    Treasure Trove is packed to the brim with content and the different ways you can play through these games is wonderfully broad. Whether its co-op or solo, handheld or docked – it’s up to you. I don’t care. Just go play Shovel Knight.

    If you haven’t played Shovel Knight, Treasure Trove is an absolute must buy… and if you have, you already know that it’s a must buy.

    Shovel Knight is one of the best indie games in the last few years, and this is the best edition so far. It also works great with the Switch concept, so if you have the new Nintendo console and you haven't played Shovel Knight yet, you shouldn't miss it.

    While the original game was a fabulous romp, the Treasure Trove collection is more than worthy of investing some time into. Anyone who already has the original will obtain the upgraded package for free, but if bought separately, each of the three released campaigns should keep you entertained with great platforming that’s full of charm. With more stuff coming in the next year, the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is worth its weight in gold.

    Imagine in the glorious old times of NES that we'd have the chance of playing with a game that mix the jumping style of Ducktales, the cities from Zelda II, the map and secrets in the levels of Mario Bros. 3 and 8 enemies like in Mega Man, the magic weapons of Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania, and all the epic from the Sword & Sorcery Genre. All of them into the most complete Yacht Club Games creation.

    Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is practically a must-own for anyone who has just picked up a Nintendo Switch. The expected excellent platforming fun, enjoyable storytelling, and impressive art and sound of all three campaigns not only comes all packed together in one title, but also includes better accessibility than ever before on a platform the title feels made for.

    Sadly, I found later levels lost a lot of the game's early steam, as too much of the old "pixel perfect" platforming starts to creep in.

    Shovel Knight is a wonderful game on its own, but include the DLC it makes the game even better. In the main adventure you play as shovelShovel Knight is a wonderful game on its own, but include the DLC it makes the game even better. In the main adventure you play as shovel knight, a shovel wielding hero fighting against the enchantress. Personally I had an issue with the lightning mechanic of specter knights stage but that’s just me, though I did love the challenge. You can’t blow though the game, as it’s extremely fun to explore and get items and defeat enemies and the game rewards you for these things. Expand
