Be an engineer SteamWorld Mining city! Smash houses and build homes for your steambot citizens, feed them and provide some rootin’-tootin’ entertainment.
An abandoned mine sits beneath your town, rumored to be filled with ancient technology that holds the key to escaping impending doom. Use the natural resources found above ground and the abundant ores buried in the mine to expand your city. Encourage new inhabitant levels to join the quest to dig deeper, discover untold riches, and eventually help them lift it off the planet!
As the city expands in all directions, new types of Bukharians find their way to the settlement–and their needs become ever more complex. To keep everyone content, you’ll need to make sure everyone is working hard.
Purchase items to enhance the efficiency of buildings. Keep the goods flowing up and down the mine by speeding up the miners with encouraging electric jolts. Or, just barter at the local train station and get what you need that way. It is up to you!
