Knight Elite is a hack-and-slash defense game developed by ePlaybus and published by Ninja Kiwi. The player takes on the role of a knight whose castle is plagued by a sea of orcs when he accidentally builds his home on a sacred plot of land. The fortress has six entrances, which makes it quite easy for enemy barbarians, orcs, and other monsters to take over the castle. Players must withstand 50 waves of these terrors in order to win the game. To prevent them from gaining in on the fortress, the player must build defensive structures, unlock new weapons and equipment, and train soldiers.
To control the knight’s movements, the player must use the W, A, S, and D keys. Tapping the Q key enables the player to launch a ranged attack and shifting to the E key launches a melee. If the player wishes to pause the game, s/he can press the ESC key or the space bar. Enemies will attempt to attack the castle and fortifications, so the player must try to prevent this from happening. If the orcs manage to knock down a structure, the player can repair it by pressing the F key. To summon soldiers, the player must press the G key.
