Released in Europe under the title KnightShift, Once Upon a Knight is divided into two modes — a real-time strategy mode and a role-playing mode. It tells the story of a noble and honorable prince who was sent to another dimension by an evil spell. Now, years later, the prince is able to return through a magical portal and is ready to drive the evil from his land.
Three campaigns are available in the real-time strategy mode. Each campaign takes place in a different geographical location and features a variety of tasks, such as rescuing a princess or slaying a dragon. During each campaign, the player's character will gain experience, allowing them to level up and receive access to new weapons, armor, and magic items. Players can create new characters and buildings in this mode as well. A multiplayer option allows up to eight players to have real-time battles over the Internet.
The role-playing mode features a greater selection of maps, weapons, quests, and enemies. Character development is more in-depth too, allowing users to choose their skills, manage inventory, and hire characters to aid them during their journeys. Users can play this mode alone or connect to the Internet for network matches.
Once Upon a Knight features more than 80 characters and creatures, over 20 missions, and hundreds of quests. Players can also create their own maps and campaigns with the included game editor. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
