This is the perfect opportunity to not have to dig deep, to dig deep.
Steamworld Dig 2 is among the best Metroidvania games on the eshop, can totally recommend that.
Currently playing Steamworld Heist and can also recommend it, both games are made with so much love while they do differ in difficulty. Dig 2 gets pretty easy at some point, but after its just so much fun to explore the environment and use all the skills and gadgets, that doesn’t matter. Heist on the other hand can get quite difficult but maybe my setting is just too high. It’s a very well crafted roundbased game that’s a perfect fit for a handheld and surprisingly long campaign.
Dig 1 is more good if you like the series so muc that you need to check it out. I personally think Dig 2 improves in every way and where Dig 1 clearly is an indie production where devs try out what happens when they combine digging mechanics with metroidvania concepts, Dig 2 feels so polished, it could easily be a Nintendo-owned franchise.
Dig 1 is only $3… that’s a steal if there ever was one. Dig in y’all !
The headline says “and even Wii U”- I have to laugh at that.
I have the first in my Steam library, but… it’s backlogged. I wonder if I may ever get to it.
