Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is worth picking up on its own, but you should really just get the total package and play through all three campaigns. They each offer something unique like a Vegas buffet, and coincidentally enough the new price point of the Treasure Trove edition matches up.

Hey Poor Player (Apr 28, 2017)
Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is another retro-style classic in the Shovel Knight series. As fun and as brutal as ever, it remains a testament to the winning formula behind not just Yacht Club’s games, but retro gaming as a whole. Over three decades later, 8-bit is still as relevant as ever. But don’t take our word for it. Hope on over to Steam now to dig up a copy that you can call your very own. If you’re a Shovel Knight fan, you certainly won’t be disappointed.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is in a very precarious position. On the one hand, I think that Yacht Club chose the perfect story to release as a standalone adventure. It’s polished to a sheen, handles like a new car and is well worth the ten dollar price tag for anyone uncertain about Shovel Knight. On the other, if you really enjoy Specter and want to try more, you’ve already purchased one third of the game at current, and might be hesitant to drop over twice as much to play more. I think the obvious solution is for Yacht Club to offer some kind of incentive discount for upgrading, but that remains to be seen. However, Specter of Torment is amazing in its own right, and can be played for quite a while, especially if you’re a perfectionist and want to improve your stats in the full game runthrough. Without worrying about the future, I recommend picking up Specter if you want to see just what Yacht Club brings to the table.
