Target Acquired: Panzer Paladin

Tribute Games is the studio behind Wizorb, Mercenary Kings, Curses ‘n Chaos, Flinthook, and technically Ninja Senki - all of which are chunky retro-style action games - and they're back with Panzer Paladin... a chunky retro-style action game. You take the role of the titular paladin who clunks around the world in power armor, slashing baddies with melee weapons that wear down as she deals damage. But she can collect weapons from fallen enemies and swap between them, or sacrifice them to cast spells. The pilot of the power armor is comparatively small and is able to eject and run around on her own, reaching areas that the armor cannot fit, and even doing a bit of grappling along the way. She's not all that handy in a fight, but fortunately, she can use teleportation pads to summon her armor back to her. The game offers more than a dozen levels, most of which may be played in any order, with numerous weapons to be found along the way, and special weapons earned by defeating bosses.

The game is now available for PC via Steam and Switch via eShop. Check our coverage here.
