Update 1.3 adds new languages (简体中文, 日本語, русский, Português Brasileiro) and more!



Version 1.3.1 is now live!

This brings all the new changes over from the recent Nintendo Switch release, plus some newer tweaks and bug fixes.



Here's the full list of changes:

Changes:
  • Added language support for Simplified Chinese (简体中文).
  • Added language support for Japanese (日本語).
  • Added language support for Russian (русский).
  • Added language support for Brazilian Portuguese (Português Brasileiro).
  • Added colour palette unlock system (based on the furthest Sector you have reached).
  • Added 7 new colour palettes to unlock, with 8 presets per palette.
  • Palette swap menu overhauled.
  • Player ship colour changes if you set the background to the same colour (and vice versa) so you can't accidentally hide the ship and menu text.
  • Added more options for random name generator.
  • Gameplay pop-up text is now positioned near the area of focus (e.g. "Power-up!" text is positioned above where you caught the power-up).
  • Added icon to go straight to Extras menu from 'game over' screen.
  • Stat values are now capped (at ridiculously large values) to avoid save file issues on Switch.
  • Added an option to disable the 'arcade cabinet' border artwork.
  • Added sound effect and visual warnings when laser walls and bosses appear.
  • Added sound effect when 'Back' is pressed in menus.
  • Added sound effect when power-ups appear.
  • Added sound effect when shield-dropper alien appears.
  • Application is now built for 64-bit OS.
  • TATE Mode now supports both portrait orientations.
  • Added developer links on shutdown.
  • Web links are now opened in the Steam Overlay.

Bug fixes:
  • Certain elements now display at the right orientation in TATE Mode (stars, screen shake and screen-wipe).
  • Final score text no longer sits too high up.
  • A default icon is now automatically highlighted in all menus.
  • Buttons cannot be spammed during transitions when you instigate a level load.
  • The correct icon is now selected when you press 'down' from the 'Back' icon in the Extras menu.
  • You can now skip the leaderboard display animation again, to speed up game restart (this was added, then broke).
  • 'Quit' button now works correctly again.
  • Audio with randomised pitch no longer interferes with audio with fixed pitch.
  • Keyboard/controller menu input no longer breaks if you deselect all icons with the mouse.
  • Game window now fits correctly on super-widescreen displays.
  • Fixed some text not being localised in certain languages.
  • Remapping the 'Quit' button now works properly.







I hope you enjoy this update! Please remember to:

“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.”
VGBlogger

Just Updated

Version 1.3 is here! Take to the stars and experience 64 retro colour palettes, plus countless little improvements and bug fixes. Hit the hangar, pilot. The leaderboards are waiting!

About This Game

Calling all pilots: Earth is under alien attack!
Your assistance is required! No experience necessary.



ONE BUTTON:

Piloting an advanced star fighter with just one button is simple: you switch, you shoot. Every shot fired changes your direction, and mastering this is the key to becoming a legend among the stars. Timing is everything!


QUICK. SIMPLE. CHALLENGING:

Don't underestimate its simplicity; this game tests your reflexes like no other! And while your ship might become stardust in a matter of seconds, you can instantly jump back in for "just one more go".


RETRO ARCADE FEEL:

A love letter to arcade classics with crunchy pixel art, chiptune soundtrack, authentic cabinet artwork and compulsive gameplay. Only now you don't need a stack of coins to stand a chance at getting a High Score.

COLOUR PALETTES:

Unlock 64 palettes that completely change the look of everything in the game. Choose from 8-bit favourites or create your own!

PORTRAIT MODE:

At the touch of a button your screen rotates into portrait mode (a.k.a. TATE Mode) for a truly authentic arcade experience. The game supports a wide range of controller setups so how you play is up to you.
