Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is the action-packed prequel to Shovel Knight! Take control of Specter Knight, servant to the Enchantress, in a quest to recruit a cadre of knights and create the Order of No Quarter. With his scythe and preternatural agility at the ready, he can glide across the ground, clamber up walls, and command an arsenal of curious weapons. If he carries out his duties, Specter Knight may have a chance at regaining his lost humanity and breaking his chains of servitude. But what cruel tricks might the Enchantress have up her sleeve?

That is really my only criticism. You’ll be doing things in Specter of Torment that literally make you say “wow” out loud. It’s a smooth, expertly-crafted platformer filled with heart. Again, it’s a free update to your Wii U and 3DS versions so there’s no reason not to play it. For Switch users, it’s absolutely worth experiencing, as is the rest of the Treasure Trove.
Specter of Torment is absolutely brilliant. It’s a slice of classic platforming action that puts a smile on your face from beginning to end thanks to its engaging gameplay and pleasant presentation. If you’ve bought a Nintendo Switch and fancy a tighter, more immediate experience than the sprawling Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Specter of Torment is the game you need.
What’s most surprising of all is the price. For owners of the original Shovel Knight, this new campaign is totally free. Specter of Torment can be purchased as a stand alone campaign for $9.99, but we recommend buying the complete experience. For $24.99, you’ll get the three available campaigns as well as upcoming King Knight campaign and any future campaigns. We can’t recommend it enough.
