“Borrowing a lot of core mechanics from similar hit titles such as Super Meat Boy (to great effect), Switch - or die trying is a brilliant purchase for any fan of the genre”
8/10 – Enthusiastic

“I had a fun time avoiding the obstacles and making my way through most of the stages. There were a few that made me want to throw my controller across the room”
Defunct Games

“Switch – Or Die Trying is likely to remain hidden among the vast treasure trove of good games on Steam, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t seek it out and play it!”
3.5/5 – Hey Poor Player

About This Game

This game is hard, really hard! You’ve been warned.

In Switch - Or Die Trying you play the character ‘I’ who has lost all of his friends — his friends being the other 25 letter of the English alphabet — and must help win them back by completing 75 highly challenging levels.

Key Features:

- Switching mechanic; change forms between small ‘i’ and big ‘I’ this affects the worlds around you and also give you an extra jump (not to be confused with double jump)
- “Aww, so cute” main characters
- Dynamic world elements which respond to your current state.
- Split second decision making, you will have to keep your twitch reflexes sharp
- Minimalist 2D ambient art style
- Unique level progression, all levels of a world are at your disposal, complete just 10 levels to unlock a new world
- 5 distinctive worlds, each having their own theme, dynamics, enemies and challenges that complement the player controls learnt right from the start
- Speedruns, insanely difficult speedruns to test your nerves/rage/reflexes (Remember, you can always skip and come back to these later)
- Puzzles, occasionally apart from reflexes, your puzzle solving skills will be put to the test
