In one game: KnightShift!

In a mystical world beyond fantasy and imagination, where corruption and disaster go hand in hand, not all is as it seems. A dark adventure begins in the RPG part: divided into eight chapters of dungeons, rare treasures, very strange companions and gruesome opponents. Eight individually equipped characters are available to you in this action packed role-play. It is now down to you, the player to form your hero and help him to fame and victory.

As soon as Gallus has been freed he can get on with job of bringing Prince John back to his father's kingdom. Strategy begins here: with the support of your loyal subjects the fight against the powers of evil begins.

Good humor! It's a game for easy and relaxed playing! I am very surprised by its quality (not meant graphics ^^) for such a low price!

i got this from a giveaway and its really worth it. the major problem is that you can't play with big resolution, but it can be fix with this step ( I'm using windows 7 ):
  1. Start->Run->regedit
  2. Go to : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Reality Pump\KnightShift\BaseGame\Graphics\Setup
  3. Edit the "ShowAllRefreshRates" by double click on it and set the value 1 (default is 0 and this is not working)

This game is bad...but that special kind of bad that makes it fun to play with some friends while drinking or something. It has decent controls but hilariously bad dialogue. the characters all sound like Microsoft Sam and the there were times where every single word in an NPC's speach would end in the suffix "eth." If I had to explain the story of this game I would just say "thiseth iseth theeth adventureseth ofeth microsoft Prince John, Heeth goeseth arroundeth andeth killseth stuffeth."

A nice litle hack 'n' slash with a great sense of humour. It's not going to win any major awards in THIS decade but it still offers a fun little break from more highbrow titles. It should be noted that there is a slight problem with higher resolutions. The game will not run in full HD. 67%
