GamingShogun.com writes, "Black Knight Sword is an M-rated, 2D side-scrolling platformer that conjures up not only feelings of nostalgia, but also a welcome sense of refreshment. While it may be your typical hack n’ slash title that follows an age-old, linear formula, this Grasshopper/Digital Reality title is far from average. It’s… odd, to say the least. Very odd – with Goichi Suda being a main collaborator on the project. From riding a giant, egg-shooting chicken to slicing up a gas mask-wearing spider, Black Knight Sword takes a shot at the dark, macabre, and downright silly. The result: A thoroughly charming and ridiculously-entertaining experience."
