Knight Squad is an independent arcade game designed around multiplayer gameplay for up to 8 players. The title was developed by Chainsawesome Games, a developer team of three.
The creators describe their game as a crossover between Bomberman and Gauntlet. The player becomes one of the titular knights and is sent to fight on small, confined arenas. Chainsawesome Games prepared a number of both competitive and cooperative modes. Knight Squad offers the following game modes: Grail (you have to carry the grail into a target location), Capture the Flag (a mode known to all fans of multiplayer gameplay), Soccer (a local variation of the popular sport), Gladiator (stay alive within the golden zone), Last Man Standing (be the last one to survive all rounds), and Team Deathmatch (teams against eachother).
The game was designed with multiplayer gameplay in mind (both local and online) for up to 8 people. However, if none of your friends is available at the moment, you can play with bots (AI-controlled knights). There are all sorts of weapons you can use in combat. The developers implemented various tools of destruction, including crossbows, bows, swords, and even laser guns. Moreover, you can use special powers, such as shield, kamikaze, or ninja. The game features a top-down perspective and minimalistic visuals.
