“Bio-Ship Paladin” Now Available on PS4, Switch via Hamster’s Arcade Archives
Game publisher Hamster has announced that Bio-Ship Paladin, the 2D horizontal scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game, is now available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.
Originally released in arcades by UPL in 1990 and ported to the SEGA Mega Drive in 1991, Bio-Ship Paladin has never received an official release in western regions until now.
In Bio-Ship Paladin, players use a variety of weapons and power ups to defeat enemies known as “The Aggressors”). While very much a space shooter of its time, Bio-Ship Paladin’s unique hook is that your ship can fire both standard forward shots in addition to multidirectional shots that are fired by aiming a separate targeting reticle, similar to Missile Command or Global Defense.
Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste.
Arcade Archives Bio-Ship Paladin is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop. You can check out some screenshots below, or visit the official Hamster website here for additional info.
