Shovel Knight was a breath of fresh air to a video game environment deprived of great retroesque experiences. We had seen some releases like Mega Man 9, other indies and fun handheld games but nothing felt as fresh and innovative as Shovel Knight. I am going to give you my thoughts on the Wii U version of Shovel Knight but the main purpose of this article is to review the new Amiibo unlocked co-op function and see if it is the real deal or a bust!

The wild west…and robots! Genius idea. This gallery shooter from Natsume reeled me right in with it’s concept and the four selling points on the cover. This game is “The first Sci/Fi Western” ,awesome, an “Intense shoot’em up action” , pretty awesome, it has “True arcade feel!” awesomer! And is”2 player simultaneous” Awesomest!

Out of all the side scrolling beat em ups, we have played this one has to be one of the best if not the best. This is originally an arcade game but I have to say it has been ported very well. Awesome different characters, lots of cool moves, super tight controls, awesome environment and music.
UPDATE! NOW THE ARCADE VERSION IS AVAILABLE ON THE SWITCH ESHOP!
