A Knight's Quest
Top Critic Average
I loved my time with Rusty in A Knight's Quest. While it clearly doesn't have the extreme level of polish of a Zelda title, it manages to capture the sense of exploration and progression of Link's earlier adventures and mix it up with a real sense of its own identity. The added emphasis on platforming creates an interesting fusion of genres but isn't without a few technical issues. That said, fans of classic 3D adventure games would do well to check it out.
A Knight´s Quest is a good game to younger players. The title presents a simple history with simple challenges. The graphical side is a little bit poor, but it can be a good choice if you want a classic adventure at a good price for a younger player.

A Knight’s Quest has moments of brilliance. I wanted to love it a lot more than I did. I feel like this template could truly be something special to fill a void these other consoles have without a proper Zelda clone. Still, it finds ways to annoy me at every turn.
This is a very enjoyable game, and I'm disappointed that a bug deleted my save. But it's got most of what I look for in action-adventure titles and there's a whole lot to like here, despite how bland and familiar it can be.
A Knights Quest is not a bad game, I just find it hard to recommend it in an overcrowded genre of adventure RPG's. Its quests are bland, its animation and graphics are sometimes off and its gameplay a bit fragmented and sometimes repetitive. Overall though it is fun and if you really want to play an RPG of this type then this game can be fun and rewarding, it's just hampered by its lack of uniqueness and anything to really make it stand out from other games of this type. It has a few small issues but these can hopefully be ironed out in the future.
A Knight's Quest brings a much needed light-hearted take on the action-adventure fantasy genre, with a genuinely funny sense of humour running throughout and plenty of world to explore. It's marred by a poor navigation system, inconsistent visual quality and an overall lack of polish. There's plenty of fun to be had on this quest, but there's very little to write home about when the Switch is full to the brim with similar titles that provide superior experiences.
I don't want to say A Knight's Quest is a bad game, it just isn't a good or even okay one. The best way to describe it is, think of the average person trying to draw something amazing. Even if I can visualize this amazing piece of art, what I end up with is a pale imitation. Without any hook, fairly ugly characters and pretty much a lackluster experience across the board, it's hard to see a reason to recommend A Knight's Quest, even if the biggest sin is really failing to stand out in any way besides unappealing visuals.
Sky 9 Games' first attempt at an epic adventure with A Knight's Quest doesn't quite hit the mark. I wouldn't call any of the game's mechanics or implementation broken, but things tend to feel uninspired. The light-hearted nature of the adventure is appreciated; however, the attempted humor in the narrative is more cringe-worthy than anything else.
Although it seems clearly inspired by The Legend of Zelda series, A Knight's Quest forms its own footprint. Despite a few minor setbacks, A Knight's Quest does a great job delivering a fun, light-hearted adventure. Its funny storytelling sets it apart and makes a welcome addition to the Switch library. Genre fans should certainly check this one out.
A Knight's Quest is very far from the games it takes inspiration from, lacks of personality and presents some combat system issues and bugs. Give it a try only if you are an hardcore fan of The Legend of Zelda series.
