A Knight's Quest
That A Knight's Quest is being sold on the eShop at all is ludicrous. Combat, enemy design, the camera, the save system, and the script were all in desperate need of more time. Sky9 releasing the title as is, is simply downright embarrassing. Beyond the lack of polish and the frequent bugs, this is a title that ignores 20 years of conventional game design philosophy, and massacres itself in the process. Few have managed to mangle the basics of 3D combat so badly. Play anything else. A Knight's Quest is one of the worst games of 2019.
A Knight's Quest has a good foundation, but it relies too heavily on a borrowed identity and suffers from technical issues and a bit of tedium.
In the end if you want something a bit deeper on the combat side look elsewhere but if you’re fine with a big world to explore and simple combat mechanics consider taking on this quest.
A Knight’s Quest is the video game equivalent of diluting the last dregs of ketchup so it lasts longer. Maybe it’s just me, but I’d rather have a small amount of tasty sauce than drench my entire plate in red water.
On top of that, the writing constantly had me chuckling to myself. There is an incredible amount of charm and character to A Knight's Quest. I'd strongly encourage anyone who thinks they can get past the technical and combat issues to give A Knight's Quest a try. While those issues are substantial and may turn some off, there is an amazing game resting just below the surface.
I absolutely loved my time with A Knight's Quest.
In A Knight's Quest we start from a good idea but it does not seem that anyone has measured the times you walk or if giving so many swipes to a single worm is fun.

I was surprised by A Knight's Quest: I didn't expect the game to be so big. The world is a bit static at the beginning but later on it convinced me with big areas, enough to do and a good design. The protagonist learns step by step and you unlock more to do as you go. There are some technical flaws, bugs and not every quest delivers a clear indication about what to do. The storytelling is also very simple - however, I enjoyed Rusty's journey.

Overall, A Knight’s Quest is a great throwback to the first days of 3D adventuring upon the PC and both Nintendo and Sony’s platforms for the time. Even if there’s an issue with the speed in which you can travel around the lands, there’s a great balance of gameplay and combat elements alongside the nostalgia that it imbues as Rusty tries to save the lands from the issues that he set into motion.
