Ah, you're all going to love it. It's jostling with Dark Souls II as my game of the year so far.

As I remember, you thought DSII was a huge step-down from DSI, am I right? Wink Looking forward to this regardless.

Not a huge step-down, but a step-down regardless... but that's more a testament to DSI's brilliance than anything else. Balladeer

I will chime and say that Shovel Knight is pretty short - only about 5/6 hours - but there's replay value there if you end up really enjoying it. I'd bear that in mind if you're still on the fence.

DSII did have a different director who's been working on Bloodborne.

But on SK, I will be playing on Saturday at EGX. Hopefully I'll get plenty of play time with it being a indy people might be distracted by likes of SMASH.

The shortness isn't a surprise for me. I'm not expecting an indie title to be a twenty-hour epic. Just deliver fun in those 5h, that's all I ask.

Oh, you'll definitely get that. It was a very fun six hour experience, save for one stage which was more frustrating than fun.

I'll be all over this when it releases. I've also managed to not spoil any of the game for myself by watching vids etc.

Can't wait Smile

Finally we have it in our mitts, I absolutely love it to bits already & I've only taken down two bosses the thing that will hit you right away is how amazing the music is and the controls are really tight as well.

It'll probably have to wait til next pay day for me. Then it'll be the Wii U version, indie games barely get touched on 3DS.

It's a fine game but it is tough (next time read up on the controls before you begin, Zero Duh! ). My only other thought is "Medieval Mega Man much?!" It plays like a love letter to NES-era Capcom... which is a good thing. Grin

On the back of Drunka's recent music week, all I have to say is:

SHOVEL-DA SHOVEL-DA SHOVEL KNIIIIIIGHT,
HE'S DOWN-LOAD-ING RIGHT NOW!
SHOVEL-DA SHOVEL-DA SHOVEL KNIIIIIIGHT,
WITH A SHOVEL NOT A TROWEL.

Yay.

That's me finished it, absolutely superb game however I don't think I'm properly done with it as I might work through all the feats & my item completion was only 81%

Steel thy Shovel!

Blinking heck, that was quick! Admittedly I've not been playing it much, but I've only just beaten King Knight. I think I have unfinished business with it already, though: saw some passages I accidentally destroyed the routes to.

Not quick enough for the speed run feat though. Laughing (where you have to beat the game in under 1 hour & 30 minutes)

Seconding Balla's "Blinking heck" with a "Crikey"! You must have really enjoyed it to finish it off so soon. Like Balla, I've just finished King Knight (and am really concentrating on EarthBound...).

I'm happy to hear this is great. How's the difficulty: is it the "right" kind of difficulty? No memorisation of levels and bosses? I read about spike pits being instant-death and had bad memories of NES Mega Man. Please tell me it isn't like those games!
