The Relief Of A Completed Level
I've been playing a lot of Shovel Knight recently. I've been actively looking to get quite a few trophies within the game. There's one for finishing the game, one for doing so without dying, one for doing so without falling into a bottomless pit, and one for destroying every checkpoint in the game. Naturally these look like they're designed to be stacked, so I decided I'd try one single run of the game where I destroyed all checkpoints, (I wasn't going to need them anyway), and beat the game without dying which would naturally include not falling into bottomless pits.
This run has been particularly hard. The game is beyond a challenge when you attempt a no death run. I've spend literally days on the last few levels; but I've finally got past Polar Knight and Propeller Knight today, leaving only Tinker Knight left... then there's the final boss obviously.
I'll still need to do another play through minimum in order to do the speed run play through, which I may combine with the New Game+ play through, (if I'm able). This has been one hell of a trail to try and get the platinum but it feels like I'm getting through the hardest part now. The weapon specific trophies are easy clean-up, I can do them on King Knights, (or in my case Queen Knights) level.
Hopefully I'll have the game done before Christmas. Here's hoping.
