Play OverviewPlay Overview

Knight Squad and Knight Squad 2 (2014) are a series of short fighting games where you battle other people to win the most rounds. Like other fight games it's fast-paced, lighthearted, and chaotic. More unusual are the novel modes and themes: from football to swordplay. It's ideal for families with a range of ages and abilities.

Viewed from above, you control the movement and action of your character through 13 different game modes, each offering a different set of objectives: capture the flag, hunt for souls, race around a track or coating the arena in the colour of your character.

You compete with other players for points, and can play dirty by attacking them and getting in their way. You can pick up a range of upgradeable weapons to give you the edge and help you claim the victory crown.

The hectic, chaotic game modes, paired with lighthearted action and the ability to play with others, be they experts or novices, make it a great choice for friends and family game nights.
