Are you ready to delve deep into its hidden locations?
Previously released on Steam to critical acclaim, indie game publisher Monster Couch, in collaboration with steampunk specialists Telehorse, have now released Steamburg, the puzzle adventure exploration game on Nintendo Switch. Offering a combination of unique gameplay and compelling steampunk visuals. Steamburg challenges you to play the role of Professor Vincent Cornelius Moore. Unarmed, you must fight the robots that invaded the city of Steamburg, with your only available weapon consisting of small electro-bombs which lure out the robots and stall their progress temporarily.
With these limited tools at your disposal, you can create strategies to deal with these robots permanently such as luring them towards or making them chase you to collide with a Tesla coil. While these concepts sound quite simple at first, it can quickly become addicting as robots can appear in larger numbers and at a much quicker pace. In addition to its gameplay, narrative elements are also of great importance in Steamburg, with some of the narrative elements being directly connect with gameplay. Players can find letters and photos and discover the love story of Vincent and his fiancee.
If you are interested in checking out the game, be sure to head over to the Nintendo eShop and pick it up today for $4.99 / £4.49.
