Review: Protect Me Knight


Xbox LIVE Indie Game
240 MS Points

I have never really payed attention to the indie game marketplace on Xbox Live. However, for some reason I looked the other day and noticed an interesting looking game. Thus, I downloaded the trial for Protect Me Knight and fell in love with it immediately. It's retro style and gameplay hooked me from it's intro and I couldn't put it down.

Protect Me Knight is basically a defense game where up to four players (No online play sadly) have a princess in the middle that needs protecting. You have a choice between four different characters, a mage, amazonian, knight and ninja. Each character has different attacks and abilities. The knight is the basic all around melee guy, able to spin in circles and throw an axe across the field that bounces off enemies. The ninja attacks viciously fast, lays bombs that look like the princess, and can turn invisible when he blocks. The mage's attacks aren't too strong, but her fire ball can have devastating effects as it spreads. The amazonian is another vicious attacker and she throws a boomerang that can twirl around her as long as you keep moving.

Every enemy you slay grants you heart points, in which you can level up your character, level up a barricade, or use a devastating attack that will grant you some breathing room. This adds another surprising level in depth into the game that make you want to advance and see what new move you can unlock or see what your max ability looks like. This kept my friends playing as well, all making different choices as we went along,

This game is meant to be played with three or four players, that seems pretty obvious once you get past the first few stages. The game throws a relentless amount of orcs, minotaurs, dragons, blimps, centipedes, and armored lizards at you. There were many times where the screen was literally filled with enemies and we couldn't move.

So, if you are looking for a good old retro game that you can enjoy with some friends on a couch, this is an excellent indie game. Especially at only 240 microsoft banana dollars, you can't really go wrong with it. If I had to say which game is my favorite indie game, i would have to say Protect Me Knight. Yes, even over I Made a Game With Zombies In It.

About SuperMonk4Everone of us since 12:33 PM on 12.21.2008

Hey, I'm SuperMonk4Ever AKA Broheed AKA Shut Up Monk AKA Andrew. I have been a part of the Destructoid community since 2008. One of my good friends introduced me to the site where I started out in the forums. Meeting and playing with some new awesome friends, I knew I wanted to make Destructoid my internet home. I even tried to make the community a little better by helping out with Friday Night Fights on the Xbox side! I have made many good memories with a large amount of awesome Dtoiders that I will never forget. From being on a couple podcasts to going to my very first convention at PAX Prime in 2012.

I have stepped away from the community for a while as my personal life took hold of me for a while. I want to have that feeling of community once again and work again on my writing. So, I have come back. To those that haven't met me before, welcome.

I am currently managing Debatoid!
I also lend a hand to Friday Night Fights!
