Welcome to Discarded Cartridges!
Discarded Cartridges is a monthly audio podcast with Brad Chmielewski & Chas Fries. Once a month Brad and Chas choose a mobile video game to play, explore and do their best to beat, then they get together in the studio to breakdown the game.
In the fifth episode of Discarded Cartridges, Brad Chmielewski & Chas Fries downloaded the game Shovel Knight for the 3DS. This game was originally announced on March 17, 2013 alongside the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund development, with a minimum funding goal of $75,000. The campaign reached this goal in late March and went on to collect a total of $311,502, fulfilling all announced stretch goals for additional features, by its end on April 13th. Then on June 26, 2014 Shovel Knight was released on the Nintendo 3DS.
Before getting into the review of Shovel Knight, Brad and Chas take a moment to chat about some of the other games they’ve been playing like Pokemon Diamond, Diablo, and Dustforce.
As they get into talking about the game they reference a lot of old games like Mega Man and Duck Tales. Shovel Knight is a challenge but not unbeatable. It’s a game that’s definitely worth downloading. Also, since the developers will be adding more content to it, it’s one to keep coming back to over time.
