Knytt Stories

Knytt Stories is, Knytt but better! Not in any manner is this an over exaggeration. The fact that Kynytt was too short is fixed in Knytt Stories with multiple levels and even the option to download more.

While the core mechanics are the same: jumping, climbing etc and the over all feel of the game keeps it's charm- Knytt Stories adds a few needed things to what Knytt was in order to make an absolutely perfect gaming experience.

Notable Changes:

  • Collectible Items Have in Game Value - Each item that is collected in Knytt Stories has a point beyond simply collecting it. Items are power ups, keys or other things needed to advance further within the level that was presented.

  • Difficulty and Challenge - Knytt, itself, was very very easy. The game pointed you to each item and required nothing to difficult from it's users. This lets the casual gamer or the "on-off" gamer have something quick and fun but lacks accomplishment, for the most part. Knytt Stories fixes this by allowing for difficulty settings as well as removing the "look over here" magic beam that Knytt had.

  • Length of Play and Re-playability - Knytt was very short and then it was over. There are some secrets within the game but they are just silly, and also can be found in Knytt Stories. Knytt Stories allows for adding more levels, as stated earlier as well as the inclusion of an actual story with each level. This means that even while beating a level once, the story (if not simple again) is always kinda fun.

  • Level Creation - This is new! Upon the download and unzip of Knytt Stories each player is given the tools they need to create their own little story. There is a long list of archived stories and you, new player, can add your own if you wish. See one of the above links for half arsy details.

There is also a DS version of this game in the works, and the beta version has been released just a couple of days ago ^_-.
