Battle Princess Madelyn Hits Console and PC Tomorrow

December 5, 2018

Battle Princess Madelyn is a side-scrolling platformer in the mould of classic arcade games such as Ghosts 'n' Goblins, but one which ups the ante significantly with a selection of seriously tough bosses — many of which come from the mind of seven-year-old co-creator Maddie, daughter of Causal Games director Christopher Obritsch.

After a successful Kickstarter and two solid years of graft, the final game is launching on PC and Xbox One tomorrow. PS4 and Switch versions will be released next week.

The game is clearly influenced by Christopher's interest in the action platform genre of yesteryear, and if the trailer is anything to go by, Maddie's enemy design proves she has a bright future in the game industry.


Look out for a full review of Battle Princess Madelyn on Jump Dash Roll very soon — broken controllers seem inevitable.

Wastelands' thrilling finale means it's a step up from Rules, but it makes a few missteps in its handling of the brothers’ relationship to get there.

I've been gaming since the days of the Amstrad. Huge RPG fan. Planescape: Torment tops my list, but if a game tells a good story, I'm interested. Absolutely not a fanboy of any specific console or PC - the proof is in the gaming pudding. Also, I like cake.
