  • Summary: The clock has stopped around the turn of the 19th century, and humankind has prematurely blown itself to bits. The remaining scraps are huddling in caves beneath the surface, and steam-powered robots have taken over the Wild West.

    PlayStation users can finally live Rusty's adventure too with a cross-buy SteamWorld Dig which is delightful on a big screen and even better on PlayStation Vita's portable OLED. Image & Form did not add anything new except Trophies but the game is still great on its own.

    The game is ultimately over far too quickly for its own good, but that's the sign of a truly entertaining game; I simply wanted more. I really can't see anyone not enjoying this, regardless of your tastes as a gamer.

    If you've already played it, there's no reason to replay it on PS4 or PS Vita. If you don't, the digging and crafting mechanics of this game will give you an addictive surprise worth considering.

    Who would've thought a indie game would save the day? I was feeling real burnt out by video games, my favorite hobby was starting to wane fromWho would've thought a indie game would save the day? I was feeling real burnt out by video games, my favorite hobby was starting to wane from me, so much so was close to finding a new hobby. Got this game from ps plus a while back and decided to check it out, didn't regret it one bit. For me and probably a lot of people, right away it has addictive gameplay, when I mean addictive, I mean farmville addictive, it shouldn't be as fun as it should be, but it is, the mining for some reason sucks me in. It feels rewarding grinding for money, and beneath the mining, is a decent and enjoyable plat former that I really liked. The story was pretty much exploring, that's it, and to be honest I didn't mind the lack of story or characters, the game was that addictive/good. The only cons is probably is that it's a real short game, you could probably finish this game in 2 hours if you're really good (as I finished it in 5, but got stuck at one part for a long time). However, I can't really complain because if the game was too long it would be too repetitive, which honestly I wouldn't enjoy as much as I did. Basically an indie game where everyone should check out, especially the on the go vita owners. Expand

It's a brief game, but the content here is good enough to keep you coming back to collect all of those trophies. It's often a pain to make your way back to the surface with your loot the deeper you go. The difficulty increases as you reach new areas underground and a death means a loss of your mined goodies (you can try to run back and get it). Luckily there are upgrades to help out.

    It's a great game. One that could have used some more content and easier way to make it back to the surface. Overall though the gameplay is unique and fun enough to make it recommendable. I wouldn't mind seeing some form of sequel for this in the future. More content for this type of gameplay would be nice.

    Western atmosphere, upgradable robots and lots of digging and drilling. If you like the sound of that, you won't be disappointed. It soundsWestern atmosphere, upgradable robots and lots of digging and drilling. If you like the sound of that, you won't be disappointed. It sounds like a crazy combination, but it works, visually nice, the gameplay is solid and it's entertaining enough for one playthrough. However that one playthrough was more than enough for me, despite being quite short, I don't feel the need to continue playing and there is no reason to do so. So in the end it's a nice little platformer to keep you entertained for a few hours, but don't expect anything more from it. 6/10 Expand
