This adventure is best described as an adorable combination of Minecraft, bright, cute, colorful characters from Nintendo games and a generous dash of RPG elements. Combat is a little simplistic, making it easy enough for younger players to feel a sense of accomplishment. With the launch of Portal Knights to consoles, fun features have been added to keep players of all ages engaged. Pets and more than 100 NPC characters offering helpful tips and quests have been added, in addition to dynamic timed events. These events ramp up the difficulty level of the world they take place in, rewarding players with a trophy to take back to your home base after completing some of the challenges.
Creative types will be thrilled with the changes made to Portal Knights. The ability to plant farms, craft more than 100 items, and build of using dozens of materials hasn't changed. Instead, things have been refined with even more crafting options, and long anticipated water tiles have been included to create castle moats, waterfalls, and ponds. In fact, if you were content building complex structures out of only dirt, wood, and stone blocks, you could spend your entire time on the first level and still level up simply from building and crafting. But to get better materials to craft with, you must restore the portals and venture out either alone or with friends to a variety of biomes. Each zone is its own biome, with unique environments, creatures, and resources for crafting. Relaxing music, gorgeous scenery, and endless possibilities for crafting your dream castle, or any other structure you can imagine, combine to make Portal Knights the perfect recipe for fun.
