how do you open doors?

p o g g .

how do you solve the QR code puzzle in the first area

You can scan the code to get a solution. Or you can look for a hint that is engraved on the floor in one of the rooms on the same floor. Also there were lots of walkthrough videos on YouTube recorded when the game came out.

how do u solve the 3*4 light puzzl

This puzzle resembles dungeon floor. In some rooms there are little faces engraved on the floor and in some there are none.

what if i dont know the entire floor layout



I played this in a random games video its cute, simple, challenging and overall fun I enjoyed this one. Thanks for making this game. 

And thank you very much for playing :3



Can not play the web version with Edge Chrome. In web console it says:

So it must mean that Newgrounds plugin for Construct 2 doesn't work properly on current version of your browser :(


controls my friend??

They are pretty standard for a game like this. Besides there are control hints engraved on the floor in some dungeon rooms.

very very fun!

I'm really glad that you like it :)

I absolutely loved this game it was very fun and reminded me of total carnage if you know that game. I enjoyed it thank you.


Heard about it but haven't played it. Thanks for playing!

(1 edit)

I love the game, but once I scanned the QR code in the first floor, I had no clue how to use it, and I don't want to go into the other rooms to get rid of progress. 

Edit: Never mind : )

OK :)


Hi! I had played your demo and uploaded on my channel. I just loved your work here. It's simple, but with a lot of fun. As a Zelda fan, I felt myself at home playing this. I will play the full version someday, it worth a lot. Congrats for the game.

Thanks for playing! I'm very glad that you enjoyed the demo ^_^

Oh hey, I used to play this on CoolMathGames. This is my favourite dungeon crawler, great game

Thanks for playing ;)

There is a puzzle room in the bottom-left corner. The one with the shiny lights one floor.

Hello Wolod! I got around to playing Knightin'+ (this was months ago), but a couple more speedrunners caught eye of Knightin' and played that, so I came back to reclaim my record and here is a little video just showing off the time of 3:26.667 Any% NMG World Record, and to tell you i'm still around. Here is the video (the splits for the timer are messed up, I had to retime the run for a accurate starting and ending frame).

I also did some speedruns of Knightin'+ and ended with a time of 35:08 (after some time of practicing and bringing my personal best time down by minutes), I think it can be under 34 minutes, but with the best rng, movement, and optimal boss fights you may be barely able to get under 33 minutes, I plan to return to the game to get under that 34 minute mark, but I may also push for under 33 minute mark as well. Anyways here is the video for the 35:08 Any% NMG World Record.

(1 edit)

Oh! Might I add that when you updated Knightin' to 1.3 (before releasing Knightin'+) it make 100% NMG way faster, it used to be 12:30 just about, but now it is 7:22.333! Due to the amulet price being dropped from 150 -> 100 and the slightly higher coin drop rate, it made the game 5 minutes faster for 100%! Anyways heres the video for the 7:22.333 100% NMG World Record (plan to improve this too as this was months ago right when I found out about the update).

Anyone interested in joining the speedrun community for Knightin' or Knightin'+ join the discord here:

Hey ExoticPanda! That's a really impressive time! Congratulations with a new world record!

Thought I would let you know that I am still around and show what has happened with the games a couple months ago. I'm trying to restart the community for speedrunning this game whether it is for Knightin' or Knightin'+. The Knightin'+ leaderboards look empty right now.

Thanks for keeping playing and setting new impressive records! I really appreciate your efforts regarding the community.

I am having issues with Knightin' on Linux. I have a ton of custom fonts installed for development purposes (Ruby and Golang dev) and the game craps the bed on launch due to Fontconfig errors, but if I move or delete the system fonts directory, it works just fine. Is there anyway to get the game to look at my user fonts directory instead or disable the check entirely?

Hello, another Linux user had found a workaround. Here is the link to the forum thread. Hope that it will work for you.

That definitely worked! Thanks!

I'm playing Knightin'+ and I think I'm stuck. I'm on the 4th dungeon. I have found two keys, but I have already used both of them. There is a third door which requires a key (in room 4-2 on level 4-2, accessed via the teleporter at room 1-1), but I cannot seem to find the third key (I think I've double-checked every room on every floor accessible to me, and the only unopened chests are currently blocked and I don't think there are any unsolved sokoban puzzles.

