    Steam Punks's review

    Published: 2014-03-12, by .

    Sidescrolling platformer RPG with steampunk flavor

    • High attention to detail in visual design
    • Tons of weapons/equipment upgrades
    • Steampunk flavor is delicious
    • Uncomfortable controls prohibit playing for long

    "Steampunkery and skulduggery"

    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.

    The first thing you see is an ad. Doesn't scale to 16:9 phone screen properly. Ugly fonts. Fairly boring slow paced action.

    However, there's some button lag going on. Pretty big issue. Also the game keeps closing on me. As such I've lowered my rating.

    Mighty No. 9 might want to say it's better than nothing but here we have a mobile game with a tiny fraction of their 4 million dollar budget, yet we have a spiritual succesor to Mega Man with an added Steampunk flair
