For Shovelry!
« on: 30 Jun 2014, 19:31 »

Has anyone else been playing Shovel Knight? Cause it's amazing!

It has that nice retro platforming feel, but it's really fun, exciting, and even a little challenging.

Thanks to game grumps I picked it up today.  In a weird way it reminds me of mega man.

Same as LeeC, I couldn't resist it even though I have a thesis to write. I'm halfway through already, very much enjoying it. It knows how to do retro right.

Get it from GOG if you have the chance.

Looks like that that game has it in spades then.

You dig puns, huh? Well, there's two characters in the game whose sole purpose is to deliver puns (although one of them is kind of a stick-in-the-mud) so you won't be disappointed.

I just beat the final knight before the Tower of Fate yesterday (that level was a bitch) but it seems I missed out on getting a new power. Let's see if I can find it this time.

Also, I got the gold suit of armor. Took 90% of my gold but it was totally worth it.

I've been watching the Game Grumps playthrough and I do want it.

I couldn't find music sheet number ten, so I looked it up, and it turns out I didn't miss a secret wall in one of the levels like I thought. It actually involves using the fishing rod in a particular place.
