While the original game is a solid platform game reminiscent of a mixture of 8-bit titles from the days of the NES and the expansions following suit the whole package. As it now stands in Treasure Trove it is a brilliant retro platform romp that is full of charm and humour with characters who each have their own personalities and different moves. Personally platform games are not my go to genre. However Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has been an exception to the rule. While writing this review I wanted to check something in the game so I picked my Switch up to check something and a while later after completing a level or two I remembered I was meant to be writing and not playing the game. A sure sign of a great game if it sucks you into it and you totally forget what you were meant to be doing.

Though many have already been digging into Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows, Treasure Trove is a great reason to steel thy shovel once again with all-new features and a new campaign. A great addition to anyone's Switch library whether you already own it or have yet to experience such an amazing title.

Shovel Knight has proven to be one of those games that really just doesn't age. It's hard to believe that the title's been out for a few years now, but the retro visuals, outstanding music and challenging yet addictive gameplay allows it to hold up as time passes. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is the definitive version of this title to date as it pulls the first three games into a single package for the newly released Nintendo Switch, and the end result is as much fun as ever.
