Tribute Games revealed today their first gameplay trailer for Panzer Paladin, an 8-bit weapon-smashing action-platformer game with intuitive swordplay. The trailer announces the game's release for Summer 2020 on Nintendo Switch console and Windows on Steam. It is already possible to add Panzer Paladin to your wishlist on Steam.
Hop in the Paladin power armor, seize melee weapons from the demonic invaders and give them a taste of their own medicine! Players control the powerful Paladin armor to fight their way through levels but can eject and also play as the small but swift Squire to swing across gaps and recharge the Paladin’s energy.
The trailer reveals quickly a new feature of the game called the Blacksmith. This mode allows the player to draw actual weapon pixel sprites, name them, and assign them various attributes (attack damage, durability, spell, etc.). These weapons can then be obtained in-game by defeating a certain character appearing in most levels of the game. The Paladin swordplay mechanic includes the ability to equip and use any weapon dropped by defeated enemies, a rock-paper-scissor weapon type system that grants attack bonuses, and the ability to cast spells by breaking weapons. Weapons abound in levels, so the player is encouraged to use them profusely. Tribute Games is known for Mercenary Kings (2014), a 2D mission based game with gun crafting in which the player is part of the most skilled team of warriors-for-hire and must stop the fearsome forces of CLAW. More recently, the Tribute team has released Flinthook (2017), a fast action-platformer with “roguelike” elements about the space’s greatest pirate. Tribute Games has also released Wizorb, Curses ‘N Chaos and Ninja Senki DX. Most of their games are available on various platforms (PC, Mac, Switch, PS4, PS Vita and Xbox ONE).
