The demo for Locomalito's latest game, Maldita Castilla, was released on the internet today. This 2D platformer inspired by classics like Ghosts 'n Goblins features just one short level to play, but it was enough to prove that the Spanish developer already has another hit in his hands.

In Maldita Castilla you play as a noble knight during medieval times, travelling from one location to another in search of evil creatures and monsters to defeat. Though you get to collect coins from the bodies of defeated enemies and such, the shop system does not make an appearance yet in this preview build.

This freeware project marks the fourth collaboration between Locomalito and respected game music composer Gryzor87, with Marek Barej stepping forward once again to contribute another inspiring cover art. Enough reading, time to head on over to his site to download the demo.
