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!

Cheers,

The Megadev Team.

My luck stat is in need

Oh wait you only made it an RPG in leveling up and items, oh and monsters. What about stats? Hmm... more drill power, Like the ability to hit monsters one block away? Like they can.

Oh plus like you hate to hear. The game is based completely on luck. There is no real need for difficulty settings because a level can be either a cake walk or ridiculously hard. I seriously beat the first level set in one move a piece. Which also left me without any gold.

So don't give me crap about bejewled or FF7 because Tetris is far superior, and yes you know what block is coming! Oh, my God. Oh and Cloud has teammates, and armor, and stats. So spare it and admit it.

It's all luck what enemies are going to fall, what blocks are going to fall, where the key is, where the door is, need I go on?
So yes it's a well put together game but the insane amount of luck needed to win makes it boring.
