Knight Saves Queen takes the most cavalier character from chess and gives them free rein over their own game. Here, the knight finally gets the chance to show that he doesn’t need an army to win the war, he can simply do so by a few clever moves and jumping over people.
In Knight Saves Queen, you do literally what the title says. The game consists of a grid where stand a range of enemies surrounding your queen, You, the knight in shining armour (seated appropriately on a white horse) must move carefully in order to vanquish the villains.
You can play as a male knight or a female one and the distinction is quite subtle. The character design is cute and even the level map is pretty to look at. The graphics make the levels look like a tabletop game come alive and the enemies look suitably menacing.The game is easy to pick up and understand because it builds onto a game that almost everyone knows the basics of. Moreover, there is none of the waiting that chess usually involves because the strategy involved takes lesser time to come up with. There are seventy levels and seven different settings that you will encounter in the game. The imperfection in the game deals with the lives system. You can only play a certain number of times at one go and this might break your flow right when you started enjoying the game and immersing yourself in it.
The game has a fair share of advertisements but no more than the average. The soundtrack is pleasant and keeps you company through all those levels of problem-solving.
While not an epic adventure involving knights at the same scale as Monty Python and the Knights of the Holy Grail (there is no singing about spam), Knight saves Queen is not far behind.
