After getting hit by an enemy or hazard, Shovel Knight will flash and become invincible for a moment. While he is invincible, quickly slip by any difficult areas!
Sometimes what looks like a dead end is really a secret path! Try shoveling suspicious-looking walls or large areas of land and you might just find a reward.
The Shovel Blade is a dependable weapon but it isn’t always the best tool for the job. Some tough spots can be a lot safer when you have the right Relic in hand.
Enemies and hazards disappear when Shovel Knight leaves a screen and goes to a new screen. Use this secret to escape tough enemies.
Some enemies and hazards return to their original position when Shovel Knight returns to a screen. If you want to reset a situation, just leave the screen and come back!
If you played a tough level, missed the Relic, and lost all of your gold, not all is lost! Choose “RETURN TO MAP” from the Pause Menu to go back to the world map, resetting everything to how it was before you entered!
