The Steam Engine is a splicable non-solid steam foreground block which was added as part of the Spelunkorama! update on May 2, 2016.


When fueled with a Nuclear Fuel, the temperature of a Steam Engine will increase by 100 degrees.

A Steam Engine will continuously generate steam power to its left or right (depending on the direction it faces) until its temperature decreases below 500 degrees.
