SteamWorld Heist for Wii U

The game, SteamWorld Heist by Image and Form International AB is one of those fun strategy games that you take turns moving each hero towards the enemy to defeat. In this game, you the hero, Piper is a robotic pirate that has a nice gun to destroy the enemies and gather up your crew of awesome pirate style robots, while playing the training round. However, the entire game theThe basic goal of the game is to shoot down the enemies and clear each stage. While you play through, it does get challenging and since you'll be asked to accomplish all types of missions and defeat all different enemies each time.
Since this is a game for the WiiU it allows you to easily touch the screen and view the entire location of your hero and surrounding. While the buttons allow you to move the entire crew during your turn, aim their weapons, shoot, and end your turn. I would play this  game for the 3DS as it first arrived on the smaller consoles before the WiiU. However, I find the WiiU to make the gameplay even nicer with the bigger screen and still has the same great gameplay! 
For this game, I think the best part is the weapons. Unlike many games that are strategy types, you don't have the ability to control the weapons and use them as you please. However, with the weapons in SteamWorld Heist, you are allowed to position the weapons and make some interesting shots to kill the enemy. This is one way to defeat and complete each mission, paying attention to the way you aim the gun and making not so many mistakes and more direct hits. Remember it's your team and you have complete control of each character and you need to be clever to defeat the enemies and complete each mission. However, if you are lucky enough to play through a few levels and earn some wonderful items, you will be able to upgrade your crew with stylish hats and weapons. 
What really sticks out to me is the detailed artwork of the backgrounds and the music that accompanies the game as it's a perfectly compliments the theme of the game. Plus, the colors are marvelous just as the gameplay is. I never minded for strategy games when you have no control of the weapon, just deciding what they do next. However, this one is something I can find myself playing often. You actually get to move the weapon, have full access to what the hero does to kill the enemy. It's up to you to angle it right or if nearby, shoot down the enemy before they get you. It's more entertaining and takes a bit of thought to destroy the enemies before you get killed!
Finally, this is a wonderful game that will give you hours of challenging missions. Each character is unique and comes with a strong powerful weapon. I think for those who love strategy games, enjoy robots and pirates would be extremely excited to play this game! It's fun for everyone and will please even those who love a challenge.
