Battle Princess Madelyn


Martin Kitts

The story behind this indie one man show is quite endearing. When the developer’s daughter asked if she could somehow be in her favourite game, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, he responded as only a Game Dev Dad can do, and built her a personalised homage to Capcom’s golden oldie. Resplendent in pink armour and accompanied by the spirit of her dearly departed pet dog, this is Battle Princess Madelyn.

As was the case with the original game, we suspect the real seven year-old Madelyn will have to content herself with watching her dad play, because this retains the frantic pace and brutal difficulty level of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts. It’s a challenge for any player, even those well-acquainted with the source material.
