I eat so many muffins and I don't get fat! They give me superpowers, instead.
Unicorn's poops and zombie's burps are the most hillarious things in the game!

Great game. It can be a little addictive but it's worth it.

addicting gameplay but joystick support is... not great.

there are times i get stuck with having to use the mouse, i would love to fully enjoy this with a controller and no need for a mouse. also, there are times when using the joystick, it seems like it gets stuck moving. i tried two different 360 controllers, ps4, and xbone controllers.

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.
