The Week In Games: Yay, More Shovel Knight

The Week In Games: Yay, More Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight might be everywhere, but I can’t be mad about it. The pixel art hero is back again in a brand new game. This time, however in Shovel knight Pocket Dungeon, the tough shovel-wielding warrior has to solve puzzles to proceed. I assume with a shovel, of course.

The month is halfway over, Christmas is almost here and so you’d expect the number of cool-looking games releasing this week to be pretty low. Wrong! Between stuff like The Gunk, Trash Sailors, that new puzzle-focused Shovel Knight spin-off, and even a relic of the past with a Wii U release, too. Trying to play some of these games as quickly as possible so I can possibly talk about them in my Game of the Year list is going to be tricky, but I’ll give it a shot.
