  • that you can use to push a latch to open the door. Doors don't usually open with a "switch"; They open with a latch or handle. switches are for train tracks.

When I google your sentence, the search engine offers me:

This transparent blue block turns into a real one that you can push into a switch to open a door

along with a great many cartoons and other video images.

So I would interpret the instruction to mean that a block of semi-transparent blue turns opaque and can then be moved sideways across the screen to make contact with the switch.

The use of onto would indicate that the movement was vertically down on to the switch rather than horizontally across towards it.

As I'm not familiar with the game, I can't be sure.

  • It's very poor English. Many of these games are written by non-English speakers and are full of weird s****.
