Underrated Games of 2019
The SteamWorld series has long been offering various takes on the RPG series. With SteamWorld Quest, players this time are thrown into a world where card-based battles are the order of the day.
It’s down to you to build your deck, find powerful cards, beat enemies, and reign supreme in this beautiful steampunk-inspired world.
Boss battles are multi-layered and require thought-out strategies, but some of these do require the use of crafted cards that can take some of the fun away of developing your own strategy. Simply put, it won’t always work.
The often overlooked and, frankly, underrated element of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamesh has to be the vast deck-building potential it gives you. At the beginning of the game things start off simply enough, but as you expand your party, you’ll unlock even more cards with even wilder abilities that allows you to tackle enemies in different ways.
What makes it all the better is that SteamWorld Quest can be wrapped up in about 15-20 hours, making it considerably shorter than most other RPGs. That’s not a bad thing at all, though, as it never gets to the point of outstaying its welcome, and it’s highly replayable thanks to the ton of cards and card combos you can utilise in your strategy.
