A brand coming to Apple Arcade will surely appeal to all fans of old school games. Shovel Knight Dig brings the well-known mascot to Apple platforms, also in the Sig version, that is, suggesting vertical mechanics that will lead the player to dig into the depths.
The plot behind the title is one of the simplest: Drill Knight and his team of ruthless diggers decide to attack the quiet Shovel Knight camp and steal its loot, leaving the Knight with only one choice, which is to use his trusty shovel and start digging to catch them.
In the game, the user will be able to meet new friends and enemies, visit unique places and choose the appropriate equipment to complete the mission, in an enterprise that will lead you to the bowels of the earth. Almost as in the platform, the player will be able to attack and make his way with shovels, except that he will not move in horizontal ways, but in vertical ways, in a new adventure to be explored.
At the graphic level, this adventure recalls that typical of the brand, that is, it proposes pixel art graphics, in loud colors and accompanied by a really good sound. This time, the world of Shovel Knight is more fluid in animation, also thanks to the image steps, rotation, and parallax effect. The levels are randomly generated so that each mission is different from the first.
