SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition is a fantastic port of a fantastic game, and it fits perfectly on the Switch. Deep, engaging gameplay and stylish presentation combine to make this one of the standout indie releases of the year; this is a great example of a well put-together game. If you are at all a fan of strategy games, or are just looking for a fun diversion to occupy your time over the next couple weeks, pick up this game. It puts a neat twist on standard turn-based strategy gameplay, and stands as another fantastic entry in the SteamWorld series.

SteamWorld Heist bought me after fifteen minutes of fun, and regret after turning off the console compensated for the launch of the edition on PlayStation Vita. I do not regret a single penny spent on this small, but unusual work. That's my best invested money in June.

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition executes tactical, turn-based combat well and greatly improves on the original, all while adding the latest DLC into the equation, which is essentially more icing on the cake.

Image & Form would have committed an unforgivable crime to deny the joy of playing its Steamworld Heist even to all the owners of Playstation 4 and Vita: after all, we are talking about one of the most eccentric and entertaining turn-based strategic of recent times.
