“How many times have you heard the phrase 'something is like something else with a twist'? Loads, I bet. Swaps and Traps is a neat puzzle game that really means it.”
PC Gamer

“It's a quirky looking platformer with a labyrinth like environment where sections of the screen swap positions, turn over and even flip horizontally and vertically.”
Honourable Mention – Get Indie Gaming

“Swaps and Traps has really incredible gameplay as for platformer, try it!”

About This Game


Swaps and Traps is here to give you a platformer experience with triggered screens with a unique labyrinth feeling.

A Hat That Changes Everything

Mike is a decent man. An ordinary one, you might say. But he is no pushover when it comes to capturing the enchanted hat from his nemesis, Divider. You see, Divider’s hat changes everything, including the position and direction of the screen. Mike’s only hope is to collect the cursed keys, and catch Divider through different locations and traps.
Swaps and Traps is a fun little game, which will challenge your platformer skills as well as your eyes and necks. As you collect a key in a scene, you also trigger the main trap of the game. Portions of your screen will swap, turn and even flip horizontally and vertically to give you one unique adventure.
