Prepare to sharpen thy shovel, we return to play Shovel Knight!
Today I checkout Shovel Knight, a great game by Yacht Club Games that was released this year as the result of a very successful kickstarter!
It’s clear that this game was inspired by the old classic SNES platform games, but utilises the power of modern engines and systems to get the best of both worlds! Gems like this don’t get created very often, the feeling you have when playing this game is truly authentic
Shovel Knight features a great soundtrack, nice graphics, good sounds and best of all: awesome gameplay. It’s absolutely a game that’s hard to master, which is also it’s charm. You’ll have to invest time to really complete these levels, especially the end-bosses can be quite though, fortunately there’s checkpoints to help you out.
In this game you play as Shovel Knight, a small knight that has a huge quest! He has come to this valley with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved Shield Knight.
Unique in this game is that he wields a ShovelBlade; a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!
