Post Apocalyptic Underground Adventure!

Knytt Underground is an atmospheric side-scrolling adventure title that has elements of classic titles such as Metroid and Castlevania, but adds a bunch of new elements of its own as well. But how does this title measure up against the heavy hitters of the genre? Well, let's find out!

Story, Gameplay, And Controls:

Knytt Underground is set in a post apocalyptic world where the entire population has escaped a catastrophe by living underground. The game doesn't go into much detail regarding the reason why until the end of the game and overall the story is just filler between missions. The gameplay is excellent as it uses the same floaty physics as Metroid and Cave Story with several unique elements such as orbs that can allow your character to rocket into the sky, soar horizontally to reach distant platforms, and more! You will be doing many missions during the game that will require you to fetch items and find people. There are many quests that are optional, but some are required to advance the story.

During the mid-point of the game you will obtain a new ability that will allow you to access areas that were completely inaccessible before so don't worry if you can't reach certain areas early in the game! The game is quite lengthy as well, though it might only take around 20 hours to beat if you want to 100% this game be prepared to spend over 30-35 hours with this title!

The controls in Knytt Underground are easy to learn and are quite responsive. You can use either the Gamepad or a Wii Remote + Classic Controller Pro and both options are good choices as both have good button layouts for this game!

Graphics And Sound:

The graphics in Knytt Underground were shocking at first! The game has a unique art-style that uses both dark impressionism art and photographic images of plants, mushrooms, fruits, rocks, etc. and as a complete package is visually impressive! Knytt Underground's visual style is easily one of the best we've seen in a Wii U eshop title that isn't a retail game! And it isn't just the graphics, the ambient sound effects and music fit the game so well to an extent we have never seen before, making this game a true masterpiece!

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, smooth controls, and an unmatched art-style and audio ambiance we can't recommend this game enough! If you own a Wii U and have a working internet connection and are old enough to play this game you should do yourself a favor and download this amazing title!

Score: 10/10

I've downloaded a lot of eShop games that I should've waited to go on sale before purchasing. I'd have quite a bit more money in my eShop account right now, if I had waited to by most of them.
