The Swapper - Análisis

You may never have heard of The Swapper, but it's about the indie feeling of the moment. A platform and puzzle game from cold Helsinki that shows us that in the world of video games there is still a lot of room for awakened minds and innovative ideas.

There are games that convey 'something' beyond simple playable sensations. Titles that manage to transcend the screen and touch the player in a different way than video games usually do. Unique creations that exude originality, character and quality at the same time. A type of games that precisely in these times of rehash and clones seems to be in short supply. You can almost count on the fingers of the hand the titles that have managed to surprise us like this in recent years: Braid, Portal, Fez ... Illustrious names of projects that have already entered the hall of fame. The next candidate for that coveted room has arrived and is called The Swapper , developed by the almost absolute strangers of Facepalm Games .

Like many other indie titles, The Swapper relies on a classic scheme to start your proposal, but includes a small twist that is a complete overturn to the original formula. In this case we are facing a two-dimensional platform with free exploration of the stage in the Metroid style. The peculiarity is that here the enemies are conspicuous by their absence, since the plot places us in a completely abandoned and adrift space station that we know nothing about.

So far nothing that sounds precisely spectacular or novel. The twist is the protagonist's only tool and special ability, a clone gun that will allow us to create up to four simultaneous copies of ourselves. These beings will move copying our movements unless they meet an obstacle or die from some environmental hazard. We are also allowed to change our consciousness to one of these copies as long as it is in plain view of our current body. The final piece of the puzzle is the fact that as we use the gun time will slow down, allowing us to even climb to high altitudes without the need for ledges or stairs, just copying and changing consciousness, to immediately stop time and repeat the process.

The possibilities of this system are wide and they are also supported by an extraordinary level design, which takes us from one location to another without leaving the screen, always adjusting the difficulty with extreme care so that we do not advance too quickly nor does it turn out an easy title. What's more, we can say that The Swapper is one of those titles in which one really feels fulfilled by solving certain puzzles, after hours of thinking about a possible solution that is surely closer than we think. In this sense, it reminds us of Portal and its puzzles, both obvious and complex ... Mini point for Facepalm Games .

Moreover, it could be said that the strong point of this production is its design at all levels, starting with the difficulty curve, going through the variety of situations that are presented to us - there are a number of lights and changes in the original game mechanics. that rejuvenate the simple concept of departure- and reaching more technical aspects such as the graphic bet or the magnificent staging of the story that The Swapper presents. Precisely this last aspect manages to get us into a situation without us practically realizing it, subtly suggesting to us what has happened without hardly finding texts or dialogues that explain the situation. Without going into details, it is obvious that the two Swedes who make up Facepalm Games had in mind science fiction titles like 2001, Solaris or Moon when creating the universe and the plot of the title at hand.

The Swapper is perfectly controlled and its duration is perfect for the type of proposal it offers. It may seem at first glance that 4 hours is not enough, but it is obvious that there are exceptions and this title is one of them, making us stay with a feeling of satisfaction at the end of the adventure. Technically it may not be able to leave us with our mouths open, but this production is not about that, it is going to surprise us with each of its nuances: gameplay, visual bet, history ... In short, a real surprise that is very worthwhile venture to try, and more at its original price € 13.99 -may change depending on the time you read this text-.
