Snap(ping), Crackl(ing), and Pop(ping) your Swarmites

Controlling the swarm is a novel experience, playing through the levels and maintaining swarmite deaths to keep your multiplier is fun

Forced replays lessen the experience, more levels with lower score requirements would have been welcomed

Swarm goes for a cartoony look and succeeds. Swarmites burst in a satisfying pop of blue goo when killed, and the swarm contrasts well with the varied colored environments. There's no dialogue, but the background music sets a nice enough tone,...

Swarm- PS3


Swarm lets the player take control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and drive them through an intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle for a greater good. Run, bash, huddle, boost, stack, jump, push and throw your way through gauntlets of death...

The creators of the Penny Arcade and DeathSpank games, Hothead Games, have made some pretty good games, right? Yeah... Okay, so let's stop being coy; Swarm is not very good. It is sometimes good, but not often, with the key problem being vaguely...

Swarm Review


Gnarly deaths and cute aliens make for a fun combo in this challenging action game.

Lots of creative maneuvers to pull off ; Clever rewards for killing swarmites ; High-score hunting is addictive

Occasionally brutal difficulty ; Short length

Swarm Review


I can still remember the first time I played Lemmings. The concept boggled my mind. There was nothing like it that I had ever played.

Climbing leaderboards is addictive ; Sadistic humor ; Quirky art style

Controls take getting used to ; Humor falls flat sometimes

I can still remember the first time I played Lemmings. The concept boggled my mind. There was nothing like it that I had ever played. That concept has bred so many ideas over the years and was my first thought when booting up Hothead Games’ latest...

Do you like killing innocent creatures in the most heinous ways imaginable? You do? Then Swarm might just be for you.

When you combine engaging and unique gameplay with Swarm’s pleasant (but dark) aesthetics and whimsical nature, what you have is a great downloadable game. There’s a good deal of content here, and it’s all nestled in a polished package. I like games...

Swarm (Xbox 360, PS3) review


Swarm positions you as the minder of fifty easily replaceable blue-ish things called Swarmites - whose lives you can callously end in multiple adorably sadistic ways. It's not a game that treats death as the be-all end-all to your gaming well-being, as...

It pains me to admit it, but the one thing I did not fully enjoy about Swarm was the gameplay. Everything else seemed spot on. I loved the humour, I adored the game's style, and in the same vein as Ubisoft's Rabbids, the Swarmites are annoyingly...

Last week I journeyed into parts unknown, visited a strange planet and killed an evolving race by the thousands by setting them on fire, electrocuting them, sending them off cliffs and vaporising them. I am, of course, talking about Swarm, a recent PSN...

Swarm is a fun, ridiculous game of death filled platforming. There is a surprising amount of variety in its level design and it's just long enough to not outstay its welcome. However, leaderboards and collectables will let you punish yourself a little...

We gather up the swarm Momma has left behind and attempt to keep as many alive as we can

Overall this is a good little game, nicely priced but be prepared for some frustration on the way.

Swarm (2011)


Much like Nintendo’s cutesy Pikmin or the puzzle classic Lemmings as imagined by a sadist with a deliciously twisted sense of humour, Swarm is a dream download.
