Nonstop Knight is interesting. So much so that diving into it is almost the only option.
The action sequences are the biggest initial draw of this game, and are where the game’s choice of title becomes apparent. It pops off early, continuously and practically in an endless manner.
It features an honorable knight in a leveled environment, tasked with fighting a host of baddies.
Yep. Believe it. It goes like that. Simply. The knight roams from section to section, busting on enemies of numerous types, looking to take out as many as possible while collecting coin. Valuable XP is also earned, and potentially other goodies as well. It is just a continuous wave of battles and leveling all on its own.
It goes on and on. Enjoyably so.
The player can (and probably should) use the goodies collected to improve a host of things. The weapons have to be continually upgraded to deal with the hordes that become more sophisticated with every round. One cool aspect is the way the has the bosses set out; the player can choose when to take them on; if one is successful, the game goes on. If one is beaten by a boss, one can keep doing “regular” fighting to shore up coins to make one’s character a bit more effective.
There are also “runestones” that can be collected, and these are related to the “skills” which cover offensive and defensive moves. Runestones are generally a function of leveling up, and there are crates to open up. It runs like a self-operating RPG, and all one has to do is manage it. There is an “ascend”
There are strategies one can employ, especially in the battles. For instance, one can deploy a skill or two in order to make a particular battle go easier.
Looks-wise, it a fun, with bubbly characterizations, engaging sounds and matching animations. Altogether, just the media a game like this needs.
Now, it’s easy to fall in love with the game, but as one goes on, one might feel a bit of monotony set in; it is a lot of the same. Still, for a game that is fairly self-contained and has no real forced need for the available in-app purchases, it rocks.
