Steamville is a steampunk adventure point-and-click with logical-skeletal elements prepared for AND, PC and iOS platforms, which is a continuation of the positively acclaimed and award-winning Steampunker production. The game is the second title in the output of the Warsaw-based Telehorse studio, founded by Mariusz Szypura - graphic designer, producer and alternative musician of the band Happy Pills. Unlike its fully paid predecessor, Steamville is distributed as a freemium application.
The plot of the game continues the motifs started in Steampunker and is set in the same universe, although somewhat narrowed down to the title town of Steamville. Players take on the role of Vincent, who fights against the cosmic robots attacking the city, equipped with extremely dangerous flame throwers. Fortunately, this time our protagonist is not only able to rely on his own wisdom, because he has electric bombs and shooting towers at his disposal.
The mechanics of the game clearly differs from the previous part, mainly due to the presentation of the action in an isometric perspective. The character's way of acting has also changed, and the game itself focuses on logical elements rather than on the plot. The action of the game has been divided into four levels of eight boards, and each of them is a kind of a separate puzzle. Our protagonist's task is to move around the streets of the city and find objects necessary for the development of the plot. The whole difficulty is that the hero is followed by ubiquitous robots, which we have to deal with with with the electric bombs mentioned above. A load of this type can't destroy the robot, but it can immobilize it for a while, activate a nearby shooting tower, or turn on a mechanism that allows Vincent to get to another location. As the game progresses, the level of difficulty of puzzles increases, and new obstacles appear on our way, including flying robots.
Steamville graphics on the AND, PC and iOS platforms have been maintained in an atmospheric, steampunk style. Apart from showing the action from a completely different perspective, the main difference is the fact that the graphics of the game is this time fully three-dimensional. The game is again accompanied by a soundtrack performed by Silver Rocket - a musical project of Mariusz Szypura himself, with whom artists such as Artur Rojek, Tomek Makowiecki, Kasia Nosowska, Ania D¹browska and Monika Brodka have cooperated over the years.
