Panic!, called Switch (スイッチ) in Japan, is a 1993 point-and-click adventure game by Sega for the Sega Mega-CD. You play as a cartoon boy who interacts with various different environments to save the world. Each object you interact with has a humorous/absurd effect. It is not related to Double Switch, a later Mega-CD game.

A working title of the North American translation appears to have been Haywire. Promotional material showed that the game was rated MA-17 by the VRC, but the final release was rated by the ESRB instead.

It was later remade on the PlayStation 2 in Japan.