So you've chosen the Crimson Armor route. The first key that you can obtain is on the floor 4-3 in the room 4-1. The second one is on the floor 4-2 like you mentioned. If you collected both of them you'll have to buy the key in the shop. The boss route is pretty straightforward. You'll be able to find one key on the each floor starting from the floor 4-4 except of floors 4-6 and 4-7 (there are no keys on these two).

Thanks for the quick reply! Your response encouraged me to persevere and I have managed to make some additional progress now. (Specifically, I previously somehow missed the instructions on level 4-5 about how to activate the lanterns, now that I've figured that out more rooms are opening up). Anyway, thanks for making this game, it is really fun!

Was glad to help and thanks for playing!

(1 edit)

So, I'm stuck. Floor 4-3 Dark Temple. I had 2 keys, I'm guessing I was supposed to use both keys on 4-3, but used one of them on 4-4. I need the key for the bottom left room on 4-3 in order to progress any further on 4-4. I've went through every room several times backtracking but to no avail. Have I missed something or will I have to completely restart the game?

Edit: This is for the Knightin+ version on Xbox1.


Hey! You don't have to restart the game. I've just replied to your email ;)

You're awesome! Thanks so much! 


is the qr code supposed to just say i

QR codes contain solutions to the puzzles. Both of them contain codes that consist of numbers or arrow symbols. Also you can solve puzzles without using codes. Hints are scattered on the dungeon's floor.

10/10 amazing game, would love to see more of this

Thank you! There is an extended version actually. It has a free demo here: https://wolod.itch.io/knightin-plus-demo


oh great, checking it out right now 

Hope you'll like it. I'm going to update the demo today btw.

Thanks for playing and for the video! You might be interested in the advanced and extended version of this game called Knightin'+. There is a free demo of it here too.

really fun game I liked the qr code thing too

Thank you for playing! It's cool that you dig the qr code mechanic! I thought that majority hated it.

It's really good. I like the graphics. The music can get annoying, but overall great game. You put a lot effort I can tell

Thank you!

is knightin + out? It's nearly the end of march

also computer fixed!

Congrats! That's great news!

Sorry for not responding in a while. I had personal issues this month and hadn't time to  work on Knightin'+ during the last 3 weeks :(

But I have good news too. I'm going to make a closed beta test and you're invited! If everything will be fine I'll be able to start it next week. I haven't found any means to send private messages on itch.  Therefore send me your contacts (e.g. email) please so I'll be able to send you a beta key when it's out.  Below is the list of my contacts. Choose the most convenient option for you.


facebook. Cause that's the only one I can login to.

Also thanks for inviting me! 😀 Sorry about what happened(can't do it if I didn't do it),glad your ok.😀 just one question, will knightin+ be free?

username for Facebook Henry henry.

I don't want to upset you, but Knightin'+ won't be free. But it will be cheap and have free demo. You'll have access to the full game anyway. So don't worry :)


hope you like it :-) 😊😀😁


Here from Nymphiad. My friends had a lot of fun watching me fall in a loop. It had a great concept and playthrough. Only got fully stumped once so the walkthrough was super helpful. Can't wait for part two! Glad you have more games to tide me over!


Thanks for playing my games! I can't promise Nymphiad 2 right now, but sequel to Knightin' is on the way :)

that's a jumbled mess though. XD. But this is Darkcreeperlord.

Wolod! Long time no see./me commet. XD. anyways how's knghtin+ going. My name and profile picture may be different but that's cause I'm on mobile and I forgot my password. xd.

Hey DarkCreeperLord! Thanks for not forgetting about me :)

I decided to take a tiny break before Knightin'+ release and participate in Pixel Day on Newgrounds. It's the same annual contest  in which I participated with original Knightin' last year. This time my entry is a little puzzle platformer called Nymphiad. I'm going to release it tomorrow by the way.

Knightin'+ is on the final polishing stage. I'm going to make a trailer and add all the final touches right after the contest. I'll try my best to release it in the first half of February.

cool! My birthday is in February also of course I wouldn't forget about you Wolod knightin will always take a special  place is my heart it's too good! :-) 

(1 edit)

it will be a while that until I fix my computer but as an idea try adding mobile version too so computer or not anyone can play it! Just some food for thought though. :) 


or some new characters/classes to make the game be different for everybody but again that's just some food for thought.:) 

interesting i decided to check in and im trying to find Nymphiad? is it on Gamejolt?

