Swordship is a futuristic lightning-fast dodge’em up which flips the script on the traditional arcade shooter. Turn both the tide of battle and enemies on themselves by dodging, weaving and diving your way through an onslaught of enemies hell-bent on tearing your Swordship apart.
The world after global warming. Humanity has taken refuge in three gigantic underwater cities at the bottom of the ocean.
Those who are expelled from the cities, for lack of space, barely survive on the burned lands. Meanwhile the megacities exchange millions of containers loaded with goods every day.
At the commands of ultra fast boats, a few inhabitants of the underwater cities started stealing these precious containers, in order to deliver them to the banished.
Some are more successful than others.
Dodge attacks to survive and trick your enemies into killing each other. Steal containers and deliver them to upgrade your ship or improve your score. No shooting, but all the action!


  • Guns are cool but they are bulky and heavy: The Swordship doesn't have any and that's part of what makes it so light and manoeuvrable
  • Ship variant: Collect power-boosting components and experiment with different play styles in your runs
  • Upgrade: Exchange stolen containers for passive upgrades that fit the situation and your play style
  • Weather: Learn to master the different weather conditions to get through the randomly generated levels

Brisk, stylish and compulsive, this is everything an arcade game should be.
by Richard Seagrave
7 / 10
If you love arcade-styled games that challenge your skills and draw you in time and time again in order to set a new high-score, Swordship is very much worth playing. It’s a simple concept but one that’s been executed rather well. And it is somewhat fun outwitting your enemies and making them destroy each other as you vie to collect valuable cargo.

Digital Kingdoms have really set the bar high here and I look forward to what treasures they bring to us in the future.
