Grab your pickaxe and dig into the sequel to the award-winning SteamWorld Dig! A platform mining adventure forged in Metroidvania flames. In search of her lost friend, a lone steambot and her unlikely companion must dig deep, gain riches and explore an underworld riddled with danger. But time is running short...
As not to be expected ingenious game. The old ore and gem addiction is coming back. You want to dig deeper and come back even deeper with a full backpack. Then oh a new cave, I'll take a look at it. A few puzzles Later, you hold an artifact and...
a cog in your hand.
Unfortunately, it can also happen that you overdo it, go overboard and die. Then you are deprived of some resources to the base and at first you are pissed off, mainly at yourself. But that's part of the appeal of the game, this risk and the pure joy if you can bring in fat loot with a full backpack and afford cool new upgrades. All this, together with a successful atmosphere and a nice humorous and not too serious story. . .
(really click all NPCs again after every upgrade of your robot through a steam machine and talk to them, really funny dialogues)
. . . makes the special charm of the game. They have enlarged the area that can be searched (as far as I still have the predecessor in mind). The opponents and the environment are lovingly designed and there is a good atmosphere when playing. The flair is right and you can't say that about every one of the assembly line titles anymore. It even motivates to play through again, simply because it's a lot of fun to collect and upgrade your bot. I'm still at the first time, though. A jewel. ^^
