Just something small I did in between work.
I very much enjoyed Shovel Knight, but wondered if I could fix up the game's sprites using roughly the same restrictions. All the characters are a few pixels bigger for readabillity, but use the same colors and poses, and some design elements have been altered to so they match the character illustrations released alongside the game.
Dark Knight has been given an extra color, simply because he has one fewer than all the other sprites, and definitely needed some added readabillity.
King Knight, Plague Knight and Spectre Knight has also had one of their colors exchanged for another (taken from the other sprites) to make better use of them. Plague Knight especially had a barely visible green along with his yellow, and Spectre Knight's original gray made an odd blend whit his main magenta color.
The idea was to still make the sprites feel like they fit the style, but in the end I suppose it was mainly for fun.
