Hear Ye, Hear Ye... The Queen needs a new swimming pool. The King calls upon you, The Black Knight, to go hither and bash as much taxes as possible from thy freeloading peasants.

Update: changed the game timer to be frame count based instead of 60 seconds per level so now people with slower computers won't be penalized.

This is my first venture into a "1-click" game. Simply press the mouse button to bash thy freeloading peasants. Yet it's got surprising depth, learn to make combos, wind up for super hits, earn extra points, use powerups properly, and compete for global high scores.

This game features some great touches. The King's a stuffy little tart, the Black Knight is a big loveable dummy, great animations and music (almost like watching an old cartoon), and don't forget the elevator music in the upgrade store :-) It just appeals to a core male emotion of hulk smash.

Created in association with Brain Jam. Our idea/guidance/budget and their art/programming.

Got a website? Your welcome to put The Black Knight on your site, un-altered of course.

Contrary to many opinions....

I actually thought the game was almost to easy. Maybe it's just me.
Anyways,

Graphics: 8/10 Very colorful and well done, atrractive to the eye. Would like to have seen some more areas, but overall good job.

Sound: 7/10 Music got a bit annoying, as did the smash bonus sound. However, the quality of all the sounds was good, and none of the sounds seemed too loud or quiet.

I only rate on those two, sorry if you want more.

Overall: 8/10 Fun game, but gets old after a while. Maybe more power-ups, or more characters. Also maybe add more music and sounds, as the sounds did seem to get a bit old after a while. The cash was a little too easy to get, as you can just charge up almost every time before hitting something. I did like it though, and would like to see more like it.
