Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

Specter of Torment is a free DLC for the fan-favorite platform game Shovel Knight, developed by Yacht Club Games. This time, we play as a new protagonist, the titular Specter. The expansion takes place before the events of the base game. In terms of gameplay, Specter of Torment is identical to the base game, combining the elements of a 2D platformer, an RPG, and an action-adventure game. Once again, we observe the game from a side perspective. We explore some new fantastic locations, solve simple environmental puzzles, and fight the enemies. However, Specter has a new move set and skill set at his disposal. Unlike his predecessor, he can climb walls and other environmental objects, which opens new tactical possibilities for the players. The iconic shovel was replaced with a characteristic scythe.

This is Shovel Knight expansion pack.

The Plot

In Specter of Torment, we have a new protagonist to play as, the titular Specter. The game takes place before the events of the base game.

Mechanics

Gameplay mechanics in Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment are very much similar to those from the original Shovel Knight. Once again, the game combines the element of an RPG, 2D platformer, and an action-adventure game. During our adventures presented from a side-scrolling perspective, we explore new fantastical locations, solve simple envirnnmental puzzles, and battle the encountered enemies.

The new protagonist has a new set of moves and attacks at his disposal. Unlike the Shovel Knight, The Specter can climb on walls and other environmental objects, which opens some new tactical possibilities for the players. The shovel from the base game was replaced with a characteristic scythe.

Game Modes

Shovel Knight: A Specter of Torment for PlayStation Vita offers a single player campaign and a set of challenges designed with the Specter in mind.

Technical Aspects

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment uses the same engine as the original Shovel Knight. Game visuals resemble those from the ‘8-bt era’ games. Just like the base game, Specter also has a climatic soundtrack.
