Knights And Bikes!
Knights And Bikes! is a hand-painted adventure in a fictional late-eighties British Isles. You work together as Nessa and Demelza who explore its coast on bikes to find treasure, mystery and trouble. There’s fighting with frisbees, water balloons, tape cassettes and puddle-stomping. And as you explore the island, you acquire new abilities. As the two heroes encounter an adult world, it’s their ingenuity, friendship and wide-eyed wonder that guide the adventure.
The game combines an imaginative childhood world with classic coming-of-age films like The Goonies. Things are kept light but include a moving backstory of the passing of one of the character's mother and the journey to come to terms with that in the family.
As you progress, you take the two friends on a mysterious adventure; talking to locals, exploring each location and collecting items to progress the story. Slowly you uncover what is going on in your home town, but also the interior life of the two protagonists.
The game also has a series of books by Gabrielle Kent that expands the world and character of the island, while taking Nessa and Demelza on new adventures. In addition, there is an animated cartoon in the works and you can download a recipe to make the cream tea you have in the game.
The result is a fun adventure that has the feel of a Saturday morning cartoon show. Taking charge of either Nessa or Demelza and exploring the island on their bike is an entertaining and well-observed recreation of backwater holiday destinations.

Rated PEGI 7 for non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. This game features combat between children and fantasy characters. The overall visual style is similar to graphic styles found in Saturday morning cartoons and makes the violence found in combat over-the-top and unrealistic. Next to that, this game also features scenes in which a curse plays a major role. These scenes feature effects, sounds and characters that might scare young children.
