This Heist will be Rewarding, Prepare for Boarding in SteamWorld Heist!

Pros:
  • A truly unique story with tons of hilarious characters.
  • Great turn-based gunplay that even those that fear turn-based will love.
  • A fantastic soundtrack by the bots of Steam Powered Giraffe.
  • You can wear a cat in a hat. IN a hat! It's amazing!

  • The 3DS screen, even on the New 3DS simply can't project just how amazing the art is. I can't wait to see this on other systems.
