Summary

Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It's 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!

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

Probably one of the best retro-inspired games around. It's an homage that manages to surpass its inspiration where it counts. This game is deep, replayable, daring, and addictive. Highly recommended for anyone who needs some pixel thrills to capture their imaginations and get their fingers moving.

Shovel Knight continued the trend of incredibly well crafted and well received indie titles in its release last year and is every bit as fun as it was then. Inspired by numerous classic games, Shovel Knight still manages to dig up its own distinct identity that makes the game worth playing again and again. While the game is essentially the same this time around, only seeing the addition of a Kratos boss fight, it just means another segment of the gaming community has the opportunity to play this fantastic love letter to the 8-bit era.

Quirky, endearing, challenging and wholly entertaining, Shovel Knight offers a slice of old-school platforming action at its best. Fans of the genre should consider this title essential, and anyone else that feels like a break from the myriad of multi-million pound developments being released left, right and centre should seriously consider giving Shovel Knight a try. You never know, you just might love it!

When we reviewed Shovel Knight at its initial release back in June 2014, we were amazed by its impeccable design, rock-solid mechanics and loving homages to classic games. All of those aspects still ring true on PS4, and Yacht Club Games has without a doubt successfully replicated one of 2014’s finest experiences on Sony’s flagship console.
