Introduction:

Welcome to the Horned Knight Trophy Guide!
Horned Knight is a nice simplistic 2D Platformer that was developed by Josep Monzonís of 2kSomnis and published to consoles by 2Awesome Studio.

Armed with his trusty sword, can you help the brave knight fight through the caves to escape and be reunited with his family?!

Roadmap:

Step 1: Play through the first 8 Levels
At the end of this stage you may very well have the Platinum, as there is nothing too difficult about this game, as it can be played on Normal Difficulty.
You are introduced into the game via the first level, as it will guide you through the level introducing you to new mechanics as you progress.

Most, if not all trophies could be earned by the time you get to the end of the boss fight in Chapter 1.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Gold You got my heart
Gold Unstoppable Knight!
Gold First steps
Gold Dashing through the wind
Gold Invincible
Gold I believe I can fly
Gold Step by step
Gold Advancing by leaps and bounds

Step 2: Miscellaneous Clean-Up
There is a good chance that you would have gotten all these trophies buy now, however if you have not, this is the time to die over and over, block some projectiles & slay some more enemies.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Gold Dying twice wasn’t enough
Gold Slay them all!
Gold That was close
Gold Nobody can stop you

Gold Infinite resurrection
40-platinum Platinum

Tips and Strategies:

Once you have earned Gold Slay them all! feel free to dash/jump past enemies to complete the levels quicker. There are checkpoints throughout each level that reset you heart meter, so it is worth remembering that sometimes it is better to die and have full life to attempt a part in the game.
See Gold Advancing by leaps and bounds for a simplistic tip to defeat the Boss at the end of Level 8.

Platinum
Get all the trophies

Get all the trophies

Dying twice wasn’t enough Gold
Die 3 times

You will most probably achieve this naturally within the first couple of levels. The quickest way to die is to fall into the Lava, as this will take your whole life away, rather than just a “Heart”.

There is Lava in all levels you will encounter through Chapter 1.

Infinite resurrection upscale-245262160018212
Die 27 times

If you have not achieved this by the time you have completed Chapter 1 you have a perfect grinding spot just after the first checkpoint in Level 9 (First Level in Chapter 2) where you can simply press to keep falling into the Lava.

Unstoppable Knight! Gold
Defeat 10 enemies

You will earn this within Level 1, as there are exactly 10 enemies to kill as part of the tutorial.
If you’ve rushed through the Level there are plenty of enemies throughout all the levels.

Slay them all! Gold
Defeat 50 enemies

There should no need to go out of your way to kill this many enemies, as there are plenty of them within each level.
The enemies you kill prior to a death also count, so you’ll have no problems here.

See Gold Advancing by leaps and bounds for a great spot to farm enemy kills if you have not earned this by the end of Level 8.

Block 5 proyectiles

See Gold Nobody can stop you.

Nobody can stop you Gold
Block 15 proyectiles

The “proyectiles” can be thwarted by using the button to hit them with the sword just before they reach you.
This may take a little practice to get the timing, but it is not too difficult.

If you have not earned this trophy by the time you have finished Chapter 1, head back into Level 4 as there is a Snake spitting Lava right at the beginning of the Level.

You got my heart Gold
Get an extra life

See Gold Invincible.

Invincible Gold
Get 7 extra lifes

You start each level with 6 “Hearts” that can be replenished by killing enemies to gain an extra heart.

When you kill an enemy it will build a power bar up in the top left corner and once full the next enemy you kill will drop a heart. Collect this and you will gain another heart.

Dashing through the wind Gold
Do 10 dashes

See Gold I believe I can fly.

I believe I can fly Gold
Do 40 dashes

A dash is executed by pressing and is learnt during Level 1 and you will earn this trophy naturally as you progress through the Levels.

First steps Gold
Complete tutorial

Complete the first Level. There is nothing difficult at all about this level, due to the nature of it being an introductory level.

You do not even have to go through the Tutorial Steps to earn the abilities, as you can simply dash your way through the whole level to the exit.

Step by step Gold
Complete level 3

Awarded for completing the first 3 Levels. 
If you are struggling to complete a certain part of the level note that there are checkpoints throughout each level that reset you heart meter. It is worth remembering that sometimes it is better to die and have full life to attempt a part in the game.

There are on occasions some trickier platforming sections that involve dashing to another part, but in all honesty this is a very easy level.

Advancing by leaps and bounds Gold
Complete first chapter

Awarded after defeating the “Boss” within Level 8.
This is a very easy boss fight where you can simply stand at either the Left, or Right side of the screen and keep pressing to defeat all enemies, including the Boss.
You will get hit on occasions, but the amount of smaller enemies you kill will keep you hearts replenished.

You can of course try to run around and time your hits correctly if you wish…..

  • This is not a 1/10 games it’s more 2 or 2.5

    • What makes you think this @Travis? Why would you suggest a 2-2.5?

  • It was a 2 for me but I’m not the best at the dash type games.
    Perfect guy Dino. Thanks for your time in putting it together.
