I love this game on android. However on PC I'm shocked with the number of bugs. The panda's invincibility during an attack can fail, the head jumping perk can fail, the knight will use his charge attack randomly if you're just attacking quickly, the damage applied to enemies can be random as hell (for example a close range lvl 3 shotgun blast at point blank range will sometimes not kill a small enemy).

Without the bugs, this game has a few annoyances that can be overlooked. Some of the unlocks are just plain terrible, but you at least grab another muffin as quickly as possible and avoid that character. But with the extremely frequent glitches, this game is painful on PC. I bought this as I thought it would be way better to play with a controller....but now it's just a painful grind fest to get a decent number of achievements. Speaking of which....I had 97/100 kills with the monkey for that achievement, and I got about 40 kills with the monkey and it's still not unlocked. Ugh.

This is the stupidest "game" I have ever played. You run back and forth and get muffins for some stupid reason and some old lady yells at you repeatedly while you grab the muffins. For some reason you shapeshift when you grab a muffin and you get yelled at for letting pigs die and get yelled at for fighting the pigs too. So you're supposed to dodge them? But the controls are as fluid as a jar of Crisco. The graphics are nice though... oh wait, no unless you play in a window they are massively stretched out and ultra eye-burning bright. 3/10

Creating something unique is becoming a more and more difficult task in the world of smartphone gaming. There are so many games out there, and so many other people making new ones, that your brilliant idea has probably already been built and released.

Equally, the huge swathe of clones and copycats that bloat the App Store make it even more refreshing when something does come along that's that little bit different. Muffin Knight, from Angry Mob Games, is one such breath of fresh air.

As original as it is in the context of the App Store, however, it's important to note that Muffin Knight borrows heavily from Vlambeer's excellent Super Crate Box, which is also coming to iOS this month.

Knights currant

You play a young boy who accidentally scatters a basket of magic muffins to the four corners of a cartoon-style fairytale world. Incensed by your actions, the fairy whose muffins they were turns you into a knight and sends you off on a quest to retrieve the arcane cakes.

This takes the form of jumping around enclosed levels, killing scuttling pigs and other beasts and grabbing the deliciously enhanced buns. The twist is that every time you pick up a muffin you change class. You'll start as the eponymous Knight, but for the first few play throughs you'll swap between a mage, an archer, and a goblin as well.

The characters all have different strengths and weaknesses, and as you play through the game you'll unlock new classes as well.

While the original four are all quite similar ranged fighters, later in the game you'll have rainbow mine-pooping unicorns, fire-breathing dragons, and claw swiping bears at your disposal too.

Confectionery crisis

You unlock new classes when you've picked up enough muffins, but you also gain XP for slaying enemies and gathering the small cakes. You can spend this XP on levelling up your characters, making them quicker and their attacks more potent.

Of course, you're never sure which characters you're going to be in the game, so it's entirely possible to swap straight from a super-powered Knight to a one-starred kitten ninja in one muffin-fuelled swoop.

All in all there are six levels to play through, all of which can be attacked multiple times, and 15 characters to unlock and upgrade. There's a multiplayer mode as well, which lets you connect with other iPhones over a local wi-fi network, to duke it out over who's the muffin-collecting monarch.

Buns of zeal

Muffin Knight looks good, sounds good, and has a great, original idea at its core, but it's not all sweetness and light. The control system isn't perfect, with taps of the on-screen buttons sometimes not registering.

It's pretty difficult as well, though even failure is rewarded with XP, meaning you'll be stronger the next time around. The lack of levels might put some off, but every play through is going to be different because your character changes are allocated entirely at random.

These problems are mere niggles, though, and shouldn't dissuade you from playing this hugely enjoyable action-platformer. This is a leaping, blasting, clawing slice of fun that deserves to find a home on as many iOS devices as possible.

It is fun to play for a while, but it definitely plays and feels like a mobile port. While it says full controller support, the interface does not have gamepads in mind. I certainly have found myself stuck in parts of the menus where I had little choice but to use the mouse. Some things are difficult to do with the gamepad and button instructions are all written for other platforms. I can't really recommend it at the listed price because of the partial controller support, simplistic gameplay and lack of a local co-op mode. The Android version is both better and cheaper. On special it might be worth considering.

Game claims to have full controller support. Plays fine during rounds, but is CRAZY unresponsive between rounds. Anything menu-based responds randomly to the controller, making repeating a failed round FAR more difficult than it should be.

I'm using an Xbox One controller.

As others have said, it's Super Crate Box in a fantasy setting. If you're willing to pay actual money for that, well then...go right ahead. This came in a bundle, likely one where I only wanted ONE of the games anyway.

