Deceptively simple but great fun to play and addictive as hell. My only real issue is that it's over a little too quickly, between 6-10 hours depending on how much you explore. It's got pretty good replay value too and I don't think you'll find too many other games as good as this in this price range. Definitely worth picking up!

Steamworld Dig is a bit like a cross between Motherlode, Spelunky and a metroidvania. Motherlode because the game owes a lot to the concept of digging down into the earth, mining minerals and then selling them on the surface for gold to buy upgrades, which then enable you to dig deeper, take on more enemies etc. Spelunky because the main levels are procedurally generated, and the general feel of your character is quite similar to Spelunky (so much so that playing one after the other causes quite a bit of confusing pressing the wrong buttons!). Metroidvania because there are various caves that are set puzzles scattered throughout the main mine shafts, and completing them gives you upgrades that allow access to previously inaccessible areas. It's a compelling formula polished to a fine sheen here. There's a lot more depth (ho ho) to this game than first appears. I definitely dug it. In fact I'd say it's oresome. Ok, ok, I'll stop.

The biggest negative I'd levy against the game is a distinct lack of difficulty. Dying is definitely a risk, but taking damage feels somewhat arbitrary. After I became accustomed to the controls and mechanics, which was relatively quick, I rarely felt especially challenged.

That said, it's a delight to play. The aesthetic is clean and beautiful, the sound (and music) is wonderful. In the roughly five hours it took me to complete, I never really had a dull moment. The sense of momentum is palpable.

Very fun and definitely worth the low price.

Enjoyable little adventure that sees a character digging ever downward in search of gems and better equipment. Varies gameplay elements with new content constantly.
