Shona Gets To Shovel Knight, First Impressions

Shovel Knight was released by Yacht Club Games in June 2014 after a highly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over four times its original target.

Heavily influenced by classic NES games such as Mega Man and Ducktales, Shovel Knight is an old-school style 2D platformer that, for two years, I’ve heard nothing but good things about. The game offers a sprite-based art style designed to remind players of the 8 & 16-bit days of the 1990s with music and sound effects to match. It’s a love letter to classic gaming and I can’t believe I went this long without playing it!
