I missed Steamworld Dig the first time around. I decided to check it
out on the Xbox One when Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download
code. It actually makes sense to pay a different reviewer to work on a
game ported from one system to another one. That way reviewers do not
get burned out, or sick of the same game. On the other side of the coin
it helps to have played a game before to know all of the shortcuts.
I like Steamworld Dig on the Xbox One. It addicted me quickly. Steamworld Dig reminds me of Terraria in the fun but also frustrating factor. Steamworld Dig is a tough game. I died in Steamworld Dig so many times it was crazy. I went back and got my stuff and sold it. Why? Because the best way to progress in Steamworld Dig is to essentially grind. I would get materials, sell them, and buy better gear.
There are also cool upgrades found throughout this massive mine. They make Steamworld Dig easier to play. Speaking of easier to play - plan your path in Steamworld Dig. See you have to go down, and back up. Water is important, and so is light. Those two facets of Steamworld Dig can mess you up if you let them drain to nothing. And of course you can not let your health go to zero either.
Steamworld Dig is a much deeper game than I expected. There are cool people in the town that help players progress. I say people but everything and everyone in Steamworld Dig is robotic. Well the enemies are not robotic. In fact the enemies in Steamworld Dig remind me of post apocalyptic concepts. The deeper you go in Steamworld Dig the more cool and interesting things you will find.
I hope Steamworld Dig earns sequels in the future. Until that time I hope to hear Steamworld Dig is getting a release in the physical copy format. I know people that only buy physical copies of video games that would really enjoy playing Steamworld Dig. I should probably mention there is cartoon violence in Steamworld Dig in a variety of forms. Dynamite is my personal favorite tool. Just give it room when you light it.
