Double Switch is the FMV game in which you control the trap like security systems that protect the building from countless evil foes wandering within. Your supervisor and the owner of the building, played by Corey Haim, has been locked up and now has drafted you to do his job.
You are put in charge of arming the traps, which requires that you fast-jump to different areas of the building and select which trap to spring on the unsuspecting bad guys.
The graphics are better than the Sega CD version, but not up to Saturn's standards. The control is simple but highly confusing. In the beginning of the game, it seems as if you are just flashing about the screen with no purpose in mind and watching the traps suck in the bad guys with almost no input from you. The action of Double Switch is mostly in the form of an army of repeating enemies who never seem to get the hint that they are unwanted and just abandon their effort. But if you do a less-than-average job as the human security system, you get repeatedly reprimanded by your supervisor. It's not pretty.
Unfortunately, Double Switch is nothing more than a game designed for players who like tricks, traps and most of all, Corey Haim. Players who are expecting a revamped version of Night Trap are sadly mistaken. This title boasts nothing more than a fallen star thrown in with other B-actors that have as much of a future as this title.
