It is a mobile port AND clone of Super Crate Box (the game is free on Steam - so look it up if you haven't already). I know this is enough for a lot of people to dismiss this entirely. And I don't blame them, titlescreen, menues and everything look very "tablet".

However, Muffin Knight also adds a few tweaks to Vlambeers masterpiece that make this "clone" more playable in my opinion. The most important feature is a hitpoint-system (permanent extra hits cost upgrade-points, you can take up to three hits). Allowing for some mistakes to be made compared to the insta-death-terror of SBC. Also, you have a greater variety in your movement (double jumps) as well as more varied level-layouts here (multiscreens, with teleporters and such) and towards the end of the game they even start mixing up the base gameplay (help Santa deliver gifts, reach the top of a giant beanstalk, fight a giant bossmonster) which I found quite entertaining.

The level-up system (allows you to upgrade the various characters and buy perks) and grinding for XP is more miss than hit and the most obvious reminder of a dark IAP tablet-past. But there are XP-bonus built in for doing well on the tougher levels, so overall balancing seems to work out. However, the game is so solid - all that leveling business feels unnecessary.

Anyway, it's quite an addictive little game. As every stage has it's own unique kind of rhythm (along with quite nicely done graphic sets) and once you get into the flow of things it really is plain fun. You know, that classic arcade-ish fun. Talking about arcades, I actually think this wouldn't feel too out of place in a 90ies arcade along-side games like Snow Bros. or Bubble Bobble.

Technically, as mentioned before, the menues and stuff are pretty meh! and have that mobile-look to them (you know, big, colorful buttons and "funny" fonts) - but the actual gameplay looks really nice. Big, cartoony characters, decently animated and good looking backdrops - good sense of color too (with the exception of the Windmill-stage, dat cyan!). Music is a mixed bag, there are some really amazing tunes (love the graveyard!) and also some very annoying tracks (too short, loop too soon, are annoying as hell in the process). Sound-effects are good, but the granny voice-over sounds REALLY amateurish and cheap. Also, I found that in some places hitdetection is kinda iffy and analog-controls on my 360 pad didn't work properly - had to go digital. However, once I changed the controls it was pretty good and feels really precise.

Overall a really nicely done timewaster. Not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but has a very, very solid core that will provide a couple of hours of 90ies fun. Gotta say, a pleasant surprise.

Great palate cleanser, super addictive qualities throughout. Sure, its your standard 2D platformer affair. Not dissimilar to a Mario Bros. Single screen kill/collect top score based fun. But this game has a lot of heart. You collect muffins. That's endearing in itself. Every time you collect one, your character switches which may seem jarring at first until you become familiar with all the attacks. Then it becomes rather strategic.

One of the more surprising aspects is every second spent in game feels like you're earning something. XP is earned for collecting muffins and killing enemies that goes into a player level which awards you with skill points which can be spent on each individual creature. New levels can be unlocked either through collecting a specific number of muffins in one run or overall player level. Perks and extra lives are also available for purchase.

Respawns are super fast, controls are tight. The characters are adorable and silly (see Sumo Panda) All these features lend themselves to something familiar, easy to enter and super hard to put down.

Just one more run. Then I'll stop.

Muffin Knight is a game that looks catered towards toddlers, but is a perfect example of the idiom 'don't judge a book by its cover'. Despite looking very innocent and easy, 'Muffin Knight' is a surprisingly challenging game - especially if you're attempting to 5-star it.

With a fantastic single-player and multiplayer co-op, Muffin Knight is a fast-paced game full of enjoyment, challenge and charm. Whilst the plot is simple and the graphics are subpar, Muffin Knight excels in its gameplay and can become dangerously addicting. The music is catchy, the controls are fantastically responsive and the added perks and upgrades really add to the game and genuinely make a difference, saving a very repetitive formula from going stale.

My only complaints would be its lack of more settings, there isn't a lot of availability on how to customise the settings to best suit your PC, plus the menus are pretty awful if you plan to use a controller. Whilst I would highly recommend a controller for its movement flow and simplicity, I would suggest opting for a computer mouse when roaming through the menus.

The randomisation for the characters can be frustrating, especially as some of the starters are incredibly weak until you upgrade them. Whilst upgrading doesn't take too long, to go from a strong character such as Cyclops or Grizzly, to a ridiculously weak character such as Monkey or Dragon, can really be annoying. Whilst mentioning characters, it is worthy ot note that the order of the unlockables seems very odd as well - whilst only a minor nitpick, I did feel very disappointed that the final unlockable was one of the worst.

