Summary

Knightin + is a basic dungeon crawler, solve puzzles and kill hordes of enemies as you find new abilities and loot. Coins drop and these are used to buy items. Most levels have many different routes and hidden areas. It all plays well enough once you get the combat down and learn the few enemy types. It does have an easy trophy list but the actual gameplay is fone for a chill game or when you can’t be arsed to put much effort in.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
