Next Free Amazon/Twitch Prime Game Now Available
SteamWorld Heist puts you in command of a crew of steam-powered space pirates.
Twitch Prime members--which includes anyone with an Amazon Prime membership--can get their hands on a free game. SteamWorld Heist is currently available for download right now. You can check out some of the gameplay in the video above.
SteamWorld Heist is a turn-based strategy game where you manually aim the guns of the robots you control, resulting in lots of skill shots and bullet-bouncing. You'll play as Captain Piper, with the goal of recruiting robot pirates to board, loot, and shoot your way through enemy spaceships in the steampunk-inspired world. Along the way, you upgrade your recruits by taking advantage of unique abilities, weapons, and stylish hats.
In GameSpot's review of SteamWorld Heist, Matt Espineli called it an "accessible strategy game with nuanced mechanics and systems that make its ever-shifting challenges a joy to play." He gave it an 8/10, and applauded its witty dialogue, tense combat, and deep mechanics that rely on skill over randomized dice rolls.
