Battle Princess Madelyn is clearly an homage to Capcom titles about slaying ghouls, ghosts and goblins but presented in an endearing, story within a story fashion. There are plenty of times where the unclear objectives can cause feelings of frustration to overrule the feelings of fun, and deaths that feel cheap aren’t exactly a rarity, but Battle Princess Madelyn nails the retro feel.
It’s a bedtime story based on a nightmare that somehow comes out on the more pleasant, earnest end of that old school madness, and while it’s a pain in the butt to find your way around without a map, the gorgeous settings and pitch-perfect platforming action make it feel worth the struggle.
This led to a lot of unnecessary repetition. Yet the bosses made this same repetition a calming, essential activity. For every part of the game I slammed up against, it was bookended by some excellent moments. While not always clearly defined, Battle Princess Madelyn is still a damn decent excursion into the storied history of 16-bit platforming.
