Steamworld Dig - 4 Stars.

I personally enjoyed this game a lot. It is not a deep, intellectual game, but it is fun. The simplicity of the game is what might attract a lot of people, (it attracted me) but soon you will realise that you are in for the long haul. This game takes 8-10 hours to complete, (Including walking around the same area for any reason, getting lost, falling down a hole into acid, not being able to get your stuff back, etc.) so has great value for being ten dollars.

On top of that, the game is completely controlled with your keyboard, so you can play it on the go! This was probably my favorite thing about this game, and I would find my self playing it on buses. The game has a power-up system that encourages you to keep on playing- but you hae been playing for 3 hours.

The worst thing about this game is NOT repetitive gameplay. The game realizes when your board, then gives you a whole other type of ground to dig in. This is NOT a minecraft related product. (Thank god.) The only thing about the game that I truly hated would have to be the ending. Don’t expect a great story either.. but that isn’t a huge drawback.

Great game, well thought out

I have found this game fun, with a good plot line, and no major bugs. All in all, a five star game
