Swap Cops is the simplest turn-based strategy game you're ever likely to play.

The game sees you swapping four characters, arranged in an inverted triangle formation, back and forth to replenish their health and deploy their special weapons at the three columns of advancing baddies.

It's a simple mechanic, but along with the differing capabilities of the enemies and (upgradeable) cops and the variety of mission types, it makes for a surprisingly deep game.

Swap Cops can start to feel grindy, and its simple gameplay gets repetitive over long sessions, but it's still an unusual, charming casual strategy game with an ultra-slick interface.
