Last Knight: Rogue Rider Edition takes the gameplay from the Last Knight on iOS devices and brings it into the PC realm with tonnes of additional content.

Gameplay mixes together elements of platforming, ragdoll physics, endless runners and action into a single experience where you’ll control a knight and his noble horse as they adventure through all sorts of environments to collect loot and dispatch enemies. Players must dodge obstacles by moving from side to side, jump over gaps and activate their lance to defeat enemies in front of them.

The Rogue Rider Edition offers three games modes; endless journey, story campaign and rogue rider adventure. Endless journey is your traditional endless runner where you’ll have a single life to reach as far as possible while collecting loot to unlock new characters and power ups which will help you achieve greater distances.

Power ups include things like the ghost rider which will let you pass through objects, Pegasus wings to carry you safely over gaps or the second sight clock to slow down time. There are a total of power ups available in Last Knight: Rogue Rider Edition which are one time uses and upgradeable to improve the length of time that they last for.

Endless journey also features a variety of quests which are given to players by the unlockable characters through scrolls that you’ll find randomly and require you to complete a small achievement in a single game (such as killing 10 skeletons with your lance). Each of these quests offers chivalry points which can be spent on mutators to alter your game experience such as interesting first person mode or changing the game world.

You’ll also find Last Knight: Rogue Rider Edition to be a fairly humorous experience with the ragdoll physics coming into full effect every time you die with the option to slow the game down further and save a screenshot of your demise.

You can’t argue that Last Knight: Rogue Rider Edition isn’t addicting and packed with content but the lack of the core gameplay evolving throughout the experience means there just isn’t enough driving you forward to experience it all.

Summary:

  • Dodge, jump and joust your way through randomised paths.
  • Collect coins and loot to unlock new characters and powerful upgrades.
  • Find scrolls to unlock challenging quests.
  • Three game modes to enjoy.
  • Alter the gameplay through mutators that change the world around you and camera angles.
