Take on the role of a haunted set of spooky armor in Knight Terrors, an endless runner where you will run across a darkened world, vanquishing your foes and occasionally taking flight with crimson red wings. The pixel-style graphics and chiptune music hearken back to classic 8-bit titles while adding in some more modern conventions and gameplay. Take a look at the Knight Terrors Switch Announcement Trailer to get a feel for what the gameplay will be like:
The trailer for Knight Terrors showcases an aesthetic reminiscent of titles such as Super Ghouls & Ghosts.
Players can sustain a maximum of three hits before the game ends. Furthermore, they must allow no more than three enemies to make it past them, so any strategy of avoiding combat altogether is a no-go for this particular title. (After all, you wouldn’t be much of a murderous suit of armor if you didn’t kill almost everything in your path.)
There’s more to Knight Terrors than basic endless running gameplay; players will be able to unlock power-ups, additional game modes, and high-score tracking. The game’s levels will be procedurally generated to ensure that no two playthroughs will be the same. You’ll have to contend with the enemies on screen as well as a number of environmental hazards that will come along your neverending path.
No price for Knight Terrors has been announced as of yet. The game will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop on October 24, 2017. Be sure to head on over to the developer’s website to check out the latest information about their games.
