Read our review

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is the action-packed prequel to Shovel Knight! Take control of Specter Knight, servant to the Enchantress, in a quest to recruit a cadre of knights and create the Order of No Quarter. With his scythe and preternatural agility at the ready, he can glide across the ground, clamber up walls, and command an arsenal of curious weapons.

If he carries out his duties, Specter Knight may have a chance at regaining his lost humanity and breaking his chains of servitude. But what cruel tricks might the Enchantress have up her sleeve? Experience perfect platforming, world-class visuals, all new stage designs, new music, new bosses, and even meet a friend or two in Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment!

  • Climb walls, leap over gaps, and dispatch enemies with the Dash Slash. Specter Knight's playstyle brings motion and action to the forefront!
  • Collect and upgrade curios to unleash all new special attacks.
  • Test your scythe skills with Feats and Challenge Stages featuring Boss rematches, platforming challenges, and more!
  • Yacht Club Game's beautifully authentic style bridges the gap between yesterday and today. Design, art, and audio hearken back to the days of 8-bit.
  • Awesome soundtrack by Jake "Virt" Kaufman!
  • Balanced gameplay is a warm welcome to newcomers, and an old embrace for experts.
  • A somber tale told with a light touch to narrative with humor, levity, and heart.
  • Crazy bosses and lovable characters.
