The story in SteamWorld Dig is almost non existent. The player take’s the role as Rusty, a lone mining steambot, as he arrives to an old mining town in great need. Dig your way through the old earth, gaining riches while uncovering the ancient threat that lurks below. Whilst there isn’t much of a story as you play through the game, this general premise is enough to keep you going with a general understanding of why you are where you are.
SteamWorld dig is an impressive looking game. It has beautiful sprites and extremely fluid animation. The beautifully created sprites create one of the nicest art styles that i’ve seen on a 3DS game. If I had one little nitpick with the visuals it’d be that the 3D didn’t add much. Whilst it changed the depth of the background I really feel that it could’ve done more to make things pop in the underground. I feel like puzzles could’ve also used 3D to explore different gameplay mechanics.
