Knytt Underground is a platformer that relies on exploration and making accurate jumps instead of having a focus on combat or avoiding enemies. The game is separated into three chapters, which you can play in any order but the way that the rooms are set up make it likely that you will go through them in order. In the first chapter you will play as Mi, who has the ability to climb on walls. Chapter 2 will have you controlling a ball that is constantly bouncing that has the ability to increase the strength of its bounces when you hold a direction. Chapter 3 will have you playing as Mi again but with the added ability of changing into the ball, and this is the chapter where the map becomes much bigger and the areas you travel through have greater variety. The soft music perfectly fits the game and changes to match the atmosphere of the areas that you are exploring, and the artstyle can be both beautiful and haunting. You will have conversations with other characters that can take a more humorous and adult tone, causing the game to have a mature rating, that can seem to conflict with the art and music of the game. While combat is not a focus of the game you will start to run into robot enemies that need to be avoided. Powerups can be found that will allow you to access new areas and exploring and trying to find hidden secrets and areas make Knytt Underground a very lengthy game. I recommend this game for those that like exploration and strong atmosphere in their games. The story and dialogue might be a little disappointing and might not feel like it matches the setting, but it can be humorous and even it has its moments.