Overall, Muffin Knight is an incredibly fun and simplistic game to play. The added perks really help the game to feel different every time, and the challenge bar is at the perfect level for this type of genre. Whilst the plot is weak and some of the power-ups are far worse than others, due to the upgrades and points, you can quickly improve the weaker characters and make them some of the strongest. Muffin Knight is great fun with friends, but is also very enjoyable as a solo game - so go forth and find those muffins!

Some people compare this to Super Crate Box - yeah, yeah - but first off Super Crate Box is imo UGLY... Muffin Knight is MUCH better looking but what really makes this game for me is that it's co-op! The co-op play is super fun! VERY addicting
Worth every cent!

The one game where it's ok to grab your partners muffin!

How many arbitrary achievements can we fit into one game?

Other than that, game plays like Super crate box, you collect pickups which in turn change your type of attack (character). Game was originated in iOS, and great for short bursts.

Did already I mention how tedious the achievements are?

So I was doing my homework and all of the sudden I got bored so I thought I would take a 10 minute break break, I remembered I just bought like 30 games from the winter christmas sale so I went through them and this one looked fun.. Then I played for what felt like 10 minutes which was actually 3 hours later.. This game is addicting and fun worth every penny! Don't let me disclude time consuming.. So Z is the shoot key and I think both my finger and the Z key are done for...

11/10 would suffer again

Recommended! This game is so goood. Plays well with both keyboard and gamepad. Great sense of humor. Nice visuals and sounds. Smooth gameplay. Plus...you have a chance to be Muffin Knight!

PORS:
- you're Muffin Knight: you collect muffins and slay mean monsters
- 10 maps to play on, each of them is different ;)
- good graphics
- good sounds
- good music tune
- great voice acting :)
- works well with both keybard and gamepad (gameplad found and working well, which is unfortunatelly not so obvious for many Steam "full gamepad support" games)
- quite many characters to play
- you level up quite fast
- light RPG features: you get XPs and make your character(s) stronger
- has both singleplayer and multi (online)
- good for short sessions
- fun factor :D
- reminds me "POOF vs the Cursed Kitty" a lot, which is great, great, great game!

CONS:
- none, IMO
- maybe that not all maps are equally good, but on the other hand there is plenty to choose from...
- "POOF" is better ;)

Never known such an easy concept game to be very frustrating.

It's a fun game, but no one really plays it anymore and then to boot some of the achievements are broken.

Which makes going for them very annoying and difficult to do, wish the dev's of this game would fix the broken achievement's.

I had a blast with this game. So cute and easy to play, and gets really intense at times. It's pretty much flawless besides some minor control issues. Five stars!~

I want to like this game, I really do. It is very similar to Super Crate Box. The biggest problem I have with this game is the controls are very unresponsive at times, and often results in your death. Super frustrating. As a result, I cannot recommend it.

Ignoring the fact that this is just a copy of another free game, this game is really just bad.
1. It still feels like a mobile game, and feels really unpolished
2. The weapons have a very unsatisfying feeling to it, it feels like all the weapons are weak and they have 0 knockback
3. The game lacks content.
4. It's more expensive than it should be. I can spot 2 dollar games that are over 5 times more fun than this.
Nearly everything this game has the free version outdo it, in art style, level design, and enemy design. Sure, some people might like this, but i'll scrap this off as an okay port of a free mobile game that doesn't deserve money.

Get the game on a mobile device. Not on PC. This is one of the laziest ports I think I've ever seen, seeming to have had no changes to make it more fit for a PC. There are no options for whether you could run the game in a window, you're stuck in fullscreen. Even if you used the Alt+Enter trick to put in in windowed mode, you better have a huge monitor because the game runs in like 123481596x123458712349 pixels. I have dual monitors, and it took both monitors to display the whole game in windowed mode. Don't get this on Steam. Get it on your phone. Actually, don't get it at all, get Super Crate Box. That game is free.

I do realize that I put absolutely no time into actually playing the game, but the limited options regarding window size killed the whole experience for me, because windowed mode is my preference.

Fun, but short game for the price. Gets repetitive after a while as the higher campaigns are the same and you can't keep progress which makes no sense.

Shameless and blatant rip-off of Super Crate Box (which is free). They didn't even bother changing most of the mechanics.

Crap game. Terrible mobile port. Controls are slow, which is disappointing in a game that relies of quick moves.

Really just a terrible rip off of Super Crate Box.
