Shovel Knight a rejoint cette vallée avec deux objectifs : vaincre l'Enchanteur démoniaque et sauver sa bien-aimée.

Shovel Knight est un classique jeu d'aventure et d'action avec un gameplay génial, des personnages mémorables, et une esthétique rétro 8-bit.
Vous incarnez le chevalier Shovel (Shovel Knight en Anglais), un petit chevalier avec une énorme quête. Shovel Knight a rejoint cette vallée avec deux objectifs : vaincre l'Enchanteur démoniaque et sauver sa bien-aimée. Il brandit une épée magique, une arme polyvalente dont le maniement a été perdue dans les âges.
Toujours honnête et serviable, Shovel Knight est un brillant exemple du code de la chevalerie.

Néanmoins, entre Shovel Knight et sa bien-aimée se dressent un groupe de chevaliers crapuleux. Ces terribles ennemis, connus sous le nom de "The Order of No Quarter" (L'Ordre du "Pas de quartier"), ont été envoyés pour empêcher Shovel Knight d'atteindre l'Enchanteur à tout prix !



Gog:

Embarquez dans une nouvelle aventure aux commandes de Plague Knight, le maître alchimiste des explosions ! Vous découvrirez un nouveau personnage jouable, de nouvelles reliques, de nouveaux systèmes de jeu, de nouveaux boss, des modifications de certains niveaux et une toute nouvelle histoire !

Êtes-vous à jour dans vos cours d'alchimie ? Incarnez Plague Knight et accomplissez de nouveaux exploits !

Testez vos compétences en mode Défi. Vous y trouverez des tests de vitesse, des combats de boss aux règles fixes, quelques casse-tête... Et bien d'autres défis !
Lorsque vous terminez le jeu avec Shovel Knight, Plague of Shadows sera automatiquement débloqué ! Pour jouer avec Plague Knight, il vous suffira de créer un nouveau profil et de sélectionner Plague Knight comme personnage principal.

Shovel Knight est un jeu de plateforme et d'action au gameplay soigné, aux personnages mémorables et à l'esthétique rétro de la période 8-bit. C'est un savant mélange de neuf et de vieux ! Vous y incarnez Shovel Knight, le personnage éponyme, dans sa quête visant à vaincre la maléfique Enchanteresse et à retrouver son amour perdu. Son arme de prédilection est la Shovel Blade : une arme aux usages multiples dont l'art a été perdu depuis des siècles. Toujours prêt à aider son prochain, Shovel Knight est l'exemple même du code de la Shovelry : tranchez et creusez sans limite !

Mais de nombreux chevaliers corrompus s'interposent entre Shovel Knight et sa bien-aimée. Ces terribles adversaires font partie de l'Ordre des Sans Quartier et ont été envoyés par l'Enchanteresse pour empêcher Shovel Knight de l'atteindre. Si vous aimez les jeux de plateforme finement calibrés, les graphismes et les bandes-son aux petits oignons, les boss hauts en couleur, l'humour et les jeux faits avec amour... Shovel Knight est pour vous !

Shovel Knight est un jeu vidéo indépendant de plates-formes développé par Yacht Club Games. Initialement prévu pour septembre 2013, le jeu est sorti dans le monde le 26 juin 2014 sur PC, et à la même date sur Wii U et 3DS en Amérique du Nord. Il est sorti le 6 novembre 2014 en Europe sur ces plateformes.

Le jeu remporte le prix du meilleur jeu indépendant lors des Game Awards 2014.

Le 10 Décembre 2015 en Europe et le 8 Janvier 2016 en Amerique du Nord, la figurine Amiibo Shovel Knight sort. Elle permet de débloquer le mode coopératif ou compétitif, la fonction Custom Knight permettant de personnaliser l'apparence de son héros et la possibilité de faire du Level Up jusqu'au niveau 50. Cette figurine est exclusive aux consoles Nintendo (Nintendo 3DS et Wii U).

Scénario

Shovel Knight raconte l'histoire de Shovel Knight, un petit chevalier combattant avec une pelle, comme son nom l'indique.

Shield Knight, la bien-aimée de Shovel Knight, se fait enlever par l’Enchanteresse, une sorcière qui a corrompu avec sa magie tous les nobles (qui seront des boss) de la région. Shovel Knight part alors à l'aventure pour sauver sa bien-aimée tout en combattant des vagues d'ennemis avec effets diverses et variés.

Système de jeu

Shovel Knight est un jeu de plates-formes à défilement latéral. Le jeu propose des graphismes 8-bit afin de ressembler à des jeux classiques.

Le jeu reprend des mécaniques de nombreux titres NES comme The Legend of Zelda, Megaman ou Duck Tales. Après avoir terminé le premier niveau le joueur se trouve sur une carte du monde similaire à celle de Super Mario Bros. 3 qui permet d'accéder à divers niveaux, où se trouvent des villages ainsi que des niveaux standards. Dans les villages, il est possible d'améliorer son personnage en dépensant l'argent accumulé dans les niveaux, ou de jouer à des mini-jeux. Le but du jeu est de vaincre les « serviteurs de la sorcière » pour accéder à son château, pour cela il faut aller au niveau via la carte pour ensuite affronter le boss après le niveau.

🌍️ Wikipedia:

Shovel Knight is a 2D side-scrolling platform game developed and published by Yacht Club Games. Following a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, the game was initially released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U in June 2014, and ports of the game for OS X and Linux followed in September of the same year. Ports for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox One were released in April 2015. Shovel Knight is inspired by gameplay and graphics of platformer games developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The game achieved critical acclaim and won various awards.

