    Steam Punks falls well short of the game that it could be, but its promise is still evident.

    A lot of love has gone into this Mega Man homage, as evidenced by its attractive 2D world, but the simple mechanics of running, jumping, and exploring just aren't of a high enough quality.

    Now, despite its numerous flaws, at heart Steam Punks could be a pretty good time. There’s a reason the universe has seen so much of Mega Man and his various reincarnations and spin-offs — its because those games are damn fun. Steam Punks wants you to have the same kind of fun, but lacks the polish or the technical power to elevate itself above the rabble.

    Comparing it to the real Mega Man X, I'm not sure what's more frustrating: how much it gets wrong, or how much it gets right before falling short. Nevertheless, I'd still recommend this over Capcom's own interpretation of Mega Man X on iOS. It was at least good enough that I wanted to stick with it through the end, warts and all.
