Shovel Knight is out today! And if you saw Jason's excellent review of it, you'll know it's definitely worth your time. But how does it play? What does it look like?

Watch as I try to shovel, bounce and jump my way through Yacht Club Games' NES inspired masterpiece. Thrill as I go from checkpoint to checkpoint! Enjoy the scintillating 8-bit sounds of evil being vanquished with cold hard gardening implements!

Steel thy shovel!
