“...when I say this game gets really hard really fast. It doesn’t bullshit you and that’s nice. If physics based racers interest you, then you’ll wanna check out Swipecart!”
Indie Juice

“...instantly likeable with a smart pixelated look and kicking soundtrack.Swipecart is one of those deceptively simple games that gets under your skin with the old ‘one more go’ factor.”
Super Game Droid

“Swipecart is likeable as soon as it loads. With a very cool retro synthy heavy metal backing track and an appallingly hilarious sense of humour, it’s impossible not to smile.”

Nice game for a 1$ on an iPhone. But not for PC with a 5$ price tag.
Got this game from voting for it in greenlight, the game is simple and nice but repeatative and boaring after few minutes.
The game is not optimized for computer, and moving the mouse around is annoying, I can imagine this kind on gameplay on touch, but for the PC? with mouse? Hell not.
The game is good, but it was released for the wrong platform.
Play this on your smartphone.

WARNING: Swipecart used the "free code if you vote" system on greenlight.

This game is not correctly set-up for PC, everything is HUGE on the screen, creating your own levels is a chore, and controls are trippy as hell (you have to move your mouse back and forth on the screen to move).

I'd give it a 2.5/5, this is not a PC game, I'd recommend it for tablet users. Steam workshop support will not change my mind, it already has the worst editor ever.

Good (I guess) for a smartphone, bad for a PC. Everything is HUGE on your screen, as a result of not giving it a minute of work on redesigning it for a PC screen.

I got it for free, but if you didn't, please don't buy it.

First - Ignore the "Shouldn't be on steam" hate, steam is a shop - get over it. A games quality shouldn't be a factor on whether it should be available on a store or not. Ignoring that BS... here's the truth;

The game itself doesn't really have enough depth or skill factor for me to really enjoy it. I can deal with the shoddy graphics, and horrid pixelisation, but the gameplay just isn't there for me. You basically roll a cart down a hill, and apply the brakes when needed. Not very complex, but not very fun either. Sure, the later levels have an element of balancing, wheelies and maybe even a "be the right speed at the right time" element to it. But still... nothing really grabbed me and made me enjoy it. I think its main flaw, is that I was half expecting the camera to zoom out and see the whole track so I can plan a bit more - you're given a preview - but being able to see more than a few meters in front of you would be a much better option. Basically there are games like LineRider that are similar and, at least to me, are a lot more fun.

But a gigantic flaw the game has, is it being unoptimised as hell. Yes, this seems to be a mobile game made for PC (which I have no problem what-so-ever with normally). Kudos for attempting to add controller support, but it's all over the place - menu's are confusing, and don't seem to improve on either mouse/keyboard or joypad. Perhaps customisable option in game would soften the blow a little, but half the time its hard to see what you're supposed to be clicking on, and the other half its awkward "swipe" controls. Fullscreen mode seems to match the height of your screen instead of the width, meaning it cuts off the left and right of the screen if you're not on a decent widescreen ratio (Sure, playing in a window prevents some of this, but I prefer fullscreen with black borders if necessary).

All in all, its one of the few games where it's been really easy to say that I wouldn't recommend it. Unless the game is given a big overhall via updates, then I think my opinion will stay that way. I wish the devs the best of luck, none the less.

This just barely gets a recommendation -- and only if you have a controller to play it with. The game is in my opinion unplayable with mouse controls. If you do not have a controller - skip it.

Swipecart is not an action game - it is a physics puzzle game. You control a minecart which you give speed at the start, then strategically slow down on the actual tracks in order to not fall to your death.
Each level can be played either for maximum speed, or getting all gems, and these two are tracked separately.

Play this windowed as it does not look good in fullscreen on a large monitor. But if you can get past these problems, you're left with a decent game to waste a few idle minutes with, and the presence of online leaderboards keeps you primed to try and do better.
