Check out Maldita Castilla, a homage to arcade platformers

Spanish independent developer Locomalito has released a new game called Maldita Castilla, which is his ode to the arcade platformers of old, such as Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, Black Tiger and Karnov.

The game mixes the platforming action of the aforementioned games with European mythology and draws inspiration from the landmark novel Amadis de Gaula, one of the most influential series in literary history.

You can download the game here. It’s free, but you get a few extras if you donate to the author.
