Summary

You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this valley with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save 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!

It’s difficult, it’s rewarding, it’s beautiful, it’s aurally-pleasing and it’s finally available. If you’ve got a PC, a 3DS or a Wii U, you owe it to yourself to check out this amazing game. The only downside is that newer gamers might be turned off by Shovel Knight’s difficulty, but for those willing to dig into the challenge, a treasure of a game awaits.

Shovel Knight is an action packed thrill ride through the past that brings us all of the quality and style from the good old days, while giving us something that is truly unique in it’s own right. Fans of trying something a little bit unique should give this one a chance, download it now, you will dig it, trust me.

A fun action platformer that remains incredibly frustrating by taking a few too many cues from Castlevania's jerkiest moments, Shovel Knight is satisfying and infuriating in equal measure. It's also a damn fine callback to the days of yore in a world where callbacks are a dime a dozen, and rarely this well done.
