Double Switch is a full motion video game developed by Digital Pictures. It was brought to the Sega Mega-CD and then later, Sega Saturn.

Gameplay

Double Switch follows a similar structure to Digital Pictures' previous work, Night Trap. The player needs to monitor rooms of a hotel and trap enemies, while also listening out for access codes. The game is more elaborate than Night Trap, with multiple traps in a room.

Combined, Double Switch offers 60 minutes of full motion video, though gameplay lasts roughly 30.
