The game features a dark gothic aesthetic, with monsters like Orcs and Beastmen for you to fight. You carry a huge sword with you, with plenty of powerful moves to cleave your way through them.
It also uses a mostly-silhouette-based art style, so expect a lot of nice picturesque screenshots of your character almost entirely in silhouette against the game’s backdrops.
You’ll also have plenty of platforming, as the main character can do dashes as well as jump off of walls. Though the game is a sidescroller there’ll be plenty of segments where you’ll have to traverse vertically a la many metroidvanias.
The game was previously released on Android devices in April of this year. However, now iOS players can get in on the action too and pretend they’re Guts from Berserk.
However, those on Android can also pick up the game for free right now, seemingly as part of an offer to celebrate the iOS release.
Despite being a premium title, Shadow Knight still contains in-app purchases. The game does not currently have any plans for a console release.
The beautiful and bright world of Harmonia was land to live of Mortal races including Human, Undead, Orc, Spirit, Dwarf, Beast man, Elf, etc. But then one day, when deep desires arose, a tragedy struck that made everything in vain darkness, irony just because of a Guilty Favor.
To save the world of Harmonia from the shadow wars, as a Shadow Knight Premium, battle epic monsters, fight evil enemies to defeat the immortals of Darkness and bring back the light to Harmonia. Will you be that forceful Shadow Knight Premium?