This is a really pleasant multiplayer game where you need to collect muffins. Every muffin you collect changes your character and there are total of 18 characters in game, each with different attack mode.

You can also buy perks and upgrade HP and each character (two times each).

Pros:
- beautiful graphics - for such kind of multiplayer game the candy graphics are really great
- characters are different and most are useful
- levelling system is ok

Cons:
- multiplayer is not working (or maybe it's just in my case)
- gaining levels take forever
- Santa Claus level is just totally random, I got stuck there and deleted the game

Overall this would be a really good multiplayer game provided the multiplayer would be working. As is for now you can play for about 2 hours in singleplayer and still have fun but you must decide if it's worth 7 euros.

I had fun playing this game but I don't think that I'll get back to it therefore I give it thumbs down.

In defense of this game, it works. Which is really a big thing for a lot of low effort 2D platformers/shooters/whatever the indie studios churn out in shovelware by the tonne every year.

The sound and graphics really function.

The art style for a lot of the levels is thematically ripped from a strange combination of Mario and World of Warcraft. Look, we're in Undercity! Look, we're in Zangarmarsh!

Gameplay is nothing new, the basic mechanic is present in literally over 1,000 Steam titles, you jump, you shoot, there's multiplayer jump and shoot. Goombas totally inventive new enemies like sheep fall out of the sky and you have to kill them.

It's hard to give this the thumbs down, because the developers achieved what they set out to do.

So, why the thumbs down? Firstly - there's not enough technical customisability. We can't even force the resolution. The game handles okay today, but next year, the year after, it's going to fail to remain playable on newer systems. This is a handicap enforced by the multiplatform system (because you know, console gamers and tablet gamers and PC gamers have so much in common).

Secondly, well, what is this game contributing to anything? I said earlier the developers achieved what they set out to do. They succeeded in creating a game that fills no special niches, is derivative, and will certainly fail to be remembered alongside hundreds of other 2D indy platformers released every year hoping to be Super Meat Boy. Was it a good idea to set out to do this? No, even if they succeeded. This isn't worth the current price of $7 USD on Steam they're asking for. Go play Super Mario Brothers on an emulator or something if you really have to do 2D platforming.

You start off as a bloody knight that doesn't attend at the round table of unicorns and you end up pretty quick as being a badass unicorn that poops some rainbow poop. It can be incredibly easy if you just eat the god damn muffins, or it can be incredibly hard if you forget to kill the muffin terrorists, but I tend to see the thieves as ISIL soldiers, and I therefore think that killing is the only option.. Behead em' and eat them muffins before it kills ye off!

But it is sadly very cute pigs you start off killing. But as we all know, bacon tastes hell lot better than muffins, so I think ISIL will enjoy their favorite food. Right?

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.

PARTIAL CONTROLLER SUPPORT. Don't be fooled by the store page, menu navigation with controller is poor, in some cases not working at all.
I've played this game on an Android tablet previously.

It's a cute little arcade game where you gather muffins. Each time you gather a muffin your character changes to a different one. Each have different abilities which you can upgrade.

You unlock new levels by managing to reach a certain amount of muffins without failing on the previous level.
You unlock new characters by total amount of muffins gathered.

Depending on how many muffins you gather and enemies you kill in a level you get experience points at the end of the level. These go towards upgrading your characters or your amount of extra lives etc.

Decent game, fun for a few hours.

The art style is really lovely! SFX could be better.

Yeah, it looks like a Super Crate Box clone but in my opinion I think it perfects or tries to perfect the 'formula'.

You can upgrade characters and there are a variety of levels including a boss level and a Christmas themed level. There is also plenty of content to keep you grinding for max completion, especially if you are going with the achievements.

I also like the visual style of the game and the developers seem keen on updating and fixing parts of the game as it has already received 2 or 3 updates since its release on Steam.

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!

I first heard of Muffin Knight in a greenlight bundle. I ignored it. It looked too much like a children's game, with nothing to interest an older player.

Boy was I wrong. Not only is it incredibly simple, but it's addictive as hell, it's tougher than leather too, because while the controls are exceptionally tight, they're also fast. You'll run into enemies a lot (instant death) and every time you'll know that it's your own fault you died. As a casual platformer it's great fun.

Highly recommended.

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.

This game is a lot of fun. It might not be the best port, and some of the control decisions are a little odd, but it's got that "just one more time" aspect to it that keeps me coming back. The graphics are pretty nice, definitely very colorful and creative, and the different characters and abilities are a lot of fun to play around with.

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!
