SteamWorld Dig 2 For 3DS!
SteamWorld Dig 2 is now available on your Nintendo 3DS! It has been available on Nintendo Switch, as well as other platforms. But now you can play SteamWorld Dig 2 for 3DS in glasses-free 3D
Where is Rusty?
SteamWorld Dig 2 for 3DS tasks you with finding Rusty, the protagonist from the first game. Rusty has disappeared and Dorothy, the main character, must find him. SteamWorld Dig 2 is a “Metroidvania” style game that has you digging through the dirt, forging your own path. So with that, let’s get our hands dirty!
Grab Your Pickaxe
The main idea of SteamWorld Dig 2 is to dig your way down into the Earth to make your own path through the world. As you start to mine your way down you will uncover minerals that you can take back to the surface to sell to earn money. When you make more money, you can upgrade your gear, as well as acquire new abilities. As you improve your equipment, you will be able to dig further down and uncover new areas. The game involves platforming, and it does a beautiful job with it. The controls are fantastic, and the platforming is addictive. Steamworld Dig 2 for 3DS makes you think about how you dig your tunnels so that you will be able to maneuver back to the surface.
Down In The Tunnels
As you make your way through your mine, you will find caves to enter that will challenge you, and reward you with more minerals or upgrades to your steam tank, health, and light. Specific tools will make use of your steam tank, which you can refill at any pool of water. The light bar will continue to run down as long as you are underground. The only way to refill the light bar is to either return to the surface or find an upgrade. Upgrading Your characters stats will allow you to spend way more time exploring down in the mines. While you’re exploring, you will come across many characters that are full of life and have a lot to say. Some will even give you tips and tricks for digging your mine.
Dig Dig Dig!
SteamWorld Dig 2 offers up a ton of replayability by giving you the freedom to dig the tunnels your way. You may want to jump back in to see if you can beat your time. The game is perfect for speed runners and casual players alike. You can play however you like and have a good time. Aside from the gameplay, SteamWorld Dig 2 also features some cameos from other indie game developers. One that sticks in my mind is a mineral named Zoinkonium, a wink at Zoink Games.
The Results Are In!
I have no problem recommending this game to everyone. The game is full of personality, fun gameplay, and a vast world to explore. The first time I sat down to play SteamWorld Dig 2 I ended up marathoning the game to completion. Image & Form Struck diamonds with SteamWorld Dig 2, and I cannot wait to play through it again on my 3DS!
