steamlands.gifJohnBDid Nitrome's original release of Steamlands not give you enough levels, weapons, and bosses to turn into piles of rubble? Then may the Steamlands Player Pack fill any real-time strategy-shaped void you have in your entertainment schedule! Nitrome has just released an expansion to Steamlands, featuring four brand new weapons and several dozen new levels to complete, all crafted by fans of the original game.

This Steamlands expansion plays exactly like the original, putting you in command of a makeshift steampunk vehicle built from the very blocks of your destroyed enemies. Move the craft forwards and backwards and take aim with any guns you've managed to collect, working as efficiently as you can to break down your opponent's defenses and destroy the engineer's room within. When victory is finally yours, you get to salvage the pieces and weld them directly to your tank in any way you see fit.

Steamlands Player Pack also features Dev Mode, allowing anyone to tweak and create campaigns that could be featured in a future update. It's a little complex at first, but like the rest of the game, once you go through the tutorials and play around with it for a bit, it quickly becomes second nature.

The Steamlands Player Pack provides almost as much content as the original game, with the added bonus of some very creative player-made campaigns. It's surprisingly challenging, even for veterans, but it's just gentle enough to capture a newbie or two as well.

It's certainly very noisy... nice graphics, but gets tedious pretty quickly.

Dev mode doesn't seem to do anything, according to the video it should change that little tag to a pine tree but when I click Ok, nothing in the game changes.

@Tom: first click on OK to activate Dev Mode, then play, then Esc.
Afterwards I would recommend to click
"menu" - "Download Editor Help File" to understand the basics of the Dev Mode.

The Tag shouldn't change into a pine tree; In the tutorial video they use an older version of steamlands featuring a pine tree instead of a square tag. Nitrome had to change it due to copyright problems.
