  • Incorporating strategy RPG, real-time strategy, and shooter elements, you've never experienced a game like this. Control a Wisp with your stylus and activate the souls of deceased knights to aid you in destroying foes on the map. Enemies fire bullets in multiple directions, making it vital for players to master the unique touch controls
  • Find and recruit the ghosts of seven different classes of knights from your kingdom, and learn of their pasts, hopes, dreams, and untimely deaths. Sacrifice their souls to one another to balance their skills and create your ultimate party
  • This twice-told legend entangles you in a dark and brooding tale that is simultaneously examined through events both past and present. Complete the adventure to unlock the ability to play through the game with a new narrative twist, placing the antagonist in the starring role


Certain to be one of the most innovative titles of 2009, Knights in the Nightmare is wholly unique. Not easily placed in any one genre, the game requires players to throw out everything they know about roleplaying and strategy games and embrace something altogether new and fresh. Frantic, energetic action mixes with thoughtprovoking tactical gameplay, all within a beautifully-rendered fantasy setting and presented through a captivating, emotional narrative. Dripping with style and originality, Knights in the Nightmare delivers an unforgettable experience.

Drawn Out
While it has repetitive gameplay that should have ended 5-10 stages earlier, it is still a very unique experience in that it combines both strategy and "bullet hell" elements from their respective genres. Simply put, this game is a curious anomaly with an odd concept at worst, or a completely original must-play at best.

Excellent, but not for everyone.
Knights in the Nightmare is a very unique and interesting RPG with a fantastic art style and demanding gameplay, requiring you to learn a whole heap before delving into its incredibly deep system. This will easily put off most casual RPG gamers, but if you perservere you'll find the game is addictive, enjoyable and challenging to the senses.

It's certainly not a game you can recommend to everyone, however for the more hardcore gamers and ones willing to plunge into a tactical and very in-depth title, Knights in the Nightmare is an excellent choice.
