Despite its many and obvious influences this is an impressively unique vision that offers excellent value for money and one of the best surprises on the 3DS's eShop.

It remains one of the best 3DS titles, and now takes its place among PlayStation's best too. It might not be an extremely lengthy affair, but when it comes to art direction, well paced gameplay, and a brilliant sense of exploration, SteamWorld remains king.

SteamWorld Dig is the game that put Image & Form on the map for most people. It was my first experience with them and I loved it when I played it

It remains a joy. It's calming, pleasurable, cute and tricky. It's Spelunky for people who don't like restarting all the time. But it's also its own distinct notion, with its focus on progression over difficulty. SteamWorld Dig is a really lovely, very fun time. What a great thing for a game to be.
