A FUTURISTIC KNIGHT’S TALE Fallen Knight is a futuristic knight’s tale that lets players take on the role of a Knight of the Round Table. Play as Lancelot or Galahad the 50th, descendants of the legendary knights from King Arthur’s tales, and face off against unique enemy heroes; each with a dark past of their own. Expect a Dark Souls-esque challenging experience coupled with a fast-paced sword action gameplay that will punish players for every little mistake, and reward generously with every victory. NOSTALGIA FUELED PLATFORMING Enjoy nostalgia fueled gameplay that players have come to know and love, but with unique combat systems such as Lancelot’s “Parry & Disarm” or Galahad’s “Assassinate”. When playing as Lancelot, the Honorable Knight, killing should be a last resort, disarm your enemies and parry their attacks as you clear level after level. As Galahad, the elite Assassin, assassinate your enemies swiftly and ruthlessly. INTENSE BOSS BATTLES Take on the formidable bosses of The Purge who stand in your way from protecting Neo Utopia and the information you're sworn to protect. Each boss holds their own challenge, their own trials to overcome. Are you up to the challenge and live up to your reputation as a “Knight of the Round Table”? LANCELOT’S PATH As Lancelot, the Honorable Knight, Fallen Knight allows players to also choose the way they play the game. There are multiple endings, which are determined by the actions each player takes. Players may choose to kill their enemies or skilfully Parry & Disarm their enemies, exhibiting the mercy and honour of a Knight of the Round Table. How you play leads you to discover different endings of the game and story. GALAHAD’S PATH As Galahad, as an Assassin from the Knights of the Round Table. Players will take an alternative route through the story and help Galahad save Neo Utopia from The Purge. ‘Galahad’s Path’ brings rogue-like gameplay to Fallen Knight, where players only have “one life”. If players fail, they will have to restart from the first stage so be careful!

There's a nice central idea to Fallen Knight, and offering players two vastly different play styles is a good twist. Sadly, the host of problems that suffuse the game from beginning to end will put off all but the most determined or masochistic of players.

It’s clear that love has been put into the making of Fallen Knight, what with its attractive character designs and duo of campaigns, each with their own twist. It’s just a shame that the gameplay doesn’t quite hit the mark. Once you’ve unlocked a decent range of skills you can have more fun with Lancelot and Galahad, but even then the clunky controls and awkward parry system will frustrate.

A super fun 2D action-platformer with a unique twist on a classic story. Even for someone who plays a lot of games like this I was still challenged and really enjoyed the unique addition of being able to parry and disarm the enemies instead of just killing.

Fallen Knight could have been a lot of fun, but its inability to master the basic necessities means that it's hard to recommend in its current form. A Hollow Knight-style platformer with parries and counters needs to have the tightest controls possible, and Fallen Knight should be avoided until it is brought up to speed.
