Update v1.1.3 for the action platformer Shovel Knight Dig is now available on all platforms. This patch brought a lot of bug fixes and improvements, especially the fix that resolves an exploit while using Burrow Horns.

Burrow Horns is an accessory in Shovel Knight Dig that allows the titular character to jump and deal damage to anything that’s above him. That said, there was an exploit where it was possible to overlap with the Drill Knight’s sprite and deal significant damage. This is no longer possible in Update v.1.1.3.

Aside from that, players with high refresh rate monitors can enjoy the game even more now, thanks to the animation improvements implemented by the developers.
