What is Shovel Knight about?
Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. Its a hot mashup of new and old! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. He wields a Shovel Blade: 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!
Shovel Knight is a very nice retro game with a high replay value that I can only recommend to anyone who likes short games or casual games, although it is also for players who like to spend more time with a game. Each level is built differently and offers different traps, monsters, scenarios (U-Bot, Volcano) Shovel Knight has a small but nice skill system by just buying skills. With the tons of successes, you can start every run with a new challenge. The game also offers a nice challenge mode that sometimes made me desperate but in the end was a lot of fun. You can also play this game with a Super Nintendo controller, which increases the retro feeling many times over. With Plague of Shadows the levels change discreetly and also the game principle changes, whereby the replay value is increased again. Bald 2 new playable characters will be added and I am curious how the story of these two will be.
