Believe it or not, but Shovel Knight is a love story. The Shovel Knight's story begins with him reminiscing about a lost loved one, his partner Shield Knight. When the pair was adventuring, she disappears as they hunt for a cursed amulet. Years later, the Tower where his this story began once more bristles with life -- dark forces gather. The Enchantress has raised an army of her own and the Shovel Knight is the only one who can save the day.
Stage to stage the Shovel Knight will battle enemies with his melee shovel slashes and leaping attacks. Movement must be precise and measured, allowing for Yacht Club to create very well planned levels and difficultly with intent. As the Shovel Knight defeats each boss, they provide a new power which allows the knight to access new areas of the game. Of course, each power also proves strong against certain enemies' weaknesses as well.
Shovel Knight is a game everyone will dig.
