Swapette Showdown is a fast paced competitive action puzzler that plays a little like a blend of Super Puzzle Fighter and Bejeweled, with you earning points by matching 3 colored blocks and using the unique special abilities of the various playable characters.
The basic game mechanics in Swapette Showdown are similar to Bejeweled or Candy Crush, with you swapping tiles to line up three (or more of a kind) and earning points as they disappear. There are lots of different game modes though,including Story Mode, online or local Vs Modes, Battle Royale, Puzzle Mode, Endless Mode and a Classic Mode that eschews the character’s special abilities.
There are lots of playable Anime-styled characters, each of which have their own special abilities, such as shrouding their opponent’s blocks in darkness or clearing all of one type of block from your side of the screen. You power up your special attacks by matching tiles then unleash them to try and destroy your opponents.
It’s a promising game that looks set to offer some addictive match 3 multiplayer fun. Sign up for the Alpha to join in the tile-swapping showdown.
