What is Coward Knight: A Stealth Adventure?
Coward Knight: A Stealth Adventure is a game for Android, iOS, PC, Mac, Linux, and OUYA that’s inspired by Metal Gear Solid, The Legend of Zelda, and Ghost ‘n’ Goblins. The goal is to make it through 48 levels not being seen by enemies, stabbing enemies in the back, avoiding traps, collecting rupees, and making it to the goal in the shortest amount of time.
The story is a classic tale of a kingdom in peril, a kidnapped princess, and only one knight able to set things right.
It was a dark and stormy night… ehm… no, that’s another story! In a kingdom where princesses are regularly kidnapped by evil masters, heroes begin to run out. On an unlucky day the King’s daughter is kidnapped too! The King spends many days trying to find a young and strong man who is able to rescue her, but he only finds a little knight named Coward, with neither experience nor physical prowess! The King gives him two choices: rescue his daughter and get a huge reward or die! So, Coward looks at the tower, clenches his teeth and gets ready for his new adventure! Will he finally become a true Hero?
Why should you support Coward Knight: A Stealth Adventure?
I like games that are approachable and easy to learn, but with depth so that there’s a lot to do. Coward Knight has a simple premise, but there seems to be many different ways of playing and getting through each of the levels. While it is a stealth game, you can attack and defeat your enemies, you’ll just have to know when to walk to avoid detection and when to run to get away from danger. The different types of traps (thorns, worms, swinging axes, bombs, floor spikes) have to be avoided, perhaps by using magic power-ups (super speed, invisibility).
I also like the variety in the four locations—from underground to a tavern and then outside in a garden to the castle where the princess is kept. Enemies are also varied—from the common guards and floating eyes that will call all nearby guards if they see you, banshees that terrify you with their screams, worms that yell when you step on them, to floating jellyfish that can see all around them.
With the simple controls, nice-looking graphics, a good soundtrack, and the varied locations and enemies, I think Coward Knight: A Stealth Adventure will be a fun game to play no matter what platform you own.
