You are earth's last hero - defend civilization from annihilation.

Protect the cities, destroy the aliens and upgrade your fighter. Drive back the vile invading scum and save mankind in this frantic twin-stick shooter!


You pilot a highly manoeuvrable space fighter across a 2d landscape, charged with saving the last remaining human cities from destruction.

With its roots in retro, side scrolling classic arcade games like Defender, Paladin mixes old school gameplay with a modern 360 degree twin-stick control scheme and vibrant vector style glowing graphics.

Each alien killed releases a cash bounty - collect these and upgrade your fighter's abilities at the end of each level. Replenish your shields? Go big on nukes? Max up your standard cannon? The choice is yours.

  • 40 levels to progress through.
  • 5 star fighters to pilot - choose your favourite.
  • Kill aliens, earn cash and upgrade your craft.
  • Blast your way through waves of asteroids, hunters, drones, spawners, grunts and many, many more.
  • 4 evil end of level bosses to battle along the way.
  • Multiple Achievements to chart your progress throughout the game.
  • Are you hardcore, or just want to chill out? A selection of difficulty levels to match your mood.
