Steamworld Heist Turn-Based Strategy Game Coming to Mobile

Steamworld Heist, a 2D strategy game from Image & Form, is set to arrive on a plethora of platforms. Add “mobile” to the list. The game is a successor to the excellent platformer / digging game Steamworld Dig, which likewise features run-down robots scrabbling to survive a hostile environment. Look for Steamworld Heist sometime this fall.

There’s plenty of reason to get excited about this – SteamWorld Dig was much-beloved, and this is looking like it’s delivering a neat take on tactical gameplay by being side-scrolling, and using some skill-based elements, like aiming specifically at targets.

Finger Derpy Coming Later This Month

Thoroughbred racehorses. Such beautiful animals. Until you remove their legs and replace them with fingers. Finger Derpy is a tapping game that challenges you to keep your steed on a straight path by tapping your device’s screen with the proper rhythm. Needless to say, it’s harder than it sounds. Look for the game later this month.

If you can tap your fingers with the proper timing your horse will run straight. Tap out of sequence and your horse will run around as if trying to perform an interpretive dance of derpyness. There’s a party mode for four players, or a single player infinite horse race mode where your horse is trying to “escape” the finish line.
