Just in time for Hallowe’en, Nicalis – in collaboration with FreakZone Games – has announced a new horror side-scrolling arcade game called Knight Terrors.
The game joins a multitude of new releases this month and launches on October 24th in North America and Europe.
An overview of the game has been provided by Nicalis:
- Knight Terrors depicts the horrifying adventures of a mysterious suit of armor known only as “The Knight.” Armed with a mighty sword and equipped with blood-red wings that allow flight, the Knight desperately races through the countryside in the darkest of the night, never stopping for any respite or consideration. He must face and vanquish a never-ending onslaught of bloodthirsty ghouls, flaming skulls and unspeakable horrors while jumping over spiked pits and flying through small gaps. If he takes three hits or allows three enemies to pass, it’s “Game Over.
- Knight Terrors goes straight for the jugular, engaging players immediately with simple two-button controls, retina-searing sprite graphics and frantic neo-classical chiptunes. Special effects like screen shaking and time stopping magnify the impact of every enemy interaction. Once you’re hooked, the game keeps pulling you back in with earned power-ups, multiple unlockable game modes and high score tracking. What’s more, the procedurally generated levels ensure unlimited replayability—it’s a different game each and every time you play.
Oddly enough, I’m getting a stark Flappy Bird vibe from the game, which you can judge for yourself in the trailer below. Will you be picking this up on October 24th? Do you think Super Mario Odyssey will dominate all other releases this month? Let us know in the comments!
