Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon Combines Adventuring With Puzzling

Help Shovel Knight escape the Pocket Dungeon in this creative puzzle game.

Yacht Club Games revealed the next installment in its popular Shovel Knight franchise: Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon. The puzzle game will challenge players to help Shovel Knight escape the Pocket Dungeon by collecting keys, defeating enemies, and more.

In Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, items such as enemies, potions, and treasure chests will automatically fall from the top of the screen, similar to how pieces fall from the top of the screen in a game of Tetris. Players will be able to move Shovel Knight (or another playable character) around the game board to collect items, battle enemies, and so on.

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon will let you control more than 10 hero characters from the Shovel Knight franchise, with each having “a unique power and play style.” The game will also feature multiple modes, including a Story mode, a Versus mode that lets two players compete against each other, and more.

While Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon hasn’t been rated by the ESRB just yet, previous Shovel Knight games are rated E for Everyone, so we expect this one to be family-friendly as well.

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon doesn’t have a release date as of this writing, but it will be available to try at PAX East, which takes place in Boston, Massachusetts from February 27 to March 1.
