NotesAccessibility Notes

Knack II supports accessibility in the following ways:
  • Difficulty: There is a wide range of difficulty settings that adjust not only enemies but simplify routes through the levels. You can select a different difficulty at the start of each chapter. You can also turn on in-game hints for direction.
  • Reading: The main narration in Knack II is fully voiced and subtitled, although they need to be switched on from the options menu. They are white text outlined in black but without a solid background. There is other reading to do of small text on transparent background on the gadgets screen.
  • Controls: You can play with two players and pressing the R button warps you to the same location. Buttons and controls introduced with pop-up image of the controller.
  • Image calibration: Can set brightness and toggle HDR (High Dynamic Range). Can't turn off screen shake.
  • Audio calibration: Can set music, effects and voice volume independently.
