Spiral Knights is free to play cooperative dungeon crawler fantasy MMORPG.
The player begins as a simple knight, and jump into action with an ever-changing, randomized world known as the Clockworks. Players can influence the areas they enter by depositing different minerals into the gates before they open. As players level up, they can upgrade their equipment or craft new items.
Every Spiral Knight has two attacks: one primary attack with a melee weapon and one special attack. You start with a gun but can later gain access to bombs, and your arsenal is constantly changing as you defeat new enemies and learn to manufacture new weapons.
One of Spiral Knights' greatest strengths is its art direction. Enemies are somehow a combination of threatening and adorable, armor upgrades make your Knight look both tough and huggable, and every environment you visit has tons of cool elements that make it interesting and distinct from the others in the game.
Spiral Knights is a wonderful game. It is beautifully designed and fun to play and offers hours of interesting combat in a variety of environments.
But there's one enormous catch: You have to pay real-life money to play Spiral Knights if you plan to play it for more than an hour at a time. Almost everything you do in Spiral Knights costs Energy. If you want to run a mission it costs 10 Energy, if you want to go to the second level of the dungeon it will be again 10 Energy. You start every day with 100 Energy, which you will quickly consume through normal gameplay.
Overall, Spiral Knights is a fun, engaging, pretty game. So if you have nothing else to do, you can check it out.
