This Week’s Retro Platformer
Shovel Knight (PC, Wii U & 3DS, June 26th)
Shovel Knight looks and feels like a lost Capcom or Konami NES title. The game’s premise is summed up in its title — you’re a knight with a shovel. You can use to hit enemies, pogo jump like Uncle Scrooge and more. There are a lot of “retro” indie platformers out there, but Shovel Knight really takes 8-bit authenticity to the next level.
