Switch 'N' Shoot Review

Author: @GeekDadGamer.


Switch 'N' Shoot is a shooting game controlled by a single button. You pilot a star-fighter, each time you press to shot you change direction. It's a novel way to play but also can be good for players with motor impairment (and fast reactions).

At first it seems almost impossible, but you can quickly start again. Over time you improve and discover the depth and complexity that can come from a single interaction. Add to this the retro visuals and synth soundtrack and you have a compelling and affordable experience.

You can also rotate the screen to play in portrait mode. The game also supports a wide range of controller setups so how you play is up to you.

This game has been rated PEGI 3.


This is an intentionally very difficult game, although you can quickly restart from the beginning when you die. You play with a single button to fire and change direction. On Nintendo Switch you can also use the touchscreen (anywhere) to fire and change direction, as well as any button or stick, and play in Portrait mode to make the screen considerably bigger.
