Plague of Shadows is fantastic. It’s taking what was essentially Castlevania and turns it into Megaman, but if you had a bunch of different settings to tweak on your weapons.

It adds new nooks and crannies into the levels that are built all around Plague Knights traversal mechanics.

I highly recommend Shovel Knight, and Plague of Shadows is just more to love :D
