Knight Fever is an exhilarating new RPG recently launched on Android by veteran publisher Webzen. This spiritual successor to idle runner Buff Knight swaps the passive for a more aggressive style of play, with turn-based battles occurring across four crazy lanes simultaneously.
To help you get to grips with Knight Fever’s unique gameplay, we’ve put together some valuable tips and tricks for anyone hoping to avoid an unwanted Knightmare when exploring Knight Fever’s world of swords and pixels.
Characters & Skills
Knight Fever’s world is full of charismatic and forceful heroes to add to your team and enjoy, but here we’ve chosen to focus on Meow, Khrat, Ect and Enya to help get you started. All four boast their own unique abilities and skills capable of turning the tide of battle.
The perfect choice for players who prefer taking the fight directly to in-game enemies, Khrat can hit three of the four lanes at once with his unique skill. A brazen but often effective approach to say the least. Meow’s Bloodcurdling shout skill on the other hand can damage and sometimes even destroy hidden traps, rewarding those who prefer a more calculated approach.
Keeping with the tactical method is Ecst’s revenge skill, which acts as the only way to inflict damage to creatures who choose to hide behind barriers and shields. Finally, Enya’s Quack Quack ability helps players reap large rewards in the long term, gaining an additional skill when reaching the next level. It’s more than worthwhile to experiment with hero combinations such as this, often revealing how some stages can be easily cleared with a different line-up than others.
