I really like the checkpoint system they've introduced, where you can literally ruin your checkpoint for money.

This adds a BRILLIANT element of risk / reward that serves both kinds of gamers extremely well. For such a minor feature it becomes a major consideration in each level's strategy.

I'm not sure I've disagreed with a single design decision yet, and I'm pretty sure I'm nearing the end of the game.

I agree It kinda sucks tho when your friend keeps for some reason hitting the attack button near the check points lol

Unless he was playing on PC, on which there is a lock-up sometimes or input lag.

Beat the game, took me 8:15 hrs with most things done (6 missing musical sheets) and it was awesome. Although there could be more boss battles like Thinker Knight, it was awesome.

Why? I've beat a whole stage without checkpoints and turkeys - it is possible, you only must be little more careful.

If you are interested in both than buy both - it is on steam sale.

I say Shovel Knight - overall it is much better game and one of the best, if not best, retro inspired platformers

Well, technically a grind would be repeated leveling up because your character is too weak. Whereas trying over and over again is more or less just a result of lack of skill, right? I mean, I've never played a game where you had to rely on luck to get through. I've been lucky before, but that's not to say it couldn't have been done with the right amount of skill.

Don't mind me I'm just babbling, thinking out loud.

Destroying all of the checkpoints to get that extra cash is the way to play Shovel Knight. ;)

"A grind" is a repetitive, laborous task or routine. Period. It doesn't matter if it requires skill or not, once you've done it so much it feels like a chore, its "a grind".

I beat the game tonight, thoroughly enjoyable. The unlimited lives/checkpoints system is really forgiving. It never gets too frustrating but does get close at times. I don't mind the price when it yields quality like this.

that's pretty good I can beat a few of them but some of the later stages are quite harder with out certain check points but I do like the challenge. I think on my second play through I'm going to smash all the check points

I was hoping there would be NO checkpoints, i'd rather be punished and start right back at the beginning of the stage when i lose a life. I want to better my skills by correcting every mistake i made, mastering the stage design, enemy layout, the works. Check points make this half-impossible. ;)

Although I applaud their reasoning behind not explaining this to the player, it still should have been mentioned by a NPC in the first town (unless I missed that). Otherwise some people would never know, like @WaveBoy mentioned.
