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

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.

Shovel Knight is just what any veteran gamer’s inner child needs. Between the tight platforming, nostalgia-inducing graphics, and pitch-perfect sound design, old-school gamers need look no further for their fix. Younger gamers will appreciate the modern additions of checkpoints and Cross-save functionality, while hardcore gamers can simply smash those checkpoints and reap the rewards. It’s incredible to see a game that doesn’t just imitate the 8-bit era, but perfectly embodies it.

Shovel Knight is truly a game that lives up to the hype surrounding it. It’s amazing and frustrating in equal parts, and is absolutely well worth your time if you’re looking to a homage to the days when gaming was fun, simple and all about discovery and platforming. While there are a few small problems that could easily be fixed in a sequel they can easily be looked past, as Shovel Knight is definitely worth digging in to.
