"A f2p Diablo styled mmo, where you take on waves of enemies, complete missions, and upgrade your knight. Not exactly for everyone, but fun nonetheless."

Gobble Snipes Passing Through...



You may have noticed the Gobble Snipes have stopped by Haven to visit the Strangers once again! Now is your chance to invite gold, brown, and black Gobble Snipes to roost permanently in your guild hall via the Gobble Snipe Box, detailed here. Each box contains a Gobble Snipe, and a chance for a Gift of Autumn trinket. Gobble Snipes, by the way, make fine roommates, and they don't leave a mess like some of your fellow knights *COUGHCRONUSANDAPHRODITECOUGH* might.

Wow, sorry, really had to clear my *AHEMATALANTAANDHELIOSAHEM* throat there.

Gosh.

These feathery friends will stick around in Haven through December 1, 2014 and then be on their way, so be sure to say hello while you can!

The game is very addicting, you make good friends and fight on, it's super cute, and has the best Sound Tracks in the game and the gameplay style feels like The Legend of Zelda Link to the past, above all, this is my personal favorite MMO that ever existed for me...

A very fun game to start off with!
Then after hours and hours of cartoony fun everything begins to grind to a halt, leveling your character becomes almost impossible without endless hours of grinding and at this point it becomes "free to play, pay to win." Other than this i have no problems with a great game.

PROS:
- Very good art.
- Very fun level design.
- Good mechanics.
- Community is great, friendly, and always wanna help others!
- Great game overall.

CONS:
- Becomes "pay to win."
- Music can get repetitive and boring if you play for hours.

My final rating: 8/10.

Why?
Although its pay to win, the hours of fun i've had with this game make up for it.
Play the game, enjoy it (i promise you will), and then when you get to the point where you cant continue very well, decide wether you wanna buy lots of gear or not. its free unless you choose to pay, so go hard gamers!
Try it out, you wont regret it!

It doesn't seem like much, but it is truly worth playing!
Even though energy has been used in the past for E V E R Y T H I N G, there is one thing you want.
To play this game!
:D
Totally try it out and dont be judging a book by it's cover!

It's a fun hack'n'slash with a cute asthetic and good gameplay. Has a rather harsh energy mechanic though, so playing it alot or very hardcore could be costly.

The gameplay is amazing, with an easy combat system to learn. There is a lot of grinding involved, but I never actually got bored while playing, because the combat is just that much fun. However, the music is just okay, and the story leaves something to be desired.

8.5/10

Spiral knights is a great game for those of you that like games that you can get bored of and come back to easily, but sometimes it punishes you, because with every update that spiral knights gets it becomes harder to progress, and there is a wall that you will encounter eventually in progression to where you either need to grind your heart out, (hence getting bored of and later coming back to) or pay to skip it. I myself am STILL in this wall region, but, it is/was a great game. my biased review would be 8/10 but honestly in reality with how hostile in my opinion it is to new players a 6.5-7.5/10 would be correct, also i have 500 hours on this game, just i wasn't into steam when i first started playing the game and later transfered into it. also you get a hat if you do the tutorial, totes worth playing it alittle for that free hat

Spiral Knights is a great game and the community is pretty friendly which really adds to the experience (joining guilds, partying, etc etc). Playstyle mechanics are fairly simple and repetitive but the environment and obstacles require focus so it doesn't get boring. I think what I appreciated most was the art style and the music. The game targets a younger generation but I believe you can play and enjoy this at whatever age. Fantastic game. 8/10.

On the distant Planet Cradle deep in Citadel Space & the Gurhal System, lies the Cradle Branch of Little Wing. Our guild private security firm on Cradle while our Main Headquarters is located aboard the Space Resort Colony Clad 6, owned and operated by the SkyClad Company.

Given its small size, the Cradle Branch of Little Wing can accept any mission that comes its way, regardless of legality.

Join my guild & together, we'll make Cradle a Safe Place for everyone.
We also have our SkyClad General Trading Company Division within Clad 6 that's focused on Clothing and the Resort Business.
