“Much like muffins, Muffin Knight is sweet, simple, and dangerously addicting, and you can never go wrong with rainbow-shitting unicorns”
Kotaku

“The sound of a unicorn pooing is enough to remind you that this ain’t no land of Oz”
Capsule Computers

“It’s challenging, fun, and addictively fast-paced. You should definitely check the game out, if for no other reason than to control a unicorn that poops explosive rainbows”

Honestly one of the best games on the steam market.
Great co-op fun with friends.
Casual and cute but actually extremely difficult at times.
It's a lot of fun collecting all the different characters and leveling up all the unique play styles.
I would recommend this game to play with friends.

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.

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.

"Kotaku gaming app of the day"
And with that, any integrity Kotaku had went right out the window.

Endorsing a game that is a reskin of another game (that is also free to play) is the kind of thing that makes you look bad Kotaku, but I am not here to take #Gamergate style potshots at you.

This game is good on an "i" device like iPad or iPhone.
It may also play well with a touchscreen laptop.

Anything else though and it is just garbage.
Look, if you are thinking of buying this game, just look up Super Crate Box and you can play a better game and that one is free so you actually honestly have no reason to ever buy this game unless you feel a strong desire to unlock the achievements for it.

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.

Although the gameplay is quite similar to Super Crate Box, I actually prefer Muffin Knight due to its superior graphics and the welcoming overall flow of the game. I am honestly quite tired of playing games that looks like they should have been released 25 years ago.

Muffin Knight is fairly cheap so I recommend it if you like a somewhat fast pace action game similar to Bubble Bobble or a superior "copy" of Super Crate Box.

Get them muffins. Have a lot of fun. Thumbs up!


Quick, simple and very polished. Looks amazing and the music goes well with the action, really fun to play and addictive: as if gathering muffins weren't enough motivation, reaching milestones to add characters to our cast and unlocking new scenarios give you more reasons to keep jumping, firing, blasting, slashing and smashing.

Controls work great, stylish graphics and good sound effects, plus a funny idea, and great execution make this game a very good option if you’re looking to just have fun. Well done Angry Mob Games!

I am not sure if I should recommend this game or not. I had a great time when I was playing and actually unlocking the stuff but that lasted for about 5 hours even when I was messing around and after that it is just stereotypical grinding with horrible bugs. On the top of that the game is obvious rip off of Super crate box which is free.

Fair warning - the game is FREE on Google store, 1$ for Android version and here it is 7€ in Europe, that is just ... stupid ... you know what I wanted to say

I may reconsider my statement if they fix the bugs

Kill triplets of evil bodyless skulls by throwing banana-shaped boomerangs at them. Then proceed eating a muffin and transforming into a gay pony whose poop is rainbow. Eat another muffin and you're now either a giant eye who creates black holes or a zombie who barfs candies. Yes, this game is THIS good.
Also very good graphics. Absolutely recommended.

EDIT: support by devs is still non-existent. Game is really good but it also has some bugs and problems but devs didn't reply ANY of my inquiries. Again, the game is good but the more you play the more you realized how bugged it is.

You think this game is easy,but you're super duper wrong. Once you get to a certain point it just gets extremely hard farming for those muffins. And muffins are just traps for the monster to spring out and slap you on the ♥♥♥. And then you have to get to level 1 million to even beat this damn game. So overall this game is evil and depressing, thats why you should get this game :D.

A few years ago in the town of Middlebury Oregon, there was a man named Joseph Woodstock. He liked to be called Joey. He was a nice fellow, with a few close friends. The local ladies who saw him sometimes bowling at the local Bowl-o-Rama Bowling Alley said he was pleasant on the eyes. He was a nice guy to be around, and a very pleasant conversationalist. He knew all the right things to say, and never seemed to be on anyone's bad side. He never had a run in the with local police, and was very straight and narrow. He owned an auto parts store in town. the shop being one of only 2 auto places in town was profitable, leaving Joey to skip the 9 to 5 grind, and have plenty of free time to pursue more leisurly activities. Joey was American as apple pie, and loving life to the fullest. He did have a girlfriend, whom he had even asked to marry him recently. She gladly accepted. Joey's life seemed set.

Joey was a good wholesome average man, with lots to live for. Which is why none of the rest of this makes sense...

On the night of September 14th, 2012, Joey was last seen sitting outside of his 2 story home, on his steps. A neighbor recalls seeing Joey through her window across the street. Joey appeared to be shaking, wearing only what appeared to be a towel, shorts (possibly boxers), and no shoes on. He looked a mess. The neighbor went downstairs, and when she went out of her door to see if Joey was okay, he was gone. She went to his front door and rang the doorbell, but there was no answer.

2 days later, Joey's body was found outside of town washed up in a riverbed.

Police say there was no signs of foul play, and it appeared that he had commited suicide by jumping off a bridge located further upstream, breaking his neck on impact. None of this made sense. This man, whom was recently engaged and not in any trouble financially or otherwise, took his own life? This made no sense at all.

Police searched his home and found no evidence of foul play. When they searched his den, the lights were flickering off and on, with a faint humming coming from a computer fan. The computer had been left on. Maybe there were clues here? One officer walked up to the computer desk, and touched the mouse enough to get the computer out of sleep mode. what he saw haunted him. A few seconds later, the computer monitor sparked, and then it shut off. It had died. As well as the computer with it.

Haunted by what he had seen, officer Henry King mentioned none of this to other officers, and left what he had seen on the screen out of his report.

4 days later, Henry King was found dead in his apartment. He had hung himself the night before.

On his computer monitor it flickered off and on. Muffin Knight. Scribbled on a notepad also on his desk, in almost illegible hand writing was a small message: "Abandon all hope ye who enter here"
