I think Yacht Club Games have actually said that they consider the 3ds version of Shovel Knight the definitive version because of all the extra work they put in to make the 3d effect work as well as it does. https://twitter.com/YachtClubGames/status/1526658025016025088
I found it was hard but fair. Easier than Smb3 and mega man 2.
I guess at that price it's worth a punt. :D
Pretty old school I'd say. I find it easier on the 3ds, probably due to the d-pad, than on the Switch but it's still tough. If you can master the mechanics in each game you'll be ok but it takes a fair while. I found the bosses beatable it was more the platforming I struggled with but it's very playable and practice pays off
Is this game super tough?
