While ultimately the switching mechanic is just a clever disguise for double jumps, I enjoyed Switch or Die Trying.

The main problem with Switch - Or Die Trying is that it has clever ideas, but doesn't take advantage of them. Game mechanics, when they're not fully explored, are just gimmicks. If switching is integral, then it needs to have a presence in the entirety of the game, not just a portion. Maybe the switch could have more abilities, such as powering fans that push the hero where he needs to go. Ghosts could chase him, depending on whether he's a big I or a little i. This puzzle-platformer has a lot of untapped potential, and that's a shame.

Switch - or die tryining is an interesting 2D platform that does not introduce anything extremely special, but thanks to its minimalist style it can fit well into the gaming market, offering a simple game in the mechanics but not easy!
