The SteamWorld series of games has been with us for more than a decade, since 2010 when it landed for the first time on Nintendo DS with a tower defense of those that became fashionable with the arrival of the first smartphones and tablets like the iPad. The fact is that since then the saga has played an infinite number of styles, with radically different genres that now, with SteamWorld Build , reach their maximum expression.
Manage, manage and manage
The fact is that after starring in space epics ( SteamWorld Dig 1 and 2 ), turn-based strategy space games ( SteamWorld Heist ) and even another one with many role-playing elements ( SteamWorld Ques t), now Image & Form has decided to take a new turn . of a nut that we had never seen before, taking the universe of robots that move thanks to the force of steam to a place that has, at least within the PC market, millions of followers.
This is SteamWorld Build which, as its name suggests, will allow us to build and manage resources to maintain a mining facility at full capacity with the sole objective of finding rare minerals with which to conquer, as stated in its description. , the very space. Something that is not so crazy because already in SteaWorld Heist we were traveling through the stars aboard some dilapidated spaceships.
To achieve our goal in SteamWorld Build you already know what it takes: create worker robots, entrust them with tasks of collecting raw materials and start building different facilities to turn a settlement into a mining operation, capable of generating benefits and resources with which to continue expanding across the map.
