Fans of classic platformers like Castlevania or Ghosts n’ Goblins will definitely enjoy the old-school gameplay, while everyone else will revel in the papercraft setting and dark humor that frames it. The game is a bit short, and you probably won’t come back to it once you’ve cleared its final stage, but it’s still a trip worth taking. Just remember to save often.
Inventive storytelling blends with some of the most bizarre sights you'll experience in a 2D platformer to make Black Knight Sword a real gem on the presentation front. It's deliciously weird from start to finish, but that weirdness only partially distracts from the repetitious, uninspiring gameplay and brutal difficulty. For a game that's so strongly unique, Black Knight Sword sadly bleeds out much of its charm through a few gaping flaws.

Black Knight Sword is the sort of game that, had it come out fifteen years ago, would have a huge cult following by now
