Inspired by the golden age of side-scrolling arcade classics, Horned Knight is a hardcore, retro-styled 2D platformer that doesn’t pull any punches. Play as a hero knight and use your sword to rid the castle of ghouls and undead lurking its dark halls. With intuitive controls and puzzle-like combat, Horned Knight emboldens the player to conquer unique pixel art obstacles with the support of generous checkpoints and an invigorating soundtrack.
Agility is key! One small misstep can lead to your demise in 32 pulse-pounding levels, offering various challenges from fireball wielding skeletons to venomous snakes, spike traps, pools of lava and much more! Tight controls make it easy to jump, air-dash or slash your way through an area, but advanced techniques like timed slashes or the jumping wall climb will require greater mastery!
Be sure to hold onto the hero knight’s heart pieces, as his life depends on it! Overcome gigantic bosses and uncover secrets leading to unknown paths to find more heart pieces. If your health depletes, it’s back to the last checkpoint for another chance to prove your worth!
