Hello New Grounders,

Welcome to our latest title, Knightfall - it's based on a prototype we started several months back and is probably best described as a "puzzle role-playing strategy game"; bit of a mouthful, but it's the best we could come up with. :-) It combines elements of Mr.Driller, Puzzle Quest, Rogue and Collapse, and the end result is a fairly fresh, original title we think.

The game consists of 2 modes, 3 difficulty settings, 5 areas, and plenty of fiendish enemies to do battle with. There's also a leaderboard for each game mode and 28 achievements for all you completists out there; the game remembers which difficulty level these were achieved on, so only when you've achieved "gold" on all of them can you say you've done everything. :-)

The basic premise is to reach the door on each level, grabbing the key along the way. You don't actually have direct control of the hero, so in order to manoeuvre him around the board you must drill away groups of 3 or more blocks of the same colour, and also rotate the board to change which way is "down". You can also vanquish enemies by coming down on them from above with your drill, earning you experience and gold. Each enemy attacks the hero in a different way, but you can learn something about each one by clicking on them before facing them in battle.

For all those wanting to know how to unlock each achievement, here's a quick breakdown:

"Death From Above" - Perform a 3 x combo
"Sir Grindalot The Wise" - Reach experience level "10"
"Difficulty? Nay!" - Simply complete the game
"No Logo Knight" - Don't buy anything from the shop!
"The Bravest Chicken" - Reach the final battle without killing anything
"Sir Dodgealot The Swift" - Complete game without being hit!
"Swords, No Sorcery" - Reach the final battle without using magic
"Merlin's Way" - Reach the final battle without attacking any monsters with the drill
"Nowhere Near Rock Bottom" - Complete game without using block switch tool
"Hoarder Extraordinaire" - Accumulate 10,000 GP or more
"Dashing Adventurer" - Complete the game in double-quick time
"Grandmaster" - Complete the game in under 300 moves
"Superboring" - Destroy 20 blocks in one drill
"A Clutch Of Magic Mushrooms" - Catch 3 Golden Mushrooms
"Last One Left At The Banquet Table" - Complete the game without letting your AP drop to zero
"Variety Is The Spice Of Death" - Destroy one of every enemy in the game
"Rainbows over Camelot" - Drill blocks in order of: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue
"Medieval Monochrome" - Finish a stage while drilling only one type of block
"Deadly Gentry" - Finish a stage with no enemies left
"Ghosts 'n' Goblins" - Kill 100 enemies in a single game
"All in one" - Complete the game in one sitting, without quitting or dying
"Monster's Munchbag" - Take damage from 3 or more enemies on the same turn
"Tiptoe Through The Turnips" - Complete the game without waking a Mandrake
"Honour Amongst Thieves" - Complete the game without having an item stolen
"Collector's Edition" - Buy one of every item in the game
"Fowl Play" - Kill 10 or more chickens in a single game
"Fall From Grace" Fall from the top row of the board to the bottom
"Relentless" - Reach Stage 50 in the Purgatory Quest

I think that's just about everything - if you have any questions or feedback then feel free to leave a message here or PM us. Thanks for reading and we hope that you enjoy the game!

I've never seen a game as original as this. Awesome job!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Perfect game!

This game is trully great! Its unique and original, fan and entertaining. It is a smooth mix of puzzle, rpg, strategy and action so every one can find something for him in this one. It has achievments for replay value.
Three five best things about this game are:
1) There are a plenty of new things that appear only in later stages of game so you do not lose interest as you progress. There is also some random very rare items and enemies, that you may not see the first time you play and notice only when you replay this game.
2)Ye oldie English! Trough I am not english native speaker, and unable to repeat it, I adore, this old literally beutyfull style. It fits perfectly to the medieval setting and your avatar.
3)The music! With every next of the 5 stages in game music becomes all the better. In hell stage the music is so beutyfull that I actually took a pause from playing just to enjoy the beutyfull sound.
4)Overall mood created by music, graphics, gamepace and the superb language.
5)A powerfull menacing final boss. In my onpinion, mandatory requerment for any trully great game. nice to find one in a puzzle game!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Everything is awesome in this game!

The graphic style is fantastic, and every aspect of the gameplay fits perfectly.
I was tempted to quit at one point, but the desire to find new creatures and items pushed me onwards.
A game which can do that is a good game indeed.
I absolutely loved the sprites.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Absolutely epic!

And I didnt even try the harder difficulcies yet ...

I never hit the limit for draws during the game. Maybe it would be a bit more challenging if they would increase by 1 for 4 tiles destroyed, by 2 if 5 tiles destroyed ... but only started with like 5 draws? Not sure though, this would require testing.

Keep it up! This one s amazing :)
