We return to review another independent developer game and this time with the platform game Sir Lovelot, in which we play the role of a knight who searches for the love of his life in an adventure based on precision in control, this type of games is known for its distinctive designs for its stages and the difficulty that prompts you to make an extra effort to win, How was the experience?
The game does not present any story to remember and you begin to embark on the adventure in it from the very first moment, the experience comes to us with a classic character and the game world has been beautifully drawn with smooth movement of the characters and elements of the surrounding environment, and unlike the beautiful appearance of the game, the music comes to us with a simple tone, but you will not notice it most of the time as it performs Sort of its purpose.
Control in the game is simple with a button to jump and another to shoot, while the latter is dedicated to rushing into the air, as is the norm of these games. The simplicity of the control makes it easier for you to get used to the experience and focus on overcoming the obstacles that you will face. You collect coins or find the duck that lays gold to finish the stage by 100%, and as you progress through the stages, there will be more gifts that can be given to the princess to increase the rating.
The game world is divided into 4 different regions, each of which presents its own character, but this character is limited to the background of the screen in general, with the addition of a new monster in each region and a new type of traps, and each area will end with a different challenge than usual, while some genre games may exploit such simple things To give a clear diversification to the experience, but Sir Lovelot fails to do so, after going through the experience and completing a number of its stages, you will realize that you are going through these stages. You benefit from the elements that each world adds, of course, but not in the required manner, and we can summarize what we have said by saying that the game simply fails to make its mark.
Despite its reliance on the accuracy of control, the game is not that difficult, and except for a few stages, it was more difficult than others, we can say that the difficulty may be suitable for most players, as it begins to gradually escalate very slowly with each stage, the experience is not bad, but it is not excellent at the same time and it can be said that The experience’s lack of depth in the design of the stages was the main reason for this, and the difficulty plays a role in that as well, as the absence of a challenge and the need to make an effort may make you lose the desire to complete.
The game offers 42 different stages that we have completed within 3 hours, at a rate of 66%, and as we mentioned, this percentage depends on the amount of secrets that you have discovered and whether you collect coins and additional gifts, and the life of the experience may double if you want to end it by 100%. You will end it without feeling that way, as it fails to leave its mark and does not exploit what you have in terms of assets.
