2nd Anniversary Sale



Switch 'N' Shoot is 2 years old!! Wow, they grow up so fast.

In those 2 years the game has seen a complete rewrite of its entire code base from scratch, toured a bunch of shows in the UK and US, and found a physical home in DSM Arcade​'s amazing arcade cabinets. (Wanna buy one? Get in touch! https://www.dsmarcade.com/)

To celebrate this wild ride, here's a the biggest discount yet.

If you've been enjoying the game all this time, please remember to leave a review on Steam, as it really genuinely supports me and helps me to continue making indie games.

Or, why not tell a friend who will also love the game, or gift them a copy?? :D

Switch 'N' Shoot at EGX next week



Switch 'N' Shoot is coming to EGX next weekend!

You'll be able to find it in the Leftfield Collection and, yes, the special one-button arcade cabinet will be there in the flesh, courtesy of DSM Arcade.

There will also be a competition to win a T-shirt! (or, if you're not up to the challenge, they will also be on sale for the very first time)



I'll be there in person for the entire event, which runs from Thursday 20th until Sunday 23rd September 2018. Come and say hi!

Reviews

“The brilliantly simple gameplay packs a hilarious level of challenge.”
"DESTROY ALL FANBOYS!"

“Switch 'N' Shoot's simple premise is reason enough to give it a try, and chasing that elusive high score while climbing up the online leaderboards offers enough long-time motivation to keep you enthralled for a while.”
IndieGames

“The game’s a true test of snappy reflexes, enemy and movement anticipation, and making quick decisions about when to take risks and when to play it safe.”

About This Game

Switch 'N' Shoot is a score-based arcade shoot 'em up with a twist...

ONE BUTTON turns your ship and fires your guns at the same time.



This simple rule forces you to think on your feet and time your shots carefully. One misplaced shot and you're space-toast.

Switch 'N' Shoot is small and simple... fast and challenging... and annoyingly addictive. Your run can be over in mere seconds, but you can instantly jump straight back in for another go. Work your way up the leaderboards, learn to Hyperdrive, and take the fight to the invading Incubators!

How many alien badbutts can you take out before you become stardust?


  • Save the world with just one button.
  • Fail instantly. Retry even instantly-er.
  • Portrait / TATE mode support.
  • Border illustration by Paul Duffield.
  • Palette swap options.
  • Silly random name generator.
  • Steam Leaderboards, Achievements and Stats.
  • Steam Trading Cards.

  • Press any button to SHOOT.
  • Press any button to SWITCH direction.
  • (yes, they are both tied to the same any button...)
