I'm back with another Swap!

Hope you like it, Exact-Psience. This one is quite a bit different than the Heroes games. It's faster, simpler, and more action oriented.

Hmm... I was kind of hoping it would be harder. Well, not necessarily harder, but deeper. I liked your other two, but found the strategic options pretty limited. What keeps Swap Cops from being more of the same? Also, why free? Is there an unlock IAP?

There are no energy mechanics of any kind. You can retry a mission as many times as you like. I assume you're talking about the revive option. This brings your team back to full health and does not reset the mission progress. You get 5 free and then you can watch ads for revives as well.

Hey Oscar. Firstly, thanks for playing the first two Swap Heroes, appreciate that. Swap Cops is definitely a move in a more casual direction. Before I leave the swap mechanic and move onto something brand new I wanted to make a version that was faster, simpler, and most of all free. Swap Cops is built to be snappier and more accessible. I went free for those reasons, as well as for my own learning. I've never made a game with IAP or ads before so I wanted to go through that experience.

There is no 'unlock' IAP. There are no energy mechanics and no forced ads (only optional). The IAP are mostly for coins which give you the other characters early but hopefully nothing feels pushy or mandatory.
