About Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight


Shovel Knight is a side-scrolling platform game developed and published by Yacht Games.

The main goal of the game is to progress through the world map while collecting as many treasures as possible. All the money that the player earns can be invested in different items, from health upgrades to bonus skills. Even though the player is immortal, dying will result in the loss of some money. If the player completes the game a whole new one opens up, in which the enemies are more difficult to kill and more likely to kill you.
