The Black Knight is great smash-n-bash arcade game fun.
Hear Ye, Hear Ye... The Queen needs a new swimming pool. The King calls upon you, The Black Knight, to go hither and bash as much taxes as possible from thy freeloading peasants.
Bash thy King's peasants and objects to collect as much taxes as possible. Use the powered up swing and weapon upgrades to extract even more taxes per bash.
Each level the King tells you how much taxes you must collect. You must meet his whim by the level's end or you will be fired. What's an unemployed BK to do?
How far can you get in The Black Knight? How good of a highscore can you get? How many peasants can you bash?
Buy upgraded weapons in the shop to increase your ability to extract taxes. You may also buy the temporary one level items. The Lucky Amulet hauls in more items when bashing barrels. Strength Tonic makes hits stronger and hauls in more taxes. Armor Oil allows you to recover from a missed swing more quickly.
Tips & Tricks
Be careful in the shop - Buy powerups only when necessary as they cost money and make it that much harder to complete a level.
Buy powerup weapons - Each better level of weapon will extract more gold upon each hit. Be careful that you have enough money to spare to complete the next level before buying an upgrade. Each time you upgrade the King asks for a little less taxes the next few levels as he knows the upgrade will haul in more plus he runs the shop and makes money there too.
The King is adjustable - The King is extremely greedy and his never-ending thrist for money. He will watch your performance on each level and constantly bump up his expectation for the next level according to how much you scored on the previous level.
Use temporary upgrades - Use the temporary upgrades such as Strength Tonic and Lucky Amulet wisely. On later levels these with upgraded weapons these items will allow you to haul in enormous amounts of taxes.
