based first-person shooter. It supports up to eight players, split into two teams, and has a novel virus-based approach to capture the flag dynamics. The game is free, has a level editor and is available now. What else…?

There are no guns. It’s a first-person shooter without any shooting, which means it’s not really a first-person shooter at all. Instead, as the title suggests, players have a ‘swapping’ ability, which allows them to exchange locations with their opponents. Tactical teamplay and fast-paced farce.

Dancing the diversity dance with this week's second FPS! Who said Freeware Garden doesn't do first person arena things?

You may have not noticed it, but I try to keep the Freeware Garden as varied as possible.

The New Switcharoo: SWAP

By Adam Smith on July 20th, 2012.

Just when I think I’ve seen everything the day has to offer, a first-person puzzle game sidles into view, its levels resembling a series of tests. Perhaps there will be a novel method of interacting with the environment? Yes, there is! The clue is in the title, SWAP, for the player has the ability to take a thing and replace it with another thing that is somewhere else. One day there will be a game called WALK in which the player has technologically advanced boots that allow ambulation in any direction and are voiced by Morgan Freeman. SWAP reminds me of Q.U.B.E., superficially at least, and is available now for a penny short of seven pounds. There’s a trailer below.
