2Awesome Studio has announced that it will release Horned Knight for PS4 on February 23, Xbox One on February 24 and Switch and PC via Steam on February 26 for $ 5.99.
Horned Knight is a challenging 2D platform and action game in which you need to overcome your fears, enemies and traps.
Horned Knight reintroduces the Golden Age of arcade gaming in a hardcore, retro-styled 2D action platformer that pulls no punches. Play as the hero knight, and use your sword to rid the castle of ghouls and undead lurking in the dark. Fitted with multiple levels, responsive controls, and puzzle-like combat, Horned Knight emboldens the player to conquer unique pixel art obstacles with the support of generous checkpoints and invigorating soundtrack.
In Horned Knight, calculated movement and agility are key. One small misstep can lead to your demise through 32 pulse-pounding levels, offering various challenges from fireball wielding skeletons to venomous snakes, spike traps, pools of lava, and much more!
Accessible and responsive controls make it easy to jump, air-dash, and slash your way through an area. Master the jumping wall climb technique and timed slashes to ensure your hero saves the greater realm!
Make sure to hold onto the knight’s heart pieces; his life depends on it! Overcome gigantic bosses and uncover secrets leading to unknown paths to find more heart pieces so that you can continue on your marvellous adventure. If your heart pieces deplete, it’s back to the last checkpoint for you to prove your worth, knight!
