Calling all pilots: Earth is under alien attack!
Your assistance is required! No experience necessary.


Piloting an advanced star fighter with just one button is simple: you switch, you shoot. Every shot fired changes your direction, and mastering this is the key to becoming a legend among the stars. Timing is everything!


Don't underestimate its simplicity; this game tests your reflexes like no other! And while your ship might become stardust in a matter of seconds, you can instantly jump back in for "just one more go".


A love letter to arcade classics with crunchy pixel art, chiptune soundtrack, authentic cabinet artwork and compulsive gameplay. Only now you don't need a stack of coins to stand a chance at getting a High Score.


Unlock 64 palettes that completely change the look of everything in the game. Choose from 8-bit favourites or create your own!


At the touch of a button your screen rotates into portrait mode (a.k.a. TATE Mode) for a truly authentic arcade experience. The game supports a wide range of controller setups so how you play is up to you.

This itch.io pack includes:

  • Standalone DRM-free versions for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Hello. I bought XMAS Itchio Mega Bundle and didn't get a steam key for Switch 'N' Shoot. There are no keys available at this time, try again later. Restoke keys please

Hello! I've just loaded in some more Steam keys so you should be able to claim one now. Sorry about that! And thanks for your support :)


Just been browsing through recent releases on Switch and this game caught my eye.

My lad is playing it right now on Switch, loving it and I thought I'd check out which other platforms it was available on.

So, just HAD to repurchase for PC/Steam.

This is a real gem of a game. Simple design, but perfectly executed. The music is perfect for the game too.

Great work, Matt.

Thank you so much for the double purchase and for your kind words! It really means a lot to me! 😊 And I'm really happy that you and your boy are enjoying the game!!


Great game! Perfect on mobile ^_^

Thank you! Glad you're enjoying it! 🙂 


Reminds me of Super Crate Box. Same single-minded, addictive score chasing.

Overloading the single button makes the action feel super slippery and chaotic, same as in Flywrench.

And it's the same ridiculous value proposition as Downwell. I even love the cabinet graphics on the sides. So, like, play this.


I've been spending a bit too much time on this game... It's super addictive.

Here's an interview that I did with the developer: https://youtu.be/XGA9YYhcvUw


Super fun and wonderfully designed space shooter. Highly recommended!
