Over the years, pixel-art games have made a comeback on gaming platforms. People love pixel art because of its old-school charm and character designs. Here are a couple of new games that are the absolute embodiment of the pixel art trend.
As the title implies, you take the role of a knight carrying a shovel. As you play, you jump over your foes to kill them, and destroy the terrain with your shovel, while having an amazing time doing it! It sounds easy enough, but trust me, the game is a force to be reckoned with! If you like Shovel Knight, be sure to check out Rogue Legacy, too!
If you haven’t played Terraria yet, definitely check it out. You complete quests, defeat various bosses, level up, and attract NPC to occupy the rooms you’ve built. Developed by Re-Logic, the game is extremely popular and available on all the usual platforms.
