I didn’t think I would find a DLC for a game more enjoyable than the actual full game, but I have been proven wrong with Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. This FREE (Hear that developers? FREE) piece of DLC for Shovel Knight tells us the ongoing in the background story of Plague Knight’s personal quest alongside Shovel Knight’s adventure as he attempts to create the Ultimate Potion by collecting the essences of the other knight bosses that you fight in the game.
To be honest at first the story seemed a bit simple and the gameplay had a horrendous learning curve however once I had figured it out I began to love playing as Plague Knight even more than Shovel Knight and the story became more complex and heartwarming as it went on. I am not ashamed to say that the ending gave me a bigger smile than I was expecting. If you’ve completed Shovel Knight but haven’t had the chance to try out this wonderful addon then you have absolutely no excuse, go out and play it right now! In the meantime I will be waiting for the next piece of DLC to come out so I can enjoy even more Shovel Knight!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