Gameplay

Shovel Knight is a 2D side-scrolling platform game presented in 8-bit graphics in which players control the eponymous protagonist as he collects treasure and fights against the Order of No Quarter. Shovel Knight's main means of attack is his shovel, which he can either use to attack enemies head on and dig up treasure, or aim below him whilst jumping to bounce on enemies, similar to the pogo jump from DuckTales or the downward thrust from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. By finding a salesman hidden in most levels, the player can purchase secondary items that can be used with a limited supply of magic. These include long range projectiles, gloves that can punch through dirt blocks, and a locket that makes the player invincible for a brief period.

Aside from the main quest, which involves fighting through each level and defeating the boss at the end in order to progress through the world map, players are encouraged to collect as much treasure as possible. Treasure can be obtained by defeating enemies, finding chests, digging through the environment, and finding note sheets which also unlock music tracks. Any money earned can be spent in villages on various items, such as upgrades to health and magic, secondary items sold by the salesman, and armor and shovel upgrades that grant bonus skills. While the player does have infinite lives, dying will cause the player to lose some of their money, though the player can recover it by collecting the flying sacks that appear around where the player last died. For added challenge, players can also choose to destroy checkpoints to earn more treasure at the risk of being sent back further should they die.

Completing the game opens up a New Game Plus mode, which increases the overall difficulty of the game by making enemies tougher to kill and capable of dealing more damage, as well as limiting the number of checkpoints in a stage, though the player retains any relics and health and magic upgrades collected during their first playthrough. There is also a password system allowing players to input codes to unlock various cheats.

Plot

Shovel Knight's campaign

Prior to the game, adventurers Shovel Knight and Shield Knight journeyed across the world alongside one another, but while exploring the Tower of Fate, a cursed amulet takes over Shield Knight and leaves Shovel Knight outside of the sealed tower. Grieving for his beloved, Shovel Knight gives up adventuring and goes into self-imposed exile. During his absence, the Enchantress rises to power, spreading evil across the land. Upon hearing that the Enchantress has unsealed the Tower of Fate, Shovel Knight begins his journey back to it, hoping to find and rescue Shield Knight. In order to do so, Shovel Knight must fight the members of "The Order of No Quarter," who have been dispatched by the Enchantress to impede him.

There are eight members of the Order; King Knight, Specter Knight, Treasure Knight, Mole Knight, Plague Knight, Polar Knight, Propeller Knight and Tinker Knight. Furthermore, Shovel Knight's rival, Black Knight, attempts to keep Shovel Knight from reaching the Tower of Fate, but does not answer to the Enchantress. After defeating each member of the Order, Shovel Knight reaches the Tower of Fate, where he faces Black Knight again. It is revealed that the Enchantress is actually a dark spirit inhabiting the amulet that cursed Shield Knight, possessing her body. Black Knight, who held romantic feelings for Shield Knight but lost her hand to Shovel Knight, had been protecting her in an effort to keep Shovel Knight from harming her.

While ascending the tower, Shovel Knight unwittingly falls into the midst of the members of the Order Of No Quarter as they eat dinner. They demand a rematch, and Shovel Knight duels each knight one by one atop the banqueting table. Emerging victorious over them once again, Shovel Knight may help them up, reeling in the chain onto which the defeated knights are clinging.

Reaching the top, Shovel Knight faces the Enchantress and battles her. He manages to exorcise the evil spirit, turning her back into Shield Knight. After being separated from Shield Knight, the Enchantress transforms into a powerful specter, known as the Remnant of Fate, which Shovel Knight and Shield Knight defeat together. In a desperate final maneuver, the Remnant of Fate attempts to kill the two knights, but Shield Knight holds the attack at bay as Black Knight comes in and carries the wounded Shovel Knight to safety before the tower collapses.

Afterwards, a pre-credits sequence shows Black Knight leaving the unconscious Shovel Knight by his campfire and departing, fulfilling his promise to Shield Knight to save him, before showing the eventual fate of each member of the Order Of No Quarter. A post-credits scene shows Shield Knight, who managed to escape the tower's destruction, limping towards the campfire before lying down next to Shovel Knight as he sleeps.

Plague of Shadows

Running parallel to Shovel Knight's story, Plague Knight plots his own scheme, planning to steal essence from Shovel Knight and the other Order members to use as ingredients in the ultimate potion, capable of granting any one desire of its user. He is aided by several other characters from Shovel Knight's campaign, such as Mona the witch, who pursues alchemy in secret due to the rest of the world fearing and rejecting it.

One by one, Plague Knight steals each of the others' essences before moving on to the Tower of Fate. As Plague Knight obtains the Enchantress's essence and begins to finish the potion, Black Knight and Mona arrive and try to stop him. Plague Knight reveals that his intention was always to use the potion to win Mona's heart, but she confesses she already loves him. Plague Knight attempts to stop the reaction, but it goes out of control, creating a dark version of Plague Knight.

The real Plague Knight defeats the shadow and stabilizes the potion, but realizing he already has everything he could ever want in Mona, the two decide to use the potion to destroy the Tower of Fate. As a result, the villagers hail Plague Knight and his alchemists as heroes, finally accepting them. In a post-credits scene, Plague Knight and Mona are seen sharing a dance together in the laboratory.
