Despite being a classic styled game it looks great on the handheld as well as on the big screen. It also plays very smooth and the controls are tight and responsive which is what you want from old school action platformers.
It takes me back to my old Metroid, Castelvania, and even Ghost and Goblins days but supercharged. I used to think I couldn't have fun going back to this classic style of game but Shovel Knight has showed me what I liked about gaming in the first place.
There is a lot of game here with the Treasure Trove and if you're longing for the days when games were equally challenging and fun, then this is easy to recommend and especially for the price.
Note that there is a suggested order to play these campaigns.
First: Shovel of Hope, where you play as the titular character, freeing the land from the evil grasp of the Order, lead by the enigmatic necromancer.
Second: Plague of Shadows, where you take on the role of Plague Knight who stops at nothing to gain power. This campaign acts as an parallel campaign to Shovel of Hope. While the level design and story can be seen as similar to Shovel of Hope, to call this campaign a rehash would be disingenuous. Plague of Shadows consists of a new story, new characters and new gameplay elements that make this game feel like a more in-depth and challenging version of Shovel of Hope.
Third: Spectre of Torment. A prequel to Shovel of Hope, you explore the haunting backstory of Spectre Knight. At the heed of the Necromancer to stalk the land to subjugate its people. New platforming and combat elements make this game both interesting and refreshing.
Fourth: King of Cards. Unreleased as of this review.
The shovel knight franchise is a fun series, thanks in part to it's originality and self-aware nature. Both challenging and absurd, the games are a blast for both the nostalgic and the new gamer. And with even more content being released soon, the game is a great deal!
