Shovel Knight was already one of our favorite games of the last decade.
The Shovel Knight Treasure Trove is one of the best values in games today.
Shovel Knight Dig is coming in the next year or so to provide even MORE Shovel Knight platforming excitement.
Yacht Club announced even MORE Shovel Knight today during their Yacht Club Games presents presentation ahead of PAX East 2020. Their announcement? The adorable block dropping puzzle adventure Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon.
Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon follows the adventures of Shovel Knight as he is led on a quest by the mysterious new character Puzzle Knight!
Pocket Dungeon is a block dropping puzzle game so objects like keys, treasure chests, potions, and other objects fall from the top of the screen. While this is happening players slide Shovel Knight around the playing field picking up items and attacking monsters.
The puzzle element really shines in the combat. When Shovel Knight bumps into an enemy they each lose a life point, but if like types of enemies are adjacent to each other, then all of the enemies in that clump take a point of damage. Every step on the playing field ends up being a careful dance as you have to take out groups of enemies in between pickup potions to restore health using potions.
The is a bold new direction for Shovel Knight, but I’m pretty excited about the little bit we’ve seen so far.
