  • Summary: Hey there, humans. It's me, Carlton! Phoebe's most trusted friend... and coolest arm, if I do say so myself.

    Now, who's Phoebe, you ask? She's a talented inventor and programmer with a taste for the finer things in life and prefers to work smarter, not harder. Her mission: save up enough
    Hey there, humans. It's me, Carlton! Phoebe's most trusted friend... and coolest arm, if I do say so myself.

    Now, who's Phoebe, you ask? She's a talented inventor and programmer with a taste for the finer things in life and prefers to work smarter, not harder. Her mission: save up enough cash to finally move outta her parents' place.

    That's where I come in! Phoebe created me, her bionic arm and best friend, to help her achieve her goals. Not only am I brilliant, handsome, and funny, but I've also got a neat trick up my sleeve - I can take regular old floppy disks and turn them into these handy-dandy projections we call "Floppy Knights!" They're super useful for just about any task especially when it's time to throw down on the battlefield.

    With the help of our new buddies, the occasional odd job has turned into a steady side hustle... but things are getting a bit more intense than we bargained for! Bigger and badder monsters keep popping up and now Phoebe's not so sure about this whole "hero" role... but I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's chat about all the sweet stuff you'll get to do in the game!

    While it’s true Floppy Knights isn’t quite a perfect experience, it came damned close. Sure, I’d love a reason to play the game longer, such as DLC levels or even something like a level creator, but that doesn’t change the quality of what’s already here. Floppy Knights is a fun game with a well-balanced challenge, good variety, and lovable characters. Even better, the whole thing plays remarkably well with just a mouse, though there are other controller options as well. So if you enjoy tactical mayhem and are looking for the next best thing, be sure and add this one to your Steam library.

    Floppy Knights has a clear mechanical core and executes it well. The tactical and card puzzles of the levels are well-designed, with plenty of scope for experimentation and moments of surprise. Making progress can be surprisingly hard, given its cute presentation, for players who don’t examine enemy capabilities and prepare potential moves at least one turn in advance. But the core concepts are not innovative in any meaningful ways. The narrative space does what it can to add reasons to move forward but, despite their bubbly nature, Phoebe and Carlton don’t have much depth. Rose City Games understands the mix of genres it is working with but needs to take more risks to stand out in an already crowded space.

    Floppy Knights is a charming experience that brings something unique to the table, even though it doesn’t reinvent the wheel for either of its genres. I do wish there was a little more meat to the experience, and despite the charming writing the story simply lacks a strong core. Despite that, however, it’s a journey that’s well worth taking, especially if you’re a fan of tactical games or deck builders.

    Highly replayable and addictive, even though it makes you tear your hair out sometimes.

  1. It may at first seems like a simple card battler, but Floppy Knights evolves into a meatier game the longer it goes on. There’s tough fights aplenty in the satisfying tactical battles with monsters of all shapes and sizes, and the challenge maps require you to plot your every move carefully to succeed. Rose City Games’ venture is just really easy to get along with, through its caring protagonist and welcoming art style, and never crosses too far into becoming a tiresome Saturday morning cartoon. Floppy Knights is a really enjoyable tactical card game that offers more the longer you spend with it, and it’s a joy to experience.

    Just not very fun or funny. It's alot of bad dialog. The game play gets hard fast and you don't really have the deck to play. It's kind justJust not very fun or funny. It's alot of bad dialog. The game play gets hard fast and you don't really have the deck to play. It's kind just get lucky make the right moves and hope for the best or restart the entire level to beginning. No saves or checkpoints. Expand
