Cheapmas Day Sixteen: Flight of the Paladin

Today’s game was Flight of the Paladin and it was beaten with time to spare, so it’s not a very long game. It’s a competent vertical shooter where you take control of a sluggish paladin as he rides through the woods to defeat all manner of gothic beasties including three bosses. The problem is that there isn’t much to it, obviously. There’s no power ups and no story to speak of with the only difficulty spike coming from obstacles in the game world. The music is good and provides a decent atmosphere but this is nothing but the seed of a better game.

Today’s ornament is a bat as there are more bats in this game than any other game in existence:

Let’s slap this sucker on the tree.

It’s hardly on there, huh? Lovely regardless. Well, pop back in tomorrow.
