Steampunk tower 2 is a strategy action game published by Drageus games. It’s set for release on December 4th 2020 and will be available on all console platforms. Here’s a bit more-
Steampunk Tower 2 is a unique action-strategy game set in the alternative Steampunk universe.
There is a dragged-out world war with the enemy never seen before. Lord Bingham is coming back
to the world arena and he needs a skilled commander. There is a secret base hidden in the mountains
of Spain, with ginormous aircraft Carrier transporting the Battle Tower under your authority and
also a team of specialists who execute special assignments.
Nothing special in this department. But with that said ST2 does a great job of the steampunk vibes, with everything looking incredibly retro-futuristic. Not a lot of in game animations with most of the cutscenes and the base screen opting for simple images. That’s said everything looks great and really fits the steampunk alternate world vibe. When you do get an animated cutscene though it is a visual treat.
Audio much follows the same path with no voice acting for cutscenes but that said the audio fits in great and really adds to an immersive play experience. Simple yet effective!
Well thought out strategy games score big with me and ST2 is definitely ticking the right boxes. Battles centre around a tower and you have to place your turrets effectively in order to stave off waves of enemy troops. As you progress you learn to use special abilities and other elements of the game such as shifting turrets around to either reload or help other turrets hold back the enemy. Its a very engaging and addictive mechanic that really kept me hooked.
Enemies become more elaborate as you progress too, with foot soldiers all the way to huge mechanised steampunk spider like mechanical monsters. It is quite exciting and at times frantic!
Upgrade upgrade upgrade!
Base building is a big part of the game with upgrading allowing you more money and better weapons to help you through encounters with your foe. This will be familiar to most by now and after a little bit of getting used to itll feel quite familiar. Turrets can also be upgraded in various ways and new different weapons can also be constructed. Its also important to keep on top of your tower repairs too in order to be successful.
Steampunk Tower 2 is a cracking strategy game that has plenty of depth and enjoyment. If you love strategy games or tower defence then it’s certainly one for you.
