Game Modes

Shovel Knight features four gaming modes:
  • Story Mode - You are Shovel Knight and your objective is simple - defeat the evil enchantress and save your beloved.

  • Gender Swap Mode- This mode features a character gender change with a slight change to the story line. The only question which remains, can you defeat the evil enchanter?

  • Challenge Mode - A comprehensive batch of challenge rooms featuring a variety of mini quests. Challenges vary from endurance oriented scenarios to time-lapsed endeavours.

  • 4 Player Battle Mode - A couch co-op game mode where up to four players can engage in several categories of multi-player modes. Friends can "settle the score" racing to the end of the stage, battle for items and gems or simply remain as the last man standing.
