SteamWorld Dig (3DS)|
A great little game, this one. It feels almost like a cross-breed between Minecraft's Survival mode and the Metroid games. You're basically exploring open mines, looking for ore that you can sell to upgrade your equipment. Besides that, you can uncover caves that hide new abilites and items that make navigation and combat a little more interesting.
My first playthrough lasted 6 1/2 hours and that actually felt like the 'right' kind of length for a game like this. Much longer and the experience might have begun to drag a little. As it is, the game isn't meant to be a long one. Not only do the mines randomly generate each time you start over, but you're given ratings on how long it took you to complete, how much of the ore you found and how many times you died. Two features that'll add replay value when I do decide to return to it.
If you've got a 3DS, you should give this one a go.
