Fans of classic Defender-like arcade shoot'emup action will be entralled with Paladin and its city protecting space action. With multitudes of upgrades and ships, a rad as heck soundtrack, and massive bosses it's a Defender for modern times.

In the spirit of Puppygames' classic brand of modernized classic formulas, infused with a bright and flashy visual and audio style Paladin takes the classic arcade shooting formula of the 80's and gives it an addictive flair with frenetic and fast combat through waves of increasingly chaotic variations of alien baddies. From Qix-style line creating spiral enemies to homing-missile launching dive bombers, the range and diversity of clever enemies to dodge and destroy is impressive.

It's intense, flashy, bright, and attractive. It's addictive and it sounds damn good to the ears. Paladin is a bliss-out for retro arcade fans.
