Shovel Knight: a love letter to Nintendo

Shovel Knight, the 2D Platform game funded on Kickstarter, is like a love letter to Nintendo. Not only does the game feature original 8-bit graphics, but the color scheme used adheres to the Nintendo Entertainment System's original color palette and includes visual touches such as parallax scrolling.

If you aren't 100% sold on taking down the Enchantress and her evil Order of No Quarter in true retro fashion, there's a fantastic review by USGhere AND I managed to go back in time to snag this VHS tape with helpful hints and tricks for beating Shovel Knight. Can you dig it?

Shovel Knight is now out on the 3DS, Wii U, and Steam!
