Curator Review

By Indiegames Inside September 17, 2022

“Ein rasanter Mix aus Action-Roguelike & Dodge ’em up, in dem man Container einsammeln und schnelle Ausweichmanöver durchführen muss, statt sich wie in typischen Arcade-Shootern den Weg freizuschießen.”

“This game is a marvel. [...] Brisk, stylish and compulsive, this is everything an arcade game should be!”

“[Swordship] isn't a marathon, but an exhilarating sprint!”
8 – EDGE

“[...] one of the most inventive and polished indie games of 2022. [...] At its high points, it offers the most thrilling and satisfying experiences of the year.”


About This Game

The world after global warming. Humanity has taken refuge in three gigantic underwater cities at the bottom of the ocean.

Those who are expelled from the cities, for lack of space, barely survive on the burned lands. Meanwhile, the megacities exchange millions of containers loaded with goods every day.

At the command of ultra-fast boats, a few inhabitants of the underwater cities started stealing these precious containers, in order to deliver them to the banished.

Some are more successful than others.

Dodge attacks to survive and trick your enemies into killing each other

Steal containers and deliver them to upgrade your ship or improve your score

No shooting, but all the action!

  • Guns are cool but they are bulky and heavy: The Swordship doesn't have any and that's part of what makes it so light and maneuverable
  • Ship variant: Collect power-boosting components and experiment with different play styles in your runs
  • Upgrade: Exchange stolen containers for passive upgrades that fit the situation and your play style
  • Weather: Learn to master the different weather conditions to get through the randomly generated levels
