I was a latecomer to Shovel Knight. Don’t ask me why because I don’t have a good reason.
In fact, I’m not sure if I would have purchased the game last week had it not been for the sudden and horrific realization that I needed a New Nintendo 3DS to play The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. After screaming, "Why Nintendo?! Why?” I came to grips with having to purchase Edmund McMillen’s masterpiece on Steam and I bought Shovel Knight instead.
As it stands, I don’t think there’s any point in reviewing Shovel Knight; plenty of great critiques have already been published and honestly, I can’t find anything wrong with the game; aside from the fact that I want more!
Keep on shovelling everyone and as of September 17th, concocting!
