1Making background


The game industry is like a swinging pendulum. In recent years, this

The pendulum is drawn to a nostalgic style, and the pixel art, super-difficulty and some ancient ideas have been re-innovated by developers. Yacht Club's Shovel Rider is a project in the pendulum direction, but it has not made mistakes in similar games. This game is not a game that wants to take advantage of this retro trend. The game is not just retro on the screen. Even the game feels exactly the same, making this game the best retro-style game since Locke 9 and 10.

Shovel Knight is an excellent game that combines a lot of NES classic game features and is well-made. The game's gameplay, Boss and level design have all been inspired by Rockman. The beautiful world map of the game makes people think of Mario 3. The combat system is similar to the Donald Duck Dream Adventure. The town, the inventory and currency system, and the interactive NPC are the fusion of Zelda 2 and Shana, while the game's secondary weapon system is subject to Castlevania and Ninja Dragon Sword. Inspired by Biography. The real excellence of this game is not a tribute to the NES era, but he is drawing on the greatest games of the NES era.

What makes this game really great is that although the game is a game that everyone is familiar with, the game itself still has its own unique personality, artistic style, music and plot. This is not a simple imitation game. The game doesn't simply copy the creative ideas that have been used by those classic games. The game will cause the player to nostalgic for the classic game, but it is not just another "Rockman", "Super Mario" or "Devil City" game. This is an excellent game with its own style that makes it feel like it should belong to the great era 25 years ago.
