A superb offering, a metaphysical discussion masterfully disguised as an excellently designed puzzle game. A game that you will remember.90Meristation
This is serious sci-fi, concerned not so much with aliens and gadgetry, but the effects these things have on the soul.90Eurogamer
The Swapper isn’t a mere platform puzzle game: its deep narrative side fit perfectly the gameplay. Maybe it’s a little short, but there isn’t nothing else like
The Swapper is an adventure where atmosphere, involving visuals and sound go hand in hand to make you dream. Seriously unmissable!

The idea is brilliant, but it could be taken to the next level with some tweaks and additions. It could be a truly captivating game if the world was more immersive and engaging.60ns0l
All in all, the setting is perfect for a puzzle game built around existential despair…Its clever, creepy and macabre.70Edge Magazine
Game’s not bad, but too much enphasis on the puzzles, which some times can be unnerving.. The story and atmosphere are pretty crazy though. I preferred other titles like Limbo or Inside70Derf3L
