SteamWorld games (imageform games)
Over the Christmas period, I downloaded both SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist for my 3DS. Both very different games from two different genres; ‘Heist’ is a turn based strategy game, where every shot and movement requires planning and thought (especially on the more taxing difficulty levels) whereas, ‘Dig’ is a Metroid-vania lite where mining (digging) is the core mechanic with upgrades and exploration also featuring prominantly. While ‘Dig’ is a concise, tight package, I found ‘Heist’, although, polished, a little overlong and drawn out with some repetitive scenarios and level design. Having (finally) completed Heist, both are perfectly suited for late night bedtime gaming and come highly recommended.
