About this game

Developer: Yacht Club Games
Content Rating: Everyone


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!

But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost. If you love games with perfect platforming, beautiful art, infectious music, crazy bosses, humor and levity, and real heart… Shovel Knight is for you!

With it’s superb controls, fluid action, and overwhelmingly charming presentation, Shovel Knight is the total retro-lover’s dream package. It takes tons of influence from classic sidescrolling past, but carves out enough of a unique identity to stand up on it’s own and not be remembered as Retro Reference The Game. If you like old-school at all, this will be right up your alley.

Con el mismo espíritu que los clásicos de hace más de 20 años, pero también con gran personalidad propia, Shovel Knight se ha convertido por méritos propios en una sorpresa con mayúsculas. Su fantástico diseño de niveles, los emocionantes combates contra los jefazos finales y lo depurado de su sistema de control son solo una pequeña parte de esta joyita de estilo retro que no deberíais perderos.
