Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (Series) Review
Posted: A year ago, last updated 8 months ago.
The main quest involves fighting through each level and defeating the boss battle at the end, during this you collect as much treasure as possible. Collecting items and gaining abilities grants access to more of the level. You can get treasure by defeating enemies, finding chests, digging through the environment, and finding note sheets that also unlock music tracks.
In some of the games in the series you control characters besides Shovel knight, such as: Specter Knight and King Knight. Shovel Knight Showdown has a 4 player local battle mode so you can compete against friends and family, similar to Super Smash Bros. This is something unique to Showdown that the other games don't explore as much.
