Target Acquired: SteamWorld Dig 2

SteamWorld Dig 2, from Image & Form, picks up where SteamWorld Dig left off... Rusty has saved the steambots but has not yet returned to the surface, so his friend Dorothy goes looking for him. The new game improves on the original in almost every possible way, with an overhauled economy, faster navigation, and a larger and more complex world to explore. As in the first game, the player can upgrade his health and his ability to carry minerals, water, and fuel, but the new game offers dozens of additional enhancements that can be installed on equipment to allow players to draw minerals toward them from a distance, highlight valuables on the map, and even deflect projectiles. New equipment includes a hookshot that lets players zip quickly around the environment, and a jetpack that allows for free flight in any direction.

The game is now available for PC, Mac, Linux via Steam, Switch via eShop, and PS4 and Vita via PSN. Check our coverage here .
