Treasure Trove Edition features

Treasure Trove is a complete Shovel Knight package. This edition features all the campaigns released to this day.

Setting

The base campaign named Shovel Of Hope tells the tale of a vigilant Shovel Knight. He got separated from his lover, Shield Knight while exploring the mysterious Tower of Destiny. Devastated from such an event, the Shovel Knight lives alone, until the mysterious Order of No Quarter emerges. The Knight can cope with all of this and abandons his boring life in order to save the valley he lives in and enter the Tower of Destiny once again.

All other campaigns add details to the story of the base game.

Gameplay

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove resembles a classic 2D sidescroller. It was heavily influenced by the Ninja Gaiden-era platformers. The main objective of the game is to finish all the main stages. The players unlock new levels by completing a certain number of previously unlocked ones.

The game features numerous boss encounters, most of which appear at the end of the stage and serve as a finishing point of the level. This makes the defeat of the boss need to be achieved to complete a stage.

On his way through the levels, the Knight can stumble across several treasures which can be used for purchasing equipment upgrades.
