Swordship Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Beyond the fonts, Swordship is still rather excellent. This is pure arcade brilliance, actually, a fast-paced avoid-’em-up with a maritime larceny twist. Your Swordship is a dinky yellow mischief-maker, a needle-thin arrowhead of a craft that can open its tiny jaws to grab containers lost to the ocean, and then pinch them. It can’t shoot, not really anyway, but it can trick nearby enemies into killing each other. Collect containers, get the enemies to kill each other, all within the narrow confines of a single top-down screen, which is given a bit of zip by the fact that everything on the screen is actually racing over the surface of endless waves. That’s Swordship’s whole deal. But as with the fonts, it’s not the rules of the game so much as what the game does with the rules. Okay, so collecting containers. You’re racing along, moving left and right and up and down and a container is approaching. You know this because a bright yellow line appears on the screen – a shipping lane. Get into that and collect the container! Zing! I don’t think there is actually a greater feeling in any game I’ve played this year. Pure connection. So now, you have a container in your mouth.

You can use it as a bomb to wipe the screen of enemies, or you can bank it, which means waiting until a drop-off point appears on screen and hovering there for a few seconds. That sounds easy, but in fact it’s enormously hard. This is because the screen is filled with enemies. Turrets that track you and then shoot. Mines that pop up. Crackling laser walls. Hovering baddies who drop bombs from above. Rotating barbecue ovens. All sorts. What these enemies share are red marks that show the areas that they’re going to attack, and a pause before attacking which allows you to get into the red mark, make sure it’s where you want it to be, and then get out again. So the overhead bomb droppers – move close to a turret you want to be rid of, wait for the red marks, and then leg it. The turrets, meanwhile, can be lured into targeting other turrets, or mines, which can be induced to go off and kill turrets, or the laser wall guys, or the fire-ball lobbers. Onwards and onwards. Mix the enemies up with the crates and you have a dodging game of truly glorious elegance and intrigue. I never tire of getting baddies to blast their own side. I never tire of the last minute container drop which allows me to rack up points and get out of the way again just before I’m killed. I never tire of the perfect dive – you can duck under the waves for a limited amount of time – that extinguishes a fire and gets me out of the way of a bomb.

Ship variant.

It reminds me of the classic arcade game Spy Hunter in this regard – you have to have your eye on a couple of things at any time, and it’s all about positioning. Swordship is already great, then. But for me it actually gets a little bit greater. Not just the simple low-poly graphics that burst with colour, or the brisk zip of the animations. I love the way that everything is tied together. The containers you collect – at the end of each level you can either bank them for score or keep them for extra lives. Or you can keep them and open them for a perk, maybe aligning the container lanes from now on or granting you instant drop offs. Points, meanwhile, allow you to play the long grade of opening up permanent upgrades, weather conditions, different ship abilities, and even different difficulty settings and concept art. It’s endlessly surprising. This muddling together of things, this collection of knotty choices that leaves you in charge as you trade score for health for getting yourself tricked out, actually makes Swordship feel more compact in an area – progression and unlocks – where a lot of arcade games succumb slightly to bloat. You’re always making these interesting, could-go-either-way decisions.Bot Gaiden Switch NSP

Every unlock matters, every point matters – and every life matters. This game is just phenomenal. Swordship looks like something from the world of Wipeout, except here the race is for your life. With buttery cel-shaded graphics and a cool ambient techno soundtrack, it’s stylistically polished. The frame rate maintains a perfect 60 FPS, with its industrial periphery altering between cities and the colour of the seas moving through several pastel shades. In a post-apocalyptic future, the fortunate have taken root in megacities beneath the seas. Rogue pilots who fight for the banished race down waterways looking for stray containers, grabbing them when they surface and delivering them via a portal. Pegged as a ‘dodge ’em up’, Swordship is just that, confining you to a volatile rectangular area where you use everything at your disposal to stay afloat. Discounting the occasional smart bomb or stun weapon, you have no guns, and the idea is to trick the enemy drones, laser turrets, mine deployers, and cannons, amongst others, into accidentally killing each other. This involves, for example, letting mines track you while you camp near a gun turret, watching its spherical blast radius and listening for pitch changes.

Upgrade.

