Sidescrolling platformer RPG with steampunk flavor

Almost every geek I know admires the steampunk aesthetic and vaguely wishes s/he dressed more in that way, yet no geek I know actually does so. Perhaps I'm kicking it with the wrong crowd. Monster Robot Studios' Steam Punks is a sidescrolling RPG adventure that might let you live out your dreams of steam-powered futuretech without shilling out for a tin fedora.

You are Elite Enforcer Dunns Calhan, on a mission to take down the brutes of the Bowler Gang (yes, wearing the eponymous hats) and retrieve the stolen contraption. The action is akin to Mega Man X and other classic SNES games, with sprawling levels inviting exploration. You'll upgrade your steampunkish weapons along the way, from basic pistol to hook shot to mortar-blade to the legendary Alchemy Gun. Masks give you power upgrades, and various enchanted equipment can boost your power as well.

The graphics are pretty good, retro-pixeled with plenty of attention to detail. The game gets hung up on controls, though, relying on on-screen buttons imitating those on old-school controllers, which just doesn't translate well to mobile. I really wish moving about felt more satisfying, because I'd love to explore all the worlds to the fullest.

Monster Robot Studios' Steam Punks dabbles in a genre rich with possibility, but misses the mark when it comes to the controls.

    It won't even work on my new Galaxy Note 3; worked on my old LG Optimus L9, though. It was still buggy, but it worked. They pull this game from the market, IMO.

    Can't get past first level since it glitches at the first train cart. If I happen to get past it, when I die I get stuck back in the same cart. When it does this the train becomes whole and I can't get out of it. Please fix. I paid for a game not a useless glitchy game. Reinstalled on my note 3 and the game is still garbage. I really wish I can get my money back on this useless garbage of

    Way too glitchy. The game fell apart after less than a minute of play.
