Video Review


At the very least, 'Super Chibi Knight' has a colorful visual style. The art reminds me a lot of games like 'Castle Crashers', and is a very cartoony style with thick outlines for everything. The monsters in particular look good, and it's a nice touch the main character's armor and sword change appearance for each level up.

That said, I still didn't quite enjoy the visuals fully. The characters look a bit too silly, and a good deal of the visual effects come off as cheap, even if they aren't. Also, while emulating the look of other cartoony titles, the game's visuals can lack the charm of games of its ilk, which only really comes out to shine during the boss battles, where bosses are large and expressive.

Audio Review


Overall, 'Super Chibi Knight's' audio work is solid. Music fits well for the various locales—for example, the first overworld theme evokes a sense of a starting adventure, while the final dungeon is a rocking track that emphasizes the sense of danger. Additionally, all of the main character's lines are actually voiced by the developer's daughter, which adds an adorable factor to the whole game. I can't help but smile every time the chibi knight goes "Awesome!" when she find treasure, or "Aw man!" when she gets knocked out. It's incredibly cute, and a nice touch in terms of voice acting that's rarely seen.

Final Thoughts

'Super Chibi Knight' isn't the perfect game, but that doesn't stop it from being a lot of fun. Its short playtime makes sure that the Steam title doesn't overstay its welcome, and there's a lot to enjoy in its simplistic nature. If you have a free afternoon and want to take a break from that latest AAA game, give 'Super Chibi Knight' a download, and have a somewhat relaxing, enjoyable time.
