SteamWorld Heist - Analysis

The Swedish Image & Form bring us what is undoubtedly one of the surprises of the year for Nintendo 3DS. And it is that Steamworld Heist is a turn-based strategy game (system already known by users of Nintendo notebooks amply) characterized not only by the steampunk of its appearance, dystopian and sordid, but by the addictiveness of its development. Let's go with the space pirates. If anyone sees Samus, give it a tap and we will run, by the way.

3DS is a console that stands out for the load of role-playing games it receives. In this case, although the battles take place in turns, it is not an RPG that concerns us, but a title that, forgetting the formula that made the previous episode famous ( Steamworld Dig , an adventure in which we dug in a mine ) and opting for a strategy marked by an excellent, agile rhythm, but which leaves room for debate between what to do. We are facing an extensive and long-lasting game ( about 20 hours ), perfect for those hungry for a deep and fun game.

Our crew (who despite being pirates, are good people) are at our command, and the way of facing the adventure varies according to each player. And we can equip our characters as we please. This gives a tremendous game, because it changes the way we face the different battles that are proposed to us. Certainly fighting with a level of beastly demand , that nobody relaxes. The title may have a certain level of "good vibes" in the characters and settings, but falling like flies is really easy, and don't think that the enemies are going to wait for us to hit them. Whether they have a weapon or not, they will destroy our squad as soon as we have a decision.

That is why learning the combat system is really important . We decided, obviously, the movement, also the objective ... and here the stage comes into play, which enriches the experience a lot. Piper Faraday is a female character who appears as the leader of the group, and her role is essential in the development of any confrontation; On the one hand, it will inspire confidence in the squad. On the other, it has the ability to bring us back to life. And that, believe us, is essential to keep our troops alive and thus allow them to level up and in their attributes (and despite the fact that it is not an RPG, the game allows us a high level of evolution of the units ). It is important, in the face of this "survival" of the characters, to make good use of the hiding places that each scenario opens for us, either by protecting ourselves or changing points to guerrilla mode.

The importance of making good choices is such that we are going to be able to choose between 100 weapons (there is nothing) and objects to improve skills, to tip the balance in our favor. Everything has to be measured, from the trajectory of the bullets to hit the walls to the type of rifle we use, because in case of choosing a long-range one, your thing is to choose a more distant positioning of the characters. Be careful because, given the difficulty of each fight, it will not be unusual for us to have to repeat the zone and change our modus operandi. But do not be discouraged, the fast and lively pace of the fighting - despite taking turns - more than makes up for it. It is also essential to measure how much time we spend moving, in order to choose whether to shoot or not. That is to say: we have a limit, within which we can run and shoot, or only move, which is ideal in case of facing an unequal confrontation ... or separating ourselves from something explosive, because here we do not understand friendly and enemy fire, just as we A barrel will hurt than a bullet.

It is striking and at the same time spectacular in this kind of title that we can even calculate where the character points, adding a curious tactical action component: enemies take a certain amount or other of damage depending on the area we fly them . For the record, there is also the possibility of reaching Rambo mode and giving them a plunge. The strategy is free. The result depends. But the truth, everything is a great incentive in order to continue the story, which although simple, is also striking. We are going to immerse ourselves in the past of certain crew members, not to mention that we will visit many environments. Make no mistake, the action always takes place in a similar, coppery, decadent environment.


With an excellent three-dimensional aspect, the game has a really enviable artistic section . We are before a title that in its entirety is developed with the aspect of cartoons implemented. There is no more three-dimensionality than the effect of proximity or distance depending on which characters or elements, but it is more than enough. There is a certain feeling of monotony, but it disappears easily as the fighting breaks out, because the concentration that these rapid confrontations need makes us forget even what we see. But everything, the lights, the colors, the shapes, the characters ... oozes originality and good work, compensating for the absence of better animations or volume in the elements.

As for the audio, it is a section that simply complies . We are not going to have to deal with voices or anything beyond functional effects and music with a somewhat monotonous appearance but that set the action very well. In case you are interested, although the game is officially released in English, there is an update that translates it into our language, which will make it easier for some to enjoy the adventure at a much higher level. And, why complain when we have so many hours ahead of enjoyment? Not everything is good in games, and while in Steamworld Heist we miss a little more variety, we are also shocked that it does not have multiplayer. And it is that although it is sufficient in extension, the adaptation to a competitive way of their confrontations would have been a delight. Take note, gentlemen developers.

When a turn-based strategy game becomes fast and dynamic, it becomes an addictive title like the one at hand. Steamworld Heist is a great game to continue in the universe that its predecessor already opened a long time ago, and the best of the genre for 3DS.
