Armed with a stabby multi-directional blade imbued with the magical power of fairies, you guide the titular black knight through some classic 2D side-scrolling platform action inspired by Eastern European animation and Kamishibai, otherwise known as 'paper drama'. Wait! Come back! Black Knight Sword isn't just a weird curio. It's a dark and gory fairy tale from the brainpan of Suda 51 and a throwback to the tough side-scrollers of old, with leaps of faith, inch-perfect platform jumping and plenty of heart collecting.
