Black Knight

Author Comments

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.

Great game. Just a bit disappointing, that there wasn't really an end point in the game, and it just repeats itself over and over again.

Childhood shit right here


This one's still a classic, just wish there was actually an end to it since it becomes pretty much unlosable once you're able to afford every upgrade and potion.

It's an old one, but still worth a few minutes of your time whenever you're bored. My only complaint is that eventually, no matter how well you do, the coin goal for the level will reach a 'No-Win' scenario, where even a perfect run won't get you enough to progress. It's still a charmer, though, even after over a decade.
