Shovel Knight Treasure Trove Online

Shovel Knight is a 2D side-scrolling platform game with an 8-bit graphical style. In the game's first campaign, Shovel of Hope, players control the eponymous protagonist as he collects treasure and fights against the Order of No Quarter.[7] Shovel Knight's primary means of attack is his shovel, which he can either use to attack enemies head-on and dig up treasure, or aim below him while jumping to bounce on enemies, similar to the pogo jump from DuckTales or the downward thrust from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.[14] By finding a salesman named Chester hidden in most levels, the player can purchase secondary items known as relics that can be used with a limited supply of magic. These include long-range projectiles, gloves that can punch through dirt blocks, and a locket that makes the player invincible for a brief period.

Aside from the main quest, which involves fighting through each level and defeating the boss at the end in order to progress through the world map, players are encouraged to collect as much treasure as possible. Treasure can be obtained by defeating enemies, finding chests, digging through the environment, and finding note sheets that also unlock music tracks. Any money earned can be spent in villages on various items, such as upgrades to health and magic, secondary items sold by the salesman, and armor and shovel upgrades that grant bonus skills. While the player does have infinite lives, dying will cause the player to lose some of their money, though the player can recover it by collecting the flying sacks that appear around where the player last died. For an added challenge, players can also choose to destroy checkpoints to earn more treasure at the risk of being sent back further should they die.

Shovel Knight Showdown does not feature any kind of online play. This is a massive disappointment. A fighting game released today needs online play because that's how a lot of fans enjoy the content. If one doesn't have siblings or friends in the area, they're probably stuck playing alone. Although the story mode offers difficulty even on normal, it's never the same as battling a real person. An online mode with leaderboards would have been great for the many who play competitively. It's hard to test one's shovel skills with nothing to compare them to.

Shovel Knight Showdown is an enjoyable fighting title for fans of the original game. Battles require strategy in knowing what each character can do. The story mode offers a challenge, and there are plenty of unlockables to achieve. All in all, it's a great title from the platformer fighting genre pioneered by the Super Smash Bros. series. The only major downside is the lack of online play. There could have been a lot of fun comparing how one uses their shovel or shield around the world. Because of that, Shovel Knight Showdown will probably only be enjoyed by core fans of the original game. However, as a free update to Treasure Trove, players get a very fun title featuring the cast in a battle format. 041b061a72
