Review: Knight Swap 2 (Nintendo Switch)

The sequel of the successful Knight Swap, with more levels, more gameplay mechanics and even more fun. The goal in each level is to move the opposing knights to where the others are placed (and vice versa) using the features of the board.

Pros:

  • Basic graphics.
  • 58.4mb download size.
  • Puzzle gameplay.
  • Move Chess pieces from place to the designated space.
  • Touchscreen support.
  • Play with grid on or off.
  • A handful of color palettes.
  • 100 levels to unlock.
  • Can replay levels.
  • Unlock new mechanics as you play.

Cons:

  • No tutorial.
  • Have to learn it all yourself.
  • No leaderboards.
  • Little replay value.
  • Jumping between the control types (button and touch) feels like the game doesn’t like it.

Summary

Knight Swap 2 is a puzzle game in which you move Chess pieces from one square to the matching coloured square elsewhere on the board. Would be nice if the game told you this and also gave you any help or advice on what to do? I like it has touchscreen and after all the faff of learning the game its a pretty solid puzzle game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
