Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon review - once it clicks it really clicks - Eurogamer

From Eurogamer: "I love this. I love the energy and invention of Pocket Dungeon, a game that dared to shift genres, but then couldn't stop meddling, offering you dozens of ways to change the rules and mix things up. I could go on about the things I love: the enemy designs, the chunky, colourful graphics that seem stained with mimeo ink from some ludic zine. The versus mode! The hub - the hub! - that is filled with secrets and upgrade opportunities. Who knows how deep the tunnel goes? Or the fact that there's a Daily Challenge, that thing that all the special absolute best games have. A daily challenge! Play it once, gone forever.

All this and the tone itself. Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon is really, really tough. Even now I chug away at it, battling onwards as if eating my way through a vast block of cheese. And I love it. I love it all. It's brutal and inventive and head-spinningly clever. Yes please!"
