Mobile - Make off like a bandit: Steamworld Heist is on sale for a fiver

Make off like a bandit: Steamworld Heist is on sale for a fiver

By Ian Boudreau 09 Jul 2018

There’s no time like the present to pick up the turn-based tactical robot shooter Steamworld Heist. It’s currently on sale in the App Store for 50 percent off, at £4.99/$4.99.

We’ve talked up Steamworld Heist here before, and that’s because it’s one of the most enjoyable XCOM spinoffs to emerge since Enemy Unknown showed up way back in 2012. Here, the action is side-scrolling 2D, but the turns play out just like XCOM’s – you control a party, and each one has two moves to spend each turn. You can move, take cover, perform an action, and fire as you move your steampunk robot crew through ships controlled by greedy raiders.

Steamworld Heist’s biggest joy, however, is in pulling off trick shots that knock hats off your robot cowboy enemies (or pull your squadmates out of sticky situations). Instead of dice rolls, you do the aiming yourself, and you can arrange it so that bullets ricochet off ceilings and walls in order to hit targets behind cover. It’s all very charming and surprisingly deep, and you can read more in JP Marr’s four-star review.

You can find Steamworld Heist on the App Store.
