    If you love retro arcade action games, and more precisely, Ghost'n Goblins wannabes, you'll love Battle Princess Madelyn. Maybe the adventure mode it's a bit harsh, not for everybody's tastes and with a high difficulty level... but if the Capcom classic it's among your all time favorite games, here you'll find a worthy heir for Capcom's legacy.

    With all this packaged together, the player is presented with a well-balanced package that gives gamers a taste of what it used to be like to be called a gamer but never pushing so hard as to cause a rage quit, tip over the arcade machine and demand your quarters back.

    Battle Princess Madelyn is a frantic, fun and very challenging title that has two different game modes, with a magnificent audiovisual design and that despite its slight technical problems is highly recommended for all players who are looking for a challenge.

    Battle Princess Madelyn looks and sounds fantastic, and half the game is a delightful spiritual throwback to a beloved action game series. It's a shame that the other half drags down the whole package--and performance issues on Switch like slowdown and stalling when moving through menus don't help, either.

    Battle Princess Madelyn tries to deliver a new twist to the old Ghosts'n Goblins formula. Unfortunately, its broken level design forbids Causal Games homage to reach the same heights as Arthur's adventure. With no clues on what to do or where to go, even players looking for a tough challenge will only consider the arcade mode worthy of interest, if they want to enjoy the game's gorgeous graphics and art direction.

    The game’s love for Ghosts ‘N Goblins is obvious but its refusal to cater for anyone but hardcore fans results in a frustrating and tedious slog – especially in story mode.

    The arcade mode trims most of the fat, but it lacks the challenge and polish that defined the arcade era.