Thank you for all the suggestions. Game is 99% finished and I won't have enough time to add new playable characters. Release has been delayed few times already. But I like this idea very much. Perhaps I'll make an addon or dlc (or how are these things are called nowadays :D ) with this feature after the release.

That's cool! Happy upcoming birthday to both of us ;)

(1 edit)

woah I didn't know your birthday is in February as well! :-)  How old will you be? I'll share after you share. XD 

don't say.I said just for the lels.

I don't keep my age in secret. But I won't tell for the sake of a joke XD

When will it be finished?

(1 edit)

This game is already finished. But I guess that you're asking about a sequel called Knightin'+.  It's almost done. Final dungeon is almost finished. I'm going to release it right after the winter holidays. You may expect new update for Knightin' and demo of Knightin'+ soon.

(2 edits)

so, whats the difference? i  thought  Knightin' was a demo of a full game .

(1 edit)

This is just a small game made for a contest. I didn't plan to expand it at first. But lots of people all over the internet convinced me to change my mind. Knightin'+ is a sequel that will have a separate demo version. Why don't I want to use this game as a demo? I liked my idea with QR codes containing solutions. But unfortunately most of the gamers disliked it very much. So I removed them in sequel and redesigned the first dungeon. I want this particular game to remain in its original form as a contest entry with QR codes :)

oh, now i understand, thank u for ur time, one last question, the sequel will be larger than Knightin'?


Yes, of course. As you know Knightin' consists of one tiny dungeon. In sequel you'll be able to explore 4 different dungeons (each bigger than the previous).

Hey whats up Wolod! I just was asking you had told people about Knightin'+ release was in the Summer of 2018. Its now Fall 2018 and a month from Winter. Just wondering whats going. Cya.

Hey ExoticPanda! Glad that you're asking. I had some problems that distracted me from the development of Knightin'+ for a few months. So yes, I didn't complete it in time. Currently I'm working on the final dungeon. Stay tuned!

Thanks for the update!

Hi, thanks for create this game, you're awesome! Thanks for not be like other devs, that doesn't create games for Linux, because its not a viable platform! You'are the future of gaming, a good future!

Thank you! Just trying my best ;)

You truly are when knightin + is out!

Hi there, thank you for posting up a fun game to play. No story = no fancy ending ;)

Anyhow, there was quite a bit of backtracking involved, but it was never boring because each floor had a few items to pick up, and thankfully the shopkeeper sells the same things on each floor.

The fact that there are infinite lives for the player made this game more relaxed towards mistakes, which helped as I kept dying to the bullet-shooting monsters :p

Thank you for making this game, and I look forward to what you'll release in the future :)


Thank you for this very informative review!

I'm going to release extended version/sequel of Knightin' really soon. I haven't uploaded all of my older games to itch yet (but I'll do it one day). You may check them out if you want. My full game collection can be found on gamejolt and on my website.

Wait a minute, you're the creator of Ivan Fukkoff and Sunkin's Wrath!? I enjoyed playing those games, thought I could never quite finish the Sunkin game, probably because it got too hard at a particular boss, though I'm not sure which one :p


Yes, I am :)

Which boss was too hard? I can give a hint 

Aha :D

Anyhow, I haven't played the game for some time, so I think I got stuck at the giant wizard boss that shoots projectiles at you while jumping in and out of a lava-filled hole in the ground


It's the final boss. His only weak spot is the eye. You have to use trampolines to reach the height needed for attack. He's not too hard if you have obtained the energy shield from the shop. Shield costs 5 diamonds which are all located in the same location (ethereal city).

good game and i hope you do well but there was one thing though the game when you were going through a door if you were to close to the top of the door it would faze through the door a  little bit when going through right and left doors but this is a great game and i think hat it will catch on.

Thanks for the bug report. I'll fix it soon.

you are such a good dev and i hope you keep it up not a lot of devs actually respond to stuff like that but you did and i think you can make it big in this world keep it up :)

Thank you! I'll try my best :)

One of THE BEST games I have ever played. If you make this into a bigger series, I will certainly buy it, hands down!

Thank you very much! I'm working on an extended version actually. It will be called Knightin'+ and I'm going to release it really soon.

I'm excited to see it!

I am only just now learning how to make a Zelda like game myself. I hope with time, that mine will be as good as yours someday!

And I'll be very excited to play your game as soon as it'll be finished :)

Nearly 11k of views on this fantastic game. Keep up the great work everyone.
