Spiral Knights is a massive online RPG developed by Three Rings Design.


The Spiral Knights awaken in an unknown world with their spaceship severely damaged. They take a break in the town of Haven and set out on their new mission. The Knights have to get deeper under the world's surface into a maze known as Clockworks. This giant complex is full of clock-like mechanisms and contains parts of other worlds within it which makes it a haven for terrible monsters. The Clockworks constantly rearranges itself. Those who shall get to the center of the maze unravels the mystery of the maze's creators, and its purpose.


Spiral Knights is a top-down game which was heavily influenced by the first installments of The Legend Of Zelda series. You control one knight who has do face groups of enemies, avoid traps and solve puzzles. The option of cooperative play is also available for the players.

While resting from battles and exploration, the knights gather in the city known as Haven. The Players can talk to each other there, trade, upgrade their equipment or buy something new. You can also start or join a guild. With the game being entirely free-to-play, the in-game currency can be bought for real money.

Two currencies are present in the game: Energy and Crowns. Energy can be exchanged for currency or used for the in-game activities, while Crowns are used for loot. Real money is often used to buy promotional costumes or other items.

Spiral Knights reviews and comments

"Install TF2, go play Spiral Knights to get around the TF2 hat, go in TF2, play for a bit with the new HAT, uninstall TF2 and go back to Spiral Knights = Mission finish!" Spiral Knights is a great Game, but unfortunately has been abandoned after a few Years. You could make so much more of it just if you want to. I hope more and more new Players are coming, because that's the only way we can show that the Spiral Knights needs to improve. Making a really big Update (Project) would also be nice, because some Players also lose the Patience that the Game is already playing hourly years. So Community, finally get active and show what you have in terms of Ideas and Fantasies, the Costumes can wait. Spiral Knights is a great game, but unfortunately, been abandoned after a few years.

WIGSTES TIME: When you have downloaded the Game over Steam and it crashes all The time uninstalled it and download it via the official Side of the Game. IMPORTANT THINGS FIRST: If you downloaded this game via Steam delete and it crashes over and over again try downloading this game at the offical Website. This Game got me excited when I got it over Steam really Excited and I didn't fancy the Game anymore just I've become new Gigiying and have Googled once if this Game has an official site as well because I didn't want to give the Game a bad Rating just because it didn't work with me Went. Then Got me the Game down via the official Site and it runs super fluidly and without Any problems. If it is also the case with you that it crashes and that all The time please do not just give this Game a bad Rating but Play it after you have put it down via the OFFIZIELLE SEITE. To get to the Game: It's really a good 13,000 Steam Reviews and these are mostly positive That I sign right away. It plays very pleasantly about WASD and Aiming with the Mouse. There are many Weapons, Armor and Accessories (this Word I have to google EXTRA XD) that make each Character really unique and the same goes for the Dungeons that are constantly changing in Real time. The graphic style I like very much does not look like next Gene Hardcore Graphics but has its own unique Charm. I also like the Characters in the Story all very well and in general the Story is a lot of Fun. Also the Fact that there are no fixed classes that limit you to certain Skills and Equipment I find very good because you can put together your very own Classes.