Before hauling ass as the explosion takes the turret with it. Creating combos with this technique often leads to big score bonuses. When navigating the relentless ocean floor, your dive — which allows your craft to temporarily submerge beneath the water — is your get-out-of-jail-free card. Time it right, and it’ll save your skin. Get it wrong and you’re vaporised in the blink of an eye. Swordship is a challenging game, geared toward experts. Although you can tailor your ship and enemy response speeds, there’s only one real difficulty setting, no continues, and the name of the game is score — which is why the absence of online leaderboards is so mystifying (Correction: Online leaderboards are available after completing a run in every city without losing your available lives and getting a game over. This was missed during our review testing. As this is still fairly difficult to unlock, our assessment remains unchanged). If you manage to reach the fourth city, which takes dedicated practice, you can consider yourself advanced enough to go the distance. Some, sadly, may get frustrated before reaching this point. One minor niggle is that there’s no D-pad control option, which some may prefer over analog sticks.Chained Echoes Switch NSP

The game dishes out ship upgrades between stages along with an abundance of extra lives, and eventually, you’ll be rewarded with a newer craft. Hardcore players can choose to trade life bonuses for score — a risk-and-reward scenario that has you living on a knife edge in the game’s latter half. Each city introduces new enemy types with different behaviours and even tailored weather conditions, creating a unique personality for each new area, and requiring you to strategise and act differently in each. The setup of destroying enemies using their own ordnance is satisfying and, when you pull off a ‘quadra trick’ for the first time, sending the screen ablaze as the camera momentarily, dynamically shifts to take in the carnage, is thrilling. Global warming has come in full force, causing the oceans to rise rapidly, and human civilization now lives in underwater cities. Not everyone can afford the luxury of this elite accommodation, and the poorer folk known as ‘the banished’ are cast out to what’s left of Earth’s desolate wastelands. But not all hope is lost. As the pilot of a futuristic speedboat-style vehicle, it’s your job to intercept deliveries from the rich folk and get the resources to the people that need them.

Weather.

However, the oceans are no longer those peaceful views you once had on your office wall with some inspirational slogan like ‘Destiny.’ Now they are littered with robots that really just want to blow your little boat out of the water. The text briefly describes this story when you boot the game up. Between levels, there are also these quick news reels of what’s happening in the world, as well as a weather report for each of the levels you played, a feature which made me chuckle. It’s all brief, sets the scene and if you don’t care, it doesn’t interfere with the gameplay. The main focus is on the arcade-style action. Swordship drops you pretty quickly into the deep end of its gameplay. Controls and mechanics are introduced with on-screen prompts. These go by just a little too quickly, and I accidentally skipped through one. The controls are smooth and easy to use. The screen is constantly scrolling like an endless runner, so you just need to move and use a dodge to dive underwater to avoid enemy attacks. Not too long into the game, you will also get the chance to unlock moves that can be charged up, like an electrical stun, to temporarily pause enemies in their place. Many nasty robots want to do nothing more than stop your delivery. Your weapon of choice to defend yourself is actually manipulating the robots to destroy each other.

When a robot appears, you will notice a pattern to their attacks, like a laser sight or area of effect to pre-warn you where they will strike. If you’re quick enough, you can move into a position which lines up with another robot and then dodge out of the way so they destroy each other. Pulling this off is incredibly satisfying. It’s also the quickest way to increase your score. Its high-speed arcade gameplay, at its best, quickly becomes quite addictive when it clicks. It’s always a good sign of a game when I instantly want to start another run after failing miserably. By scoring high enough, you will unlock more content between runs. It’s here I had a little niggle with the game. Usually, in these types of games, your experience will carry over per round. In Swordship if you don’t achieve a minimum score, the experience bar will simply reset to zero. This means it can take many failed attempts before you see any new content like new ship unlocks or items to discover in the game. This may lead to some players dropping out early if the gameplay doesn’t suit them. The goal of Swordship is to race across the dangerous waters collecting cargo and successfully delivering them at designated points.

Levels are randomly generated with enemies and delivery points spawning in varied spots. You need to intercept a certain number of cargo lines to complete the level, but delivering the cargo is not essential but carries benefits. The more cargo crates you deliver, the more rewards you could receive on completion. When the level is over, any cargo crates you acquire can be kept or exchanged for points. Picking raw points which will help you reach a higher score and unlock more general content in the game. Alternatively, you can pick extra lives that will help you survive a little longer. These crates will also unlock a new move, possibly improving your chances of survival. But they also add extra spice to the gameplay while allowing you to mix up your tactics. The more crates you keep, the more upgrades you can choose, but only one can be carried forward for the rest of the run. Graphics are of a simple design. Your bright yellow ship has a low poly feel that feels reminiscent of the Wipeout series back on the PlayStation. The design feels simple but effective; robot baddies have a unique look and feel, making it easy to identify how they will attack. The water effects also give a high-octane sense of speed. What makes the presentation stand out the most is just how well it runs in TV and handheld mode. Squids Odyssey Switch NSP
